4 bedroom home in downtown Bozeman, with tons of character. Designed and built to live comfortably, the 2500 sq. ft. house has a study, sunroom (with futon), and deck to make your stay fantastic. Isolated bedrooms mean multiple families can stay, each enjoying their privacy. Neat features include a porch off the master bedroom, beautiful fireplace, log-cabin interior, deck with grill, beautiful kitchen, a piano, and raised garden beds in the back. The house was sustainably built, using existing timbers, a passive-house spec air envelope (exceeding LEED), and passive heating and cooling. The layout makes it easy for guests to have their own private space, as well-- great for two-(or three-) family rentals. Less than a block from a beautiful park, and a 4-minute walk to downtown Bozeman. The driveway allows off-street parking, and the home stays wonderfully cool during the summer.
Childs' Bedroom is perfect for two children. The sunroom is a great location for children to play, or get away from the group. We also have plenty of puzzles, toys, and games for the family. Feel free to make a request, and we may be able to put out something special....moreless

The Master Bedroom creates a cozy, intimate feel, with a great space that just feels nature. The full bath gives just enough separation for privacy, while still being part of the suite. In addition, it has a small balcony-- perfect for watching sunsets on a warm summer evening. It includes a well-lit vanity, storage, a tiled bathroom, and even a laundry chute.
The Guest Bedroom features a TV and a small, private reading space. It also includes exposed rafters, full bookcase, a closet, and a great window open to the sunrise.
The kids' room includes a full/twin bunk bed setup that doubles as a futon. This is probably one of the funkiest rooms you've ever see, and just about every kid (and adult) loves it. It has a closet and dresser, as well as several nooks and crannies.
The basement bedroom is the newest addition. It features an isolated location in a living suite-- including a sofa, desk, privacy door, fully tiled bathroom shower, and custom-built vanity....moreless
The bathrooms are all fully functional, clean, and organized. Hot water is supplied by a gas tankless water heater (endless showers, if you need one). Nothing special here, but nicely designed, functional (and mildly stylish) space....moreless

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I'm a mechanical engineer, and my wife is an agronomist. She is from Montana, and we moved back to raise our daughter. If you are a guest, we are probably camping somewhere-- most likely in Montana, Canada, or Alaska.
Why the Owner Chose Bozeman: Downtown, so we could walk as much as possible-- we call Bozeman home. I hope to move out in a wood box...
The Unique Benefits at this House: I wanted to design and build a home that felt like shelter-- somewhere to belong. I wanted it to be built intelligently, and I built it hoping to give it to my grandchildren. We used best design practices to create a very livable space that fits in the style of the neighborhood. If you are interested in the building design, I would be happy to talk about it, including ADA, passive-house envelope, passive air conditioning / convection, high-efficiency fireplace, GSHP, human-scaled dimensions, light use, and space use, to name a few.
