Roly Shaipc-Biash/rhe Daily Journal One of the homes on the house tour Is that of Max and Joan Schlienger on Highland Avenue. House tour coining up soon T he annual Spring House Tour and Tea, sponsored by the Sun House Guild, will offer the public rare glimpses inside some of Ukiah's most beautiful and unique homes. This year, four homes and one restored office building will be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 16. Tea is offered at the Sun House throughout the tour; some people like to start their day with tea, others end up at the Sun House, still others take a mid-tour break for a cup of tea and some tasty finger sandwiches and other light hors d'oeuvres. Art by Francine Beardon will be on sale during the tea. Among the houses on the tour is the home of Karen and Doug Atkinson at 671 Park Boulevard in Park West Estates. Built in 1991 by Jeff Rea Construction, the exterior features landscaping by Mehdo? cino Landscape Associates. The 2,800-square-foot home is built on two levels and features three bedrooms and a spacious kitchen with adjoining family room and family dining area. A large corner brick fireplace gives the house a cozy feeling. The backyard landscaping is colorful and visible from glass doors from the family room and master bedroom. A downtown tour stop is a fascinating example of creative re-use. A gorgeous Victorian at 308 S. School Street will be open. This structure, which is owned by attorney Mary Ann Villwock, is now used as offices but retains its 19th Century charm. Built in 1889, the two-story building reflects Eastlake design and is highly decorated with applied ornaments and brackets. A balustraded balcony is prominent on the second floor. The house is made entirely of first-growth redwood and has always been painted in the colorful Victorian style. Typical of many homes of the era, the front "company" rooms are elaborate and expensively ornamented; rear family rooms are plainer. The upstairs has six bedrooms, now used as offices. Passageways are papered with lincrusta that is original and in excellent condition. This gorgeous wallpaper looks very much like tooled leather and was very common in finer Victorian homes. The property where the home now stands was bought in 1870 by Lafayette Van Dusen Sr. for $250. The home was built and the property passed through another owner and was bought in 1872 by Henry and Charles Hofman for $1,200; the home was sold in 1914 to Thomas Montas Cleland, a rancher and lawman. His wife, Lucy Gibson, was a descendant of some of Mendocino County's earliest settlers. The Clelands owned the home until 1951, when il was sold to Vernon and Mildred Davis. In 1978, Al Niderost, a local contractor, bought the home and did extensive renova- "tjpn,.wi)rk .on-it. In 1981, the house was awarded the Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce's first annual achievement citation foTExcellence in Building Restoration. County Supervisor Frank McMichael's construction firm, Design Works, did the most recent renovation on the beautiful building. The stunning home of Max and Joan Schlienger, 490 Highland Avc., will be a popular slop. This home has the biggest privately owned swimming pool in Ukiah — just 10 feet short of Olympic size and with two high diving boards. It is surrounded by two acres of lush landscaping that is a highlight of the drive down Highland. The home was built in 1952 by Mickey and Bill Moore, the owners of Hollow Tree Lumber Co., from a design by San Francisco architect Mario Corbett. It is constructed of virgin, hand-selected redwood, with some of the boards longer than anything that could be replaced today. The Schliengers, who own Retech, bought the five-bedroom, six-bath home in 1978 and raised their family there. This year's houses include Julie and Tim Knudsen's at 1489 Fawnwood Drive. The Knudsens bought this property, located in El Dorado Estates, in 1978, with a specific plan in mind — and hiring the work clone did not figure into their plan. Ho is Mendocino County's tax collector. The couple and Tim's two brothers built the home completely by themselves, with the exception of the foundation. After eight years, they were finally finished. The home was built on a hill in a farmhouse style. Its wrap around porch beckons you to sit and have y glass of lemonade Julie Knudsen says her friends often call her home "the Waltons' house." Other <i »tail? include a gazebo, koi pond and largt country kitchen. Julie Knudsen made the home's 15 stained-glass windows and all of the beautiful quilts you'll see in the bedrooms herself. The home is exquisitely furnished with antiques. The new home of Marilyn and Gene 'Butcher is also on the tour. Marilyn, the recently retifcd Mfendociho County Super visor, and Gene supervised the construction of this home, located at 2700 Twining Road. Ukiah. This rustic, modem ranch house was built by Rick Brandes and was designed by the Butchers, with help from Vickie Brandes. Cedar siding and adobe brick give the house a warm and welcoming countty feeling, and open beam ceilings inside add to the feeling of spaciousness The home is built on a uiu'quc site, because a hill dictated the layout. A spectacular 360-degree view of the Ukiah Valley is one of the home's most memorable features. Many lovely touches inside, including handpainted tiles and handmade stained glass by local artist Jeannette Carson, make the home breathtaking. A Carousel Carpet- designed rug in the living room is also of note. Tickets are $15 and are available by calling 462-9111 or 462-3370 or by visiting the Grace Hudson Museum, 431 S. Main St. Tickets are also on sale at the Harvest Market in Willits and Coffee, Tea and Spice and the Mendocino Book Co. in Ukiah, A Grace Hudson print, framed by Triple S Camera, will be the day's door prize.
