Four Creeks

$4,950,000 Bozeman, MT 86± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

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.
