200 Fish Hawk Road, Helmville, Montana, 59843
YES, you CAN have TWO incredibly well-built homes on large, private waterfront acreage, for an affordable price! The luxurious comforts and connectivity of both the main home and the guest house belie the fact that this completely self-sufficient, off-grid, private 20-acre oasis sits far up in the timbered mountains of Western Montana.
Impeccably maintained natural clearing and landscaping provides for easy access around the property, including one of the Chimney Lakes chain of lakes that is on the property. This lake draws a multitude of wildlife, both large and small, along with the open grassy fields around the grounds. The driveway provides access to each home, yet still gives privacy to each building. Both homes have metal roofs and well-sealed siding, for low maintenance and fire safety. Both homes are extremely well-appointed with impressive, detailed, interior wood finishes, tile and wood floors, lofts that provide bonus areas, and cathedral ceilings. Both homes sport large, insulated windows that not only allow you to view the constant wildlife visitors, but also allows for additional passive solar heating. Both homes have two 500 gallon propane tanks that service appliances and act as either a main source of heat (60,000 btu to main house, 30,000 btu to guest house), or a backup heating source to the wood burning stoves. Solar power provides the power to the homes. The battery bank, inverter, and breaker panels are in the basement of the main house. This main home is +/-1500 sf, with an unfinished basement that could be finished to add another 1200+ sf of living area. The spacious kitchen/living room 'great room' area provides ample cooking, eating, and storage areas. A cathedral ceiling and large loft area complete this area of the home. The hallway leads to two bedrooms, one bath, spacious laundry room, and storage closets. The +/- 1100 sf second home has much the same layout as the main home, without a basement, and a smaller loft area. A greenhouse to start your gardens early and a small garage/shop building complete the buildings on this property. No detail has been overlooked on the infrastructure and construction of this property, making it an easy-care, easyliving property. This property is a mere 90 minutes from all shopping, dining, and medical amenities, and International Airport in Missoula, and 25 minutes from Drummond, which has basic services and medical. Access to the property can be difficult in winter, with heavy snow years requiring snowmobileonly access at times. Whether your needs are for a smaller corporate retreat, a terrific hunting/fishing base camp (in area of large elk populations!), a sustainable mountain getaway property, a family legacy property, or the goal of quiet, off-grid living in comfort, this rare offering will provide years of comfort, memories, and continuing awe of your amazing natural surroundings.
