Bozeman apartment description

The GarajMahal is a beautiful apartment above a garage (built in 2009) in Bozeman's most traditional 'Norman Rockwell' neighborhood, just one and a half blocks from Bozeman's lively Main Street. It's fully furnished with an eclectic collection from the owner's overseas adventures along with all the practical necessities. There are at least 20 restaurants within easy walking distance ranging from the classic Western Cafe (you'll see authentic ranchers having morning coffee) to the mothership of Montana's MacKenzie River Pizza 'chain' to the ever popular Montana Aleworks (restaurant, bar, pool tables) in a restored freight depot. Four blocks from the annual Sweet Pea Festival of the Arts and all the parades and music fests that happen all summer on Main Street. Four blocks to the library (free computers available) and two blocks to a small but full service super market. To remind us of our agricultural heritage, there are even two grain elevators within three blocks.

Bozeman's growing Main Street to the Mountains trail system is five blocks away, as is the city's most popular sledding hill. Walk to the city swimming pool where weekly band concerts take place in summer. Walk (or take a short drive) to the County Fairgrounds. Our free Streamline Bus Service stops two blocks away. It's an easy drive to Bridger Bowl ski area or you can take the bus. Parking is on the street, but there's room in the garage to store skis or bikes.

                      Bozeman is a university town with many cultural resources in addition to the gorgeous scenery. Museum of the Rockies and American Computer Museum have national status. Approximately 90 miles from Yellowstone Park.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I grew up in Bozeman, graduated from high school here, attended college here, and then went away for a couple of decades, working as a journalist and a U.S. Foreign Service officer. I returned convinced that Bozeman really is the best corner of Montana which really is the Last Best Place. I'm a freelance writer and editor. Even though many residents have been attracted to Bozeman because it has some of the most beautiful, accessible scenery in the U.S., we also have a a lively theatre community, a remarkable symphony orchestra, and a 34-year-old highly respected opera company! And during the school year, there are always performances in various genres happening on the campus of Montana State University.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bozeman:
                      When the time came to rebuild my ancient, decrepit garage, I decided to include an apartment upstairs, to help pay for the construction. When I saw how bright and sunny it was going to be and how wonderful all the roof angles were I decided to share my prime downtown location with vacationers rather than turning it over to a long term renter. At least I get to go into the apartment from time to time to change the sheets!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Living here I get to indulge my love for cities at the same time I'm within minutes of being in my beloved mountains. I'm exactly where I want to be -- and I'm willing to share it with visitors.
