Gramercy Mansion is a historic estate and Tudor-style mansion located on Greenspring Valley Road near Stevenson University in Baltimore County, Maryland. The mansion was built in 1902 by Alexander J. Cassatt, the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad and brother of the American Impressionist painter, Mary Cassatt. It has since been restored and renovated to its original grandeur, making it an ideal venue for various events such as weddings, parties, corporate events, and engagement sessions.

The mansion was designed by the architect Edward Hughes Glidden, who was known for his work on several notable buildings in Baltimore. The design of the mansion is a blend of various architectural styles, including Gothic, Tudor, and Colonial Revival. The mansion has a unique charm and elegance, thanks to its stunning architectural details such as the stone walls, intricate woodwork, and stained-glass windows.

The mansion is tucked into 45 acres of gardens and wooded walkways, making it a beautiful location for outdoor events and activities. The property offers a pool and tennis court for guests to enjoy, and they can sip coffee or tea by the fireplace, which adds to the mansion’s cozy atmosphere. Gramercy Mansion features 11 guest rooms, each with its unique style and decor, providing a comfortable and relaxing retreat for guests. The rooms are equipped with modern amenities such as a flat-screen cable TV, and certain rooms feature a fireplace, adding to the luxurious and cozy feel of the mansion.

Over the years, the Gramercy Mansion has hosted numerous events, including weddings, corporate events, and parties. Its exquisite beauty and serene ambiance make it a popular choice among couples looking to tie the knot in a romantic setting. The mansion features several event spaces, including the Carriage House, the Mansion’s first floor, and the landscaped gardens, which can accommodate up to 225 guests. In addition to its stunning indoor and outdoor event spaces, the mansion also offers luxurious accommodations for guests who wish to stay overnight.

The Gramercy Mansion’s lush gardens and breathtaking views of the countryside make it an ideal location for engagement sessions and photo shoots. The estate’s serene atmosphere and scenic views provide a perfect backdrop for capturing stunning photos.

It’s worth noting that the rental price for portrait sessions at Gramercy Mansion is quite high, and reservations cannot be made more than 2 weeks in advance, which may be a deal breaker for some. However, for very special occasions, the setting may be well worth the price. The mansion’s stunning architecture, beautiful gardens, and scenic views do provide an ideal backdrop for capturing memorable photos.
