France Home on House Tour

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

The Jamie and Amy France home, 203 Northwood Blvd., is one of five houses on the 29th annual Delta Theta Tau Holiday Home Tour set for Saturday, Nov. 19 from 1-5 p.m. The two-story, three-bedroom Spanish Revival home, constructed in 1927, is nestled on the edge of Northwood Addition (recently placed on the state historic register). The front entry features original polished stone flooring. The living room is furnished with rustic mission-style furniture and features a handcrafted entertainment center and authentic Southwest Native American décor. A formal dining room has homeowner-crafted stained-glass windows and a variety of prints by wildlife artist and Brown County resident and family friend, William Zimmerman. The Florida room has tile flooring and original french doors. A breakfast nook features a handmade wine storage rack built from the salvaged leaded-glass doors of the home's original corner curio cabinet, while a recently remodeled kitchen has ample counter and cabinet space and new appliances. Admission to the home tour is $8 per person. Tickets are available at Eitel's Flowers, Treasures on the Square, Ambler-Hill Florists, Almost Home and Curves. [Order this photo]

It was wonderful to see this article. My parents, Maribel and Russell Dozer, my sister, Ellen, and I lived in this house from the late 1950s until 1964. (Russell died in 1961.) It sounds like the current owners have done a wonderful job of decorating the house to fit the style. I wish I could have been there to tour the house!
