THE BAYTOWN SUN S«uU«y, April IT. Ml, tMENSlON David Brinkley home included in Heritage Society home tour By KAY LUCAS Set among massive oaks, the stately old home, located just a few blocks away from the bay in Wooster at 220 Arbor, is filled with soft light that filters through 52 windows. The David Brinkley home is one of four homes to be presented on the Bay Area Heritage Society Sesquicenten- Home Tour from 1 to 5 p m May 3-4. The home literally glistens from loving attention given during ll years of restoration by owners David and Billie Brinkley. The Brinkleys are the fifth owners of the house that was built in 1930. Other than one room that has been altered and the addition of a large deck on the back of the house, remodeling has been kept to a minimum. The front room stretches almost the full length across the front of the house. It features a large fireplace at one end and arched doorways leading into the kitchen and den. The Brinkleys have stripped several layers of paint from the wooden fireplace. They have added a but- cherblock topped island in the center of the kichen, where" most of the remodeling has been done. The island serves as a bar and also holds a stove. Mrs. Brinkley employs her ar-. tistic talents to use available objects in unique ways. Using the old wooden Venetian blinds she made lattice panels for the utility room to hide the washer and dryer. An antique buffet was refitted with a marble sink top and installed in the downstairs bathroom. The large upstairs bath features a pedestal sink, mirrored dressing table and the original purple tile, hence the nickname "The Purple Potty" or "The Lavender Lavatory." Furnished with antiques on gleaming hardwood floors and Mrs. Brinkley's sculpture, the old home is a wonderful blend of 19th century romanticism and contemporary spaciousness. A GUARDRAIL surrounds the stairwell in the upstairs hallway The Brinkleys make use of the large wall space to display family portraits and an antique dresser.
