Architecture and interior design aficionados can bask in the built environment of Northeast’s Brookland neighborhood from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on June 2, when the 19th annual Brookland House and Garden Tour is scheduled to take place. The tour will feature eight properties, half midcentury moderns and one a unique round house built in 1901, according to its organizers.
The homes are generally located within three blocks of each other and can be visited in any order, with stops lasting for about 15 to 20 minutes each. Photography is permitted and the event, held by the nonprofit Greater Brookland Garden Club, is rain or shine. Tickets go for $15 to $25 apiece, depending on when they are purchased, plus fees, though children under 15 may attend free of charge. Proceeds will help fund the upkeep of Brookland green spaces.
Brookland, a tranquil neighborhood located on Metro’s Red Line and home to the Catholic University of America, remains an attractive place to buy for many. It’s not the only District neighborhood with an annual house and garden tour, though: LeDroit Park boasts one also.
