Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Murphys, CA, USA:
In the late months of 2014 Jimmy was looking for a project. He owned a beautiful home in Murphys already, but wanted something more. He became interested in this property because of it's proximity to downtown, it's size and its history. With our family, the drums beat loudly and we all became interested when Jim asked if we'd take a look at the Original Murphys Schoolhouse that was up for sale with him. Included on the property was the recently decommissioned community pool. We'd all been visitors to Murphys over the years and had taken our children to swim in that pool back in the day. When we first looked at the home on the property it was a bit of a shock. Time had not been kind to her nor had some of the past residents. Most of the people in town thought we'd have to tear her down, after all, there was no foundation, all the plumbing and electrical were ancient and the structure had been ravaged by rot and unskilled wanna-be carpenters. We didn't want to do that. We wanted to pay homage to the history of the structure but with modern materials and a modern aesthetic. We knew we were going to need help: enter Rob Westerhoff and Tommy Tutthill. We met with Rob, a local architect, and Tommy, a local magician contractor and tried to relate our vision. Or should I say Jimmy's vision? The rest of us admit that Jimmy knew what he wanted. He could see how it should be and the rest us are glad he led us to where we finished. Before it was finished though, it had to be painted and furnished and decorated. This is where the 3 sisters put their signatures on the project. If you like how it looks it's because of them! They did an outstanding job! It has been a fun ride. We are proud of what we have done and we want to do more!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Murphys is a fantastic town but best enjoyed when you are in it! We are only steps to all its goodness! Come and see! We offer:Old country charm with all the modern conveniences!
