The Estate at River Run
The Estate at River Run offers a dream setting to host a variety of elegant affairs. High on a bluff towering over the James River, this exquisite Georgian Revival offers 16,000 square feet of opulence, built by Taylor and Parrish Construction from 1981-1987.
This stately Georgian features an upper brick promenade surrounded by a limestone balustrade and opens to a double curved staircase to the lower terrace. The mansion's interior boasts extravagant architectural embellishment. Marble floors, ornamental cornices, plaster friezes, 18-foot columns with gilded Corinthian capitals, and custom crystal chandeliers please the eye from the onset. A Jeffersonian pool house with a hexagonal raised dome presides over a circular pool with bluestone terraces and a limestone balustrade. Nearby, you will discover a tennis court complete with a covered viewing stand.
Lush green woods surround the grounds at the Estate on both sides. The mature oaks could likely tell stories from days past and provide the perfect canopy for photos, ceremonies, and cocktail hours. The river view, serene grounds, and the magical sunsets are yours to enjoy when you host your event at The Estate at River Run.

Our event was the first one this venue hosted and it went off without a hitch! The Estate is thoughtfully decorated and we enjoyed Kim taking us room by room and explaining the decor and history. This new venue is a gorgeous backdrop for any wedding or special event overlooking the James River. And the sunsets...you just have to see for yourself.
Above and Beyond Amazing!
