‘ASPIRE HOUSE: McLean’ Starts Custom Home Tour This Weekend

The ASPIRE HOUSE McLean Designer Show House opens this weekend, giving people an inside look at a 9,600-square-foot custom home decorated by dozens of designers.

The house (952 Mackall Farms Lane) features 30 rooms created and decorated by more than two dozen designers and architects, according to the event description.

Originally supposed to open in May, the event got pushed to June and then to late September. Now, the show house is set to open this Saturday (Aug. 22) to the general public through Sunday, Sept. 13. The show house will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday.

People can take house tours with up to 12 people every 15 minutes, with admission for the last tour starting at 4 p.m., and tour the rooms online.

Safety protocols for the in-person tours due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic include hand sanitizing stations around the show house, face masks required for entry and advising people to stay 6 feet away from each other.

Tickets cost $50 for adults and $45 for military and seniors. The proceeds will go toward a scholarship fund that will support aspiring design talent from underrepresented communities.
