Private Homes house description

An 'Old Whitefish' home, newly renovated, still with its original charm and a view of Whitefish Mountain and city beach at the foot of Whitefish Lake or Central Ave only a short walk away. The Railway district is in the heart of Whitefish, in a lazy and quiet little neighborhood convenient to just about everything. Feel like you are part of the neighborhood while you are enjoying you are grilling in the back yard. See the town like a local, as a pedestrian, living right downtown.

The location is just one block to Whitefish hotspots such as Mambo's, Loulas, Pescado Blanco, Swift Creek Cafe, 2nd Steet Pizza, The White room Ski Shop, Glacier Cyclery, and just 2 blocks to Central Ave., the Farmer's Market, Gallery Nights, the SNOW bus pick up and two of Whitefish's best parks on the Whitefish River. It is also located just down the street from Whitefish Lake Golf Club, which also offers cross country skiing in the winter, and The Wave Fitness Center. Hop on your bike and it's just a short ride on the bike path along Whitefish River to City Beach at Whitefish Lake. You'll love being able to get to and from the shops, restaurants, and all that Whitefish has to offer with such ease.

          Car: Recommended

          Sitting in a quiet neighborhood in downtown Whitefish. Just blocks away from restaurants, bars, boutiques and spas. Right outside the door is access to the Whitefish trial system which takes you a short .4 mile walk to city beach. Is only 30 minutes to Glacier National Park west entrance, 10 minutes to the base of Whitefish Mountain Resort, and 15 minutes from Glacier International Airport.


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: I moved to Whitefish on a whim 3 years ago and fell in love with the area. I have bought property in the Railway District to fix up the existing structure and to help the revitalization of our neighborhood.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          This is an old Whitefish home built in 1918 in the Railway District of downtown Whitefish. A cute house to begin with and is being updated and opened up to a more modern feel. We lovingly named it The Hobbit House because of how small all the rooms were was when we bought it. Now we made it so you don't have to duck through doorways! We have opened up the house and allowed its charm to shine through.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Only 3 blocks from Downtown
