Fantasy Farm Friday: Wild Montana Skies

“Oh Montana, give this child a home…”

He was born in the Bitterroot Valley in the early morning rain
Wild geese over the water heading north and home again
Bringing a warm wind from the south
Bringing the first taste of the spring
His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing

Oh Montana, give this child a home
Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

Okay, I would be lying if I didn’t say I would play this John Denver/Emmylou Harris duet on repeat if I lived here.

Speaking of Montana, this equestrian/fly fishing retreat might be just the thing for you if you’re looking to relocate to western Montana and have a spare $1.75M in the bank (or in assets… let’s get real, horse people are creative). This property offers a rare opportunity to own a stunning log home plus three Cabins on a breathtaking 10.75 acre property centrally located in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley.

This remarkable estate offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and modern amenities. The trout stream, Mitchell Slough, gracefully flows between the 4.6 acre sub-irrigated pasture and the 6.15 acre home site. It includes 1/3 ownership of Bell Pond, boasting large-mouth bass, ducks, geese, and other wildlife.

This 1977 home underwent a substantial upgrade in 2016, ensuring a harmonious blend of rustic charm and contemporary comforts. Throughout the majority of the home, you’ll find exquisite wood floors, complemented by in-floor heating in the bathrooms. The spacious tiled family room sets the stage for gatherings, while the great room becomes the heart of the home, featuring a grand stone wall gas fireplace and centrally located Blaze King wood stove.

The main home features 2801 square feet of amazing living space. The kitchen is entirely custom and looks out into the family room. There is tongue and groove siding throughout portions of the log home, plus an awesome master suite with a jetted bathtub to ease those aching equestrian bones after a long day in the saddle.

Check out the view behind the house!! 😍

There’s also this beautiful screened in porch to enjoy an evening cocktail, entertain guests, or just hang out and read a book.

The lot itself also features three guest cabins, so you can have your friends over or send the kids (or your mother-in-law) to their own space (and out of your hair).

Now for the part we care about: The equestrian facilities. For the horse lovers, there is a 46 x 60 five stall barn, which includes fully sealed, cedar-lined tack room.

There is also hay storage, three large paddocks and six covered run-ins, an engineered creek crossing, irrigated pastures, and frost free hydrants (because, you know, Montana can get a little chilly in the winter).

Not pictured, but on the property, is a fly fishing shop, a sauna, a 36 x 68 workshop, a 10 x 20 wood shed, a 10 x 16 garden shed, and a 12 x 35 tool shed. So, there’s plenty of storage, and ample opportunity for side income to support your equestrian habits.
