The Scene:

Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, Dover Hall stands as a refined, English Tudor-inspired estate. This extraordinary 38,000-square-foot castle emanates grandeur and tranquility on its sprawling 55-acre grounds, tucked away in the equestrian country of Goochland County.


 
Design:

Dover Hall has a rich history rooted in the dream of its original owners, Dennis and Cindy Pryor. Originally built as a lavish family home, meticulously planned and conceived for over four years, the estate was completed in the year 2000. The Pryors' attention to detail during the construction process ensured a seamless transformation into the exclusive luxury event venue that stands today. Infused with a unique blend of history and character, approximately 90% of the estate's original antiquities and art thoughtfully selected from Europe were preserved, adding an extra layer of charm and authenticity.
