Residents are invited to tour five beautifully decorated homes on Sunday, December 4, during the Woman’s Club annual Holiday Home Tour. Canyon Lakers who look forward to seeing beautifully decorated homes during the holidays will want to mark their calendars for this event.

In the weeks leading up to the Home Tour, The Friday Flyer will feature each of the five homes. This week’s feature is the home of Steve and Melissa Usary at 2684 Calcutta Dr.

As you approach this “story book” home, you will enter through a pathway, into a whimsical courtyard, decorated with snow and Christmas trees.  As you cross the threshold of this lovely home you will be greeted with a sea of turquoise blue and lime green, with a grand view of the fairway and the 16th hole.

The great room hosts a large contemporary sectional and high back loveseat decorated splendidly for the holiday season. Breezing into the warm kitchen notice the wood cabinetry and granite complemented by the rich Tuscan pillars.

Venturing to the lower level you will find another grand living area which opens out to a backyard resort and entertainment area. The pool spa, and tropical bar presents an inviting area to look out over the golf course.
