2014 Designer Show House


Community Arts Center’s 2014 Designer Show House, Harvard House, is situated in the bucolic town of Swarthmore and  embodies well over a century of history.  Built circa 1905, this stately home incorporates elements of country French and Queen Anne style architecture, displaying ornate original features and accents.  A formal foyer leads to spacious living areas on three floors, including additions that have been designed to retain the original architectural integrity. The home’s expansive front lawn and Victorian covered porch welcomes visitors to this lovely property.  A select group of the area’s top interior designers, decorators and landscape designers re-imagined and renovated the space, transforming the historical property into a modern show-stopper.

The show house, located at 718 Harvard Avenue, Swarthmore, will be open for the public to tour from May 3rd through June 1st.  We regret that the Show House property is not suitable as a handicap accessible or child safe venue.
