What is the Symphony Show House?
It is a fundraising project for the Oklahoma City Orchestra League where the use of a house is donated and redecorated and then open to the public for viewing. This year’s home is located at 4808 Rose Rock Drive in OKC.
The 44th annual Symphony Show House, presented by the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, is a 9,943-square-foot home in the Adventure District near the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Garden.
The home, built in 2007 and later expanded and remodeled, is on 2.15 wooded acres adjacent to a creek.
It has seven bedrooms, seven full baths, one half-bath, an indoor pool and cabana and two outdoor fire pits.
“Local designers will soon transform this blank canvas into a magical place to visit, which will inspire ideas for your own home,” organizers said of the annual fundraiser for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s music education programs. The home will be open for tours May 6-21.
“Opening the doors to architectural gems and prestigious addresses for 43 years, the Oklahoma City Orchestra League’s Symphony Show House is widely considered Oklahoma’s premier annual show house event. Whether starting with the blank canvas of a new home or the character of a historic manor, the region’s top designers transform homes into the unexpected. (http://newsok.com/article/5534634)
