The official location for the 2011 DC Design House is 3134 Ellicott St. NW, Washington, DC, a 1925 English Country Tudor home owned most recently by the late philanthropist Janice Goldsten, wife of the late Robert Goldsten, who hosted many high profile events at the Forest Hills home with guests including actors such as, Kirk Douglas.
In partnership with Children’s National Medical Center, designers will be able to submit proposals for the one acre property which is currently on the market, priced at $4.9 million, for the many opportunities in interior, kitchen and landscape areas. Walk-throughs of the property completed this week where designers could get a first hand look at which areas interested them most, will lead to final designer selections for January 2011.
The official unveiling of the remodel will open in April 2011 and “Bare Bones” tours for the public to see the home pre-transformation will be hosted on February 26, 2011.
Last year, the 2010 DC Design House raised $200,000 for Children’s National Medical Center which is sponsored by Home & Design magazine.
