With two bedrooms, and a hide-a-bed sofa in the living room, this house is perfect for two, or even two couples, and will sleep six in a pinch. The sunnyside front porch is great for lounging and enjoying Missoula's fresh air, as well as the friendly greetings of neighbors and visitors out for a stroll. The flagstone patio with gas grill in the privacy-fenced back yard is great for outdoor cooking and dining .
Furnishings are a blend of very old and very new, but the overall look and feel of this house is graceful turn-of-the-century (the 19th; it was built in 1900.) Like-new kitchen appliances, HD tv with Roku, great sound system and fastest wireless internet in Missoula are at your 21st century service.
The Orange Street Food Farm, one of Missoula's favorite grocery stores, is four blocks away. A convenience store, boutique clothing shop, restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses, a craft brewery, a whitewater gear/paddleboard and surfboard shop, vintage vinal record stores, a florist, a movie theater and much more are all within three blocks, An inland surfing wave, movie theaters, bars, live music venues and more are within six blocks. And yet this is a peaceful, quiet place. Miraculous.

This 116-yr old house is on a quiet street lined with old maple trees, amongst other beautiful old houses in a designated historic neighborhood. It's within walking distance of almost everything that makes Missoula such a fun, vibrant town. The Big Dipper ice cream stand, with its long, sunny day lines of customers, is just down the block and around the corner. The Kettlehouse Brewery, featuring national prize-winning beers, is a stone's throw away. Le Petite Outre, Missoula's best bakery, is even closer.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I'm a writer/editor, my wife is a school librarian. Missoula is our town, but we live and work twenty miles away. We have long planned to move to town after we are both retired (still about five years out) and started studying the housing market two years ago. We spent several nice spring and summer mornings in 2013 and 2014 bicycling around the older Missoula neighborhoods we favored, admiring the many nifty houses. We knew that nice old homes in Missoula's nice old neighborhoods don't come on the market very often, and when they do, they sell quickly. We fell in love with several, and watched the few that sported For Sale signs get snapped up immediately. We began to think we should buy now and occupy later.
Why the Owner Chose Riverfront, Missoula, MT, USA:
We found a realtor, let her know what we hoped to find, and she called us early in the morning the first day this great old house was listed. We dropped everything and drove in to check it out. The next morning we presented an offer and a few weeks later it was ours. The hard part now is having to wait a few years to live in it, but we are happy to make it available to others in the meantime. We prayed that the house would be a blessing to everyone who enters it, and it's been gratifying to see how happy our renters have been with it; they all seem to love it as much as we do, and have taken exceptionally good care of it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Front-porch sitting is a common and favorite way to relax at the end of a summer day in this neighborhood. it almost feels like a southern-states thing, kind of homey and genteel. But the climate and the old maple trees lend it more of a New England small-town atmosphere. The full-time residents have been so friendly and welcoming, even to our summer guests, who haven't been there long and won't be staying long. There are quite a few young families with very small children in the neighborhood, and there is just a general sweetness about it all. Except for one aloof and worried dog down by the corner that sometimes barks and disturbs the peace for a while until someone walks over and reprimands him.
