THE GREAT ROOM

Montana grown and built, the massive kiln dried Douglas Fir trusses grace the 36 foot long great room. Take a seat in front of the Montana Chief Cliff stone fireplace and relish views east to west through energy efficient windows - from the Continental Divide to the Swan River and Mission Mountains.

Built in 2008, the Craftsman style home exudes a timeless quality. It gracefully juxtaposes Montana’s legacy of rugged independence with the luxuries that the 21st century homeowner demands.

THE KITCHEN

Cook and dine with nature at your side. Prepare gourmet meals in the masterfully appointed kitchen with surround sound throughout. Then dine on the antique French table under the chandelier crafted from a Pairs window guard. On warm days, take your meals al fresco on the adjoining deck with panoramic views of the mountains, meadows and river. A fireplace and mountain views to greet the morning

THE MASTER SUITE

Wake up to the 9,000 foot peaks of the Continental Divide. The master is one of two bedrooms and adjoining baths on the first level of the home with radiant and forced air heat and Toto -004 Jacuzzi tub.

THE UPPER LEVEL
