Calling all voyeurs.

May kicks off house tour season, when you can get a peek inside your neighbors’ home and their elaborate dining rooms, rare art pieces and innovative renovations.

First up are 10 homes in Clinton Hill, as well as properties in Wallabout, that includes gardens, a mansion, an artist’s studio, and a French revival Gothic church.

Then, on May 7, you can explore Brooklyn Heights and its historic townhouses. Highlights include a nearly 170-year-old Greek Revival brick townhouse owned by an artist; a Federal-style house renovated by famed New York architect William Tubby; and the oldest house on the tour, built in 1826, which features Parisian chandeliers, a dining room table where Winston Churchill once ate, and a garden with a cherry tree.

Both tours are self-guided, so you can take your time. Just please, no photos.

Clinton Hill house tour starts at the Queens of All Saints Church [300 Vanderbilt Ave. between Dekalb and Lafayette avenues in Clinton Hill, (718) 638-7625], May 1, noon-5 pm. Tickets $25. For info, visit sctyclintonhill.tumblr.com; Brooklyn Heights house tour starts at St. Ann’s School [129 Pierrepont St. between Clinton and Henry Streets in Brooklyn Heights, 718-858-9193], May 7, 1-5 pm. Tickets $40. Reservations recommended. For info, visit www.thebha.org.
