Montana's big sky covers a vast array of stunning landscapes. This property, at the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, is set in the midst of these iconic views and belongs to the unbelievable Crown of the Continent intact ecosystem. With the full panorama of the Swan Mountain Range as a backdrop, you'll experience serene beauty in every season as you look out over your own meadows, stream, pond and old-growth forest. And the modern log home is custom built in a classic style that's in harmony with this gorgeous site, carefully oriented per design to reveal stunning mountain and lake views from every interior vantage point. Just minutes from Seeley Lake, this 160-acre property remains secluded at the end of a private road, with access controlled by an automated electronic gate. There are no conservations easements, allowing buyers to further customize this mountain estate to fit their dreams. The house sits on a gentle hill that overlooks rolling meadows including 40 hay-producing acres. Year-round Bertha Creek runs through the meadows and empties into Rainy Lake at the edge of the property, where trout beckon and rise with every new hatch. Evergreens and larch border the meadows and climb the surrounding hills just below the Continental Divide. Watch for elk, deer, and moose, as well as turkeys and grouse, while eagles and osprey soar overhead. You may also see elusive lynx, mountain lions, and bears. Log homes are a rich tradition in Montana and the Rocky Mountain West, and this one offers both timeless style and all the modern comforts, including fast internet and video security. Built by Tim Hamilton in 2008 with the Neville Log Home system, it includes the vaulted ceilings and large diameter interior log beams and purlins for which Neville is known. The walls are constructed with the Swedish cope method that matches each log precisely to the one below for stability, strength and insulation. The stacked log walls and trusses have exterior and interior chinking, providing both a finished appearance and additional energy efficiency. Sierra Pacific glazed casement windows and doors frame stunning views from every room. Starting with a massive log porte-cochere leading to the grand foyer, this home provides all you need for welcoming guests to your magnificent home and for gracious family living. Floor-to-ceiling windows up to 25 feet high frame the Swan Range. These windows allow light to flood into the spacious living room, which is anchored by a double-sided gas fireplace. The five bedrooms and four baths make this home perfect for a large family or guests, and the huge master suite offers its own beautiful views and abundant eastern light. The gourmet kitchen is a natural gathering area for entertaining or cozy dinners with family. Choose between a casual seat at the central bar or a place at the dining table surrounded by large bay windows. Enjoy the stainless-steel Wolf kitchen appliances, granite counters, and maple cabinets that complement the log walls. After dinner, step onto the wide, comfortable deck for a look at the alpen glow on the Swan peaks as they catch the last rays of sunset. And don't forget to bring your binoculars for the wildlife show at twilight. This home also has an unfinished, walk-out basement and an attached, three-car garage. An additional heated garage connected to the basement is convenient for storing small ATVs, kayaks, yard equipment and other items. A second guest home, located about a quarter of a mile from the main home, is ideally suited to serve as a residence for a property caretaker. This hand-crafted log cabin has two bedrooms and one bath, a fully outfitted kitchen, loft, laundry closet, and wraparound deck, and is wired for phone, internet, and satellite TV. Adjacent to the log cabin you'll find an excellent area for horses, with a six-stall horse barn and corral. Ride horses down your private road and up into endless miles of roads and trails through the adjoining national forest. Horses and haying come with their own equipment, and this property includes a tool shed and
