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:

Garden tour description from 1986 brochure:

Published

on

Price just reduced to $274,500! You’re invited to join me at 280 Creekside Way in Front Royal on Tuesday, August 28th from 11am-1pm for a public and broker’s open house! Or call me at 540-671-6145 for your private tour! This lovely property offers 1,400+ finished square feet, three over-sized bedrooms (with excess closet space), 2.5 bathrooms and a full unfinished basement for expansion (there is a rough-in for a future bathroom and doors leading to the side yard). The future happy homeowners will appreciate many upgrades including: hardwood floors, ceramic tile, fenced yard (with fort and play set that can stay or be removed), a 27 foot long deck (recently painted), an installed radon remediation system, upscale lighting & fixtures, crown moulding, breakfast bar, wainscoting, upgraded stainless appliances (including KitchenAid and Bosch brands), Baldwin door hardware, newer HVAC system (replaced in 2012), motion detector lights and a charming pathway in the woods that meanders to a private view spectating area (surrounded by mature landscaping and raised bed gardens).

The motivated sellers will even credit to widen driveway (they never found it necessary to expand it) OR will contribute to buyer’s closing costs!  Act quickly because a home in such a fabulous location (close to I-66, shopping, parks and public river access) with these features and such amazing views (especially from the upper sitting area) is a rare find! Sellers also wanted to be sure to mention their close proximity to the popular A.S. Rhodes Elementary School!
