John Kovack’s House Tour, Artist’s Home For Sale in Front Royal, VA

Published

on

Beth Waller with John Kovac. Watch the tour of this unique home.

Welcome to perhaps the most private and largest parcel (7+ view-filled acres) in all of Lake Front Royal, with a price tag you won’t believe! Priced UNDER a summer 2019 appraisal, this unique gem is filled with custom features cleverly crafted by the original artist owner who is happy to explain his ingenious special touches. The main portion of the home sprawls through the woods like a magnificent treehouse and consists of nearly 1,200 finished square feet with three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. An additional greenhouse-like entrance, a “man-cave/ping pong room” in the rear of home (19×9), a “sleeping porch” just off the covered master deck (that formerly housed a hot tub) and enormous storage areas throughout make it feel spacious and measure much larger.

Two detached buildings also add to the living area on the property—an artist’s studio with huge view-filled window (15×15) and a workshop (20×18 complete with exhaust system to control dust)with similar mountain/tree filled views from its huge windows. Both have storage under the buildings, south facing windows, well-designed built-ins and gas heat. There’s also an attached (12×5) garden shed (with electric and a hose bib area), an attached (24×4) built in storage room (that has a recycling area, wood storage section and dog access to an exterior fenced area) and a detached 16×8 storage shed (half open, half enclosed). Though the septic is rated for a two bedroom home, there are three bedrooms in the main house and the detached buildings provide extra living space.

Perfect for a weekend getaway or full time residence, the home has an efficiently arranged kitchen (with gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, double sink and pantry under the stairs) and anopen living/dining area (with a $5k easy to clean Jotul stove w/ screen that heats the entire house). Located under 10 minutes from historic Downtown Front Royal with easy access to I-66 and I-81 for commuters, you won’t want to miss this opportunity!

UNIQUE FEATURES NOT TO MISS:
Custom locally crafted mural and stained glass
Large and remarkable rock formations throughout the property
A fire pit area built around an enormous rock formation (below the detached buildings)
Former trails throughout property could be re-cleared by hiking enthusiasts
Zero grass to mow as the vegetation is natural (native plants and wildflowers are a haven for birds and wildlife)
A lovely controllable “pondless waterfall” feature at the main entrance (with goldfish pond)
Long eves to protect windows from aging prematurely
A secluded cul-de-sac location that provides excess parking for guests
Lighted railings to detached buildings
The man cave/ping pong room in the rear of the property (with storage underneath and a roof updated approximately 2 years ago)

BONUS FEATURES:
Laundry shoot, recessed lighting, backup gas heater, “top-down, bottom-up” honeycomb Nextday Blinds, like-new hardwood floors upstairs, clever storage solutions, hammock hook in the masterbedroom (currently a music room) and in “sleeping porch,” heat lamp and solar lights in bathroom, a compost area, Pella windows, gutter guards.
Lake Front Royal lake, picnic area and park access
Nearby Appalachian Trail access
The tree at the foot of the driveway marked with red will be removed by Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.

PASSIVE SOLAR FEATURES:
(in addition to 2 active solar panels that operate LED lights throughout the exterior and interior):
South facing windows in the main home and buildings
Terra cotta Terrazzo tile flooring throughout the main level (toasty in the winter months)
Upstairs is double insulated and main home is insulated by the attached extra living space’s positioning
Inexpensive electric bills are well under $70 per month using wood as heat source (and sellers will leave 3 cords of wood)
Excellent cross ventilation, ceiling fans appropriately positioned, and concrete walls w/ exterior insulation keeps the house cool in summer months and warm in winter months due to the passivesolar design

ABOUT THE SELLER, JOHN KOVAC,
From his Website www.johnkovac.com:

The harp is one of the most ancient of musical instruments and one of the easiest to play.

I share my enthusiasm for the instrument by offering my recordings as well as a number of my books, videos and kits that have introduced hundreds to the pleasure of the harp.

My book Harpmaking Made Simple, my videos, and my folk harp kits have introduced musicians and non-musicians alike to the joys of playing the folk harp. I hope I can do the same for you.

I’m sure you will be fascinated with my newest invention, PVC musical instruments. Click on a tune below to hear samples from the incredible Piper Harp. You can easily build one yourself with the The Piper Harp Kit

My newest book, PVC Musical Instruments And How To Make Them shows how to make 17 different musical instruments from commonly-available PVC pipe. It includes a CD with recordings from an entire PVC orchestra.

I have been making harps for over 25 years and am constantly experimenting in an effort to simplify and improve the design so that anyone with a will and a few simple tools can make a harp. The two newest harp designs are the 26 String Pine Harp that anyone with the simplest of tools can make, and also the 26 string Harpune which is just a little more challenging to build but has a much louder tone than the Pine Harp. Both of these harps are lightweight, ergonomically correct, easy to tune , use sustainable woods, have a cool feel, and can ever be disassembled and reconstructed in very short time for airline transport.

House for sale: Convenient location in Front Royal with lovely mountain views

Published

on

1473 Linden Street, Front Royal, VA 22630 | $225,000 | Listed by Beth Medved Waller, Keller Williams Solutions

Priced BELOW appraisal, owners have invested over 20,000 in improvements that truly make this spacious and bright showplace feel like a brand new model home! Boasting a convenient location (near schools yet away from the school congestion) and lovely mountain views, this lovingly updated home even offers a newer roof and heat pump. From the ceramic tile/upgraded vanities (in both 2019 renovated bathrooms) to the upscale lighting/fixtures throughout… from the nearly new stainless appliances (including a Bosch dishwasher and above-the-range microwave) to the subway tile back-splash… from the full front porch overlooking landscaping to the shaded fenced rear yard (with tree-house sellers will leave or remove as requested), this home is a rare find! Clever and convenient features are numerous from the built-in chalk board in the main level hallway to the kitchen pantry. The basement offers room for expansion and a finished bedroom w/ window overlooking the large lower patio. The washer/dryer area are conveniently located in the lower level and the lower foyer features brand new doors that lead to the rear yard (perfect for a home office entrance or private in-law suite access).

Here’s what owners have to say about their home: “We love watching the beautiful sunsets over the mountains from the front porch. Our family enjoys taking a very short walk to a nearby pond and exploring little natural streams. We love it that the home is a North/South facing home so we can stay a lot cooler in the summer months. The two very large trees in the backyard engulf the backyard in shade so our children have been able to enjoy cooler summer afternoons. We love our quiet neighbors and feeling close to town, but still being able to live in a peaceful location.”
