A Montana Island Getaway - Bozeman
This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath vacation home is located on 3 acres at the end of a road--it's actually an island--so you will not see or hear a neighbor from a surrounding home. It's like your own personal 'island' in the middle of the country, as there is a major creek running through the property on one side and a seasonal creek on the other. BUT, you're not in the country. Only half a mile down the road is Main Street, which can take you in any direction. We're two minutes from Four Corners (gateway to fishing and skiing), five minutes to the first big grocery store, and ten minutes to either the University or Downtown. It's a special property. Less than 100 feet from the back door is the above-mentioned trout-filled creek that runs right through the property (400 feet of creek access just on the property).
The house is one of many levels. The first floor is the living room, with fireplace, television, stereo, and an unobstructed view of the Bridgers. There is also a guest bedroom with its own full bath, along with a half bath off the living room.
Walking downstairs takes you to the kitchen, where everything is provided. A small sitting area is to one side, while a dining area is to the other side. An air-conditioned (and heated) sun room offers more access to hanging out close to the kitchen. A washer and dryer are also featured. If you don't like eating inside, a wrap-around deck surrounds the house, complete with a grill hooked up to natural gas.
Walking down another level gets you the man cave. Television, stereo, and a separate bedroom and bathroom for privacy. There's also a wet bar area in the man cave to keep drinks cold if you don't feel like walking less than 10 stairs to the kitchen.
Upstairs is the master, with a steam shower in the bathroom. The room opens up to another deck that overlooks the property and the creek. Opening the screen door will allow the creek to lull you to sleep at night. This floor also features a den/office, that can also be used as a bedroom. Its concept is open--it overlooks the living room--but it is still an ample space.
Upstairs even more is a game room, which offers more things to do, more views, and a library of books, movies, and cds.
Outside is absolutely beautiful, and one of the major reasons we bought the place. The creek is nice, but there's also the deck around the house that overlooks it, a huge yard, a putting green, horseshoes, and a deck and gazebo right on the water.
