Magnolia Manor Plantation For Sale

It doesn’t happen often that a unique property with a sterling reputation and proven business income becomes available in our area. When that property includes 13 acres, a restored and updated plantation house that dates originally to the early 1800s, several original outbuildings, a pecan orchard with 21 mature trees along with a variety of other trees, and a magnificent showcase Magnolia tree, it is truly a one-of-a-kind offering. The Magnolia Manor  could be your primary residence if the business wasn’t part of your dream.

Magnolia Manor Plantation is a rare gem. Known as a charming Bed and Breakfast, and operated since 2003 by the current owners, the distinctive property is also a premier wedding and event venue in the

Piedmont area, consistently winning awards for its “barn weddings.” However, the sophisticated charm and stunningly beautiful setting of this Warrenton property belie that description. No matter. If you are interested in further exploring the possibilities of Magnolia Manor Plantation, please contact us at your earliest convenience. 

Contemporary Wedding Trends

Outdoor weddings, particularly those that combine rustic elements with traditional romantic trappings, are all the rage. A recent article in The Atlantic notes that in 2017, 15 percent of couples planning to “get hitched” chose a farm or ranch for the event, and flocked to local barns throughout the nation for receptions that combine both rustic and upscale elements. 

It’s a trend that continues to grow in popularity, according to online wedding authority. The Knot, a popular digital magazine and wedding planner, insists that traditional venues are losing their appeal. In the search for personal expression, meaningful individuality and trendy themes, what has become known as “rustic chic” is at the top of the list. Part of the appeal is the juxtaposition of natural beauty and timeless tradition as exemplified by worn woods, soaring spaces, weathered beams and earthy accessories that can be brought together in a barn setting.

One explanation is the immense popularity of outdoor ceremonies; retreating to a barn for dinner and dancing eliminates the need for a ballroom and, essentially, tosses old “rules” out the window. While beautiful gowns and formal wear are still the choice of most couples, a barn wedding is as likely to feature bare tables and wildflowers as formal table setting with candles and exotic centerpieces. There is a more relaxed vibe. Crystal, engraved menus, white tablecloths and tiered wedding cakes can give way to Mason jars, chalkboards, homespun and pottery, and cupcakes with ice cream.

A barn wedding doesn’t necessarily spell boots and denim or polkas and square dancing, but it does tend to put all ages at ease, and prompts wide smiles on the faces of all guests! Millennials, in particular, gravitate to the inherent informality of a natural, sometimes folksy setting, even though rustic does not equate to cheap!

North Carolina Barn Weddings

Our state, with its varied terrain and unique historical sites, offers great options for outdoor weddings, from the beach to the mountains. There are also many choices available for a rustic-themed celebrations.  

The barn at Magnolia House Plantation, however, is not your typical red barn with an overflowing hayloft. In fact, you won’t find hay bales anywhere on the property, and there are no farm animals in residence.

What there is, instead, is a choice of distinctive ceremony sites scattered throughout the acreage.

Couples can choose to exchange vows on the front porch of the manor house, in the orchard, under the spreading boughs of the Magnolia tree, or elsewhere — on a secluded rise with only lawn and sky for a backdrop. Receptions are most often held in the Carriage House Pavilion, known as “The Barn,” complete with a wooden dance floor and a bar setup contained within an adjacent silo. But, again, there are options.

That’s just part of what makes Magnolia Manor Plantation appealing.

Wedding packages at this historic venue traditionally allow use of the home’s interior spaces for changing rooms or for overnight guests, and the grounds are available for wedding and engagement photographs. 

Looking Ahead

The reputation and future potential of this year-round business are intertwined with the property’s appeal as a wedding venue, but it is equally suitable for other types of celebrations and corporate events or just call it home. A cadre of trusted and cooperative vendors is available to transition to new ownership and to building ongoing relationships. 

If you are interested in further exploring the possibilities of Magnolia Manor Plantation, please contact us at your earliest convenience. Opportunities like this never linger long on the market. $985,000!
