Virginia House, Richmond

3.8
#11 of 13 in Parks in Richmond
Virginia House is a manor house on a hillside overlooking the James River in the Windsor Farms neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia, United States.
The house was constructed from the materials of the sixteenth-century Warwick Priory in Warwickshire, England, and shipped over and reassembled, completed several months before the stock market crash of 1929. Virginia House is in the Tudor architectural style but incorporates a range of designs from other English houses and has modern facilities such as ten baths and central heating.
Virginia House was built by Alexander and Virginia Weddell, salvaging many materials from the Priory and other old English manor houses and adding further elegant English and Spanish antiques, oriental carpets, silks, and silver. Today Virginia House is operated by the Virginia Historical Society as a house museum, although it largely remains as it was in the 1940s during the Weddells’ tenancy. Immediately to the west of the property is Agecroft Hall.

  • Attended a Corporate event here. The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful! Such a neat story behind the house. The only tough part is there is no parking available, so it's a matter of finding street parking in neighborhood streets.
  • This place is very beautiful!! I definitely had an amazing time, the garden was beautiful, family friendly, and if you enjoy outdoors and are looking for a good place, well this is it.. They have like a little mini zoo, with a bear, some fishes, and a few more wild animals. I highly recommend this park, weather you are looking to exercise or exploring.
