This unique opportunity has appeal at both ends of the spectrum. An owner who desires the breathing room and exclusivity of a large private retreat on the doorstep of a vibrant Rocky Mountain city will find nothing else quite like this. Meanwhile, a developer will enjoy a blank canvas upon which a comprehensive development plan can be executed.
This large property is available for purchase for the first time in decades. There are over 105 highly developable acres with a gentle topography and expansive views in all directions. It is adjacent to all services and is subject to an array of zoning including high density housing. Although it is offered for sale only as a single transaction, a new owner will have seven legal parcels with six zoning designations, providing immediate flexibility to use some of the property as a hideaway, while developing part or all of it. No matter how it is used, the property enjoys all the amenities of the city, plus easy access to recreation on the new Mt. Dean Stone recreational area established by Five Valleys Land Trust and partners.
Existing improvements located on their own separate parcel include a six bedroom six-and-one-half bath home with over 5,700 square feet on the main floor and a two bedroom, one bath guest home with 1,850+ square feet on both the main floor and basement. The landscaping around the home is healthy and diverse and has been meticulously cared for over the years by the current owner. The unobstructed views from this property include the entire Missoula valley with Lolo Peak dominating the view to the southwest.
Owner’s Home - 5,700+ sq. FT.
Guest House - 1,850+ sq. FT.
Hillview is perhaps the most uniquely developable property in western Montana. It is adjacent to services, zoned for a variety of housing configurations and is targeted for development by Missoula’s growth plan. The property has seven legal parcels with six zoning designations ranging from small lot housing to high density multi-family apartments as well as a small commercial area. All but 40+ acres are located within Missoula’s city limits. A comprehensive development with uses ranging from workforce housing to exclusive homes will benefit from city amenities, views, open spaces and miles of nearby recreational trails being established by Five Valleys Land Trust with their partners in the Mt. Dean Stone project.

Following is a Montana law required disclosure.
UNDERSTANDING WHOM REAL ESTATE AGENTS REPRESENT
Montana law requires that BUYER’s and SELLER’s be advised about the different types of agency relationships available to them (MCA § 37-51-102 & 37-51-321). A real estate agent is qualified to advise only on real estate matters. As the client or as the customer, please be advised that you have the option of hiring outside professional services on your own behalf (legal and tax counsel, home or building inspectors, accountant, environmental inspectors, range management or agricultural advisors, etc.) at any time during the course of a transaction to obtain additional information to make an informed decision. Each and every agent has obligations to each other party to a transaction no matter whom the agent represents. The various relationships are as follows:
SELLER's Agent: exclusively represents the SELLER (or landlord). This agency relationship is created when a listing is signed by a SELLER/owner and a real estate licensee. The SELLER's agent represents the SELLER only, and works toward securing an offer in the best interest of the SELLER. The SELLER agent still has obligations to the BUYER as enumerated herein.
BUYER's Agent: exclusively represents the BUYER (or tenant). This agency relationship is created when a BUYER signs a written BUYER-broker agreement with a real estate licensee. The BUYER agent represents the BUYER only, and works towards securing a transaction under the terms and conditions established by the BUYER and in the best interest of the BUYER. The BUYER agent has obligations to the SELLER as enumerated herein.
Dual Agent: does not represent the interests of either the BUYER or SELLER exclusively. This agency relationship is created when an agent is the SELLER's agent (or subagent) and enters into a BUYER-broker agreement with the BUYER. This relationship must receive full informed consent by all parties before a "dual-agency" relationship can exist. The "dual agent" does not work exclusively for the SELLER or the BUYER but works for both parties in securing a conclusion to the transaction. If you want an agent to represent you exclusively, do not sign the "Dual Agency" Disclosure and Consent" form.
Statutory Broker: is a licensee who assists one or more of the parties in a transaction, but does not represent any party as an agent. A licensee is presumed to be acting as a “statutory broker” unless they have entered into a listing agreement with the SELLER, a BUYER-broker agreement with the BUYER, or a dual agency agreement with all parties.
In-House SELLER Agent Designate: is a licensee designated by the broker- owner/manager (of the real estate brokerage) to be the exclusive agent for the SELLER for a specific transaction in which the brokerage has the property listed and the BUYER is working directly through the same brokerage also. This agent may not act on behalf of any other member of the transaction and works for the benefit of the SELLER, but still is obligated to the BUYER as any SELLER's agent would be.
In-House BUYER Agent Designate: is a licensee designated by the broker- owner/manager (of the real estate brokerage) to be the exclusive agent for the BUYER for a specific transaction in which the brokerage has the property listed and the BUYER is working directly through the same brokerage also. This agent may not act on behalf of any other member of the transaction and works for the benefit of the BUYER, but still obligated to the SELLER as any BUYER's agent would be.
Subagent: is an agent of the licensee already acting as an agent for either the SELLER or BUYER. A "SELLER agent" can offer "subagency" to an agent to act on his behalf to show the property and solicit offers from BUYER’s. A "BUYER agent can offer "subagency" to an agent to act on his behalf to locate and secure certain property meeting the BUYER's criteria.
_____ of Hall and Hall is the exclusive agent of the Seller.
