Dubbed “The Trio at the Abbey,” the league will present its 40th annual fundraiser through May 19 to benefit the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and numerous music education programs throughout the community.

Possibly even more inviting is the basement, transformed by Neely Design Associates into an in-home cinema. The downstairs living space is rounded out with an adjacent wine cellar and kitchen and a modern, eclectic guest bedroom from S.C. Designs.

Returning to the main floor, the master suite has been imagined by Meister Designs and Fabrics Unlimited, combining for a blend of contemporary and traditional that extends into the master bath and his and her walk-in closets, staged respectively by The Men's Warehouse and Kokopelli.

The Patio, accessed via both the master suite and the great room, is an outdoor living and entertaining space taken on by Amini's Galleria.

Both the “Traditional” and “Italian” houses offer similar gems waiting to be discovered.

Like happening upon a stone cottage in southern Europe, visitors to the Italian house, 15820 Chapel Ridge Lane, are first greeted by a shaded courtyard, then a gracious foyer that opens into a stunning yet cozy 2,646-square-foot, two-bedroom retreat with 17 different designs, from grand rooms to intimate spaces.

The “Traditional” house, across the lane at 1401 NW 158, is the middle of the three layouts at 4,208 square feet. Yet another stunning entry invites guests into a foyer doubling here as a gallery and commanded by the curving staircase that leads to the second floor.

Two bedrooms downstairs — one appointed here as a nursery, and the spacious master suite — are balanced with two more upstairs. A theater room completes the upstairs level.

Raby said that visitors traditionally “make a day of it” when attending the Symphony Show House.

The Abbey Cafe (located in the Contemporary house) will serve lunch daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday lunch from noon to 2:30 p.m. Lunch, including drink, will be available for $12.

The Boutique at The Abbey, located in the Traditional house, will offer jewelry, gifts, home decor and art for sale during show house hours.

Designer Sales, in the Italian house, will make items featured in the rooms and outdoor spaces of each house available for purchase to visitors.
