The third-annual Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens, produced by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and benefiting the Atlanta History Center, celebrates the South’s genteel hospitality and flourishing design industry, as well as the beauty the region offers throughout the spring season. Located at 2805 Normandy Drive NW, the showhouse is open for tours April 19–May 13.

THE HOUSE: A newly built residence designed by Harrison Design and built by Sheehan Built Homes, the 2018 showhouse measures nearly 9,804 square feet and is inspired by the English country homes of architect Sir Edwin Lutyens from the 1900s. The residence’s exterior features a brick-and-stone masonry with limestone, while its light-filled interiors showcase 11-foot ceilings; two master suites; two grand, matching stairwells and two laundry rooms. A full-daylight basement opens to a pool terrace and landscape. Nestled on the tree-lined streets of Buckhead’s Normandy Drive and, the 1.13-acre lot has been transformed by landscape architects Graham Pittman, Floralis Garden Design, Maxwell Gardens and Hamilton Land Services, and includes a front motor court, as well as a terraced lawn in the rear with a pool and surrounding lush gardens protected by a canopy of trees.


THE BENEFICIARY: Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is honored to welcome back the Atlanta History Center, one of the city’s most respected cultural institutions, the 2018 beneficiary. We couldn’t be more thrilled to work hand-in-hand with an organization dedicated to preserving and fostering appreciation for our multidimensional city.
