Six houses in Northeast Kansas City’s Pendleton Heights neighborhood will open to the public on Saturday, December 2, from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. as part of the 11th annual Pendleton Heights Homes Tour.

The homes featured in this year’s all have one thing in common: renovations.

“All of the houses this year have been recently updated,” said Pendleton Heights Neighborhood Association President Jessica Ray. “They’re kind of a mix of modern and historical finishes. It’s a great tour for inspiration on your own projects.”

Tickets can be purchased ahead of the event for $12 at pendletonheights.org, or by calling 816-875-0162. Tickets can also be purchased in person on the day of the event for $15. The ticket booth, along with event programs and the artist marketplace, will be located at 319 Park Avenue.

“There will be fiber arts, photography, painting, jewelry,” said Ray of the marketplace. “It’s a good variety.”

Additionally, Pendleton Heights will bring in two food trucks for the event – Derr’s Weiner Wagon and Chicken Mac & Cheese Mobile. All of the attractions, including the six homes, will be within walking distance, in and around Park Avenue and Ord Street.

“This is a part of the neighborhood that’s never been on tour,” said Ray. “Two of the six houses are actually rentals. It’s just kind of fun to have a highlight of some of the quality rental homes on tour.”

Ray is excited for attendees to see the homes, and hopes that the experience encourages investment in the Pendleton Heights neighborhood. She added that there are a couple of homes for sale that are “really close” to the tour and are in need of inspired owners like those whose homes who will be featured on Saturday.

“Many of these were in really bad shape when they were purchased,” Ray said. “It’s exciting to see the way people have restored them and cared for them. Every one of them is a labor of love.”
