Virginia House, a romantic English Tudor manor house, was relocated to Richmond's Windsor Farms neighborhood in 1925. Nestled on a hillside overlooking the James River and surrounded by nearly eight acres of grounds and gardens designed by Charles Freeman Gillette, it is the perfect backdrop for portraits, retreats, dinners, ceremonies, and receptions.

Preserved with original woodwork and antiques, the house itself maintains its original character while offering modern amenities necessary for large gatherings and special occasions.
