Whether you are hosting the ultimate wedding weekend or a small group retreat, escape to a private estate nestled in the rolling hills of Monkton’s countryside. Foxfire’s Manor House was meticulously restored in 2017, paying homage to its legacy as a historic horse 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 stays 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.
With over 8000 square feet of living space, the elegantly furnished Manor House has six bedrooms and bathrooms, six fireplaces, a pool and two quarries, one of which makes for an ideal and secluded swimming hole. A remodeled chapel serves as an additional two story guest cottage, and features two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. It also sits next to a quarry.
Hosting just 4 exclusive, large-scale events each year, Foxfire is a one-of-a-kind destination. A secluded haven in the heart of Maryland’s renowned Harford County horse country, Foxfire is located about 40 minutes north of Baltimore and 90 minutes from Washington D.C.
Guests are treated to a breathtaking arrival, enveloped in maple trees on their drive to the stately manor, while passing rolling hills, grazing horses and manicured gardens along the way. Elegantly situated in the center of the property, the 8,000 square foot estate offers the perfect backdrop to endless design palettes. The property can also accommodate up to 21 guests for those who wish to stay onsite.
Couples can exchange vows in a variety of locations including a romantic trellis overlooking the countryside or in front of an enchanting quarry before enjoying an open-air reception behind the beautiful home. With photo ops at every turn, guests are also able to use the expansive grounds for multiple wedding-related events of varying guest counts including a welcome reception, rehearsal dinner or Sunday brunch. The team can also work with you to coordinate equestrian-related events during your stay to truly take advantage of the local culture.
