Three Designer Showhouses!

The Interior Design Society of Charlotte (IDS Charlotte) is bringing not one but three Designer Showhouses to the area this spring, and we cannot wait to see them. The three showhouses are coming to Davidson in The Preserve at Narrow Passage this March, to showcase incredible workmanship and advanced technology, in addition to incredible interior design by 45 Charlotte-area designers.

Where Are the 2020 IDS Charlotte Showhouses?

IDS Charlotte has partnered with three award-winning custom builders:

The three firms are each building one of the designer show homes in The Preserve at Narrow Passage in Davidson. (The home by Southern Cottage is a Southern Living Showcase Home). Narrow Passage is a luxury home community, the first of its kind in the area, a conservation neighborhood, where 37 of The Preserve’s 59 acres are designated conservation spaces, with fields, streams, and pristine wetlands protected from development. You’ll find The Preserve at Narrow Passage off of Shearer Rd in Davidson.
