The Horse Creek Ranch is a 635± acre property located along the western foothills of the Crazy Mountains in a private setting consisting of undulating terrain which includes forested hills, grassy meadows, grain fields, ponds and riparian corridors. Two forks of Horse Creek flow through the ranch providing water for irrigation. The ranch has been meticulously maintained with an acute focus on wildlife habitat, particularly upland birds. The focal point of the ranch is a 2,672± sq. ft. custom home built with reclaimed square logs and other materials found on site and in the area. The residence is unobtrusively sited in a stand of conifers and commands views over the property and to the expansive Shields River valley. Separate from the main residence is a horse barn, guest house and caretaker’s residence near the entrance to the ranch. The Shields Valley has become a very sought-after location in Montana as it retains its ranching character with larger holdings and attractive small towns like Wilsall, yet is less than an hour to skiing and the amenities offered by Livingston and Bozeman.
