Six opulent abodes previously on the Bird Rock Home Tour are back this year by popular demand, including the largest home from a previous tour, a house with a historic designation, and examples of beach and traditional architecture and design.

However, people hoping to find out which six of these residential gems are on the tour, will have to wait, as home locations are kept under wraps until the day of the tour, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26.

“It is like the secret home tour,” said Michelle Fulks, who serves as event co-chair with fellow Bird Rock Community Council (BRCC) member Celeste Trudeau.

Proceeds from the 7th annual tour, sponsored by the BRCC, will benefit Bird Rock Elementary School. Last year’s event raised more than $9,000.

Tickets are $20 for BRCC members and $25 for all others, and are available on the day of the tour in front of Bird Rock Coffee Roasters (5627 La Jolla Blvd.).

BRCC has billed this year’s event as its “Re-View Tour.”

“We’re reviewing six homes that have been on the tour over the past six years … because we have had a request from people that they be on the tour again,” Fulks said. “They’re six beautifully-appointed homes where the homeowners are showing the best of pride in ownership.”

Fulks said interior designs “range the gamut from very traditional to very modern with a lot of flair,” as well as homes incorporating epurposed building materials. The annual walking tour serves as a great way for neighbors to meet and reconnect — attracting everyone from the architectural aficionado to those interested in keeping up with the Joneses, she said.

Golba Architecture, owned by Bird Rock resident Tim Golba, is back as lead event sponsor for the sixth year. Other home tour sponsors are Wells Fargo Bank, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, Witt Lincoln, Realtor Linda Daniels, Girard Avenue Collection, Redline Construction, The UPS Store, Lele’s Cleaners, Hydrangea Cove, Gamboa Gardening and HomeScape Succulents.

Photography is not allowed on the tour.
