In the west wing of The Manor, our Virginian ballroom and pre-function Greenery room provide a cohesive backdrop for hosting a refined and elegant reception for your celebration. The Virginian ballroom complements The Manor’s refined classical aesthetic with inviting cream tones and warm accents, including gold filament-embellished mirrored panels, ornate decorative appliqués and moldings, wall panels of fine fabric, and many other adornments reflective of quality old-world craftsmanship appropriate to our historic landmark mansion.
A hardwood running-bond dance floor with a classic wood inlay border, fine art period paintings, and built-in display cabinetry featuring collections of antique European porcelain and silver all give the room an added sense of sophistication. Without being gauche or overstated the Virginian ballroom feels thoroughly grounded in the traditions of quality and class, offering a true feeling of stateliness while imparting a unique sense of charm and authenticity.
Adjoining the Virginian Ballroom, the verdant “Greenery” offers an ideal location to host the cocktail hour of your celebration. Reminiscent of a stately English conservatory, the beautiful light-filled space extends parallel to the full length of the Virginian Room, connected by an extensive series of antique leaded glass French doors. Its traditional aged brick and finely-honed bluestone floor further evokes the European charm of this style of design.
The Greenery’s floor-to-ceiling solarium windows welcome in the sunlight and offer full view of The Manor’s manicured formal gardens and its lovely water feature ringed by mature rose hedges. An additional complement of French doors provided access to the outdoor patio and rear garden, extending the party into the open air, even allowing for an outdoor bar in prime-weather months.
This westward-facing room provides an excellent vantage point to experience the sunset behind our gardens, casting it in a warm glow as your guests enjoy the celebration, cocktails in hand. And when it’s time to gather for the bride and groom’s big entrance and sit down to dine, the convenient location makes for a seamless transition to the ballroom to carry the party into the night.
