Long time Front Royal family shares art collection

Published

One of many Inman Otis Kibler paintings.

Small town Front Royal is, and has been, home for some big time talent. The natural beauty of the mountains, flow of the river, and wonderment of our sunsets and rainbows are obvious marvels, but the true magnificence is our people.

As a Realtor, one tends to have many adventures when listing a home. Once in a while, you walk into a listing appointment and know that this one is different; different because as you entered through the door, you know this house is a HOME. The life that was lived inside the home is still buzzing in the air. As I looked around the McFall home last month, this is how I felt.

In 1986, the McFall home had its debut in the Garden Club of Warren County’s Annual House and Garden Tour. The property featured lovely furniture, decor, and oil paintings throughout the home. These very paintings remained on the walls until just recently. Are you curious to learn more about these oil paintings? I sure was after noticing each was signed I.O. Kibler!

Inman Otis Kibler, founder of Kibler Furniture in Front Royal, was indeed the artist who had crafted the paintings. After quizzing his grandson, Gary McFall, I learned that I.O. Kibler had taken up painting in the 50’s or 60’s. He had been mentored by top DC artists. I.O. Kibler painted a variety of subjects, from portraits to landscapes to everything in between. For a slide show of the artwork, click here, or check out the following video:

FOR SALE: Dream home for golfers

Published

on

Watch & Learn about the latest property participating in my 10-10-10 WHAT MATTERS Initiative!

It’s a like-new nearly 3,000 square foot home on two lovely acres! The “10-10-10 Initiative” typically is structured so that 10% of my commission is donated to the nonprofit of the seller’s choice, 10% to nonprofit of the buyer’s choice, and 10% to WHAT MATTERS Initiatives. These sellers decided to generously allow their future buyer to choose the nonprofit to receive their 10%, so whomever purchases can choose two nonprofits or 20% to their single favorite cause. That idea inspired me to allow the future buyer’s Realtor to choose what nonprofit will receive the WHAT MATTERS portion of my commission. Please help spread the word about this spectacular property so that when it sells, three nonprofits will benefit! Learn about the property below:

Where to begin?

This listing is a DREAM HOME for golfers who still wish to enjoy a private and wooded two acre lot (it backs to Sly Fox Golf Club yet has NO HOA). It’s also an ideal home for those who desire one level and a nearly maintenance free lifestyle. As a “smart home” wired with high speed net and a fantastic security system (with a camera system accessible from anywhere in the world), it is also perfect for those who work from home. Commuters will appreciate the remarkable location near I-66 and I-81.

Yes, this home has something for everyone PLUS a price tag BELOW appraised value and far below the amount sellers have invested in this showplace!
