Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse, and in advance of this golden milestone, the Kansas City Symphony Alliance is hosting a not-to-be-missed ReVisit Tour!
The ReVisit Tour, scheduled for Saturday, October 13, offers a limited, unique opportunity to revisit the first floors of four magnificent Showhouses that have been featured in years past. Proceeds from the sale of the tickets benefit the Kansas City Symphony and its youth programs.
“We’ve had the pleasure of being the landscape designer on three of the four featured homes on the upcoming ReVisit Tour and this is, without a doubt, a very special opportunity to see how all the homes have been transformed since originally opened to the public,” said Patrick Vogt, Chief Ambassador of Outdoor Living at By The Blade.
“A great example is the 2012 Showhouse located at 47 West 53rd Street,” said Vogt. “We’ve been working to transform the exterior of this home for the better part of this year. What was once a historic home with a yard, with all its upgrades, would now be considered a historic estate home. With nearly 30 decorative pots, terraced stone walls, reflection areas, and over 2,000 plantings, the outdoor living space has been completely transformed into a mini-botanical garden.”
In the last six years, this same home’s interior has also been completely renovated. “The owners have dedicated countless hours to beautify this home both inside and out,” said Vogt. “The opportunity to see the extreme makeover on the first floor of this incredible home, alone, is well worth taking the tour.”
