Oceanside CA— Long-time Oceanside residents and art collectors Darrell and Loren Dixon are opening up their unique home on Sunday, September 2nd for the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation, ‘Art and Garden Tour’ Fall Fest 2018 fundraiser.
The home is really more like a museum featuring several floors filled with art, a secret doorway, hidden stair case, a fairy cottage, tree house, an incredible master bedroom suite with spectacular views of Oceanside and surprises at every turn.
“You can walk into a room and each time you do, something new will catch your eye.” said Loren Dixon during a preview tour of her home. Beautiful sculptures, mosaics, paintings and more fill most every room in the home that was originally built in 1928. Due to the additions and remodels over the years, the home has a Winchester House quality to it “but all our stairways and doors lead to somewhere,” she said.
Before you even reach the front door of the home, you may stroll through a garden filled with art, a large restored stained glass window, a pride of lions, fountain and pond with beautiful mosaics created by family members.
Because of the overwhelming popularity of this event this year there are three tour times, 10a.m. to noon or 12:30 to 2:30 or 3:00 to 5:00p.m.
