SOLD – This beautiful 70 acres (69.955) acres in the Mission Creek area of Livingston is graced with over a 1/2 mile of premium trout stream with brookies, browns and rainbows. This is a place where one can unplug from the chaos of daily life. The property is accessed via a beautiful bridge that leads to the private and lush meadow with views of Sheep Mountain and the peaks of the Absaroka Range. Convenient access to hiking and riding trails, the Yellowstone & Boulder rivers and the charming towns of Livingston and Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park.
The acreage is a magnet to wildlife with its varied terrain of lush creek bottom, an abundance of mature trees, wetlands, natural springs, and the bluff to the East. Locals consider this sub-irrigated pasture to be some of the finest in the area. Being surrounded on 2 sides by land held in conservation easement limits the development of those adjoining properties, which is an added benefit for the new owner.
Since 2006 the owners have dedicated themselves to the transformation of the 40’s homestead into what is now an amazing and pristine haven where one may enjoy the peace and harmony of Mission Creek, fly fishing, wildlife viewing, hunting, horseback riding and hiking.
The prairie style ranch house is elegant yet extremely comfortable. Beautifully appointed with 3 bedroom suites (each with its own bath), tile and furniture grade walnut flooring, birdcage style kitchen with commercial appliances, custom cabinetry throughout, Weather-shield doors, dormers and windows which allow maximum natural light as well as energy benefits. The comfortable wrap around covered porch creates an inviting outdoor living/dining/relaxing area complete with outdoor gas fireplace framed with rock, nestled near the beautiful creek.
A lush riparian area with natural springs along the northern boundary of the property may support the development of a large pond.
