It's easy to see why so many folks these days are opting to make Lolo their choice of location when buying a home or a solid investment property. The scenic drive along Highway 93 South, as it follows the curves of the Bitterroot River and its mountainous backdrop, offers a lovely 10 minute commute to and from Missoula. While the commercial corridor of Lolo offers all of the services necessary for comfortable, independent every day living, it's the quiet, well-established neighborhoods that will charm and intrigue you. As you ascend the gently sloped hillside, a jog or two will find you within an enclave of attractive, well-kept homes that are situated along the coveted perimeter, perched above the valley floor and offering sweeping vistas of the jaw-drop Western Montana landscape. The thoughtfully updated, c. 1993 Ranch-style abode located at 293 Cap De Villa is well-suited to its location and with its attractive, well-established landscaping, the mature Ponderosa and Blue Spruce pines and ornamental trees, along with the wee grove of Aspens that anchor the large side yard, the curb appeal is undeniable! One step across the threshold to the freshly appointed interior, you'll be welcomed with brand new, barefoot-friendly, carpeting in the spacious and altogether gracious Living Room. The vaulted ceiling in this Great Room crown the bank of windows on the Southern wall, framing the always beautiful Bitterroot Valley views, and yet there is still ample wall space left to showcase your larger artworks on the freshly painted interior. The Master Bedroom is well-proportioned, offers dual closets, new carpeting, a bank of windows and a delightful full-length window seat set beneath, and private access to the Main Level Bathroom. This space boasts attractive, next-level linen and toiletry storage, a Bathtub/Shower combo, and hallway access to the comfortably sized secondary bedroom that's located just a short distance away. Servicing this end of the home is the Laundry Room discreetly tucked away at the end of a short hallway (Washer and Dryer included!), and it offers good shelving and a window that allows in light, fresh air and front yard views. Everyone's favorite gathering spot, the Kitchen is well laid out, offering up an expanse of granite-style counter tops, warm oak cabinetry, a suite of appliances, new flooring, and a Breakfast Bar that's adjacent to the open and airy Dining area, which offers sliding glass door access to the upper level, open-air deck! There's also a convenient Half-Bath conveniently located right next to the interior access to the attached, Double Garage. Follow the newly carpeted path to the Walkout Daylight Basement and you will be simply blown away by the how incredibly open and bright this region is, and that's no surprise with its bank of floor-to-ceiling windows, freshly painted crisp white walls and the expanse of large diameter tile flooring at its base. This room has been used as a Bedroom, an Artist's Studio, but really, the only limitation to this impressive space is your imagination. Don't worry, there's a most unique Bathroom on this level that plays host to a Clawfoot Tub (with shower attachments), a pedestal sink and copper colored accents. Ensconced on this level you will also find two additional finished Bonus Rooms, both of which would make great crafting spaces, a home office, or good, in-house storage. While the property offers an impressive 16, 933', only a third of the grounds are level, with the remainder of the grounds undulating downward towards scenic Highway 12. Think of it this way: You get unobstructed views of Traveler's Rest State Park, the Mormon Peak drainage, Lolo Peak, the Sapphire Mountains to the East, and a nicely treed, reasonably level expanse of lawn that has underground sprinklers and low-maintenance enjoyment! Within the past year the owner has painted the exterior and the interior, a new roof and gutter system has been installed, all new carpeting and flooring was installed throughout the main level, a new water heater was installed, and the furnace and central air conditioning system is regularly serviced twice a year! The Lolo lifestyle is one that deserves your serious consideration, offering a gorgeous Western Montana backdrop and the easy commute to all the Missoula has to offer. Go ahead, take the short drive and see for yourself what you've been missing, then reach out to your preferred Real Estate professional to schedule your private viewing of this sweet offering.
