Reading, Pa. native Danny Seo is a male, environmentally conscious Martha Stewart — if Martha Stewart were busier than she is and not an ex-felon. He’s a published book author. He has a syndicated column called “Do Just One Thing.” He has a line of home products is sold at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods. He’s a Today show regular. He makes organic wines, and sells his bath products and fragrances on the Home Shopping Network. He’s a spokesperson for a couple companies. And now he’s a magazine publisher, with the first issue of Naturally, Danny Seo out this month.

As an introduction to Seo, the magazine features his Bucks County “glass house,” which is a mid-century modern-style beauty — a little Kahn-inspired jewel in the woods. An interview with him about the house does more to explain its appeal than any listing could. A few excerpts:


I was attracted to this house for a couple of reasons. To me it was Japanese temple meets Bucks County farmhouse—east meets west, which sort of describes me. It also has the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere—I can see nothing but trees and the creek from my office—but around the corner are all the conveniences of a suburb.

Here you experience how the environment changes through the year. I was attracted to the energy of the house and the flow. It’s comfortable everywhere in the home. And, seriously, my friends like it here. There’s a sense of calm when they’re here. I also love that there was just one owner, a fine artist. The finishes weren’t touched the entire time...

It's a truly phenomenal house with a river-stone hearth, 18-foot beamed ceilings and, of course, an eco-friendly environment sited on 2 acres above a rock-bed stream. The gallery tells the story.
