The Turtle Creek Tour of Homes, now in its 19th year, will feature three sky-high residences and one single family home that give people a rare look at life above the creek. The tour, taking place from 1 to 5 pm on April 26, concludes with a party beginning at 6:30 pm. Tickets to just the tour start at $60, and sales benefit The Turtle Creek Association, the 35-year-old organization dedicated to preserving 87 acres of greenways and parkland along Turtle Creek. Tour these luxurious homes in any order you choose.

Here's a closer look at the homes on this year's Turtle Creek Tour of Homes, with descriptions provided by tour organizers.
