Keswick Hall and Country Club has been given the green light from Albemarle County supervisors to expand its facility.

In the expansion, Keswick Hall plans to add more than three dozen guest rooms, a spa and fitness center, and a pool bar. 

On Wednesday night, supervisors unanimously approved a special use permit that will add a new laundry and maintenance center, among other small changes. Additional changes are also in the plan.

The changes are supported by the neighbors, some of who were in attendance at Wednesday night’s public hearing.

“What we really care about is adding value to the club, so that we have a nice place to live and an increase in real estate values,” said Steven Gunther, who lives at Keswick Estate. “It maintains our values for all of us in the community. The economic development is an important aspect as well.”

The special use permit will also add a wing to the existing inn for more guest rooms to be built.
