Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This exquisite “Sunset Place” home has its own boat dock and is in a premier location on the northeast lakeshore of Flathead Lake in northwestern Montana. You have magnificent views both south and west on Flathead Lake and views of westerly mountains. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, covers over 191 square miles and is one of the cleanest in the world. Plus this home is located within a short walking distance from downtown Bigfork (shopping, five-star restaurants, art galleries and playhouse theater), has a nearby public boat ramp and golf course (with numerous other golf courses in the Flathead Valley) and within an hour from Glacier National Park or Whitefish Mountain and Blacktail Mountain hiking and ski areas. Glacier International Airport is located within 45 minutes of this home.

“Sunset Place” is a newer, two-level 4,000 square foot, Montana-style home. There are stunning views of Flathead Lake and nearby mountains. Massive, “hand-scraped” Montana logs have been used in the vaulted ceiling and pillars, along with custom wood railings throughout the main living and stairway area.

This home is located in very serene neighborhood where the homes are very close in proximity to the lake and each other. Sunset place is a wonderful home to unplug, relax and enjoy the best this area has to offer. Respecting the quaintness of the neighborhood this should not be considered a party house or location. This home will wonderfully accommodate 6 adults and perhaps 2-3 children. We ask and the rental agreement strongly disallows large groups. Due to covenants, we cannot rent for less than two weeks.

The main floor includes an open, light entryway, kitchen, wet bar, dining area, living area, guest bathroom, laundry room, master bedroom and bathroom suite, two outdoor patios, natural gas barbecue and two single-car garages. The second level includes an open den/office area and two master bedroom/bathroom suites both with outdoor access to upper balcony patios.

The custom interior is elegantly furnished in Montana style and includes:

• Beautiful, over-sized soft leather and upholstered furniture in the living area where you can sit to enjoy the views, watch evening sunsets, watch a large variety of migrating birds, visit with friends, or curl up to watch TV or read a novel.

• Floor-to-ceiling natural stone gas fireplaces both in the living room and in the main level master bedroom suite.

• Alder wood floors on the main level with area carpets in the living and dining areas, plush carpet in the bedrooms and throughout the second floor.

• Three plush master bedroom suites each with king-size beds and direct access to outdoor patios.

• Tiled-floor bathrooms adjacent to each of the three master bedroom suites, each with granite countertops, double sinks, walk-in closets, over-sized tile showers that have custom European glass doors. Two of the bathrooms have deep soaking tubs.

• Granite countertops in the kitchen with tiled backsplashes, full size island/breakfast bar with built-in microwave, high-grade alder wood cabinets with under and over cabinet lighting, side-by-side Viking refrigerator/freezer doors, 6 burner Viking gas stainless steel stove, dishwasher, stainless double sink with instant-hot water, and pantry. The kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances, dishes, cookware, utensils, silverware; everything except the food.

• 42” plasma TV, along with DVD/stereo with CD player in the living area entertainment center, built-in stereo intercom (main level) and 32” plasma TV with DVD player in the main level master bedroom suite.

This home also has its own private boat dock that is only 20 steps from the patio.
