The stunning new event space Barn at Brambleton has opened
The developers behind Ashburn’s Brambleton community have really outdone themselves with their latest project. The community has transformed an old, dilapidated dairy barn into a modern venue for special events.
The Brambleton Dairy Barn – now officially called Barn in Brambleton – The grand opening tape cuts today, but The Burn got a sneak preview tour before the big event.
The Barn at Brambleton is located in Southeast corner of Evergreen Mills Road and Belmont Ridge Road. It was built around 1942 and originally belonged to the Cornelius family.
Anthony Soave – developer of Brambleton – is the man behind funding the major makeover of the barn.
There are two main event spaces in the barn. The Soave Grand Hall is located on the top floor and seats approximately 225 guests.
Downstairs is the Arcola Room, which seats 250 people. This room served as the main milking room filled with metal supports and stalls for the dairy cows. Some of the supports now hang on the wall of the lower hall.
Historical and artistic photographs of the old barn adorn the entrance hall to The Barn at Brambleton.
Much of the wood in the floors and stairs came from the original barn and was reused. Same with some large pieces of tin that originally came from the roof of an old barn.
Original domes from the barn roof can also be found around the property as decorative elements.
At one time there were two silos on the property. One had to be demolished, but the other was integrated into the new space and features a circular staircase between the two levels.
The Barn at Brambleton will be available to host special events for anyone in Northern Virginia and beyond. Planners expect it will also become a popular venue for weddings – and already, there is a bridal suite where wedding preparations can take place.
There is also the groom’s room – officially called the “Milk House” – where fresh milk was stored.
Outside there is a large portico for outdoor events and faces landscaped hills that form an amphitheater of sorts. There is also a large deck outside the Great Hall overlooking the pond.
The first public event at The Barn at Brambleton – where locals can take a look at the space – will be a Christmas market with local artisans scheduled for Friday 15 December.
