WE CREATE, YOU CELEBRATE. SERVING CHARLOTTESVILLE, D.C. AND BEYOND.
Evelyn Keyes Events has partnered with the historic Glenmore Manor to offer services to her clients and whoever might be interested in using the home for their private event!
This historic home was built in 1724 and is the original manor home to Glenmore in Keswick, Virginia. Since then, this home has had elegant additions and some of them even made from timbers milled from the property. The slate roof is also likely to have nails from Thomas Jefferson’s nail factory at Monticello.
As you drive up the long driveway lined with beautiful boxwoods you can already appreciate the history this property has to offer. Set up on a private setting on a high ridge, the grounds enjoy massive oaks, magnolias and is surrounded by yard and open pastures. Separated by 3-board fencing Glenmore was once a renowned breeding farm for draft horses. You can still find many horses grazing the fields and riding rings around the property. A riding lesson can even be pre-arranged to fill an afternoon. We also offer group wine tastings/outings and can set up transportation for you!
As you enter the foyer, the formal living room is on the right, the kitchen is straight ahead and the formal dining room is on the left. Hardwood floors and the tall ceilings are throughout this main level. There are two bedrooms on the first level; the master with a California king and a queen bedroom. Take the sweeping staircase to the second level and you will find the three other bedrooms.
Off the kitchen is a deck w outdoor seating and a charcoal grill and below is a large soapstone patio perfect for entertaining. If you feel like taking a stroll, beautiful gardens fill the grounds! Truly magnificent!
Feel like lounging pool side? The in-ground swimming pool is surrounded by a wide stone patio, and on a clear day, Thomas Jefferson’s beloved Monticello can be seen in the distance.
