A Grand Georgian Estate

One of Virginia’s finest Georgian estates, Gallison Hall sits on 43 acres just three miles from the University of Virginia and in a world of its own. The immaculate 1931 mansion and beautiful country estate presents a fairytale setting that begins with majestic iron gates and a tree-lined driveway, opening up to sprawling mountain views and unmatched architectural splendor.
 
An ode to Virginia’s historic homes, Gallison Hall’s original owners Julio Suarez-Galban and his wife Evelyn Allison combined their names to form Gallison and carefully shaped their home with intricate craftsmanship that spans detailed woodwork, slate roof tiles and a stately stone courtyard flanked by double staircases and parterre rose gardens. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Virginia’s Landmarks Register and features extensive grounds, an indoor pool pavilion with a lounge area and carved marble fireplace.
 
Choose from romantic secluded ceremony spaces that include a spacious patio and a small knot garden overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains and a brick courtyard with a boxwood garden. Host an elaborate reception under the grand event tent on the lush green lawn. Call on the property’s all-inclusive packages and in-house team of kind and accommodating specialists for expert guidance. Gallison Hall offers an alter, dance floor, lighting, tables and tents for wedding ceremony and reception use and is available for wedding showers, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners.
