Modeled after Italian Renaissance architecture, The Patio is a gorgeous wedding venue as well as an incredible corporate event location. This sweeping interior courtyard is surrounded by Botticino marble and features a stunning fountain as its centerpiece. It’s unique space is one of the few Gatsby-era estates still intact and the only estate of Italian Neo-Renaissance style in the area.
Built by John Jakob Raskob between 1916 and 1918, The Patio’s beauty so inspired his wife, Helena, that she often described it as a “Castle of Dreams.” We love to see the beauty of this space magnified with enchanting weddings, social events and corporate functions. Enjoy J. Scott Catering’s delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails on the outdoor terrace, make your grand entrance down the magnificent double staircase, and dance the night away under a striking stained glass ceiling.
We are pleased to partner exclusively with J. Scott Catering for all culinary needs at The Patio. Let us help you plan your dream wedding reception at this dazzling 20th century mansion!
We believe it’s important to preserve The Patio’s unique, historic beauty, so we ask that it is used with museum-like care and conservation. Events that take place at The Patio must be appropriate to the venue, and participants must understand the significant historical and personal value of this “home of Archmere.” Visit the J. Scott Catering website to learn more about The Patio and to schedule a tour.
