Venue Features
The Scene:

Foxfire is a magical destination with sweeping views, sprawling grounds, enchanting ponds and a landmarked country estate. A renowned horse breeding and training farm, over the last century the residence has been a gathering place for society’s elite and offers true tranquility amidst the rolling countryside.

Your guests are treated to a breathtaking arrival, enveloped in maple trees as they pass the natural splendor of the grounds on their drive to the landmarked residence. Elegantly situated in the center of the property, the estate at Foxfire offers a crisp white exterior of the Manor House offers the perfect backdrop to endless design palettes, whether you wish to highlight the historic building, or focus your event concept on a different source of inspiration.

Next to the home a romantic, lawn and garden is an enchanting place to exchange vows. In front of expansive views of the Maryland countryside, you’ll say ‘I Do’ under a trellis draped in wisteria before retreating to an open-air reception behind the home to dance the night away under the stars.

Design:
Built in 1932, the historic residence and surrounding grounds have captured the imagination of national and international political and cultural figures for nearly a century. In 2017, The Manor House was meticulously renovated, transforming the property into a crisp, chic version of its former equestrian self. In updating the home, homage was paid to its legacy as a breeding and training farm, while infusing a calming and vibrant energy into the aesthetic. Vaulting ceilings throughout the home, allowing more light into the central core and finishing the walls in raw plaster and antique molding in shades of white, breathed instant life into the rooms. A nod to the home’s heritage, dark, rich floors, waxy raw woods, and heavy, hand-woven Belgium textiles also elevate the design and add texture and warmth. Layered with antiques from around the world, used in a sparse and understated way, the overall palette and spirit stay young and impactful. The 127 acres surrounding the estate only enhance the experience, with each window perfectly framing a scenic view of the pristine countryside.
Standout Venue Features:

Take a dip in one of the properties two quarries or visit horses in the barn and pastures.  Equestrian-related activities can also be coordinated for those groups that are interested.
