FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Near & Far Aid is set to host the 2014 Designer House Tour in Fairfield, Southport and Westport. 

The destination event is "the pre-eminent destination for lovers of impressive architecture and the latest trends in decorating and unique design," said a press release. The 2014 Designer House Tour “Celebrating the Art of Living” will take place on Friday, May 2, and will feature five homes in the exclusive enclaves of Fairfield, Southport and Westport.

"Every house reflects the unique personality, creativity, taste and special interests of the owner whether it is a garden, a view or simply its ambiance, which elicits a particular sense of attraction to each visitor," the press release said. "The House Tour will allow patrons to meander the halls and ogle finely decorated homes from waterfront mansions to back country estates."

The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. The price of the house tour is $60 and fresh boxed lunches are $15. A pre-tour breakfast will take before the day’s event from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. at the Patterson Club in Fairfield.

“The Designer House Tour provides patrons a glimpse of fine living in Fairfield County, showcasing exquisite homes and décor while letting Near & Far Aid continue its important work of providing support programs helping families at risk, homelessness and adults in crisis and other causes,” said Near & Far Aid President Bitsy Higgins of Westport.

“We’re excited for this signature event as it always proves to be an inspiring and fun day and it’s another way the community underscores its spirit in helping others through this significant fundraiser."
