Property description

The Rattlesnake house is a delightful blend of 1940’s charm and twenty first century ease. Nestled in the lovely lower Rattlesnake valley, the home features stunning views of Missoula’s iconic Mt. Jumbo and Mt. Sentinel. Enjoy morning walks through Greenough Park or an afternoon of hiking or biking in the Rattlesnake Recreation area. You will find the best of Missoula at your fingertips, including The University of Montana (within walking distance of Griz games), farmer’s markets, museums, fine dining, cafes and bakeries. The beautiful Rock Creek and Clark Fork rivers provides an opportunity for world renowned fly fishing, floating, swimming, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding. There are seven golf courses in the area. Additionally, this house is perfect for the out-door enthusiast with the Rattlesnake Wilderness just up the road. It is ideal for family gatherings, stress-free vacations, or a place to heal and relax after a treatment at St. Patrick Hospital.

This classy abode features a gorgeous back patio and grill, ideal for summer barbeques at foot of Mt. Jumbo. Enjoy vegetables from the garden and Italian plums in the late summer and early fall, all from the back yard. Come winter, curl up by the fireplace with a good book or play board games with friends in our the overstuffed leather coaches. On the main floor, you will take pleasure in a cozy living room, classic dining room and state of the art kitchen. Stay fit and healthy in the workout studio and entertainment room which includes a treadmill, flat screen TV, free weights, and yoga mats. The master suite features stunning bamboo floors and a slate multi-jet shower. Finally, enjoy a souvenir of the “last best place” by purchasing any of the 17 spectacular framed prints of the Missoula valley displayed throughout the house, taken by professional photographer, Tom Robertson.
