  1. Tour This Renovated English Tudor Murphy-Living-Room-Chandelier Murphy-Exterior Murphy-Dining-Room-TableThough the story of the stately English Tudor home that Shannon Murphy and her husband, Steve Bakir, share with their three children begins with a sad tale—the original house was damaged by fire after it was struck by lightning—the new-and-improved version stands as a testament to the good that can come from a bad event. Choosing to look forward rather than back, Shannon and Steve worked with a crackerjack team for a near-total renovation that allowed the pair to design a custom home that suits their active family to a tee.
