CSOL Designer Showhouse features villa in the Persian style
The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s 37th Annual Designer Showhouse at 67 Rutledge Avenue is an antebellum treasure located in Harleston Village. Built in 1852, this elegant home is known for its broad porch with a gray and white marble floor and Moorish arches framed in latticework.
The house features heart pine floors, etched glass windows, 10 fireplaces, a copper bathtub, and some of the first indoor plumbing in Charleston. It includes a dependency that once housed a stable and carriage house, wash house, school room and kitchen. Now, this property has been transformed into a showcase by some of the Lowcountry’s most talented interior designers.
From March 20 through April 19, the public will be invited to view their work from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and from 1-4 p.m. on Sundays. Along with an exclusive boutique, and sales from designers’ rooms, guests can enjoy alfresco dining in the “Secret Garden” from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Now in its 37th year, the League’s Designer Showhouse has been a major fundraising event for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and for student scholarships that total more than $30,000 annually.

DAZZLING PREVIEW PARTY
The CSO Brass set the tone and Mayor Joseph P. Riley was there to cut the ribbon, officially opening our 37th Annual Designer Showhouse. Guests wined and dined and oohed and aahed over the amazing transformation of 67 Rutledge Avenue, which was an “encore performance” because it was our showhouse back in 1995. Now, the house is in full swing and open through April 19.
