A homestead of more than 6,000 acres originally included Ravenwood Ranch. Later, it was divided into 3 parcels, with a beautiful 168 acres remaining as the homestead. Ranch is now being offered with full Mountain scenery and unspoiled natural beauty. Wildlife, including Elk, Moose, Mule deer, Whitetail Deer, Antelope and numerous birds are drawn to the irrigated meadows and pristine meandering waters of Snowshoe Creek. Moose are even known to calve their young down in the lower pasture. With full water rights to Snowshoe creek, pastures are sub irrigated or off the irrigation ditches and the entire 168 acres have been planted and maintained by the same family for nearly 40 years. In addition to the one mile of privately owned Snowshoe creek, there are five natural springs throughout the property that do not freeze in the winter. Amazing fishery with predominantly German Brown Trout inhabits Snowshoe Creek.
The historic four-bedroom home was originally built in 1928 as the teacher's home. Later, a Merchant Marine added beautiful finishes including an Italian Fireplace and Leaded glass doors and entry way. Recent updates include added insulation, renovations to the Kitchen and bathroom as well as large double pane windows. The residence has a gas fireplace insert for cool winter nights and because of added insulation, stays cool in the summer. The rustic wood shingles are supported by a copper underlayment and a full unfinished concrete basement allows room for storage or the option for expansion. Outside is an older shop/garage with adjacent corrals with frost free faucets available in the barn, shed, and garden, and electricity is available in three outbuildings. A sizable garden has been producing thriving crops since 1993. Up until this year, the ranch was used to house horses and a small herd of Highland cows. Ideal location on a county road that is maintained during the winter for year-round access and only 30 Miles to Helena's Airport and 1.5hr to Missoula.
