Beautiful Historic 5-bedroom Home in the Heart of Central Virginia.
About Emmie Woody
In 2014, the co-owners of Grelen (Zeke Galvin, Leslie Gregg & Dan Gregg--from left to right) purchased Spotswood Lodge to help house the wedding parties for their growing event business. As they continued to expand, Boxwood Villa was purchased 2016 to add to Grelen's lodging offerings. After extensive renovation it opened May, 2017. Leslie Gregg, a life long creative and self-taught designer managed the renovation and re-decoration of both properties with the help of contractor Lance Clore. To say that she has a passion and talent for design is an understatement. Leslie transformed both of these homes from run-down and drab to modern, lux, farmhouse fabulous! In addition, Leslie led the development of the Rural Routes Trail (ruralroutesva.com), a tourism-focused consortium of wineries, restaurants, lodgings and others in Central Virginia. Leslie has a BA from The University of Michigan and an MBA from The University of Virginia. Her background is in business consulting, marketing and retail.

Why Emmie Woody chose Orange
This property was a diamond in the rough. Built in the late 1800 it had wonderful bones but hadn't been updated in years. The house and grounds needed a ton of work which is right up our alley! Grelen Nursery re-landscaped the beautiful grounds which had been let go and Leslie Gregg had a blast renovating and updating the home which hadn't been touched in years.
What makes this House unique
Boxwood Villa is set on a beautiful piece of property (13.5 acres) and is within walking distance to adorable Main Street, Orange. It has a .5 mile trail around the property and is set within the gorgeous Central VA area. Within a quick drive visitors can get to many wineries and historic sites as well as Gordonsville, Charlottesville & Culpeper. There is also an amazing property Manager/Concierge Director, Emmie Woody! Her services are free to those who rent either property and she is an invaluable resource. Emmie is happy to help you plan your trip--just ask!
