There is an RO system that filters all water to the kitchen sink and refrigerator. Next to the kitchen is the dining room. There are sliding glass windows that open to the back patio that’s concrete was poured in 2020. The patio is a great place to enjoy an outdoor meal and for entertaining. You will find a hot tub on the patio that will be included in the sale of the property. The owners keep the hot tub at 107° F, at this temperature it has only increased the power bill by about $25-35/month. Off the dining room area is a room that is currently set up as a living room but the options for this room are endless, it has a wood burning stove that is in working order to give it that warm, cozy feel. You can access the covered front porch from this room as well, it is one of the numerous lounging areas on this homesite, all of which are great for enjoying views, sunrises, and sunsets. There is a ceiling fan on the front porch to give you a light breeze when needed. The theatre room makes up the remaining square footage of the main floor, you can step down from either the kitchen or living room into this cozy area. There are two accent walls finished with barn wood from an old structure that used to stand on the property, leaving a touch of history within the home. The room is equipped with a projector system and screen, and is surrounded by modern, dimmable sconce light fixtures as well. Not only can you stream any of your favorite video streaming apps through the projector but its screen doubles as a great curtain to block out the sun/heat when needed. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bathroom. One of the bedrooms is the primary bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, you can access the bathroom from the hallway as well. All the bedrooms are spacious with great closet space and could easily fit king-sized beds. In the basement you will find a fourth bedroom, a bonus room, a ¾ bathroom, utility room, and crawl space. The bonus room is currently being used as an in-home gym and office but has previously been used as a bedroom or family room/lounging area. The crawlspace has a ton of great space for storing seasonal items. The utility room houses the forced air furnace, installed in 2006. The house is also equipped with central air conditioning, nice for those hot summer days. Both the furnace and AC are controlled by the Google Nest thermostat that you can control from your phone. The heat to the house is supplied by propane from Ezzie’s Wholesale in Malta, MT. They make propane deliveries to the area regularly; the propane tank is leased through Ezzie’s, and the new owner will have the option to continue to lease it if they choose.
In the back yard there is a concrete slab underneath a big shade tree that is currently set up with a firepit and chairs. There is a water spigot on top of the well that is great for watering your back lawn and/or putting out your firepits. The owners installed a new well pump in August of 2023. There are three outbuildings on the property. One is an 18’ x 28’ structure that was an old schoolhouse, it is not original to the property but a very neat feature that was moved in. The schoolhouse has electricity run to it and has an overhead garage door so you can park vehicles or equipment in it. There is a 20’ x 20’ below ground chicken coop with a chicken run. It is currently not hooked up to water or electricity but there is a water line nearby where you could install a spigot.
The acreage is made up of the 1-acre farm site, 159+/- acres of dry grazing that is currently split into three pastures. The home site is tastefully landscaped, complete with flowerboxes and established shade trees. The canal runs through the back pasture on the northeast corner of the property. There is an alleyway between the three pastures that leads to the 30’ x 58’ metal pole barn where livestock would have access to the self-waterer, there is also a spigot in one of the corrals as an additional water source. The land is currently being leased, the current lessee would be interested in continuing the lease or the new owner could take it over as they please. The acreage is perfect for the horse enthusiast or someone looking for a country home surrounded by beautiful views and wildlife. There is perimeter fencing in place. One other perk is the outdoor cement basketball court with permanent basketball hoop.
The property is located on a county road, county workers maintain the road, plow snow in the winter months, and it is convenient for school bus drop off and pick up. The current owner did a great job maintaining and renovating this property. Call us today to schedule a private showing of this beautiful move-in-ready home.
