The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, Inc. (CSOL) announces its first ever Tour of Homes in downtown historic Charleston. For 44 years, the CSOL has hosted a month-long Designer Showhouse, a home transformed by area designers. Due to the pandemic, changes to the timing and format were made this year. The CSOL is holding a shorter event, still showcasing beautiful design and historic architecture.
The homes and gardens can be visited on self-guided tours either on Saturday, May 22, or Sunday, May 23, from 10 am to 6 pm. The homes and gardens will be in various sections of town to offer a taste of Charleston's unique neighborhoods.
Among the homes are:
-- Two homes owned by interior designers and their families, allowing for unfettered creativity
-- A petite cottage, transformed with a mix of antiques and contemporary pieces into a chic second home
-- A grand home and former Designer Showhouse with expansive views of the Ashley River, with a hidden pool and garden
-- A tucked-away carriage house blending historic touches with modern livability, with a garden renewed by an in-demand landscape architect
-- A lovely home that evolved from a past Designer Showhouse to an elegant family retreat
Proceeds from the tour will support the Charleston Symphony and provide scholarships for music students in the tri-county area.
The homes and gardens will be in various sections of town to offer a taste of Charleston's unique neighborhoods. Your day will begin at the designated tour headquarters where you will pick up a wristband and tour booklet. Be sure to save time to shop at CSOL's chic pop-up shop SCORE and enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the many downtown restaurants!
