BALTIMORE (WJZ)— A once in a lifetime opportunity is coming soon. Perhaps the most exclusive home in Baltimore will be open for tours.
Mike Schuh takes us to the top.
WJZ was invited 23 floors up, to Silo Point’s penthouse.
“Welcome to the show house,” said Susan Taylor. “You’re going to see 20 different spaces that were designed by local designers.”
Taylor organized what you’re about to see.
“We’re in, perhaps, the most incredible high-rise home in Baltimore,” Taylor said. “All decked out, every room different, different designer, different artists. Every space amazing, but every space competing for your attention with this view.”
The view stretches 180 degrees halfway around the building.
“Everyone who comes in here immediately focuses out there and there’s always something going on in the harbor,” Taylor said.
Inside, there are two floors. And nearly everything from the art to the decorations and furniture are for sale.
Carol Grillo designed the study. On the walls are objects made from her father’s jewelry store.
“Well, I think the designers get to be creative,” Grillo said. “The symphony gets the people to come through and pay the money. It’s a fundraiser and the individuals who come through get to see a beautiful view and a beautifully designed space.”
So maybe you can’t afford a $4 million penthouse. For a few moments at least, you are being given the license to pretend.
The Decorators’ Show House at Silo Point is open for a total of 18 days beginning this Sunday. The cost is $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
The Decorators’ Show House is an annual fundraiser produced by the Baltimore Symphony Associates, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s (BSO) volunteer organization. Proceeds benefit the BSO’s education and community initiatives.
