Formal Dining Room
Dine like royalty in this beautifully appointed room containing original furnishings. This formal
dining space is perfect for family dinners, holiday meals, bridal showers, engagement
celebrations, corporate dinners, or any time you’d like to “break bread” together! This space
can seat 10 with the carved wood dining chairs or 16 with our gold chivari chairs.
The perfect year-round indoor location to host your celebrations is the White Ballroom. This two-story ballroom has a grandeur like no other. The ornate plaster ceiling is offset by the palate of “river” blues and contrasting white accents. The second story gallery overlook is the perfect space from which your musicians can play, and photographers can capture your special moments! The ballroom boasts a fireplace with marble surround, beautiful hardwood floors edged with black marble, and a custom-designed larger than life crystal chandelier that invites you to share precious moments with your family and friends.
Intricately inlaid plaster ceiling and sophisticated stacked moldings on the fireplace wall are two
architectural features of this stunning room. The original silk wallpaper is perfect for capturing
sound and is luxurious in this stately space. The neutral palette in this room is an ideal backdrop
for your event color scheme.
Brick walls and stone fireplaces encompass this warm and comfortable space. It is the perfect
location for a very large dinner [seats up to 270] for your celebration or corporate event. A
large, built-in wooden bar is perfect for service from multiple sides. On a chilly winter day, a
crackling fire will create an ambiance for your guests. The architectural beams overhead helps this
room feel like Tuscany. An arched doorway, heavy metal chandeliers, and a wine cellar make
this an incredible space for dining with your guests!
One of Mr. Massey’s favorite spots in the house – Fox Haven is ideal for private functions being
versatile and idyllic. This space can host 16 for a sit-down event. It can be an indoor lounge
space for outdoor entertaining on the terrace or can house the bar or appetizers for your
outdoor celebration on the colonnade.
This domed roof structure beside the pool at River Run is architecturally incredible. The
The Jeffersonian design makes this space “quintessential Old Virginia”! Marble floors, an elaborate
restroom, beautifully rich wood on the built-in bar, and an incredible pickled wall of cabinets
and custom woodwork makes this the perfect location for bar service for your poolside guests!
"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."
