About Robert MacDonald
Both originally from Ohio, we met in DC and got married at Tranquility Farm, less than a mile down the road. We fell in love with the area and planned to use this as a weekend place and set up a studio here for Rob, who is a photographer. You can see many of his pieces throughout the house. We unexpectedly had to move to Japan for work for a few years but intend on retiring at Hillandale.
Robert MacDonald purchased this farmhouse in 2016
Why Robert MacDonald chose Blue Ridge
We got married down the road from Hillandale and one day after visiting the wedding venue we noticed the property for sale and decided, on a whim, just to take a look. We immediately fell in love with it and decided, on the spot, to buy the farm. We love that it feels remote and peaceful but is just 20 minutes from Leesburg, 30 minutes from Dulles, and a stone's throw from downtown Purcellville. The property was owned by one family for 7 generations and the house feels like it tells that story with its eclectic layout and various cubbies and staircases. We've renovated the bathrooms and kitchen but tried to keep as much of the historic charm as we could.
What makes this farmhouse unique
The house combines the modern amenities of renovated bathrooms, kitchen and wifi, with the historic charm of an old Virginia family farm. It is fun to discover many of the original fixtures and details that remain throughout the house. With room to sleep up to 14, it is a great location for a group gathering or weekend trip out to the country - enough space for everyone to be together and relax and not feel on top of each other. The backyard space is perfect for an al fresco dinner and watching the sunset. Hillandale is close to local wineries, breweries and Franklin Park.
