Murphy NC Exit Realty Leap Year

Image result for leapyear

Why do we have Leap Year?  It takes 365 1/4 days to circle the sun   (A solar year), which means our calendar is out by around a quarter of a day a year.

In 45 B.C Julius Caesar began the practice of adding an extra day every 4 years, making up for those quarter days. That would be perfect if a solar year were exactly 365 1/4 days, but it is 365.242 days making it a little short, and over time it adds up.

By 1582 A.D. that slight discrepancy added up to 10 days. So Pope Gregory XIII created the “Leap Year” adding February 29.

Now a leap year occurs in every year that is divisible by four, but only in century years that are evenly divided by 400.

In Murphy NC at Exit Realty Mountain View Properties we are celebrating Leap Year with a brand new grandchild. This will make 18 grandchildren for Corky and I.

Chalet Style Mountain Home

Reduced! Now asking $154,900!


The drive from town to the property is very picturesque. Near the end of a private paved cul-de-sac is this wonderful chalet, nestled behind a fragrant grouping of forsythia, butterfly bushes and roses, home to many varieties of colorful birds. There are two screened porches, each running the entire length of the home, and two full-length open decks, all on the main level. From here you can admire the several herb and flower gardens, as well as the huge custom-made planter on the rear deck, currently holding perenniel herbs and flowers for your culinary and sensual delight. The chalet is equipped with a whole-house water purification system. Your family chef will appreciate the spacious pantry, the large new farm-style sink and the kitchen island which has been modified with a secret sliding feature which facilitates preparation and serving of meals. The vegetable garden to the southeast of this house has been enriched for three years with organic compost; it produces the best-tasting vegetables summer and winter. The original crawl-space under the house has been augmented to provide enough space to store at least eight months’ worth of food, canned and fresh, as well as other supplies, and all walk-in closets have been generously enhanced with extra shelving. The outside of the basement level has been skirted to provide privacy screening for garden equipment, etc. Your neighbors are considerate, friendly and proud of their property and of this small community that you will quickly grow to love as much as we do! The wonderful seasonal mountain views will always belong to this property; however, furniture and appliances are negotiable.
