About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, Accommodates 6-8 people.
As it goes with old homes, the Queen Anne began to show its age following the elder Carter's passing. It took a year and a half to restore the home to its former beauty and no detail was overlooked. Much remains original, except for the windows. Showcasing 10' ceilings, the salon of this house was a popular place to be after the turn of the 20th century, with the parlor adjoining the living room. From the intricate woodwork details, original hardwood floors throughout, a stunning staircase, large eat-in kitchen and windows everywhere, nothings has been spared in making this house a true home. You wouldn't even know that it had no bathrooms when it was first built! The 'outhouse' has since been moved inside and made much more comfortable and modern. In fact, there are even two!
Keywords: Historical Queen Anne House, two-story home, very private and spacious.

This is a home, therefore a family with kids are very welcome. The parents are expected to supervise their children at all times and must take responsibility on their safety. There are flights of stairs and the yard is big enough and there are always things that could hurt a child, so parents must be aware of their children at all times....moreless

The Queen Anne is situated right on Main Street, a mere 5 minutes walk to downtown. Guests may come in and park their cars inside the back yard by entering through Church Street. The house is but a few meters to Val du Vino Vineyards. In the House: Guests can enjoy playing cards, board games, to those musically-inclined, there is a guitar on board.There is also a Karaoke system for those wanting to practice for the next 'American Idol'!(please take care of these items as they will be inventoried later and charges could appear in your card if damages occur)
Year Purchased: 1955
About the owner: My family and I live in the quiet hills of Oakland. It is very tranquil living among nature. The Queen Anne House offers us similar feeling of peace and quiet. Even though Main Street is often busy with traffic, sitting in the backyard gives us the feeling of being away from it all. My family and I love Murphys. While retirement is not feasible yet, we decided to share our home to folks like us who like to stay in quiet places and relax.
Why the Owner Chose Murphys, CA, USA:
Less than a five-minute walk into 'downtown', the Queen Anne is perfect for private functions or family gatherings. (please inquire for more info on this) Sitting on an over-sized, completely fenced-in compound on a prime location on Main Street, it's the ideal place for hosting a large barbecue, (with added fee)sipping coffee at twilight or playing badminton on the lawn. And with flowers, fruits, and vegetables growing abundantly around the house, you'll find everything at your disposal.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Other things of interest include: * a farmer's market in the summer every Friday, just around the corner from the house. * Mercer Caverns is about a mile away. * more than twenty five wine tasting venues and vineyards dot the Murphys landscape. * Wildly popular concerts at the local Ironstone Vineyard's Amphitheater. * Outdoor live music and concerts at Murphys Park. * Lots of restaurants and shops just down the street. * Calaveras Big Trees Park is a short drive away---for hiking, biking and picnicking. * White Pine Lake in Arnolds offers good fishing and only about 20 minutes drive. Whatever you choose to do, we hope your stay provides you a well-deserved vacation-peace, quiet and plenty of fun. You are guests in our home. Enjoy!
