This incredible 534 acres serves as the front door to thousands of National Forest Service acreage. Since homesteaded in 1910, this property has rarely exchanged hands. The Retreat has served as home to the current owners since 2001 and is now offered to the public for sale. The property is entered through a private meadow with a meandering stream, Two Bit Creek. From the meadow, the property climbs timbered hillsides towards spectacular views of the Highland Mountains, the Basin Creek Valley and the city of Butte in the distance. Despite its proximity to Butte, this is some of the best elk habitat in SW Montana. A year-round pond completes the property. The main residence is a modern ranch designed by JCM Architecture, Missoula, MT and built in 2001 by Earhart Builders of Butte, MT. It contains four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and boasts over 4,300 sf of upscale finishes. The property also contains an oversized garage and guest home.
