Delaware Designer Showhouse & Gardens


Sep 22, 2016 to Oct 16, 2016
10:00 AM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


The Junior League of Wilmington is sponsoring an inspirational showhouse in Centreville, DE that will feature the creativity and talents of nearly 20 local interior designers and landscapers, with proceeds benefitting the Junior League, Delaware Nature Society, The Delaware Contemporary, Delaware Fund for Women, and the Oxford Arts Alliance. The showhouse will be open Thursdays through Saturdays from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Sundays 12:00pm to 5:00pm beginning September 22 and ending October 16.


The 4,400 square foot custom home was built in 1974 on 3.5 woodland acres with two flow-through ponds, and was designed with entertaining in mind.  When its current owners planned a facelift to prepare it for sale, a designer showhouse to benefit local organizations seemed like a natural fit. Renovations to the home include a welcoming courtyard entrance with a new pergola, a stunning new kitchen, and entertaining and dining spaces, all with an eye towards bringing the woodland setting indoors. Visitors will also find inspiration in two completely new, spa-style bathrooms as well as a budget-conscious upgraded bath that feels completely fresh. The homeowner’s unique contemporary art collection has served as a muse for designers throughout the home. Many local artists are featured, including works by Ed Loper, Vicki Vinton, Graham Dougherty, Ken Mabry, Jon Mort, and Caroline Chen.


Showhouse details and ticket information are available at or email or on  Parking will be available at a nearby parking lot close to the private location. The exact location is disclosed with the purchase of tickets.
