Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: Hello, I'm Gina Nelson. Our family has the good fortune to live at Braidwater Farm on the Flathead River. I'm a practicing Obstetrician Gynecologist. I, like the other members of our family am a naturalist, a sportsman, and most of all a maker. Our love of our land and the enjoyment of sharing this place with people binds our family. My husband Greg is a artisan builder and an outfitter as well as an experienced mountaineer. Our children are daughter Echo and son in law Brian, both biologists, and sons Forest and Vale, who are engineers.
Why the Owner Chose Kalispell, MT, USA:
We bought this land in 1995 because it has been our dream to do so ever since we married in 1983. It is riverside fertile farmland close to town, in the hunting grounds Greg frequented as a youth. We first built our guest quarters and barn, then later built our own house. When our house became finished, we began having guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is pastoral to wild here, and yet convenient to the activities we do in daily life. We are able to farm, garden, experience the River and have horses, and yet I can get to town and every other area in the Valley very quickly. The architecture and decorating are products of more than twenty years of dreaming, planning, and work. Being here enables me to enjoy their distilled beauty every day.
