Turtle Creek Association Hosting Virtual Home Tour

The Turtle Creek Association will take virtual visitors on a tour of five residences on the 2021 Turtle Creek Association Tour of Homes.

The homes will be featured in the 20th annual, ‘Life Elevated’-themed event hosted by local TV personality Ron Corning beginning at 1 p.m. Oct. 9. The event is the signature fundraiser for the Turtle Creek Association, which is a nonprofit focused on the preservation, enhancement, and protection of the Turtle Creek Corridor. 

 “By bringing people inside stunning Turtle Creek homes through a virtual tour, we are able to make improvements to the creek’s public outdoor spaces. The continued preservation and beautification of this Dallas treasure is an ongoing labor of love. We are so appreciative of the community and sponsors who help us make it financially possible,” said  Turtle Creek Association President JD Trueblood. 

Homes on the tour include The Claridge, which features an open, modern atmosphere with large expanses of glass windows and walls that allow for spectacular park views. The ‘grand dame’ of Turtle Creek at 3525, which boasts rich, layered interior design highlighting a series of eras and movements. A modern contemporary at The Warrington at 3831 Turtle Creek Boulevard boasts flexible open spaces designed to blur the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors with skyline views. An authentic mid-century modern at 3525 Turtle Creek Boulevard designed by Harwood Hamilton Harris in the early 1960s. A two-story penthouse at The Warrington owned by the late Judy Pittman, who was known as “the Queen of Turtle Creek Boulevard.”

Tickets for the virtual tour of homes are $25, and viewers can get access to the tour as well as a bottle of wine and a charcuterie board provided by Salum Restaurant for $175.

In addition to the tour, guests of an exclusive benefit reception will gather inside the headquarters of the Perot Companies from 7-10 p.m. Oct. 9, where they will have “unprecedented access” to Perot Legacy Hall, which showcases the collection of historical artifacts from H. Ross Perot.
