Don’t tear it down! is the theme of our annual house tour, Spectacular Vernacular, which spotlights the architectural qualities and charm of five vintage homes throughout Santa Monica on Sunday, September 18, from 1-5 pm.

Three different architectural styles will be featured— Victorian, Craftsman and Spanish Colonial Revival —with each home demonstrating different approaches to renovation and expansion. These homeowners chose to retain their historic homes and modify them for contemporary living rather than demolish and start anew.

Tickets are $30 for members and $35 for non-members. Tickets on the day of tour will be $35 for members and $40 for non-members. Check-in will be at the DMV parking lot at Cloverfield and Colorado.
