Broker Property Comments

The Lake House - One of the largest waterfront properties in the best of Bigfork locations between downtown Bigfork and Eagle Bend Golf Club, with an extraordinary 653± feet of water frontage at the south end this 30+ acres. Flathead Lake views are enjoyed from all living areas where the southern exposure provides abundant natural sunlight. The Lake House includes 2,464 SF, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms in a fresh and lovely newly remodeled home with high ceilings upstairs and downstairs. There's a barn, bunkroom, shed, ponds, small bridge between the ponds, and it is fenced for horses. Property specifics: One of the most rare and enjoyable features of this property is the large acreage within the highly sought Bigfork community. The 30± acres includes about 10± acres above the high water line, and features other potential building sites, a 36' x 24' barn, outbuildings (shed is 11' x 11' and the "bunkhouse" is 10' x 16'), ponds, and areas for basketball, badminton, frisbee, or croquet games, or just soak in the sun while listening to your favorite music. The property is fenced for horses and this is a fabulous location to enjoy them. A multitude of wildlife enjoy the property including a fox pair with kits, numerous birds of all sorts, and dozens of deer. During the winter when the water recedes, there's a huge beach area to enjoy riding bikes or horses, hikes, bonfires, flying kites, or simple strolls to take in the beauty that surrounds you. In the summer at the lake, there's plenty of room to build a dock or entertaining areas. Pull out your kayaks, paddleboards or canoes and paddle up and down the shore enjoying the best that life has to offer! You'll discover the days last way past 9pm in the summertime here, and those late hours may well foster your favorite memories! The other most breathtaking feature of this property is the southern exposure enjoyed in this freshly remodeled lakefront-living style home that is bright with natural light in all living areas. All rooms have lake views, and the main level features a full width entertaining deck that is accessed from both the great room and the master suite. The master suite's walk-in closet is a whole other room, and the glorious soaking tub and shower will wrap you in luxury and entice you to never leave this private oasis! The kitchen/great room can host spectacular gatherings in addition to peaceful moments of solitude as you take in the Flathead Lake views before you. The complete remodel brought custom butcher block countertops, custom cabinetry, new Samsung appliances, new flooring, and so much more! The main level vaulted ceilings enhance the natural light of the extensive windows. On the entertaining deck you can enjoy panoramic lake views that stretch to the south end of the lake while enjoying morning peace or the evening sunsets. The lower level also enjoys high ceilings and an amazing amount of natural light. There is a large family room for entertaining as you so desire, along with three guest bedrooms, a guest bathroom, and the laundry room and utilities. (Utilities: city sewer, city water, gas, electric, and high speed internet is available.) Flathead Lake is renowned for crystal clear water, and it is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. While the lake is huge and never crowded, you will enjoy fishing, boating, skiing and swimming on what is surely one of the best lakes in the country! The water in the lake is lowered about 10' each winter to provide storage room for all of the spring melt from the snow in the mountains; the lake is generally close to full pool by the end of May each year. By the time the water is warm enough to jump in, you'll be out there on it with boats and floats! (The lake is currently higher than typically, and the pasture is more sub-irrigated than in a more normal year. You're apt to need boots on parts of the trail to the lake until the water level drops!) This magical property is situated within the charming community of Bigfork (pop. 5000+), which is home to art galleries, fabulous dining possibilities, quaint shops, and the Bigfork Summer Playhouse, which has been celebrated as one of the Northwest's finest repertory theaters for more than 50 years. All this is delightfully accompanied by the warmth and hospitality for which Montanans are known. Among other accolades, Bigfork has been voted as "One of the 50 Great Towns of the West" and designated as "One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns of the Nation" which is no surprise given the multitude of world class art galleries. An hour north you can revel in the glory and the majesty of Glacier National Park, known as the Crown of the Continent, and even closer you'll find the Glacier Park International Airport and all of the shopping and medical facilities of Kalispell. Two excellent ski resorts are within an hour's drive, and all of the incredible abundance of other outdoor recreation is also nearby, including a multitude of golf courses, rivers, hiking trails and smaller lakes.
