Description

NOW SELLER FINANCING: 50% down, 7% interest, monthly payment around $500, lump sum payoff within 5 years, split all closing costs, & buyer pays for escrow account to track payments: 10-acre Lot 400 has breathtaking views from its SW corner & from a natural clearing adjacent to that with flat building sites providing incomparable seclusion, ideal for building that getaway cabin. Elevation of 5500' 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. 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. 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 with the same owner of record, 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 396 is for sale searching with #379009; see last picture here for configuration. Suggested route is Pole Gulch Rd, to Spring Valley Rd, to Skyline Rd, to Lightning Ridge Trail. 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 the SW & SE 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 in good weather.
