The 24th Kiawah House Tour returns on November 13
For nearly a quarter of a century, the Charleston Symphony Tour of Homes has showcased some of the finest upscale gated community residences on Kiawah Island, where multi-million dollar mansions are common.
On November 13, the tour, sponsored by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, returns for its 24th year, offering a fun way to explore the resort town while supporting the symphony, according to event chairperson Susan Leggett.
“The houses on the tour feature dazzling architecture and magnificent views of the island,” said Leggett.
The self-guided tour will showcase a variety of beautifully decorated homes, reflecting the varied interests and lifestyles of their owners. Inside the houses, music will be performed by symphonic musicians and talented music students. A variety of home architecture and designer styles will be included.
The tour will be followed by a free 5 p.m. concert presented by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra at the new West Beach Conference Center.
Advance tickets cost $ 55 until November 6 and will be available at csolinc.org. Tickets can also be purchased from Indigo Books in Freshfields Village or the Kiawah Island Civic Center on Betsy Kerrison Parkway. Tickets will be sold on the day of the event at Freshfields Village Green for $ 60 each.
All proceeds from the event will support the symphony and scholarships for talented student musicians in the Lowcountry.
Guests will first collect tickets and programs at 9:30 a.m. at Freshfields Village and then proceed with the home visit from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Masks will be mandatory and social distancing will be respected. Participants may only wear shoes with flat heels, and there is no disabled access for the houses included.
