WELCOME TO ELK MEADOWS RANCH! This is truly a once in a lifetime ranch with an FAA and military licensed airstrip. The title is Elk Meadows FAA Designator 8MT4. The 2376+- square foot custom Montana home is beautifully handcrafted with architectural timber coverings, large timber beams, vaulted ceilings and windows showcasing 360 views of the Elkhorn Mountain Range, Confederate Gulch, the Big Belts & Canyon Ferry Reservoir. Imagine getting cozy while enjoying a fire in the majestic fireplace, or while soaking in the master suite's jacuzzi tub. In these unsettling times, this could be classified as an elaborate secure family compound. The unique 60.92+- acres has an extensive security system, with full independent solar "doomsday" contingency power. Hunting & fishing is very close by. The National Forest nearly borders the property of the east boundary, with many roads & trails to explore. There is extensive wildlife on & around the property, including deer, antelope, elk, moose, fox, mountain goats, & many other species. A fox family makes its home on Elk Meadows yearly. The planned architectural design matches that of an old Montana ranch homestead. This great compound was designed & constructed by the owner of a very large commercial/industrial construction company for his own home. The property may be classified rural remote. However, approximately the city of Bozeman is an hour & a half drive, with Helena being only fifty minutes. This provides the best of both worlds... rural tranquility, with city conveniences & medical care reasonably close by. MECHANICAL & STRUCTURAL - The primary residence is 2, 376 Sq feet, with a 936 sq foot basement. The home is 2X6 framed throughout, with another 2 1/2-inch structural layer of architectural timber covering, making for 8 1/2-inch-thick walls. The residence has overhanging porches on 3 sides with architectural steel reinforced stamped concrete decks. Insulation consists of a combination of fire-resistant foam & fiberglass batt insulation that keeps the home very comfortable through all seasons. Heating is forced air propane with an added large wood stove that will independently keep the residence warm during Montana's cold winters. The custom fireplace adds a backup heat source along with a gas heating stove. There is a fully lit & foam insulated 4-foot crawl space with controlled ventilations. - The large 7, 000+- sq ft shop is complete with separate living quarters. This shop is steel framed with heavy gage architectural steel, two colored siding & roofing. The engineered foundation is heavy weight bearing 4-foot stem walls with all building concrete slab floors being 5 to 6 inch thick with steel reinforcement. The living quarters insulation is a combination of fire-resistant foam & cellulose in walls & roof areas. All exposed electrical wiring & controls are encased in steel conduit & guarded control boxes matching commercial & industrial codes. The shop has industrial lighting & an overhead trolley crane. Truly too many features to list. - The residence has dual independent, completely separate, engineered electrical power systems. Full solar & grid tied. With a complete grid failure, the property owner can keep going for years utilizing the battery powered solar system. - All structures follow commercial & industrial building codes for very low maintenance & long-term sustainability. - The 1000 sq ft shop living quarters are very comfortable with many amenities complete with a full office. Included are a bathroom complete with a shower, washer/dryer, toilet, sink & water heater. The apartment/office has its own septic system & propane tank. A convenient kitchen area has all the needed hook ups for a stove, refrigerator & dishwasher. Internet covers the entire office & shop area. A cozy bedroom provides a quiet get away. The heating is provided by a propane forced air furnace. - The tack room, located within the shop, is approximately 14'X8', fully insulated with multiple inside
