The Homestead River Ranch offers 1,500 feet of river frontage on the lower East Fork just upstream from the confluence with the famous Bitterroot River. Fantastic wade fishing and river floating opportunities are right from the ranch. Water rights and early records show the property was homesteaded in 1885 and the 864 sf historic cabin still remains, boasting additions and upgrades. The luxury cedar ranch home was built in 2008 and features handcrafted authentic materials including real stone, heavy timbers, extensive tile, granite kitchen with knotty alder cabinets. 2 huge shops plus a small apartment. The airplane hangar is used for tractors, cars, and airplane storage. The meadows are irrigated with efficient pivot irrigation systems, and are fenced and cross fenced. Amazing property! The benefits of this property are the stunning views of Trapper Peak, the highest peak in the Bitterroot Range. The views and river frontage offer Valley floor access with the feeling of high mountain splendor. The property has a large pond right by the home and the ranch headquarters have mature willow trees which were likely planted in the late 1800's. The land has productive grass hay for horses or stock. Aviators can land on the grass strip in the meadow and taxi to the hangar. No overhead power lines or covenants. The large pivot irrigation systems make ranch ownership easy. The small apartment could be used by a ranch hand or rented out. The homestead cabin is so special that guests will be delighted. The main home has 4 bedroom suites with two on the main level on opposite sides of the Great Room and kitchen. The home lives like a big cabin with three fireplaces and intimate sitting areas. The overhang of the heavy composition shingle roof wraps the house with shade and covered outside living spaces. There are great views of the surrounding mountains from every window. The artisans who worked on the home added carved doors, heavy king timbers, river stone walls, and excellent use of granite and tile throughout. The thick walnut floors are beautiful and rich. Practical country features include a walk-in pantry, large mudroom with shower, and finished three car attached garage. Storage around the ranch includes a fly-tying hobby barn, equipment sheds, shops with baths, and green lawns around the buildings and pond. Nearby mountain recreation is up the road to Rye Creek, East Fork, and West Fork Canyons with hundreds of acres of forest trails, and only 10 minutes from great skiing at Lost Trail Powder Mountain Resort. Elk, deer and waterfowl frequent the ranch. One of the best riverfront ranches on the market in Montana.
