Dillon house description

This beautiful and spacious home is located in the spectacular Pioneer mountains in southwest Montana, 35 minutes west of Dillon and 90 minutes southwest of Butte. Home is located in Torrey Mountain Ranch Estates directly off of the Pioneer Mountains National Scenic Byway which runs through the Grasshopper Valley to Wise River, Montana. Home sits at the top of the former ranch and overlooks the valley and Maverick Mountain downhill ski area. The area roads are plowed throughout the winter. Elkhorn Hot Springs and miles of cross-country ski and snowmobile trails are 5 miles from the house. This home backs directly to public land so you can hike directly out of the back door up into the Pioneer Mountains to spectacular high alpine mountain lakes with great fishing, wildlife and high mountain scenery. The home is also within 30 minutes of the Big Hole River and the Wise River both famous for fabulous river rafting and blue ribbon trout fishing.

Activities and adventure: This property backs directly to state land that is adjacent to federal (USFS) land. Consequently, the renters of this home have direct access to thousands of acres of mountain wildlands. Hike right from the house to high alpine lakes. Moose, mule deer, elk, sandhill cranes, eagles, hawks, hummingbirds and other songbirds are frequent visitors. Bear and wolf tracks are often seen when hiking behind the house. Yellowstone National Park is 3 hours away. Bannack ghost town, the first territorial capitol of Montana, is 25 minutes away as is Coolidge ghost town. The Big Hole Battlefield National Monument, nature trails, museum and interpretive center is a beautiful one hour drive from the house. Torrey Ranch Estates includes a small grocery store and 2 small trout fishing ponds for children.

More home details: This attractive, custom built home is 14 years old, solidly constructed and well-insulated. The exterior is cedar-sided and features two decks as well as a front patio and a back patio. The interior is highlighted by an abundance of wood and many large windows. The house is surrounded by aspen trees and large boulders and the views from all rooms of the house incorporate these into the expansive mountain views. The walkout basement includes a guest bedroom and full bath, a utility room with washer and dryer and a study/family area with a piano, foosball table, large windows and a walkout patio.

More home details: The main floor of the house includes a large master bedroom featuring cathedral ceilings, French doors with a walkout balcony (great views of the ski area) and a beautifully done master bath which includes a tiled vanity with two sinks, an oversized built-in (tiled) tub, and an attractive separate double shower. There is a large etched glass window between the master bath and the master bedroom. The large kitchen, also on the main floor, has extensive tiled counters with multiple oak cabinets and drawers. The main floor dining area features walkout sliding glass doors to a back patio and the main floor living area features multiple windows and access to a large deck. The main floor guest bedroom has two large windows and there is a separate, adjoining full guest bath (with tiled vanity). The upper floor has a fourth bedroom with beautiful views overlooking the aspen trees and a separate full bath.
