Property Description
In the late 1960's to the mid 1970's the ''Back to the Land Movement'' and its ideals of living a sustainable, simplistic lifestyle away from the rigidly defined urban core was widely embraced in the Rocky Mountain West, and Missoula was no exception to this calling. In 1976, a young Man left the confines of a large West Coast city to explore the Inland Northwest, and he encountered a rare opportunity to acquire what was at one time the Log Bunkhouse that was originally part of an 800 acre Dairy Farm (and purported Moonshine Operation on the side), situated on 3.62 idyllic, albeit then-disheveled, acres, traversed by Ray Creek, cradled by the pine-studded mountain sides, and anchored by a broad, level area that was ripe for cultivation.

Over the past 41 years the Owner/Steward of this unique offering has lovingly, thoughtfully tended to the landscape, using no chemicals or pesticides in the process. On the northern flank of the property a wall of Lilac Bushes have flourished, offering a fragrant shield from the private road above, while over 500 Iris Bulbs were planted along its bank. The inclusion and/or infusion of Lillies of the Valley, Fairy Slipper Orchids, Lupine, Water Irises and more grace the landscape, as the prolific, mature Foliage offers shade and privacy in which to enjoy the cool serenity of Ray Creek; just add a lawn chair and a beverage of your choice. Much of the original, quirky charm still remains with the Cabin, offering a Flagstone entrance into the front Sitting Room, with the ceilings adorned by hand-carved, wood beam accents, a bank of cottage-paned windows, and a corner that offers clues to the interior's past, with exposed logs, Rock and a hearth that adds to ambiance of the space. This region of the cabin would make a fab Den, Home Office or Guest Quarters! The Kitchen features distinctive Pine and Walnut cabinetry, ample, multiple counter and storage spaces, a bank of windows with side yard views, and a nice, concise Dining/Beverage Bar as it end cap. The Dining area features a sizable, built-in Case with glass shelving and a mirrored back drop, perfect for displaying your treasured pieces. The Living Room is altogether spacious, offering a myriad of windows on all sides, allowing in terrific ambient light and views, an Artisan Wood Beam, and a newer, freestanding (Natural Gas) Stove discreetly anchors this space. The sole Bedroom is comfortably-sized, offering two skylights, built-ins and private, French Door access to the Bathroom/Laundry Room combo that may also be accessed from the hallway. A large, multi-level deck anchors the west side of the cabin, offering a fantastic place to have scads of family and friends over to enjoy the scenery and the company together. The lowest level of the decking was constructed over a cement pad with dreams of the installation of a hot tub! In the not-so-distant past, the owner constructed a new 13'X19' shop with vintage, reclaimed lumber, a cement pad, and a delightful loft space that may accessed either through the interior, or through double doors from the exterior. While used as a workshop, this building would make for a fantastic studio space! The water supply to the home has historically been and currently feeds from a natural reservoir, located adjacent to the property, However, the owner recognized the need for a traditional supply line, and there is a new (never hooked up) well that originally tested at 30 GPM; all documentation is on file. For good measure, a local firm, WGM Group, was hired to complete the testing and evaluation of the grounds for a new septic design should the current system prove to be inadequate, and the documentation is in place for the inclusion of a design that would accommodate a 4 Bedroom Home. The property is serviced by Natural Gas, and there is also telephone, cable and 3-Phase Power to the property. Within the past year, an experienced Timber Stand Inspector evaluated the trees on the slopes and was conservatively determined that there's approximately 50,000 Lineal Board Feet of Douglas Fir and Pine trees onsite, and the cultivation of excess timber could bring a nice dollar amount depending on market value, without creating a discernible difference in the landscape's appearance. Water rights are battled over in Montana, but fortunately for this offering, there are a total of 6 Water Rights on file and they will convey with the sale of this holding. Note: Property taxes reflect a discount for the owner and will increase to market value upon the closing of this property. For 41 years the current Steward of this historic offering has valued the integrity of the land, the integrity of the home. He's savored the quietude, the privacy, the wind in the Pines, the soft, lyrical strains of Ray Creek, and inhaled a quality of life that so few people rarely get to appreciate on a daily basis. He loved being able to easily walk to the Rattlesnake Trailhead, and its 34-plus miles of hiking/biking trails into the Wilderness Lands, and yes, he loved that Downtown Missoula was only 5 miles away....when he wanted it to be. When he didn't, he embraced the unequaled privacy that this property accorded to him. Properties of this caliber do not often come along, and it's going to take the right person to appreciate all that it truly has to offer. Perhaps, like the current owner, it will speak to you and let you know that this is THE opportunity of a lifetime.
