The 23rd Annual Wimberley Community Civic Club Home Tour - Featuring the Garrido, Jackson, Regan, Thompson, Treadwell, Umphrey and Wright Homes


Sponsored by the Wimberley Community Civic Club, the 2010 Hill Country Homes Tour for the Holidays is Friday & Saturday, November 19h and 20th from 10 AM to 5 PM. Seven unique homes are featured for 2010..

The Wimberley Community Civic Club chose seven beautiful homes for the 2010 Hill Country Home Tour, November 19-20, showcasing the broad variety of homes in the Wimberley community. The 2010 tour offered a 400-acre estate, a Blanco riverfront, a contemporary with 180-degree views, a home sitting atop the "Divide," a hacienda in the truest sense, a Woodcreek North home dressed to the nines for Christmas with an Irish flair, and a 1930s Cypress Creek cottage with one of the oldest Cypress trees around.

Be sure to mark your calendars for this event next year and help the Civic Club raise money to give to the Wimberley community. Remember that while enjoying the tour you will be helping our community. The Home Tour in the fall and Spring Event (formerly Hobby Lobby) in the spring are the two fund-raising events the Civic Club sponsors to raise money for agencies and organizations in the community each year. Typically, the Civic Club gives monetary gifts to 25 community entities and scholarships to 10 graduating high school seniors.

An eighth stop on the tour is the historic Winters-Wimberley House where you will find a wide assortment of handcrafted items, theme baskets, and a delectable selection of baked goods, candies, pickles and preserves in the home's original parlor from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Visitors enjoy stocking up for the holidays.

The 23rd annual "Hill Country Home Tour," sponsored by the Wimberley Community Civic Club, was November 19 and 20 from 10 am - 5 pm each day. Tickets were available at the Visitors' Center and each home, as well as the Gift and Bake shop located at the Winters-Wimberley House. For more information call 512-847-0066 or visit the Civic Club page.

Hacienda Antepasados, Masterfully Refined by Ryan Jackson

The design of the hacienda was sparked by the owner’s vast collection of authentic architectural elements from the Spanish Colonial era. Some of these elements include hand-caved pavers featured in its traditional courtyard, clay tile roofs, and fenestrations that date back to the 17th century.
