The Kansas City Symphony Alliance is pleased to announce the selection of the home to be featured as the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse for 2015. The home is located at 96 Janssen Place in Kansas City, Missouri, and will be open from Saturday, May 9 through Sunday, June 7. This house is the same home which was featured as the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse in 2000, fifteen years ago. It is owned by the same owner, who remembers fondly the outstanding experience of having this home featured as the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse back then, and is willing to allow KCSA to feature it once again.
The spacious three-story home features nine bedrooms and four baths, and has many desirable design areas for the pleasure of our outstanding interior designers.
