The First Fall at the Beach Kitchen Tour offers virtual tours of the most innovative and stylish homes and kitchens on the Delaware coast.
This is a virtual video tour of 12 distinctive and diverse kitchens and homes of the Lewes and Rehoboth regions, with features ranging from unique design and technology to beach settings, historical significance and even innovations to age in place.
The video of the multi-part tour is approximately one hour long and will be available for viewing for a month starting Sunday, October 10. It can be viewed as a whole or in episodes.
Stops include The Bayview Retreat, The Old School, The House With Three Lives, The English Cottage, a 1935 classic recently shot for HGTV, The Schell Brothers’ Private Homes and several others.
The tour video is created by filmmaker Rob Waters and his W films, and includes interviews with owners, designers and builders.
Tickets can be purchased for $ 25 from the Village Volunteers website, villagevolunteer.org. Tickets give viewers full access for a month and are available in advance and throughout the month period.
Proceeds from the tour help support the nonprofit village volunteers in their efforts to help older neighbors live independently by helping them with transportation needs, housework and other services. In particular, the profits help Village Volunteers to offer memberships at reduced prices.
The main sponsors are Schell Brothers and Lee Ann Wilkinson Group.
The tour is a fundraising event for Village Volunteers, a state-honored nonprofit group based in Lewes, Rehoboth and Milton that, since 2013, has been helping seniors live independently for as long as possible.
“One thing I learned from visiting these different and beautiful kitchens is that the kitchen is the new living room. This is where we cook, do our homework, laugh with our family and entertain. No more formal dinners in a separate room. We want to be together, ”said tour president Janet Davis.
