This fabulous estate, on 5.52 acres, with Big Creek rippling by, offers sunset views of the Bitterroot Mountains and expansive lawns suitable for activities from croquet to large-scale entertaining. Featuring five spacious bedroom suites—all with full baths, top-of-the-line beds, and ceiling fans—Big Creek Pines can comfortably accommodate anywhere from 2–12 guests.
The grand master bedroom, with its sweep of large windows, luxurious king-sized bed, walk-in closet, and bath with Jacuzzi tub and shower stall, is separated from activities in the main part of the house and boasts its own little living room, complete with DVD player. The four upstairs bedrooms all have sweet window seats, perfect spots for propping open a book or reveling in views of Nature. Tucked in a nook, a futon bed provides additional sleeping. The airy upstairs hallway is hung with a huge relief map and there’s a table and chairs for cards, games, or chatting. An elk with a stately gaze accompanies your climb up the stairs, while antelope and deer appear to live in every room.
A lovely columned veranda, stretching across the back of the home, has a propane barbecue grill and seating for eight at two tables. Take the rustic stairs descending the bank and be charmed by a railed deck perched on the creek. This bottom land is renown habitat for moose, deer, and birds. Big Creek Pines has 295 ft of private Big Creek frontage.
At your service is a fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet, full-sized W/D, and satellite TV in the living room. A powder room, convenient to the entry and living room, makes for the sixth bathroom.
From here, it’s an easy drive north to Missoula or south to the Continental Divide, with proximity to all the outdoor recreation you can think of—hiking, biking, floating, fishing, lake sailing, superb downhill and cross-country skiing, rock-climbing, and bird-watching. Plus, nightlife with great restaurants, entertainment, and local brew pubs.
In the summer, there’s ample grassy parking and Big Creek Pines can be rented for outdoor events of up to 200 people.
