On a recent visit to my folks’ house, they tuned into the A&ETN “Hoarders” episode with the Julian Price House (purchased as a foreclosure for $415k), and the beauty of that mansion caught my attention so I watched this series for the first time.

The 1929 Historical Home in Greensboro is Famous!

Obviously, I’m not alone. The Julian Price House episode titled “Sandra” is THE most-watched episode ever of the “Hoarders” television show.

What you may have learned from “Hoarders.” 31 rooms in the Julian Price House were overflowing and piled high with furniture, collected stuff, and litter. It was one heck of a laborious undertaking for the crew at “Hoarders.”

    I’ve never watched that show but it sounds fascinating in a morbid kind of way. I guess I’ll have to tune in. That’s quite a transformation! On another note I wanted to let you know I was thinking of you today as a kindred spirit. It is likely that each of our sons are toiling away on the Bar exam in the very same room today. How unlikely is that? Two blogging friends from across the country with quite a lot in common. Anyway, sending good vibes and best wishes your way. I hope your son returns home this evening feeling good about today. XOX

      You’ll have to at least watch this particular episode since the former owner/hoarder was a successful interior designer! Thank you so much for those wishes, Celia. You’re a gem. I was thinking of your son as well, also wondering if those men might be breathing the same air. Luke felt very confident and is exhausted (and more interested in talking about the food consumed in Greektown than those questions on the exam about wills!). Hope your son rocked it! It’s over…yay!!!! πŸ™‚

    I’ve watched the “Sandra” episode twice. I felt so badly for her . As it began she looked like a version of Paula Deen — a beautiful , soft spoken Southern woman. But as it went on and the stress of what was happening hit her, it was hard to watch. Bless her heart. I was fascinated with the house and kept trying to see glimpses of it beyond the stuff! What they showed was not the typical hoarders stuff tho. I didn’t see piles of garbage or piles of clothes with animal feces on them. Doesn’t mean it wasn’t there. Could mean I missed those scenes. But I did see a beautiful house packed to bursting with stuff. Sandra was a designer herself so some stuff was pretty nice. Would love to see more before and after pictures of this home. Also would love to know how Sandra is doing.

      I sure hope she is doing well, Claire. You watched with a tender, compassionate heart, and I agree that her stress level must have been devastating. When I researched the episode online, I did find some info about the former owner, a reputable interior designer. However, without the info coming straight from her, I wouldn’t want to include it. I hope the good stuff I read is true: that she is grateful for 40 years of life there, preserving that home. Because you couldn’t walk around in the house with piles of stuff, the floors and other features remained in great condition. As I understand it, hoarding disorder is about the inability to stop acquiring and not necessarily about cleanliness or animal neglect. I actually know a few undiagnosed hoarders who have storage units, overflowing garages, and knowledge about using vertical space to stack their stuff. You can certainly be a high functioning hoarder and keep it a secret.

    Hi Michele,
    That’s an amazing kitchen. It looks timeless, like it’s been there a long time. The ceiling is beautiful and the vent hood has a nice patina. Then to keep it from being too serious, they popped in those fun window treatments. Have a great one!

    After reading this great post, I had to Google the Julian Price house hoping for more pictures. I was not disappointed! It is beautiful. It was the designer Showhouse in Greensboro in 2018. The designers, of course, did fantastic jobs but the renovation work the new owners did is absolutely amazing. The beauty of the house was visible, but barely, in Hoarders. It would have been a pleasure to see this beautiful home brought back to life.

      I saw that event and would love to spotlight it in a separate post. I won’t be surprised if we see this beautiful Hillside home pop up in another TV program or become a movie set! Thank goodness, the integrity of the home remains. πŸ™‚

    I watched that episode several months ago so I recognized the house. Would like to see what has been done to other rooms of the house. I wonder how they are separating sections to be rented out. Huge house for just the owners. I would think redoing the kitchen would take the most time and effort. Probably need a couple smaller kitchenettes as well in other parts of the house. Looks great now and I think the Price family would love it.

    It was hard to watch Sandra lose her marriage and be foreclosed as she did love the house so much.

      My heart goes out to her as well – what an excruciating chapter and so vulnerable to be in the public eye. Who could weather that sort of scrutiny? They used the home for a designer showhouse so there are lots of images floating around of that event, and I noticed there was a room decorated for the new owners’ twin daughters. I will try to get permissions to use photos and put together a follow up story. As far as I can tell, the owners still live in a different home in the area. They allow the home to be rented for weddings and gatherings since they aren’t yet living there. But they must get zoning permissions and the blessing of neighbors so I guess these things take time. Since the owners are serial flippers, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear it is for sale since all the press has made it famous and helped drive up the value!

    Such a beautiful transformation! One benefit, of all the stuff piled high, was the preservation of the floors and woodwork. I can not imagine the overwhelming feeling one would experience when considering buying, clearing out, and tackling a renovation of a house of such grandeur. I believe the house is thankful for the breathe of fresh air that now inhabits the home. I would like to see the property once the overgrown was tamed. If it is a desired location for weddings, the gardens must be stunning.

      I never thought of such preservation, Joanna! That’s right – it would be similar to closing the door of a home and not re-opening it for decades. I think you must either see the value post-cleanup or be absolutely in love with the location to take on a project of that magnitude. In my neck of the woods, folks won’t even overlook wallpapered walls when choosing a home! Oh yes, the gardens must be somethin’ else!

    It’s a lovely home but I’m wondering why the transition strip boards that transition floors from one room to another are raised. They are a tripping hazard.
