SINGLE FAMILY, RANCH - Swan Valley, MT
The Swan River Basin holds more surface water than any other watershed in Montana, with 16% of its 410,000 acres characterized as river, stream, pot hole, pond, lake, marsh, or wetland. 93% of the basin is now public land, forever protected (google "The Montana Legacy Project), and is at the heart of one of the last remaining undeveloped and intact ecosystems in the world (google "Crown of the Continent Ecosystem"). In fact, no plant or animal has become extinct in this ecosystem in the last 200 years. People who are lucky enough to live here are, well, lucky enough. They enjoy exceptional mountain scenery, clean air & water, abundant wildlife, incredible fishing on the Swan River, and unlimited four-season outdoor recreation opportunities. This 69 acre property boasts the confluence of Jim Creek and the Swan River, creating a superb cold water habitat for bull, cutthroat, rainbow and brook trout. The adjacent meadows and forest are home to grizzly & black bears, mountain lions, eagles, turkeys, elk, and zillions of deer. On the ridge above, overlooking it all, is a very comfortable ranch style home, a new 4-stall car and RV garage with a 900 square foot guest quarters, and an assortment of outbildings. Of historical significance, this is the exact spot where Brad Pitt perfected his fly fishing technique in preparation for filming "A River Runs Through It". Few places on earth offer so many natural resource and recreation amenities all in one place. Even fewer offer the opportunity for private land ownership securely embedded within a much larger forever protected and intact ecosystem. This is the stuff that Montana Family Legacy Homes are made of. You should see it!
