Bumgardner home stop on Rockville Home Tour

Thursday, December 2, 2010

The home of Brad and Susan Bumgardner is one of a handful of stops on the 2010 Rockville Home Tour, set to take place from 1-6 p.m., Saturday.
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 Brad and Susan Bumgardner is also on the Rockville Home Tour.

This sunny yellow house is just 6-months old.

Built mainly by Tony Natalie and Doug Bumgardner, Brad and Susan lent a hand by insulating, painting, pouring and staining concrete and landscaping.

The grand cathedral ceiling in the entryway invites each person into the living room, where a crackling fire welcomes all and shows off the rich mahogany wood floors.

Two sets of French doors give access to the porch. Also downstairs is a laundry room, kitchen, dining area and a master suite.

Bold colors of gold, blue, red, gray, spiced gingerbread, aged teak and pineapple upside down cake are used.

The master suite has not only two walk-in closets but also a corner fireplace.

The shower is tiled from floor to ceiling and offers the luxury of a Jacuzzi tub and two vanities.

Upstairs, a sitting area overlooks the entryway and living room, plus two bedrooms and bath.

Enjoy the lights of five Christmas trees. Each of the girl's trees hold ornaments collected through the years. Emily's Victorian tree was purchased at the Parke County Foundation's auction last year.

There is a 12-foot tree in the entry and a traditional 8-foot tree in the living room.

Ruth's Floral Creations added various arrangements and embellishments for the holiday.
