Hillside Estate, A Designer Showhouse
April 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - May 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
We are excited to introduce you to Hillside, the historic Julian Price home presented as a Designer Showhouse benefitting Preservation Greensboro Incorporated.
This event is being held to raise awareness of historic preservation by celebrating a landmark of statewide significance here in Greensboro, and to raise funds to help Preservation Greensboro meet its mission to build thriving communities by protecting and renewing our historic and architectural treasures.
Hillside is an historic mansion located amidst the well-preserved, tree-lined Fisher Park neighborhood and is just blocks from downtown Greensboro. The house was designed by noted architect Charles C. Hartmann and was built in 1928 for the Insurance executive Julian Price. The four-story, 31-room residence of Tudor Revival architecture spans 7,266 square-feet on its wooded lot. It features a three-story polygonal stair tower, red-brown rough fired brick, and half-timbering with stucco.
