GREENSBORO – After a massive renovation, Julian Price’s historic home is ready for his close-up.
The mansion at 301 Fisher Park Circle will open its doors for public tours as a designer showhouse for three weeks from today.
More than 25 designers from New York to Texas, Florida and the Carolinas have decorated its 31 rooms with fresh wall treatments, furniture, fabrics and accessories.
“I didn’t even know how beautiful the house can be,” said Michael Fuko-Rizzo, one of its owners, during a media preview on Friday.
Known as Hillside, this timber-framed brick mansion was built in 1929 for the President of Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Co.
For years its beauty was hidden under overgrown foliage and clutter accumulated by its former owner, Sandra Cowart.
As early as January 2017, it achieved national fame as the backdrop for an episode of the A&E reality series “Hoarders”.
Cowart lost property through foreclosure. Now it has undergone a major transformation under the new owners Michael and Eric Fuko-Rizzo.
The original pine floors in the kitchen and breakfast room have been sanded and refurbished.
Original hardware has been removed and restored. New wallpaper and paint cover the walls.
