Whether it’s a lifestyle or gardening seminar with Chris, your daughter’s wedding reception, a corporate cocktail party or a group tour on a 55-passenger bus, the entertaining opportunities at The Edgemont House are endless!
With over 6,000 sq. ft of space under roof (and six bathrooms!) The Edgemont House can accommodate groups from 25 to 250 and anywhere in between. The interiors, designed by Kevin Green Design Firm, inspire both awe and amazement in every room of the house. The enclosed courtyard, portico, gravel Oak alley and formal gardens are landscaped and planted in the most unique and colorful way…as only Chris H. Olsen can do…(remember, it IS his personal home!) From the minute you step into The Edgemont House you will be transported to another time and era: when homes were grand and parties were even grander. Chris seamlessly melds historic architecture with modern design.
The Edgemont House has a formal receiving parlor, a large formal living room with fireplace downstairs, a formal dining room with table and chairs for 12, a breakfast room, kitchen, portico with fireplace, large enclosed courtyard with 24 iron chairs, a gravel Oak alley with fountains, 5 farm tables and chairs that can accommodate up to 50, front formal gardens with a period correct fountain, a front patio and a breath-taking view of the Little Rock skyline.
Always dreamed of an elegant intimate wedding at home, but just lack the house? The Edgemont House offers the perfect place for small weddings of 30 or less, and then has the perfect venue for your wedding reception of up to 250 people. Wedding portraits done inside the house or in the gardens are magical memories.
Group meals at The Edgemont House are nothing short of spectacular. Whether it’s a stand up cocktail party, a reception or formal seated dinner, your guests will consider it a treat. You have the option of using our in-house caterer or choosing one yourself. Many guests don’t won’t want to leave after it’s over. The Edgemont House offers a “sit where you like” option for most meals, as guests sometimes prefer to move freely about the house at their own leisure and pace. But nothing is more spectacular than a fully seated dinner and tablescape around the formal dining room table or outside under the night sky on the farm tables. The Edgemont House has serving pieces for up to 80 guests.
Chris, himself, is on hand at most events held at The Edgemont House, along with 2 house hosts to take care of your guests ever need! Let us make your event simple, easy and elegant!
