2012 Mansion in May is a Royal Treat!



ROYAL TREATMENT: Glynallyn is located in the heart of Morristown’s Millionaire’s Row neighborhood, an early 1900’s country retreat for New York City’s rich and famous.

If you want to feel like a queen for a day, take a trip to Morristown’s historic Glynallyn Castle during the month of May.

This one-of-a-kind estate is the much-anticipated venue for the 16th annual Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens, sponsored by the Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the property is a fine example of authentic English Tudor architecture in the United States. It’s a treat for the eyes, with abundant museum-quality details: 575 stained-glass windows, plaster-carved ceilings and mantles, stone-carved faces, coats of arms, and arched porticos.

The 32,000-square-foot castle, with its 66 rooms, 19 fireplaces and 7.5 acres of terraced gardens, will be returned to its original grandeur and made relevant for 2012 living, thanks to the skill and imagination of more than 60 interior designers and landscape architects.

The event will be open to the public from May 1 through May 31. Proceeds will benefit the new Inpatient Hospice and Palliative Care Center at Morristown Medical Center.

More than 20,000 visitors participated in the May 2010 mansion tour, luncheon and boutique shopping, so snag your tickets early at mansioninmay.org.
