Retreat at Basin Creek is the perfect blend of privacy, manageable acreage, beautiful views of the Highland Mountains and Basin Creek Valley, and very close proximity to amenities and Bert Mooney Airport. This 534± acre property is wildlife-filled, with multiple springs, a pond, and almost 1.5 miles of the nearly year-round Two Bit Creek. Over 1.7 miles of the property boundary borders thousands of acres of National Forest. Since it was homesteaded in 1910, the property has changed hands very few times. The improvements are outstanding, boasting quality workmanship and functional design. The modern four-bed, three-and-a-half-bath main home boasts 4,348± SF of upscale finishes and was intentionally placed to look out on views of Red Mountain. A summer guest cabin sits down by the creek with a pond just down the road. Although Retreat at Basin Creek is only 10± minutes from Butte and its airport, this area is some of the best elk habitat in southwest Montana. Elk, deer, and the occasional moose wander through the acreage, utilizing cover in the draws to move from the valley floor to higher elevations. The home is timeless, the views are remarkable, and the stillness is unbeatable.
