The annual Patrons' Party that precedes and benefits the Georgetown House Tour amped up the "wow" factor at the house of Under Armour founder, CEO and chairman Kevin Plank and his wife D.J. (Desiree Jacqueline) Wednesday, April 26. The renovated historic property at 34th and O Streets — named Sagamore South by Plank — has most famously been home to Ambassador David Bruce and his wife Evangeline, a legendary Georgetown hostess.

Debbie Winsor sold the c. 1815 Federal house to the Planks in 2013 for just under $8 million. The Patrons' Party for the 2010 house tour was held at the same location when the Winsors owned it.

The more than 400 guests enjoyed food and drinks in the garden, patio and house. The rooms — from the man cave with TVs and pool table in the basement to the themed bedrooms — were knockouts. The Planks were not at home.

The Georgetown House Tour will feature eight houses, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Saturday, April 29. Tickets with booklets can be purchased at St. John's Church at 3240 O St. NW or online at georgetownhousetour.com. Tea will be served at the church from 2 to 5 p.m.
