A tudor revival mansion in Greensboro, North Carolina, provided the setting for Southern Home’s first showhouse. Designers from all over the south employed their talents to transform the neglected relic into a dazzling home for a modern family.
Built by Julian Price in 1929, the notable structure, with paneled walls, hand-forged metalwork, and steel-framed windows, was rescued by Preservation Greensboro when the previous owner’s financial misfortunes put the house in peril of being torn down for new development.
The home had even been featured on an episode of the TV show Hoarders. Stepping in to avert tragedy, Eric and Michael Fuko-Rizzo bought the house with the intent of saving it and turning it into their own home after first sharing it with the community as a designer showhouse. Hillside now proudly represents the architectural history of Greensboro and enjoys a new life as a modern family home for the Fuko-Rizzos and their twin 4-year-old daughters, Victoria and Elizabeth.
