This year’s Showhouse is a newly built, 8,800-square-foot Buckhead estate sited on a private, 2-acre lot. Evoking a stately English country home thanks to its private lot carved out of wooded N. Atlanta hills, the 5-bedroom Showhouse features custom-made brick and locally sourced and aged granite for the exterior and integrates structured, classical design with more modern, casual living space.

The estate was designed by Atlanta architecture firm Harrison Design and built by Sheehan Built Homes. More than 20 of the city’s top interior design talents have decorated the nearly 10,000-square-foot-house from top to bottom and inside and out.



Be among the first to preview this year’s Home for the Holidays at the opening-night party, Moonlight & Mistletoe! The Showhouse will be outfitted in full holiday decor, giving guests the only opportunity to enjoy the home’s holiday lights at night. Kick off the holiday season in style with light bites, a tour of the house, and the opportunity to meet the designers! Cocktail attire. Valet parking.


Join ADAC and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles for a day of holiday cheer and design inspiration at the Home for the Holidays Showhouse! All ADAC Day of Design presentations are held at the showhouse, and are free with the purchase of a showhouse tour ticket.
