Many thanks to the weather gods for giving us such a beautiful day for A Crofton Village Christmas, the holiday home tour sponsored by Crofton Village Garden Club on December 11. In case you missed it, here are some photos taken during the tour.
Just click on the exterior photo to view a slideshow of additional photos for each home.
1563 Eton Way
Don and Antoinette Kellaher
As you step into this expanded split foyer in Old Crofton, you may be surprised to see the dining room at the top of the stairs. There’s a sitting area in the Kellahers’ original dining room and, on the other side of French doors, a great room. A giant handmade wreath of fresh greens hangs on the great room window overlooking the golf course and you’ll find fresh greens with festive bows throughout this holiday wonderland.
1557 Eton Way
Katie and John Dentler
Pineapples, boxwood wreaths, and candles welcome you to this home, where you’ll be drawn immediately to a sun room overlooking the 7th fairway of Crofton Country Club golf course—a perfect spot for the Dentler family Christmas tree. This recently-expanded home has been updated from top to bottom, but still maintains the ambiance of Colonial Williamsburg. Look for an antique hand carved wood mantle, but you won’t find it over the fireplace.
1804 Stonegate Avenue
Nancy and George Percivall
The spirit of Christmas comes early to Crofton in this delightfully decorated colonial located in the Greens of Crofton. The Percivalls’ home is trimmed with care from top to bottom with yards of garland and hundreds of hand made ornaments. Charming cookies and cookie cutters adorn the garland in the newly remodeled kitchen. Even the kid-friendly basement holds a secret you won’t want to miss!
1810 Stonegate Avenue
Linda and Wes Jordan
Welcome to “Santa Central” in the Greens of Crofton, where you’ll find a collection of 600 Santa’s mixed with Italian pottery and artifacts in every nook and cranny. Italy was home to the Jordan family for three years, and they brought a little of it back with them to Crofton. It’s evident in the Tuscan-style kitchen décor, the hand-painted village scene on a dining room wall and throughout their beautiful home.
6816 Crofton Colony Court
Betsy and Clyde Grimm
Shades of warm taupe, honey yellow, auburn, and deep peach provide a perfect backdrop for the many special features in this October 6, 2011, Annapolis Capital Home of the Week. Each space in the home is carefully and uniquely designed—from the handsomely decorated man-cave for Clyde on the main level to the rose-themed master bedroom upstairs. Holiday decorations in the Grimms’ Crofton Colony home are sure to delight us.
1511 Pearl Avenue
Sally and Gary Moore
Gary’s passion for golf and Sally’s love of good wine and design are evident in the décor of this beautiful Chapman Farm home.
You’ll see many interesting architectural and design elements as you tour every level, including the downstairs golf domain. Nontraditional colors for the holiday decorations are not the only surprise you’ll find. Look for a harlequin-pattern ceiling in the home office and black window coverings in an unlikely place.
Proceeds of this event will help support the projects and goals of the Crofton Village Garden Club and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
