Property description

This is a wonderful home situated just minutes south of Missoula on the Bitterroot River. The downstairs offers a game room with a pool table and foosball, workout area with a treadmill and free weights, wet bar and theatre area.

Outside activities on the property include a firepit (for storytelling and s'mores), horseshoes and a newly added volleyball court as well as swimming, fly fishing and rafting.

The main level features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen and island, a timberframe post and beam throughout with a rock fireplace, and a master suite with all amenities, including a gas fireplace, TV, artist easel, master bath, walk in shower and gas fireplace. Lots of outdoor decking and living areas overlooking the river, including a hot tub and covered porch/barbecue deck. Included is a river view apartment over the garage.

A magical place in both summer and winter, this home is a stones throw to Missoula.


Wildlife viewing opportunities include year-round ducks, geese, eagles, fox, deer and elk, and the occasional beaver trudging upstream. For the fishing enthusiast in the family, there are opportunities to take Rainbows, Browns, and cutthroat trout, and well as a place to put in or take out a raft. This home is also available for weddings. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Albert Zepeda has been a Montana resident since his family moved from California in 1974. What started out as a family trip across the northwest ended as a complete change of venue. The confluence of river, mountain, and stream led his family to buy a rickety house and ten acres on the Bitterroot River south of Missoula. It was here that Al first began learning the construction skills that would later become a profession, transforming the old structure into a sturdy home that would last 30 years and counting. Al attended Rocky Mountain College where he spent four splendid years playing defensive back for the Battlin’ Bears and earning a degree in Psychology, while diversifying his college experience with a myriad of extracurricular activities such as President of the Karate Club, Resident Assistant for Jorgensen Hall, and a Senator at Large as well as various other positions within the student government. For the past ten years, Albert has devoted himself to the Construction Industry, keeping current with industry standards and building products to offer his clients the very best in construction materials and value. As a builder of fine residential homes, Albert believes that more money spent on a project does not always translate into a better product, and his clients can be assured that decisions always involve a balance between cost, benefit, durability, aesthetics, and function. The home sits at the end of private drive, Hugo Way, named after Hugo, (the handsome german shepherd featured on the Zepeda Homes Logo). Currently, Al and his new shepherd Strabo are in the process of building the new Lolo Peak Brewery!! While Strabo doesn’t make many decisions, he does seem to provide a mental clarity for his owner. Don’t be surprised if you see him in the back of Al’s truck and you’re sure to make a friend if you have a ball for him to fetch. Al is also a licensed Real Estate Agent in the State of Montana, but that is another story...

Why the Owner Chose Missoula:
The Bitteroot River is a very desirable destination fly-fishing trout fishery, offering many excellent opportunities for rainbows, browns and cutthroat Trout. What I love most about this property is the close proximity to wonderful Missoula, yet when you are at the property you feel like you are in the great outdoors…It is comfortable for one or two people, or large groups... This location also offers convenient access to the outdoorsman that Western Montana is known for.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to missoula, yet feels like you are in the wilderness. Lots of wildlife can be observed from the many decks and outdoor patio, as well as a panorama of mountains.
