2016 Holiday Tour of Homes Highlights

7931 Tillinghast Drive

Welcome to the Tuza home. This residence sits on a large lot with an amazing view of the Tartan Fields Golf Course. The home was built in 1999 and the Tuza Family has been living in this home for five years. They chose it for its beautiful views and quiet location. Prior to ownership by the Tuzas, the home sat empty for nearly two years and needed a lot of love. The Tuza Family has poured their hears into many renovation projects here, including the great room, basement and just recently the kitchen. During the tour, the 1st floor of the home will be featured showcasing much of the renovation work.

As a family, The Tuzas celebrate two cultures, Hungarian and Puerto Rican.  A variety of ethnic foods are prepared during the holidays. The Tuzas shared with us two of their favorite holiday traditions: allowing their children to open one gift on Christmas Eve and donating a family gift to others in need.

The Pochiro Family invites you into their gorgeous home! Their residence was built in 2002 and the family has resided here for three years, after moving from New England. Each year the Pochiros celebrate Christmas with both sides of their family. They have a thirteen-year-old tradition of decorating pottery with the two Pochiro daughters. Today on tour the family is showcasing their first floor and finished a basement. In fall 2015, the family remodeled their kitchen. With Autumn’s interior design background, she was able to create a space that is functional, as well as stylish.

The family loves to entertain. You will note their custom-built L-shaped banquette with storage under the seating and gorgeous six-foot Maple raw-edge dining table. These are just a few of the many details that Autumn put her special touch on within the home.

Welcome to the beautiful Cho Residence. This 4,500 square foot home was built in 1999. The Cho family has been living in this home for five years. Today’s tour will feature the main floor, including their recently renovated kitchen. The home also has updated flooring throughout.

The Cho family enjoys the holiday season by celebrating both Christmas and Hanukkah. Their family traditions include lighting the menorah and opening gifts by the fire for each of the eight nights of Hanukkah, as well as dealing with a very naughty elf during the Christmas season.

You will see their well-trimmed Christmas tree on tour today. This is a special tradition for the Cho children, who take great pride in decorating it themselves each year.
