Introducing the 2024 Cashiers Designer Showhouse


Join Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles as we present the 27th-annual Cashiers Designer Showhouse from August 23–31. This year, a charming home located in the center of town will showcase the talents of 15 designers.

Nestled on 7 acres, this 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath quintessential mountain home showcases what you desire in year-round living or a summer haven: privacy, ample space for entertaining, a partially screened wrap-around porch, a private guest suite above the garage, and a separate recreation retreat featuring a full bar and covered deck. The 2024 Showhouse illustrates the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern convenience, making it a true sanctuary in the mountains.
