Broodmare Barn Conversion

In 1950, the Broodmare Barn was constructed as stables for Paul Mellon's prize-winning horses. OSGF has now transformed the space into unique accommodations for visiting scholars, artist residences and internal gatherings.

The Barn consists of three rectangular wings around an open-sided courtyard. It is situated on the northeast end of the property, a peaceful space with exceptional views of the fields and mountains.  Care was taken to preserve the original character of the barn, with only minimal changes made to its exterior. Name plates outside the stalls will remain as they are, identifying the horses that once resided there. 

Inside the barn, larger changes took place. The horse stalls were converted into nine sleeping suites, a meeting room and a common space area. Renovation work began in August 2016 and was completed in April 2017. The barn now functions as a vibrant living and meeting space where OSGF partners and guests can enjoy facsimiles of Paul Mellon's equestrian art and the rolling countryside of Oak Spring.
