52nd Kansas City Symphony Designers’ Showhouse
The Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA) has selected a stately, Normandy farmhouse-style home for its 52nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse fundraiser.
The house is located at 1025 W. 53rd Terrace in the Sunset Hill subdivision of Kansas City, Missouri, west of Loose Park. The house is 5,565 sq. ft., and features a glass conservatory, 4 fireplaces, a pool, slate roof and 4-car garage. The style elements include hand hewn oak beams, 18th and 19th century carved wood moldings and fireplace surrounds, French iron chandeliers, stained glass, and antique brick flooring. The home’s spectacular garden has been showcased in many charitable garden tours and includes walkways, fountains and a variety of lush plantings and foliage.
The residence was finished in 1932 and designed by Edward Tanner, the renowned architect responsible for designing the Country Club Plaza, Danforth Chapel at the University of Kansas, Linda Hall Library, and many prominent homes in the Country Club District and Johnson County. The house will provide multiple spaces for area designers to transform into works of art applying the latest design trends.
