Third Floor Renovations Completed

A Fresh Look

When built in 1932, the third floor of the Manor House served as the attic to Bowman and Nathalie Gray. Over the years, the attic has transformed from storage space to dorm rooms to guestrooms. On June 22, 1980, a fire ignited on the third floor of the Manor House and on the following day, the president of Wake Forest University announced that the home would be restored to its original 1932 condition and be used as an educational conference center. In 1993, Graylyn became an International Conference Center and began hosting guests and organizations from all over the world. 

 The Manor House second floor guestrooms are the 13 original bedrooms and sitting rooms of the Gray family. When the third floor was renovated after the fire, the rooms were meant to pay tribute to the antique rooms of the second floor, with a modern update. In early 2016, plans were set in motion for a rejuvenation of the third floor, with a fresh new look inspired by what the Gray family would have in their attic—their love for travel and a lifetime of cherished memories. Work began in November 2016 with partners from CJMW Architecture and Blum Construction. 

Renovations were completed in early March, and guests were welcomed to the newly-imagined third floor for the first time on March 17. The redesigned space now boasts 14 guestrooms and an estate suite. We invite you to book your next stay in one of our third floor rooms this spring.

I thought the hublot replica uk was the best so that's why I bought it. I like the watch and would like to have it fixed. So sorry but my son does not like that watch, so if we can not get the original watch we ordered then can we have our money back. It did say they were in rolex replica uk when we ordered it. My son likes the blue dial and rubber strap Rolex 30th anniversary chronograph with blue dial and strap. I have ordered a replica watches from you which was out of stock. For replica watches uk you have taken the money from my account and told me you can send me a Rolex number 29502 which is only 78.00 pounds but I would be satisfied with. But I have arrived home today to find a Rolex oyster number 25902 which is not what I want. This is a birthday present for my brothers birthday and he wants a fake watches with the stainless and rubber strap so can you email me back please and tell me how I go about sending this one back to you.
