is the 17th Annual
Cashiers Designer Showhouse
Close to the center of Cashiers, through the gates and down a beautifully wooded and winding trail stands an utterly charming, low-country home, on 29 breath-taking acres set deep in the shadows of Whiteside Mountain.
As relevant today, as when completed in 1993, Hilliard House boasts extraordinary and encompassing views, soaring ceilings and a gracious and open floor plan for large scale entertaining. Bedrooms and baths are intimate and private with each perfectly positioned for a picture framed view of Whiteside Mountain. A sweeping veranda – stretching the entire width of the home – welcomes you inside while porches and decks off the back beckon a lazy summer day spent with a glass of lemonade and a great book.
From August 23 through August 31, Interior Designers representing the Southeastern region will not only bring trending design to Cashiers but will again create the magic that is The Cashiers Designer Showhouse. Leading area landscapers are involved in redefining the areas surrounding the home and in turn creating serene and evocative late summer mountain gardens for Showhouse strolling.
Laura Jane Stanton, Showhouse Event Manager enthuses, “Once again CHS has chosen a stunning property for the 2014 designer show house. Sitting in the middle of 29 acres is a lovely, light, and airy southern style home. This home offers spectacular views from almost every room of woods and Whiteside Mountain. As one approaches the back of this property, you will “blown away” by the view of the Chattooga valley & the mighty Whiteside. Combined with the talented designers, the exciting shopping experience and the tantalizing lunch, we promise you will have a wonderfully memorable day in the mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina!”
Showhouse Boutique Manager, Cherie Tibbetts serves as liaison with 25 separate boutique/shop owners in structuring two unique shopping experiences at Showhouse – the Annex Boutique and the Cafe Level Shops. Antiques, jewelry, area crafts, foods, clothing and accessories and garden plants with that Cashiers style can be found again this year, along with surprise pop-up shops and books from various designers throughout the world.
Lunch will be served daily at the Showhouse Cafe from 11:30 to 2:30.
The Cashiers Designer Showhouse is the primary fundraiser of the Cashiers Historical Society, whose work in educating and advocating to preserve the cultural heritage of our Valley is so essential. Daily Admission: $35 Available at the Transportation Area.
