The Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA) has selected a stunning historic all-brick 1922 Georgian home for its 50th Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. This Kansas City tradition opens to the public April 20 and runs through May 12, 2019 and benefits the Kansas City Symphony.
The gorgeous Georgian-style home is located at 606 West 52nd Street in Kansas City, MO and sits just north of Loose Park. Interestingly, this year’s 50th home is next door to the 25th Symphony Designers’ Showhouse and is for sale should someone fall in love with the house. The home is over 6,000 sq. ft. with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half-baths and features a fireplace, vaulted ceiling, 14 rooms and is three-stories. The residence was finished in 1922 and will provide multiple spaces for area designers to transform into works of art utilizing the latest design trends.
“We are thrilled to present one of Kansas City’s historic homes as our 50th Symphony Designers’ Showhouse,” said Kate Hodel, Symphony Designers’ Showhouse co-chair. “We knew from the moment we saw this house that it was perfect for this year’s milestone Showhouse,” added Patti Lindstrom, Symphony Designers’ Showhouse co-chair.
The first Symphony Designers’ Showhouse was presented in 1970 and has run consequently for 49 years with one-year debuting two Showhouses. The project has enabled KCSA to contribute more than $5 million to the Kansas City Symphony and its programs and has been recognized nationally as an exemplary fundraising project.
