Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Live in the Bay Area and have put our heart and soul into renovating the main house and the guest apartment. We are currently working on our garden so that in the future we can offer a variety of home grown fruit and vegetables.

Why the Owner Chose Murphys:
Needed a place to call our own and a restful place to retire. Added bonus of family across the street and wonderful neighbours.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Tucked away on a country road, a short walk to Indian Rock Winery and a quick drive to downtown Murphys and many other tasting rooms, shops and restaurants.
