MLS #220063801137 River Road, Plains, 59859
Remarks: Two fireplaces glow putting off a warmth throughout this tri-leveled, 3-bedroom home that is cozied up right next to the Clark Fork River. With 1500' of water frontage out your back door, this property welcomes a buyer seeking a secluded and gorgeous setting to bring horses or cattle to graze upon the 20 acres of 60% alfalfa/40% grass mix. The hay can also be sold or rented for grazing for added income. New fencing surrounds the property with high deer fencing to protect the landscaped flower beds in the yard from the frequent visiting wildlife. This retreat in the mountains just outside of Plains offers up privacy with trees creating an enclosed haven some producing plums, cherries, and apples! The ranchette has a master bedroom with regal white French doors opening out to a private deck that provides wonderful views of the scenic location. The property also borders forest service land so hunting and recreating on the river will fill your free time for spectacular experiences. There are endless possibilities near the river including a potential ideal location for one to put in a dock for quick access to launch your fishing boat or floating raft. Enjoy the paved road that takes you all the way up the drive way keeping vehicles in excellent condition. This area is frequented by elk, bighorn sheep, white-tailed and mule deer, and wild turkeys. Just across the road is the Roundhorn Wildlife Management Area established to protect and conserve the habitat for the many bighorn sheep. It also serves as an access point to the bordering National Forest lands. If you dream about a beautiful property spanning out to provide seclusion and space, then you'll want to make that dream a reality so that you can start falling asleep to the sounds of the waters gently lapping at the shoreline and the quiet whispers of the forest at night. If you want a genuine Montana experience, the Plains area represents the beautiful mountain majesty well. In the 1907, the town was founded as Horse Plains due to locals wintering here and allowing their horses to feed on the grass. National Forest land covers much of the region providing over 2,500 miles of trails specifically in the Lolo National Forest. This valley is a popular spot to view bighorn sheep as there is a Koo-Koo-Sint Bighorn Sheep Viewing Site that provides six interpretive signs about the natural history of the sheep and their habitat. The Clark Fork River is one of the longest rivers in Montana meandering more than 280 miles paralleling I-90. There are many access points, and its diverse terrain makes certain that no two trips down its waters are the same. It originates in the Silver Bow Mountains with many tributaries contributing to its reputation as one of the most popular destinations for fly fishing in the United States. The river offers recreation such as floating, rafting, kayaking, river surfing in addition to its epic fishing. The best fishing waters are found between the origin and the confluence with the Flathead River near the Paradise-Plains area. Fish caught in these waters range in size but some can be from 14-20 inches. Species thriving here include the Clark Fork native Westslope Cutthroat and world class brown and rainbow trout as well as small mouth bass. Where the game is as big as the sky, Montana offers hunting like no other state can. This area has a spectacular bighorn sheep population. Whether it is bow or rifle that you are aiming with, big game ranges from moose, mountain goats, and elk to white-tailed and mule deer. There are also wild turkeys, mountain lions, and bears.
