Join us for a peek behind the high brick wall that fronts the home of Ambassador Victor Ashe and his wife Joan. You are met with glorious gardens and art surrounding a storybook cottage designed by Barber and McMurry in 1921. It became home to the Ashe family in 1961 and Joan married into the house in 1983. In 2011, the Ashes embarked on a major renovation taking care to retain the original look and charm of the residence. The latest addition in 2016 is a gallery and pool. The gallery is home to their extensive art collection, which has been collected from around the world and featured are beautiful stained glass skylights created by local artist, Chris Myers. Join us for cocktails around the pool and dining in the Gallery.
