About the owner: A lover of all things beautiful especially homes and furnishings I have owned and operated Random Harvest, a high end home furnishings business in the NYC and Dc area for over 30 years.
Why the Owner Chose Brightwood, VA, USA:
We searched for years to find the right combination of easy to get to and that peaceful feeling of knowing you are truly away from it all. This property had unsurpassed views in literally every direction with total privacy. Alas the house was a mess but with such great bones we could not help to want to bring it beyond what it had become.
