Description

MOTIVATED SELLER dropped asking price by $3,000 on adjoining acreages in prime deer/elk country in time for the nearly 3-month archery/rifle big game seasons. 10-acre Lot 396 has breathtaking views from its SE corner & relatively flat building site with incomparable seclusion, ideal for building that getaway cabin. Elevation of 5465' means access would be seasonal via ATV-4x4-snowmobile using Lightning Ridge Trail. Cool summer breezes, bountiful wildlife (pictured) make this a most desirable property at about one hundredth of price per acre compared to nearby Gallatin Valley & Bozeman. Retired FWP biologist says 750 head of elk reside in the area, not counting migrants. Seller wants cash, so buyer should have some assets to use as collateral for a bank loan to pay seller with cash. Electricity is via solar, wind, propane, generator or a combo. Rainwater collection system off of a cabin roof would be a least expensive way to go. Owner says there is a wet spot in SE quadrant where moose have been. PUBLIC LANDS lie 1.5 mi NE and SW; PUBLIC RIVER LANDS are 8 mi drive where entire river can be fished legally, or where one may watch migratory waterfowl or upland game birds being chased by eagles. Montana has a little known regulation called "non-qualified Ag land" such that if connected acreages add up to 20+ acres, property tax per 20 acres is about the same as for 10 acres; accordingly, as of June 2023 Lot 398-399 with a well is for sale searching Realtor.com with #378991 & Lot 400 is for sale searching with #374664. As of June 2023 access to upper northwest corner via Skyline Road is marginally possible in a 4x4 due to very deep, washed out ruts so alternate route of Pole Gulch Rd, to Spring Valley Rd, to Skyline Rd, to Lightning Ridge Trl is recommended. To generally navigate there, Buyer/Realtor may buy a 3'x4' black & white map of Ponderosa Pines for about $8 at Selby's Bozeman, UPS Store Belgrade, or Main St Office Three Forks if reminded that they were given a digital file of it by this listing Broker/Surveyor-Mapper. The latter recovered & flagged 3 of the 4 property corner monuments, & observed GPS coordinates on them, to be viewed amongst pictures. Conifer timber cover has been burnt by a wildfire covering this 10 acres, State forester estimates 10 years for regeneration Distance to I-90 is 40 min, to international airport is about 60 min away.
