House Search



The search for a location for the 44th Bucks County Designer House & Gardens is underway! If you own – or know of – a location to host this remarkable event, we invite you to contact Dr. Sandy M. Homel, Chair of the 2019 Designer House committee.


For 43 years the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) has held its largest fundraiser, the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens, to support Doylestown Hospital and to fulfill its mission to enhance the health and welfare of Central Bucks County and surrounding communities.


Designer House visitors greatly enjoy a quintessential Bucks County experience, one that evokes our area’s rich history, architectural beauty, and bucolic landscape.  We are seeking a site within a 20-minute range of Doylestown Hospital with a large older home, outbuildings such as cottages, sheds, or barns, and an abundance of flat, open grounds.


Starting in early February, the VIA will team with top area designers and landscapers to “refresh” the interior and gardens. Two events, the Empty House Party in February and the Preview Gala in April, will showcase the amazing transformation of the home and property.  In late April, the property will open for 29 days of tours.  Visitors will enjoy beautiful interior designs and stunning gardens, as well as light refreshments in an onsite café, and an opportunity to bring home new treasures from the boutiques.


We also welcome interior design companies, landscape designers as well as artists and boutiques to learn about joining our team. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available.


Your support is greatly appreciated and will help to make a difference in our community. Moreover, your home will be beautifully displayed and you will be our guest at all the events and tours.
