Our 49th Showhouse is a colonial beauty which sits near the site of the 1864 Civil War Battle of Westport. The home was built in 1915 with extensive remodeling in the 1930s.
The 5034-square foot home is currently owned by Tim and Heather Pluard and their 3 children. Visitors will first enter a cozy library with a fireplace and then move toward the formal dining room overlooking the reflection garden and fountain. Exquisite plaster molding frames the elegant living room beyond which you will see the completely remodeled kitchen and hearth room.
Upstairs on the second floor are 4 bedrooms, each with its own bath, one of which is another completely remodeled gem. Two more bedroom suites on the third floor flank a spacious common gathering area.
We are thrilled with the response from designers, who are eager to work their magic in this home. We expect to have over 30 design spaces in the home and grounds which will be transformed by the creative ingenuity of these artists.
We welcome the return of our Café, for your lunching pleasure before or after your tour of the home. And you won’t want to miss a shopping spree in our Symphony Designers’ Showhouse Boutique, always your source for unique, locally crafted items.
Come visit us April 21 through May 13, 2018, between 10am and 5pm Tuesdays through Sunday, with extended hours Thursday evenings.
We are excited to present to you this latest, most beautiful chapter in a long Kansas City tradition, the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. We have had a wonderful time putting this project together! We are grateful for your support of the Showhouse and of the Kansas City Symphony.
