The 2016 St. Jude Dream Home will include a signature designed suite from Michael Moloney. De Young Properties worked with Michael on the Emmy Award-winning television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, where they teamed up to build and design a home full of inspiration for a local hero.

Michael will donate his design talent and resources to one very special project, “Michael’s Mystery Suite”, which will remain off-limits during the construction and will be unveiled at an October event. “Michael’s Mystery Suite” will transform the expansive master living quarters, which includes a spacious bedroom, relaxing retreat, walk-in-closet and luxurious master bathroom, into an all-encompassing suite of colors, textures and the unexpected. De Young Properties and Michael Moloney are excited to collaborate on this special project which will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
