About Highgate Carriage House

High Gate Carriage House dates back to 1908, built by businessman and coal baron, James Edwin Watson, as part of the Watson family estate named High Gate. Designed by Horace Trumbauer, architect for The Biltmore Estate, High Gate is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Carriage House and extensive gardens now serve as a lovely venue for weddings and other events, business meetings and festivals. Your wedding will have the elegance of a by-gone era. The character of our venue is displayed with a terracotta roof and verdigris copper accents that are trademarks of the Tudor Revival Style architecture. Your Wedding can be held inside the Carriage House with up to 120-144 guests or, seasonally, under the high peak tent placed in the garden for up to 300 guests. Corporate & Social Events are rented by the day. Price includes property rental, tables and chairs. Please contact the event coordinator for pricing information.
