This gorgeous property, nestled on 41+ lush acres in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley, is just minutes from Missoula, and combines the convenience of single level living with stunning river frontage. This is the ultimate hunting property where deer, elk, turkeys and waterfowl frequent. Hang a deer stand, ground blind, or just watch the teaming wildlife. The home is warm and inviting and features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2016 sf of living space, which includes a living room with oversized windows for sunshine throughout the year, and a large dining area. The spacious kitchen is truly the heart of the home with newer appliances, plenty of cabinets and a work island/breakfast bar. A 2nd family area is conveniently nearby and includes the warmth of a wood stove and a sliding door to the deck. The master suite features an en suite with both a soaking tub and separate shower. The home includes 2 additional guest rooms and a full hall bath. When you step out onto the redwood deck, which runs the length of the house, you will feel the calmness and serenity of Mother Nature flowing through you. The acreage is a wonderful mix of pasture and trees, and is a home canner's dream with peach, cherry, nectarine and apple trees as well as raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. There is plenty of room for a kitchen garden and a fenced dog run for Fido is already in place. The acreage, on 3 separate parcels, sweeps along past a detached 2 car garage with shop, several outbuildings and on to the Bitterroot River, where you can fish right from your own property. Wildlife is abundant here and you'll be amazed by osprey, eagles, mallards, wood ducks, deer and elk right in your backyard. The property is fenced and cross fenced and irrigated by the warm water slough or as the seller calls it, the Oxbow channel, which connects to the Bitterroot River. This is also where the horses or cattle sip water all year long. Updates during the last year include a new well pump, new roof, completely new Cedar siding and new windows. For the waterfowl hunter, you have river access and two sizeable sloughs. You could build a crop impoundment and flood crop. The hay field could be turned into a grain field to attract them as well. So many options. Lush forested areas abound. This property was listed for $1.2 million in 2009, and since then the owners have added a large shop. This single owner property is one to cherish for generations and is the answer to why so many people choose the Bitterroot Valley in Montana as their home. A very rare offering.
