The first ever Weird Homes Tour takes place next weekend, but we've got a treat for you ahead of the tour. Keep reading for a peek inside some of the weird homes featured this year.
The self-guided tour, which features seven homes, takes place from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, September 13. Tickets, $22, are available online at www.weirdhomestour.com.
Twenty percent of all ticket sales goes directly to Caritas of Austin, www.caritasofaustin.org, an organization that provides affordable housing for those experiencing poverty and links them to resources to achieve self-sufficiency.
The Artists Retreat
This Mexico-inspired hacienda, located in Crestview, is the hidden artists retreat of its owner, Darryl Freeman and his wife. Behind its hand-built, six-foot-tall, limestone walls, you'll find a chicken yard, two koi ponds, an aviary, many tropical and native Texas plants and a rain collection system that sustains it all.
