About the Tour

Visitors to the 2014 Holiday Homes Tour on Dec. 7 tour will get a close-up look at four distinctive Vista residences with outstanding architectural details and breathtaking interiors. Their beauty and elegance will be enhanced with holiday decor by a team of talented designers.

Here’s a preview of what’s in store for visitors to the 2014 Holiday Homes Tour:
Jazzercise founder Judi Sheppard Misset and her husband Jack share a home that reflects their love of modern architecture. Airy and awash in natural light, the home has a whitewashed exterior, expansive windows , and an interior filled with pop art, modern furniture and stunning photographs. A lap pool, koi pond with waterfall, metal sculptures designed by Judi and xeriscape of cactus, rocks and succulents come together to create a breathtaking outdoor space.
Stylish and comfortable, Michelle and Keith Berman’s one-level home has spectacular views and exceptional features like arched custom windows, walnut wood floors, a living room with beams and an 11-foot eating island in the kitchen. Walls are lined with the art work of Walter Peregoy, Michelle’s grandfather and acclaimed living artist, known for his art work in Disney classics such as 101 Dalmatians and Lady and the Tramp.
An Ode To Italy
Art and antiques from around the world, such as an 18th century gold leaf mirror from the Palace of Versailles and a hand-carved two-drawer chest by a Scottish folk artist create a stunning visual symphony in Patty and Dave Sliney’s spectacular home. The carefully landscaped one-acre garden is divided into five sections with features such as fruit trees, rose bushes, a secret garden and a tropical jungle area!
Villa Del Vino
June and Toby Dunn’s love of food, wine and travel are reflected throughout this beautiful home, evocative of an elegant Italian villa. Filled with antique European furniture and custom art, the home’s distinctive architectural features include painted concrete columns, an Art Deco wall that surrounds the fire place and hand-carved grape moldings on the tops of custom painted cabinets.
