130 AcresLot Size
Beautiful Timberframe design 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home PLUS 2 bedroom 2 bath fully finished guest house nestled among mature pines along Rock Creek, western Montana’s only designated Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. This one-of-a-kind, 130 acre property offers the rarest of opportunities for quiet enjoyment of the great outdoors, privacy, and convenient, year-round paved access to the nearby vibrant community of Missoula, Montana. This property boasts approx. 3,000 ft. of frontage on the stream, legendary among anglers for its annual hatch of giant salmon flies that drive native cutthroat, rainbow, and brown trout into feeding frenzies. For generations, fly fishers from around the world have converged on Rock Creek in early summer to witness and try their luck with the fish during this awe-inspiring natural event. This property was the first in Rock Creek to be protected with a perpetual conservation easement held by the Mt Dept. of FWP. The result of a broad-based collaborative conservation effort, that easement set in motion decades of conservation work in Rock Creek that now assures the abundant natural values of the entire Rock Creek watershed will remain intact for generations to come. Majestic Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep are frequent visitors to the property. White-tailed deer, wild turkeys, bald eagles, osprey and other wildlife use the protected habitat on the property. Vast tracts of nearby public lands afford countless opportunities for hunters, anglers, hikers, floaters and wildlife watchers.
