Ours are free where other communities charge admission. Murphy has the small town charm, yet all the conveniences and features of of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex are only minutes away. The review posted my L.R. should be removed for two reasons. First, it's nearly a decade old and bears no resemblance to the community of today.

The houses are nice but they do not match the location, unless you like living down the street from cow pastures. Murphy is very undeveloped and the reputation is known for people who want a nice house but can only afford to live in cookie cutter houses in country land. Read Less
