Exquisite Ranch Property with Historic Charm and Natural Splendor
Welcome to your dream home nestled on 163.3 acres of untouched beauty, once part of the illustrious 6,000-acre RavenWind Ranch. This exceptional property, now available for purchase, offers breathtaking mountain vistas, pristine natural landscapes, and abundant wildlife, including Elk, Moose, Mule deer, Whitetail deer, Antelope, and a myriad of bird species. The irrigated meadows and serene waters of Snowshoe Creek attract these magnificent creatures, making this a haven for nature enthusiasts.

Key Features:
Rich History & Elegant Details: The historic four-bedroom home, built in 1928 as a teacher's residence, has been thoughtfully enhanced over the years. A Merchant Marine added unique touches such as an Italian fireplace and leaded glass doors. Recent updates include kitchen and bathroom renovations, added insulation, and large double-pane windows.
Modern Comforts with Classic Charm: Enjoy cozy winter nights by the gas fireplace insert and stay cool in the summer, thanks to the enhanced insulation. The rustic wood shingles, supported by a durable copper underlayment, add to the home's charm, while the full unfinished concrete basement offers ample storage or potential for expansion.
Unmatched Water Rights & Natural Springs: With full water rights to Snowshoe Creek, the property features sub-irrigated pastures and irrigation ditches maintained by the same family for nearly 40 years. The one-mile stretch of privately owned Snowshoe Creek and five natural warm springs that remain unfrozen in winter create a fantastic fishery predominantly inhabited by German Brown Trout. According to water rights experts the potential exists to build a spring fed pond where the current spring/wet lands are currently located.
Functional Outbuildings & Thriving vegetable Garden: The property includes an older shop/garage, adjacent corrals with frost-free faucets, and three outbuildings with electricity. A productive garden has been yielding robust crops since 1993.
Ideal Location & Accessibility: Conveniently located on a county-maintained road for year-round access, this tranquil retreat is only 8 miles to public school, 30 miles from Helena's Airport, and 1.5 hours from Missoula.
A Wildlife Paradise:
Witness Moose calving in the lower pasture, Elk grazing in the meadows, and a variety of birds soaring overhead. The natural beauty and serene environment of this property provide a perfect backdrop for a peaceful and fulfilling lifestyle.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of Montana's heritage, where history, nature, and modern living harmoniously coexist. This property is more than a home—it's a legacy.
