The 2018 Symphony Designer Showhouse is a beautiful stucco circa 1870 home. It is located on historic Tradd Street, one of Charleston’s most coveted residential streets that stretches across the lower peninsula from the Ashley River to the Cooper River. Tradd Street was one of the original carriage ways laid out in the 1680 Grand Modell of Charles Town.

The gated entrance to the front garden sets the stage for 142 Tradd, a gracious three-story structure in the style of an English townhouse. On the ground floor, you will explore the treasurers of the Designer Showhouse Boutique. Be sure to notice the original hewn stone floors, exposed brick walls and fireplace.

The second floor main living area offers impeccable hardwood floors and glorious natural light, showcasing a formal living room and dining room. Fireplaces, pocket doors and ceiling medallions are original to the home. An elegant kitchen and eating area overlooking a large walled garden, along with a deck, perfect for entertaining, completes the level. The third floor includes a large master bedroom, second laundry area and luxurious master bath.

The home is the perfect platform for some of the Lowcountry’s most talented designers. Be sure to shop in our exclusive boutique, lunch in our Café or choose a treasure from our designers’ exquisitely decorated rooms. Now in its 41st year, the Symphony Designer Showhouse is a not-to-be-missed event!
