Missoula house description

Private family retreat home with 500' of frontage on the Blackfoot River. It is a perfect location for an escape from the urban scene while close(10 min.) to the downtown and the University. One can easily fish and float more than 100 miles of rivers in the surrounding area. It is a float in float out location! The Clark Fork, Bitteroot, and Rock Creek provide a great variety of opportunities for the floater or fisherman.

This spot is a wonderful place to watch birds, and mammals from the deck. We see beaver, big horn sheep, bobcat, bear, deer frequently. The river is a major flyway for eagles, osprey, ducks, geese, and provides nesting sites for many smaller species. With more than an acre of lawn along the river, there are plenty of places to read, play cards, or nap in the hammock.

The primary house has @ 3,000 sf with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 4 fireplaces, with a wonderful view deck looking across the lawn at the gazebo and river. .It has a great kitchen for cooks with all needed cooking supplies.

There is also an adjacent 2 bedroom 2 bath guest house on the river that can be rented separately.

The house has not been offered for rent for the first 20 years we have owned it, as it has been exclusively for family and friends. It is very child friendly and a great place for families and or friends to relax, cook together and have fun.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: I am a retired professional who has enjoyed fly fishing since a child. Our family's primary residence is Santa Barbara, CA. When looking for a retreat spot, I wanted to be in nature and the feeling of privacy. I was unable to find any place that had the feeling of being away from the busy world of today, while still providing access to the stimulation of a great town and University near by. I have been one to spend my spare time in nature. My last job was as Director of the Santa Barbara Museum on Natural History.

Why the Owner Chose Missoula:
It is perfect for a family gathering or for a group of friends to share the Montana experience. Live in privacy on the Blackfoot river, yet only 10 minutes from downtown for shopping, dining, and movies.
