Montana Mountain Private Retreat! Nestled in the Northern Bitterroot Range sits a one-of-a-kind luxury oasis that combines natural beauty with lifetime construction, luxurious accommodations with practicality; and a private multiple building compound that is easily accessible, yet only a 30-minute drive to Missoula, MT on paved roads for all medical, shopping, and dining needs. The curving asphalt driveway brings us to this estate hidden from the road. The Everlog (concrete log structures designed to be impenetrable and maintenance free, yet beautiful) is combined with a metal roof, extra insulation, and large windows throughout the house to create a year-around quality living experience! The blending of interior wood accents with natural textures and finishes flows throughout this well-designed home. The layout of the building provides (as does the entire property) for many options in living style. The covered entry deck brings us to a custom, beautiful, almost castle-like front door. As we enter the grand foyer (with elk tracks leading the way!), a grand fireplace is the focal point of the first living room we see. Several rooms on this floor could be offices, extra sleeping areas, or formal living, sitting and dining areas, and the master ensuite on the main floor gives the option for one-level living. The granite and tile kitchen has abundant counter and storage space, a pantry, and a sunroom to the side for growing gourmet herbs and vegetables year-around, if desired. The open stairs to the lower level bring us to a large secondary living area, with two large bedrooms, secondary kitchenette/butler pantry, laundry, workout room (with humidity control), storage rooms, firewood storage, and multiple discreet entrance/exits. The attached 3-car garage is well insulated, with more storage areas. It's a wonderful walk through the attaching hallway to the home, with large windows on both sides, taking in those mountain views! Moving to the outside features of the home, A private, enclosed lanai provides a delightful reading/relaxing area, or an intimate small-group entertaining area. Another sitting area that brings the feeling of being 'a million miles from anywhere' is the back deck: covered, made of composite wood, and views of the fenced back yard and into the trees and mountains. Wildlife love this area! A fenced vineyard and garden area are nestled into this landscape setting, as well. All walkways around the house are paved, the mature landscaping enhances the comforting feelings of the natural landscape that surrounds us. On to the 80' x 100' insulated, finished 'dream' shop! Divided into 3 garage bays, with extra storage rooms and a walk in cooler, this shop has a total of 7 garage doors and 6 man doors, to provide plenty of access to the multiple garage spaces/rooms in the building. Ample electrical capability, and an overhead corner propane heater provides comfort and capability for any project. Every part of this shop is finished, clean, and ready to provide space for a myriad of work/storage/parking/hobby spaces! Behind this shop is an additional 65' x 40' metal storage/hay shed which also has 50-amp electrical service. On this end of the property, a variable-length shooting range, several park-like settings of mixed conifer and lawn, firepits and private trailheads up the mountain and to the Forest Service expand and diversify the property. There are open spaces that could provide for horses/livestock (this was once a horse property), with multiple frost-free faucets throughout the property serviced by the strong 20 gpm well. Two buried propane tanks (1000 gal and 500 gal) provide long-term energy for the property needs. The true sustainable and self-sufficient nature of this Montana mountain estate is strengthened with the individually housed 30 KW backup generator. Mountains. Hunting. Fishing. Hiking. Horses/Livestock. Sustainability. Luxury. This property truly checks ALL the boxes for anyone's property needs! Can't wait to see it? Call Theresa Lunn 406-544-5970 or your real estate professional.
