© Leesburg Today - 12/01/2015

Alex and Jill Vogel got the text on a Friday in August.

The $7 million estate was theirs two weeks later.

Jill, a state senator from Upperville, and Alex, founder of the VogelHood political-finance research firm, are now figuring out how to transform the property formerly owned by billionaire Rachel ""Bunny"" Mellon into a warm home for their eight-person family.

""I was just bowled over by what was there and the potential. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,"" said Mrs. Vogel, who hopes to move in to her new, 280-acre farm by the spring.
