To say Four Creeks is 86 acres with a 3,900 plus square foot farmhouse located in the Rocky Mountains, 16 miles from Bozeman would be true but miss the point. It is really beauty, serenity, nature, outdoor life, community, peace, and privacy in a world apart from the world. Four Creeks lies on the confluence of the streams that form the heart of historic Springhill Community at the foot of the Bridger range. Ross and Jones Creeks, Truman Gulch and Dry Fork, along with a large farm pond, countless springs, lush pasture and certified organic hayfields provide a rich and varied wildlife corridor. The Prairie-style farmhouse is the center of the wheel from which radiates the land and its features and offerings. It is brand-old, built new in 1993 with pains taken for authenticity. The standards were high in design, materials and craftsmanship, from Aga and Tulikivi stoves in the kitchen to Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass door panels to 2 thick Southern yellow pine floors. There are four bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths plus a 2,400 sq. ft. basement, much of it finished, and a traditional dairy barn with a finished loft studio and half bath. There are always whitetails grazing, usually in sight of the house. Moose, black bear, elk, mountain lions, bald eagles, wild turkeys, sandhill cranes, geese, ducks, pheasant, blue herons and kingfishers are common sightings. Pristine views of the nearby mountains and complete privacy are protected by the best zoning district in the county. Stands of hundred-year-old fir trees, lush wetlands and groves of aspens abound. The mixture of gentle hills and level ground makes this a uniquely livable spot. Its cooler when the valley gets hot because of water and shade, with enough flat ground to ride horses in the summer and cross-country ski in the winter. A nineteenth century, one-room schoolhouse is still in operation, and an historic church has held meetings for a local womens club for over a hundred years, knitting together a diverse community of people, from ranchers and retirees to artists and doctors. Its the kind of place you never want to leave, even though town is just minutes away. The one- acre pond is inhabited by a wild population of browns, rainbows and brook trout that have been part of the watershed for generations. Its a great place for broomball and ice skating parties in the winter, and in the summer its the spot for kids water play, family celebrations, or just a great place to float and read a book in peace. Four Creeks is the incomparable blending of pastoral and mountain views, wildlife, classic architecture, privacy, community and access to town.

“Most brokers have a strong sense of independence, so brokerages work around that, but Hall and Hall is not about the one working alone—their strength and longevity is built on the group, on the family,” explains Tyler Jacobs. “It’s the basic fundamentals and traditional values that we’ve thrived on since the company was founded back in 1946.”
Our Hall and Hall broker, Randy Shelton, kept us in the loop as though it were. Our sale hinged on that of larger surrounding parcels, and when an initial offer fell through, Randy went back to the drawing board and found a suitable buyer who shared our values. That meant a lot to us, as our property had been in the family for more than 100 years.
From the first time I walked through the door, I sensed Hall and Hall’s highest goals were to understand who I was and build a relationship, to understand what made my property special, and to find the buyer. Their discipline and focus was apparent. Throughout the entire process, their approach towards reality was different from the experiences I have had previously. Genuine would be the word I would use to describe everyone at Hall and Hall.
I interviewed 4 agents and selected Hall and Hall because of the agency’s reputation for expertise in high end ranch property and global marketing. I had the pleasure of working with Tim Murphy on the sale of a family property in the Paradise Valley, Montana. We believe he represented our family interests well and contributed to the integrity of the property by joining together buyer and seller and a shared love for this special place in our lives.
Bill McDavid was an outstanding and very patient partner in this sale. His expertise in the market and marketing of the property was excellent. I would use him again in a heartbeat to either buy or sell a ranch property.
“Guns, bear spray and handsaws: These aren’t the tools of your average luxury real-estate agent. But ranch brokers like Mr. Murphy, a Bozeman-based partner at Hall & Hall, occupy a unique and increasingly challenging niche in the world of multimillion-dollar property.”
“When it was time to invest in a ranch for our family, we knew we needed to work with Hall and Hall. The expertise is unsurpassed.”
In 1988, Joel Leadbetter became a partner at Hall and Hall where he has been instrumental in completing complicated, high-profile deals such as the recent sale of Texas’ historic 512,000-acre Waggoner Ranch.
“The professionalism, preparation, and overall positive demeanor exhibited… were truly impressive… I have never before worked with a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and level-headed sales professional.”
I had been looking for the right property for several years and Elliott Davenport’s insight into the quail plantation market and his ability to think strategically was instrumental in helping me find our new place. Elliott was helpful on all technical aspects of contracting and due diligence. His post closing help with hiring and contractors made the process much easier as well.
I have purchased 4 ranches through Hall and Hall over the past 20 years, and there is simply no other team in the world like them. They have navigated complexity, professionally attended to every detail, operated with fairness and integrity, and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to me– whether representing me or the person on the other side of the deal.
Having been in our family for 70 years, selling Loveridge was a big decision for our family and we needed the right person to walk us through this process. Elliott Davenport has exceeded our expectations and represented our family very well through this sale. His depth of knowledge for the Red Hills, his critical thinking, intimate understanding of the market, and honest approach has made this process very pleasant and rewarding for us. Simply, he gets it and that has served us very well.
Positioning a high-end Luxury Farm in the market to maximize Seller value requires a special set of skills along with a true understanding of the audience. Having a National presence and the knowledge of how to market into that audience is key to executing a successful transaction. Elliott Davenport of Hall & Hall and his team of seasoned professionals are uniquely qualified to deliver these results. They exceeded our expectations! We could not be more thrilled with their performance.
“Having spent the last 18 months immersed in the process of (successfully) selling a large family sporting property, I can’t imagine going through it without Elliott Davenport. His incredible knowledge of the market, deep understanding of and appreciation for our land, thoughtful and resourceful guidance throughout the process, tenacious attention to detail, and his collaborative approach with our on-site land management staff was nothing short of invaluable. He came to us highly recommended by fellow landowner friends, and now it is easy to see why. I and my family would not hesitate to recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone.”
