About the owner: We are the Bush Family from Cape Coral Florida. Our only son is a Florida Gator Grad! We are originally from NE Ohio but have lived in Florida for over 29 years. Our goal is to move to Murphy in the coming years. This small town offers friendly folks, a great hospital, and all the shopping one needs!
We own and run a small auto body repair shop in Fort Myers Florida. We do light collision but our passion is restoration of the classics! We run to Murphy whenever time allows to enjoy our home. The peace and quiet is a welcome state of mind!
Why the Owner Chose Murphy: We love Murphy and the friendliness of the good people of the area. It's a slower pace and a handshake still means something. We hope to retire to this community in the coming years. We have owned and sold 7 or 8 land lots in this area and came to realize exactly what we wanted in a home. No road noise and that long western view. Nothing beats a fabulous sunset at the end of a long fun filled day! AND we have EXCELLENT neighbors and friends!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: It's so peaceful! We love the view of the mountains from the deck and the quiet of the woods. Our lives are hectic and this place offers a get away from all the daily stresses and trials. We are just a day trip away from some great places like Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and just 2 hours from Atlanta. Gem mine, white water raft, boat,or shop, it's all in this area of Western North Carolina. But some days,I just like to sit and listen to the birds chirp and watch the squirrels play in the trees. Watch for the Air Force fly boys! every now and then a fighter jet will come and go so fast and so low you won't even see then but you'll hear them!
