The House on Village Drive

VillageDrive090216TV003Formed in 1963, the Bellarmine University Women’s Council has a rich history of providing leadership to the Bellarmine academic community. From the beautification of campus to providing resources to the university library, their contributions have a lasting impact on the campus culture. In fact, The Bellarmine University Women’s Council Endowed Scholarship provided scholarships to 20 Bellarmine students in the 2015-16 academic year. Perhaps their most anticipated annual fundraiser, now in its 42nd year, is the Designers’ Show House, an effort that mobilizes the Louisville design community to add elegant finishing touches to each room of a home that is currently on the market.

This year’s show house, located at 2320 Village Drive, is a beautiful 1925 Stratton Hammon home situated on 1.5 acres that backs up to Cherokee Park. Completely renovated, the home is currently listed for $1.5 million and provides a unique opportunity to own a piece of history. The official Bellarmine Show House tours, featuring 25 designers, will take place September 10-25, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $15 at the door or at any advanced sale vendor locations: Commonwealth Bank & Trust Co., (Anchorage, Blankenbaker, Highlands, Holiday Manor, Humana, Norton Commons) Burdorf Interiors, Colonial Designs, LL&A Interior Design, Renaissance Inc., Tassels or Details.
