Each year the Knoxville Symphony League hosts a spring fund-raiser to benefit the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra by unveiling a richly and expertly decorated show house for participants to tour. The 2008 Show House will be in Blount County this year in Lashbrooke Subdivision off Topside Road.
The house opened on Thursday, April 10, with an invitation-only preview party that started at the Lashbrooke pool and clubhouse and proceeded to the home for patrons, Symphony League members and designers to see the house. Since April 11, the house has been open to the public. Final day will be Sunday, April 27.
The elegant house on Lot 62, Waterside Way, was built by Rob Stooksbury, RTS Inc., with Jonathan Miller as architect. The house, which features the collaborative design work of the area’s top designers, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $15 at the door.
Special events at the house include catered luncheons by Rex Bradford Jones at the Lakeside Café from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. A gift shop is also available on site, and special lunches for groups can be reserved.
