About Karen Lowe
We have lived in Middleburg since 1977 and enjoy gardening, photography, kayaking, hiking, reading, antiques, architecture and travel. Rick is a life-long Washingtonian, while Karen spent part of her childhood abroad before coming to the D.C. area. Over the years, we developed our 66 acre farm to raise and market Christmas trees, herbs and horses. We built our home and barn first, then the guest cottage. We enjoyed years of escorting our son and daughter, and their numerous ponies and horses, to horse shows throughout the Eastern U.S. Our daughter, her husband and our seven grandchildren live in their new home on part of our farm. Our son, an economist and MBA, is now the Vice President of Global Finance for the Tom Ford Division at Estee Lauder. Rick has retired from residential real estate sales after a 25 year career, and Karen has developed and run a small gourmet food business producing herbed and fruited honeys and wine vinegars for the past 35 years. Karen is the President of Goose Creek Herb Guild. We enjoy numerous trips each year to the Eastern Shore of Virginia , where we enjoy the island life at Eagle's View, our waterfront vacation home on Chincoteague Island, and our antique house, My Chesapeake Dream, in Cape Charles.
Karen Lowe purchased this House in 2002
Why Karen Lowe chose Middleburg
The pastoral scenery, wildlife and quiet country roads are what drew us to Middleburg. We cherish the friendly hospitality of the hunt country, the traditions and history of the area. The serenity our quiet country farm setting provides is a delight, yet we are within an hour of the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Museum, National Art Gallery, National Cathedral, Georgetown and all the cultural opportunities in our Nation's Capital.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the serenity...the absence of traffic sounds, the presence of bird calls, the expansive views, the walks through the tree field or up the gravel road. We spend relaxing time leaning on the fences, watching the horses, cows, donkey and miniature goats grazing in the pastures, often joined by a small herd of white-tail deer in the evenings. We enjoy birdwatching and identifying many species, hearing the call of the mourning doves and seeing hawks riding the air currents. We love to read on the stone patios, nap or read on the front porch swing, serve meals al fresco, and enjoy the fresh air! On a winter evening, a blazing fire in the stone fireplace encourages many happy conversations. The sunset view from the den and covered porch is quite spectacular! On the farm we have one retired show horse, a darling miniature donkey, miniature goats, chickens, a Scottish Highland cow, our doggies, perennial flower gardens, a Christmas tree farm and endless quiet roads and hiking trails available....our definition of Paradise!
