Grooms Room

Glen Magna Farms is truly a unique property that leaves a lasting impression on all who experience it.

This bedroom was used by Ellen Peabody Endicott from 1893 until her death in 1926. From 1926 through 1958, it became the bedroom of Louise Endicott. Louise enjoyed life in Danvers so much she once commented that “it is near as heaven as one can be in this world”. Upon her death in 1958, she left the Derby Summer House to the Danvers Historical Society.

We wanted the Groom's Room to become a more inviting, comfortable, and social space for the Groom and his

Groomsmen. Our inspiration came from the idea of Joseph Peabody purchasing this property for his "Gentleman's

Estate". A masculine retreat that for us was inspired by the plethora of menswear fabrics and tones we imagine would be present at the gatherings taking place at the mansion. We will keep the beautiful existing furniture set of the sleigh bed, dresser, and tables and introduce a club chair in a soft leather that will be one of the many rich materials within the space. We plan on creating a layering of pillow fabrics, deep wood tones, metals, and textural accents. A fresh coat of paint in a sophisticated hue will create a clean, effortless look while the carved fireplace remains a focus. A combination of new and existing art from the mansion will grace the walls to allude to the lengthy history of the property.

 

CARNATION ROOM

Named for its wallpaper, this bedroom was used by Louise Endicott after her husband's death in 1936. Prior to that it

was used as a guest room adjoining the bedroom over the Little Parlor. Louise enjoyed life in Danvers so much she

once commented that "it is near as heaven as one can be in this world". Upon her death in 1958 she left Derby Summer House to the Danvers Historical Society.

 

A ROOM WITH A VIEW: Notice the large rice jar in the circular drive way. It is a Minoan Grain Jar the Endicotts brought back from their travels around 1930. To the left take note of the Sargent weeping hemlock, a gift from the Arnold Arboretum.
