The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, Inc. presents the Designer Showhouse
Near the union of Hasell and Anson streets stands the St. Johannes Lutheran Church parsonage, a blush-colored dwelling that’s finding new life as an overnight wedding venue. Since its construction in 1842, this Italianate-influenced residence has withstood good times and bad, surviving natural disasters, war, and neglect. Forty-five years ago, the newly restored building at 50 Hasell Street debuted on Historic Charleston Foundation’s Ansonborough tour. And this spring, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, Inc. (CSOL®) unveiled its 38th Charleston Symphony Designer Showhouse during a month of tours to benefit the symphony orchestra as well as CSOL® education and scholarship programs. In a stunning transformation, 15 designers married the house’s 19th-century charm with 21st-century design in 13 rooms, plus the courtyard. Take a peek!
