SOLD East Fork River Acreage - 4773 Highway 93, Darby
$695,000 1,800 sq. feet, 2 stories, 3 bed, 1.5 bath, 38 acres, double detached garage, built in 1925, MLS#: 21805013
Truly an original, old-time Montana property with 38+/- acres, older 2 story farm house (mostly original), rustic barn and outbuildings as well as approximately 500' of easily accessible/fish-able East Fork River frontage. The location is easily accessible year-round and just several miles south of Darby, one of the most desirable areas in Western Montana and not far from where portions of 'Yellowstone', a new tv series starring Kevin Costner, were filmed. The acreage is a mixture of flood irrigated pasture, fenced and cross-fenced, and riparian area/river bottom with Cottonwood trees, brush and freshwater sloughs fed by the river. Both the East Fork and West Fork of the Bitterroot River are accessible from the property's river frontage via high-water mark access. The farm house has been left mostly original with some recent interior painting done in the last year but could be restored or remodeled to your desire. It features a large kitchen, dining and living areas. There are also two additional preliminary septic approvals which would allow a new home to be built (subject to those approvals). A newer, detached double garage adds interior storage for vehicles or toys. The barn and outbuildings are older but functional and could be restored. The river frontage allows you to fish or float the East Fork, wade fishing either upstream or downstream to the main Bitterroot River. Put your raft or boat in on the property and float north as far as you want to go or put in upstream and float to the property. The property has also all types of wildlife including geese, ducks and Whitetail deer and elk on site a large part of the year and is located in Hunting District 240 with millions of acres of state and federal lands just minutes away. This listing is an unaltered piece of Montana with the best features that the state has to offer.
