Wilkey home last stop of tour

Thursday, December 1, 2011

The home of Kevin and Ann Wilkey will be on display at the annual Tri Kappa Christmas Home Tour. The tour will take place Dec. 4.
Tri Kappa is proud to present the final home featured on this year's Christmas Home Tour.

Kevin and Anne Wilkey have opened their home for anxious fans of the annual home tour.

The home features ample space, 4,500-square feet of space. The home was built in 2002 by Mark Howald.

A brightly decorated 12-foot Christmas tree stands in the dining room of Kevin and Anne Wilkey. The Wilkey's home is ready for viewing during this weekend's Christmas Home Tour.
The dining room sits near the front door. A 12-foot Christmas tree stands in front of the window. The decorations mirror the color scheme of the tree skirt. Red, purple and gold ornaments cover the tree. Angels are mixed with the bright colors. As you step closer to the tree, the amount of angels is amazing.

On the opposite side of the entry way, the master bedroom provides a quiet retreat. Two armchairs sit in the window. Overhead of the four poster bed is a trey ceiling. A floral border highlights the trey ceiling. The bedding print mirrors the border above. The master bathroom provides ample space for morning preparations. Angels grace the corner of the garden tub, which is surrounded by windows.

The living room provides comfy seating that overlooks the fireplace. Glittery, colorful stockings hang from the mantel. The walls are taupe. The windows around the fireplace look out over the pool and a water feature. The adjacent kitchen is decorated in a snowmen motif. The wine walls complement the cabinetry beautifully.

Following the hallway, you will find a home office. The bathroom features palm trees. From the shower curtain and hooks to the wall art, the room will have you wishing for a tropical vacation. The guest room houses a beautiful almost black bed. The bedding is brown, tan and rust microfiber.

Upon climbing the stairs, the largest bedroom is found. The room was the favorite bedroom for the couple's children. The oldest in the house always occupied the room. All three children have taken their turn in the room. A day bed is here now for when the children come for visits. A brightly decorated tree, in colors of blue, teal and pink sits in front of a cutout that overlooks the family room.

The basement is the entertainer's dream. A big screen television sits in front of a large red sectional. Exercise equipment is placed under a small mounted television.

A well-lit pool table sits near the exercise equipment. A built-in bar is stocked nearby. A collection of Budweiser steins is showcased along the top. In the far corner of the room are two larger tables. One holds a farm scene created by the couple's son. The other holds a train collection that belonged to Kevin's father. A Christmas tree located in the room has red and green train ornaments. A running train circles the base. In the opposite corner, a collection of 4-H trophies and awards are stored, showcasing the children's accomplishments.

The home tour will take place Dec. 4, from 1-5 p.m.

The homes of Dr. Charles and Susie French, Mitch and Jessica Clausen and Paul and Amy Schorr will be on display.

Tickets are available at the main branch of Riddell National Bank. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at any home the day of the event.
