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.
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.
Don Burgess purchased this house in 2014
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.
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.
This house is complete with high quality finishes and climate control. The location is convenient and walking distance to downtown, multiple restaurants and high quality coffee shop. I recommend this property without hesitation.
The house is exactly as nice as it looks in the pictures. It is very clean, well equipped and spacious. The location is perfect for walking to downtown. A short walk over the bridge and you are at the farmers market or walk a block and you are at the hipstrip with restaurants and shops. Don was very helpful with any questions that I had and pleasant to work with. I appreciated his flexibility on check in and check out times. I definitely recommend this house.
We loved the house - clean, well stocked and completely comfortable. Front porch and back patio were lovely.
Comfy beds and nice tv for finishing up the Olympics. Great table for playing our new favorite game, Bananagrams.
The location could not have been better for river walking, dining and shopping. And, the owner was communicative and very kind.
We will definitely return to this little jewel in Zootown.
We came to Missoula to visit our son and we couldn't have chosen a better home to stay in. We are very seasoned VRBO travelers and this was one of the very nicest homes we have stayed at. The owner Don was a pleasure to get to know and was very helpful with information about Missoula. Location, location, location! This house has it. You are within close walking distance to many incredible restaurants, the river and it's walking path and downtown Missoula. The house was perfect inside and out and we really didn't even want to leave, we were ready to move in!
We searched for a home that was in the heart of Missoula, close to restaurants, shops, the river front, and had easy access to running and riding trails. This house was perfect. We stayed in the house for five weeks and we didn't want to leave. I can't think of anything that wasn't as advertised. In fact, I'd say it was perfect.
There were four of us (two adults, two children), and we had plenty of room (we were a little worried that the house would be too small, but that wasn't the case). We could walk from the front pourch to a great grocery store, several fantastic restaurants, bakeries (We spent a lot of time at Bernice's Bakery just behind the house), and outside parks (the Clark Fork River is a three minute walk from the house). The house is located on a fairly quiet street with many beautiful homes; plus, the neighbors were extremely friendly.
Perhaps most importantly, the property owners are wonderful people. They made sure we had our needs met and the house was what we expected - and it was. It's super clean, uncluttered, and had all that we needed to be comfortable and cook meals. It looked exactly as I remembered from the pictures. The yard has recently been landscaped and looks fantastic - we were there as the flowers were in bloom. It was wonderful to sit out on the large front pourch and enjoy the yard and street. They had a wonderful TV and sound system - which we never turned on, as there was so much to do nearby. If you're interested in experiencing Missoula, this is the place.
We would have a hard time staying anywhere else in Missoula. This house was exactly what we wanted. Thank you to the owners!
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.
