Formerly an English manor house, Virginia House was relocated to Richmond in 1925 and is now one of several spaces the Virginia Museum of History & Culture makes available for private rental.
Designed by Alexander and Virginia Weddell and completed in 1929, the home is situated on a hillside overlooking the historic James River and was constructed from the materials of a sixteenth century English manor house. Although Virginia House was a blend of three romantic English Tudor designs, it was, for its time, a thoroughly modern home complete with seven full baths, central heat, a modern kitchen, and commodious closets.
Mrs. Weddell’s appreciation of style is evident as the visitor moves through rooms decorated with English and Spanish antiques, silk draperies, Oriental carpets, and fine silver and china. The nearly eight acres of gardens and grounds that Virginia House rests on were designed by Charles Gillette and provide a rich backdrop to the house throughout the year.
The outdoor space has undergone recent renovations that make it a wonderful venue for intimate gatherings and larger parties.
