                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: After leaving Chicagoland for Florida in 1993, we have lived on the water in FL ever since. Thought we'd try something DIFFERENT--- a mountain retreat! Just come up and SMELL the fresh air! HEAVENLY!

                  Why the Owner Chose Murphy:
                  Looking for cooler summers, we thought a mountain home with spectacular views would do the trick. We love this location- PAVED road leading right to our driveway - NO SCARY steep driving - NO 4 wheels needed / The Springs, gated community, only has about 20 homes now-- but will be even better at build out.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Gated community/near Mountain View Marina & Hiawasee Dam. HOT TUB**HOT TUB - need I say mor?? We love the southern exposure of this home/the VIEWS are all around us. Plan to fish in the stocked pond on property. Before we bought, while going back for a 2nd showing, we saw 8 wild turkeys in the middle of the road & 2 deer on the sides!! Love the wildlife and QUIET here. The whole development has paved roads to hike up and down every morning! WHEW!!
