ROCKVILLE -- The annual Rockville Home Tour will take place from 1-6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4.

Tickets and maps are available at the Art Gallery on the north side of the square in Rockville. Tickets are $8 with early sales discounted to $7.

For more information, call 1-765-569-9422.

Gallery hours are daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (except closed on Tuesdays) and Sunday, from 1-5 p.m.

All five places are very different and unique.

All proceeds will go toward the gallery and scholarship fund.

The home of Jeff and Janice Vietti is located off Marshall Road.

The Vietti's are the second owners of the home, built by Don and Barbara Williams in 1976. It has four bedrooms and four baths and is located on 28 acres with a lake and two stocked ponds.

It was renovated to fit the needs of a growing family. Knocking out the supporting wall between the rooms, Jeff created a large comfy family room. A huge deck runs across the back of the house and joins the pool. Enjoy a freshly cut tree decorated in red, white and blue.

Two fireplaces with mantles of old barn beams and buck stove inserts are in the house. In the living room hang mounted game and fish Jeff has caught or hunted.

The tree in the living room sparkles with Waterford and Swarovski crystal ornaments. The mantle is decorated with a Department 56 New England village given to Janice by a cousin.

Janice's Italian heritage can be seen in the dining room where the table is laid with Lenox Christmas china, gold flatware, and crystal, all gifts from a family friend.

Eight themed trees decorated by Janice deck the house inside and out. The kitchen tree, decorated with corks and grapes, sets on the wine refrigerator. The entry hall tree sets in a 50-gallon crock adding a touch of country.

Other trees coordinate with the rooms that house them. The Bella Florista in Clinton has displayed wreaths and centerpieces in the home.
