23 of D.C.'s top designers have been working since August 14 to renovate a $10.28 million mansion in Potomac for this year's DC Design House. Each designer will put their own touch on one room in the nine-bedroom/13-bath house, and the final product will be revealed to the public from September 30 through October 29. Since the DC Design House first launched 10 years ago, more than $1.78 million has been raised and donated to Children’s National.
The Potomac mansion serving as this year’s venue has 27,256-square-feet of living space on four floors with nine bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and four half bathrooms. Also included are a ballroom, multiple kitchens, a library with his and hers offices, a pool and pool house with an apartment, a cinema and an elevator. The two-acre property was built in 2009 and is listed by Fouad Talout and Pascale Karam of Long & Foster Real Estate.
The DC Design House is open to the public from Saturday, Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 29 and tickets are $35. Visitors can tour the home from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. The A Decade of Design celebration will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, and tickets are $125.
