Designers' Showhouse

We are delighted to share that once again we have purchased a property to serve as our Showhouse that will be sold after renovations and tours. The home is located at 2855 SW Fairway Drive, near 29th and Topeka Blvd. The home is adjacent to the Topeka County Club golf course, so we are brainstorming ways we can connect our efforts on behalf of children and families with the passion so many have for the game of golf! This incredible house features great main-floor living space including the living room, kitchen, dining room, powder bath, master suite, two bedrooms with bath in between, and main floor laundry. Above the garage you find a complete “apartment” with bedroom, bath, living room and kitchenette – perfect for a college student, legislator, caregiver or for use as a mother-in-law’s suite. The lower level provides a huge family room, half bath and the potential of a fifth bedroom. 

The Designers’ Showhouse is a fundraiser benefiting children by supporting Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas’ mission. It is a creative partnership between the agency, designers and craftsmen that will transform the home that was purchased by the agency for public tours, activities and resale. 

Proceeds from this annual, grassroots fundraiser will assist with the Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas mission of supporting the development and early education of children by improving access to resources for families, including high-quality child care options.

Join us for the 2020 Designers' Showhouse Patron Party!
