Hundreds of local residents toured some of Ponte Vedra Beach’s most distinctive homes Saturday, as five local families opened their doors for the annual Legacy Trust Ponte Vedra Beach Home & Art Tour.
Held April 8, the self-guided tour enabled visitors to tour homes located on Ponte Vedra Boulevard, Lake Road, Roscoe Boulevard and in Marsh Landing that reflected a myriad of architectural styles and interior design concepts. From sleek contemporary homes and European-inspired estates to oceanfront retreats, each tour home also featured an artistic component, showcasing the works of local artists and the ways in which the owners incorporated art and color into their overall design.
To celebrate the return of the annual event, a “Benefactor Reception” was held Friday, April 7 at the Marsh Landing home of Ron and Hilah Autrey. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and refreshments as well as the chance to meet several local artists. Also on hand was architect Richard Skinner, who designed the Autreys’ 11,000 square-foot home located on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Proceeds from the Home & Art Tour benefit the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach’s educational programs.
