This will be the Junior League of Detroit’s 23rd Designers’ Show House. This biennial event is our largest fundraiser and an extremely popular public event. Funds raised support the JLD’s many community programs, including grants, college scholarships, and our key community impact initiative – Project EAT. ‘Project EAT’ creates a more food secure community by providing Education, Access, and Tools to those in need.
The Bingley Fales House, recognized in The American Institute of Architects Guide to Detroit Architecture, was designed and built in 1907 by Chittenden & Kotting for Bingley Fales, a lawyer and assistant general manager of the Edison Illuminating Company. At 15,000 square feet, the home is the largest residence in the Indian Village neighborhood, boasting 10 bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half baths. The home is set on two acres of land, which include formal gardens and a Pewabic Tile reflecting pool.
Nationally recognized and local interior designers will bring this magnificent home into the twenty-first century, while talented landscapers will transform the gardens.
Local design enthusiasts will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Bingley Fales House in its pre-renovated state during the JLD’s “Sneak-A-Peek” event in October (date to be announced) before the grand unveiling of the redesigned home in spring 2020.
