Villa de Luxe
Preservation Houston is proud to announce a very special February event.
Villa de Luxe, a historic Houston estate, will be transformed into a stunning design showhouse from February 1 until February 17, 2013. The house, designed by William Ward Watkin, was built for hardware magnate F.A. Heitmann in 1924. The house stands on two acres in historic Shadyside, a private place neighborhood adjacent to Rice University.
Luxe Interiors + Design is the premier media sponsor of this event, which will benefit Preservation Houston.
Event chairs are Jane-Page Crump and Bill Stubbs, ASID designers.
