Hidden in plain, a historic mansion towers over this 20th century enchanted garden. Once the estate slowly started deteriorating after the deaths of both Hugh Rodney Sharp & Isabella Mathieu du Pont, Preservation Delaware stepped in with the support of the community & Sharp family to rescue it. In between the ivy covered stone walls, the gardens is meticulously maintained & bursting with vibrant life. The walkways show off the grounds’ plants, breathtaking water garden & Lily Pond, antique Italian statues, & The Estates very own tea room. Open to the public year around, the gardens has 5 areas to be reserved for private events. Starting 2021, we will be the exclusive caterer & direct contact for coordination.
An event venue designed for your dream wedding and reception experience. Nature inspired views throughout the property provide the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony and stunning photos. The repurposed architectural features will captivate your family and friends. And our personal approach to your wedding guarantee an experience you and your guests will remember for years to come!
