Tarheel Subdivision – a Mountain Community in Murphy NC – The perfect place to buy and sell real estate!

The Tarheel Subdivision in Murphy, North Carolina is of of Cherokee County’s most established developments. With a a variety of different homes and land for sale in this community, it provides many options to buyers and sellers alike. Not only that, it’s the home of The Poltrock Team at REMAX!



One of the most well know phrases in real estate is, “location, location, location.” Without a doubt, Tarheel’s location is one of its greatest assets. I tis located behind the Murphy Fire Department in downtown off of Talc Mine Road. Owners are able to enjoy the extremely close proximity to downtown without having to pay any Murphy City taxes.

When you speak with folks who live in Tarheel, you’ll notice that almost everyone mentions how you “feel like you’re in the woods and minutes from town.” Most of the residents can be in downtown Murphy in five minutes or less, depending on what section they are in.

Tarheel is divided into several sections:

  • Tarheel North
  • Tarheel West
  • Tarheel South
  • Lover’s Leap


Tarheel conisists of a great group of folks. It boasts lots of full time residents (including The Poltrock Team! 🙂 With everything from attorneys to teachers to excavators, you get a great mix of folks. There are also a number of part time vacation homes in the mix.


One my favorite things about Tarheel is the fact that is bordered on one side by Murphy City Limits and by US Forest Service and Lake Hiwassee on the other. This prevents Tarheel from growing into a sprawling subdivision and keeps it what it is today.


Almost every land parcel in Tarheel is restricted preventing things such as mobile homes, random farm animals, junk, and more. Learn more about Deed Restrictions and how they work in Murphy NC. Many people looking to buy in Murphy like this fact as they do not have to worry about an undesireable home/junk being next to them.

Could I build another home on the property since there’s so much land? Absolutely! This property is actually comprised of 3 seperate lots put together. The other two have really good homesites on them as well. The well produces enough water to support multiple homes, so there would not even be a need to drill another well. Just go through the permitting process like you would for any other home and you’ll be able to take it from there.

Do I have to pay road or water fees? Nope. This property has its own private well and is a state maintained road almost right to the property. The road to it is paved and it has its own private driveway.

What are the taxes like? The 2008 tax bill was just shy of $1600. It’s currently done as two different parcels and you could possibly save a few bucks on your tax bill by combining the parcels for tax purposes.

How far would I be from town? Less than 5 minutes from downtown Murphy. The nice thing about this home is you’re close to town, own a lot of acreage, and are extremely private.

Where’s the waterfall in relation to the home? About a hundred yards or so away. You can sit on the back porch and listen to it.

Would it make a great rental? Absolutely. Folks tend to like uniqueness and privacy while not being in the boondocks when they rent a vacation home. This is it to a T. The owners themselves don’t have it on any rental pool, so if you would like more information about renting it out when you buy it, you can speak to our rental office to find out more information.

Are there any restrictions? Yup! They’re very basic restrictions that are designed to keep your property values up while still letting you use it. Things like no home less than 975 square feet, no mobile homes, and your dreams of owning a pig farm in the mountains is done for! 😉 You can download a set of the Tarheel West restrictions here. (It will reference a road fee but it has been eliminated since the state took over the main road in Tarheel West)

Can I see some documentation on it? Yup! Click here for the survey of the home. Click here for the floor plan. You can also get the restrictions here.
