The Junior League of Detroit (JLD) has selected The Distinctive House on the Hill, located at 205 Lake Shore Road in Grosse Pointe Farms, as the location for its 24th Designers’ Show House.
Every other year the JLD selects a prominent local estate and curates a team of local and national interior designers to transform the home into a Designers’ Show House.
League members Shelia Minetola of Grosse Pointe Park, Gabriela Boddy of Grosse Pointe, and Dianne Bostic Robinson of Detroit are general co-chairs of the 2022 Designers’ Show House.
“We are very proud and honored to carry on this longstanding JLD tradition as our main fundraiser,” says Kimberly Burke, president of JLD. “The Designers’ Show House will allow us to continue our league’s philanthropic work, which supports community impact initiatives that help meet the needs of Detroit children, young women, and families. It also allows us to provide community-based grants and scholarships.”
The Distinctive House on the Hill is a 5,985-square-foot manor perched on half an acre overlooking Lake St. Clair. Featuring five oversized bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and well-portioned living spaces throughout for relaxation and entertaining, the home will be “a wonderful showcase” for some of the area’s top design talent.
“The Junior League of Detroit is returning to the Grosse Pointes for this 2022 event after showcasing two very beautiful Detroit homes for our Designers’ Show House in 2018 and 2020,” Robinson says. “It is always an honor to showcase an amazing home in what has become a highly anticipated community event. This year’s beautiful home also will give designers an opportunity to showcase the versatility and beauty of a truly magnificent setting.”
Built in 1988, this manor-style home is set within Grosse Pointe Farms on the highest elevated parcel of land, affording privacy and views of Lake St. Clair.
Area design enthusiasts will have the opportunity to glimpse the Distinctive House on the Hill in its pre-renovated state during the JLD’s Sneak-A-Peek weekend event in July (date to be announced) before the home’s redesigned reveal in Fall 2022.
