There are eight homes on the Grand Bend and Area Horticultural Society Home and Garden Tour, which takes place July 5. Among them is the Spanish inspired home of Frank and Nancy Moore, who owned a home in Costa Rica and wanted to bring some of the same feel to a plot of land north of Grand Bend. Frank has traveled extensively through South America for a book he’s writing on a famed British botanist; Nancy is a yoga instructor and master gardener. Bob McIntosh and Kate McKenzie’s home in St. Joseph Shores is one of two in the area on the tour. It’s also for sale at $1,800,000. Among its amenities is a kitchen designed by the same man who designed the kitchen for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones Bermuda home. Tickets for the tour ($15 advance, $20 on the day) are available at Sobey’s or the Tender Spot, and include lunch. For more info, call Bob Putherbough 519-236-7884.
