About the house
This year’s showhouse is a new estate designed by architecture firm Logan Design Group and built by Southern Gentry Homes. This showhouse will be a transitional style design with an array of materials such as painted brick, natural stone, slate, iron, natural wood, and other natural metals. Lots of light, huge roof overhangs, and a spectacular main level master suite give this house a unique personality.
There is huge play with interior and exterior space along with a pool that directs views out to a historic and natural pond that once was considered the “Buckhead Pool” by many. Prior to the 2019 Showhouse, the private 14-acre pondside lot served as hunting grounds and weekend retreat for the Joseph Madison High family (High Museum of Art, Atlanta). A stone wellhouse, picnic table, benches and a barbecue grill dating from the 1920s suggest carefree weekend gatherings where the family came to fish, shoot and share a meal, and these relics remain on the property today.
The showhouse features the work of top Southeastern designers and the grounds will be designed by Joe A. Gayle & Associates, leaders in the landscaping industry for more than 50 years.
