2020 Westgate Home & Garden Tour
Long-known by west side residents as a hidden gem in the historic Hilltop area of Columbus, Westgate is just now becoming known to the rest of the city for its quiet, picturesque streets, wood-frame craftsman-style cottages and limestone accented houses, and its welcoming community feel.
The unique aspect of the Westgate Home & Garden Tour is that while the homes and gardens may be smaller in size and expense compared to other ‘tour-worthy’ neighborhoods in Columbus, Westgate properties abound with affordable, doable design ideas and efficient, creative uses for the modest indoor and outdoor spaces found here. Past tours have included a professional photography studio incorporated into a garage, a backyard retreat that made you forget you were only 5 miles from downtown, an art studio, and a two-room master bathroom with his and her vanity areas.
One tour featured a cleverly concealed solar array atop the rear roof and garage of a certified “Green Home”, and an innovative house with accessibility-minded updates highlighting the increasingly popular principles of universal design. Balancing modern technology with architectural integrity is another example of what makes homes in Westgate so unique and desirable. As our tagline says, expect to see the “unexpected”
Once again, a portion of the tour proceeds will fund the Westgate Neighborhood Scholarship. The WNA established the scholarship as an extension of our mission to help Westgate thrive.
