Opportunity is now for a chance at picking up a commuter-friendly secluded acreage. This property will give you the county vibes, and is only 15-20 minutes into Missoula for food, entertainment, and general errands. The property has been professionally logged, opening up the views while still giving you a healthy forest and teaming with wildlife. The current owners are past foresters; you can tell they've been great stewards of the land. The deer, elk, turkeys, grouse, and bear thrive in this area due to the lush undergrowth and huckleberries throughout the property. The land is in a conservation easement that allows the owner to choose a 2-acre building site in an 8-acre building envelope. The easement allows owners to continue to run cattle, horses, and other animals and hay in the pasture areas. The hay field has an irrigation point ready for a new owner to run wheel lines or sprinklers as they see fit. The water rights that transfer with this property allow landowners to care for their animals and ground. The timber can be harvested via a timber management plan through 5 Valleys Land Trust. Access to the property is of a county-maintained road via a deeded easement through the neighbor's land to the north. The property adjoins Montana State Land to the South and Flathead Tribal Land to the east. The outdoor recreation present just out your door is only limited to your imagination. Roads and trails in the surrounding forest allow you to explore and see some beautiful county. Finley Creek runs through the NE corner of the property, which provides one of the sources for a water right.
The other two rights are from the property's unnamed tributaries (spring fed). The power transmission lines and easement are located on the furthest eastern portion of the parcel and run N/S. The property roughly consists of 70 acres of lush timber (Doug Fir, Larch, and some pine), 15 acres of hay/pasture ground, and 5 acres of riparian ground near the springs and creek bottoms. Outbuildings include a two-story barn, hay/loafing, and wood sheds. Fencing does enclose the property but hasn't been maintaining in a few years and will need some updating in certain areas along boundary lines. The grounds in a conservation easement help how the land is accessed on a tax-value basis. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
