The house of the late Toni Onley is on the market…and real estate agents are trumpeting the connection to Toni Onley. Onley’s house listing (V583367) on MLS and other sites makes the connection clear.

At first glance, it might seem tacky to mention the artist so blatantly. But a closer look at the beautiful home makes it easy to see how it would have inspired Onley. I think the home has probably been staged to make the furnishings a bit less intimate. Still, the kind of buyer who feels a connection to Onley’s art probably would see this as a true home and not as mere investment..perhaps pumping up the value of the home, in a roundabout way.
