Description for 21500 Old Highway 93 Florence, MT 59833
HORSE PROPERTY/CLOSE IN! The Westside of the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana has long held the mystique that has made people the World over fall in love with its magnificent beauty and majestic setting. Whether it's the craggy backdrop of its namesake mountains, or the undulating sub-alpine meadows that punctuate the landscape, this beloved corridor has been a coveted home owner destination since the Valley was settled.The Genesis of this Storybook Arts and Crafts inspired Bungalow is as storied as its prime setting. Once part of an orchard within a large ranch, in 1959 the previous owner caught the tail-end of the ''Kit Home'' boom, and the original, disassembled structure was brought by train to its current site, then constructed as a comfortable, nondescript Ranch-style abode For the next 35 years little changed with the residence, but the Mid-Western owner did transplant Elm Trees, the native Blue Spruce Pines continued to reach toward the Big Sky, as the Mountain Ash and Box Elders thrived in the fresh mountain air, and while the Crab Apple Tree in the South pasture burst into bloom each Spring, along with well established Lilac bushes that cradle the grounds. In 1994 the current and only second owner fell in love with the grounds, the setting, the views and the 20 minute commute into Missoula. What she didn't love was the ubiquitous facade of the Ranch-style abode. The next 12 years saw her consulting with local designers, poring over floor plans, and with rightful anticipation, the multiple award- winning contractor, Steve Loken, was tapped to transform the drawings into the dream, and in 2006, that dream came to life in the most marvelous fashion, all the while incorporating High Energy Efficiency and Low-Maintenance living! The builder's signature Arts and Crafts detailing is evident, with a broad, gabled roof line, wide eaves, and exposed rafters, while modern inclusions of Hardi-plank siding, a Cedar-style base, and custom, Cottage-Paned Clawson Windows, and tri-toned, muted jewel tones that all add to the charm of the residence. A glorious,beveled glass front door offers a most gracious introduction into this special offering, yielding to what's been dubbed "The Solarium", an aptly named space whose multiple windows perfectly frame the craggy peaks to the West, flooding this inviting room with abundant ambient light. Wide, wood-framed doorways lead to and from the Custom, Country Kitchen and to the well-proportioned Living Room.The chic addition of a Tiffany-style chandelier in the front room suggests comfortable dining quarters, and the "pass-through" framed windows allow the rooms to flow visually, seamlessly to one another. A vintage-inspired Marmoleum floor segues from the Solarium on into the spacious Kitchen, its colorful base complementing the gorgeous Oak Cabinetry, the deep drawers for cookware storage set beneath elongated, hard-surface counters, separate by a Gas Cooking Range, and a whimsical "Pie Window" that lets in discreet views of the driveway, announcing your guests before they cross the threshold and into a warm, welcoming hug. The Living Room is generous in scope, boasting multiple cottage-pane windows, a sleek adobe white palette to showcase your art work, Honey-hued wood-trimmed windows, wood accents, and original, 1 1/2" refinished Oak Hardwood floors that flow effortlessly down the hallway and into all three bedrooms. The front Bedroom, while modest in scale, is actually quite comfy and private and has served as multi-purpose creative space, but would also make for a fine Study or Home Office . The Primary Bedroom offers a custom Bayed Window Seat/Storage Bench, distinctive views of the Sapphire Mountains to the East and ample closet space. Across the hallway, a slightly smaller mirrored image awaits, with nearly identical appointments, but also including the thoughtful inclusion of a sound-proofed wall that separates this space from the adjacent hall bathroom. The sole Bathroom is an opulent study in Art Deco design, heated (electric) tiled floors, matching tiled accents, a pedestal sink and classic deco-inspired light fixtures. Located around the corner from the Kitchen, a stairwell leads to the partial, unfinished basement whose concise footprint belies its ability for expansive dry storage, and easy access to the mechanical components. The most delightful Laundry Room (Washer, Dryer and Upright Freezer included with the sale!) is conveniently located at the rear of the house, leading onto the Trex Deck and a few steps away from the double, detached Garage (Cement floors, Power, Work Benches and more!), and adjacent to a metal-clad structure that would make ideal Fifth-Wheel or RV storage. A classic Red Barn offers up a Loft for Hay Storage, a Tack Room, and even a well-hidden Root Cellar. The landscaped grounds of this 1.55 Acre offer low-maintenance, split-rail vinyl fencing, North and South pastures, and honestly just a lovely country setting to call home. For the past 24 years this exemplary offering has accorded a most enviable lifestyle, but it's time to pass the baton to the next generation of stewards. Dreams can and do come true, but it's up to you make the first move, and that move very well could find you living in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana!
