About the Design Home 2012

We invite you to join us for the 11th Annual Philadelphia magazine's Design Home. In partnership with Bentley Homes, the Main Line's renowned luxury homebuilder helmed by industry leader and design innovator, Tom Bentley, this project will showcase a "right-sized" home. The cleverly designed 6,000 square foot estate home will marry classic elegance and highly functional living spaces. Tom Bentley's vision-made-reality dream home for today's homebuyer is located in the Bentley Homes coveted Worthing community, nestled into a 32-acre rolling wooded cul-de-sac in the heart of the Main Line, bordering the stately Willows Park.

Philadelphia magazine's Design Home 2012 will be open for public tours from September 14th through October 14th, 2012. 100% of ticket proceeds benefit The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.
