Allure Real Estate is a proud sponsor of  Preservation Austin's “Into the Woods” 2018 Homes Tour in Cherrywood, Delwood, and Wilshire Wood! These East Austin neighborhoods include two National Register districts, the Wilshire Wood Historic District and Delwood Duplex Historic District, and showcase an incredible collection of frame cottages, stone-fronted ranch homes, and unusual concrete-block bungalows.

Our sponsored home is owned by Isaiah Tibbs, one of the owners of Allure Real Estate. His home is a 1952 custom mid century located on over a half acre wooded lot on Ardenwood Road. He has spent the last 5 plus years restoring and renovating this gem, and you can see it on the tour! 

The tour also features other beautifully-renovated postwar homes that demonstrate the enduring strength and adaptability of our historic neighborhoods. Each one connects the past to the present, showing how modern updates can blend seamlessly with historic forms and materials. You'll hear the tellings of neighborhood histories and the stories behind local landmarks in the special tour program.

Begin the day at the main ticket station at Mueller’s 1943 Browning Hangar, and finish it with a cold beer at the after party at Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches! We can’t imagine a better or more fun way to celebrate Austin’s heritage on a beautiful spring day.

A Preservation Austin partner, Bike Austin will be providing bike racks and a recommended route for cyclists.

The first 100 guests with a tour wristband get a free draft beer and a complimentary taste of Batch’s delicious homemade kolaches. We’ll see you there!
