Philipsburg, Granite County, Montana
Sometimes we have the honor of bringing truly exceptional properties to market. Kokopelli Ranch is something special. The views of the Pintler Range and the East Fork Valley from this 400± acre, mountaintop retreat defy description as they need to be experienced. From the mottled light to the storms that swirl and wrap themselves around the Pintlers’ jagged peaks, the everchanging reel cradles you in some of the best views the Rocky Mountains have to offer. Located 20 minutes from the historic town of Philipsburg and surrounded by large ranches, the locale is ideal for those wanting remoteness yet desire a connection to a vibrant local community.
Perched like a crown, sitting 300± feet above East Fork Road, is the focal point of the property, a 7,700+ square foot custom large log home complete with 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, master suite, luxury kitchen, breakfast nook, formal dining, and attached oversized three-car garage. The home was painstakingly designed with timeless appointments to capture the viewshed from virtually every location in the home. To complement the residence, the operational improvements include a six-stall enclosed equipment shed and two-stall horse barn with vet/tack rooms, washing facilities, associated pens, and sheds.
Philipsburg, roughly 20 minutes to the northeast, anchors this rural community by providing basic services, boutique storefronts, as well as lodging and dining options. Unlike many “discovered” destinations, this vibrant town of around 900 has retained its historic western flair and local flavor. Philipsburg is home to the globally renowned Ranch at Rock Creek, a destination guest ranch on the banks of Rock Creek.
For outdoor adventurers, the area provides a host of activities. Skiers and snowboarders will marvel at Discovery’s 2,200 skiable acres, 215 inches of annual snowfall, and 2,388-foot vertical drop. For summer fun, Disco Bike Park is located 20 minutes away at the bottom of Discovery’s back side. The park offers 1,000-foot lift-served vertical terrain offering a mix of flow and technical style trails. For the sporting set, the region provides ample big game hunting and fishing opportunities, including Georgetown Lake and the famous Blue Ribbon fishery, Rock Creek.
The ranch is an easy hour-and-a-half drive from Missoula International Airport, offering daily flights from several hubs around the nation. Missoula, Montana’s second-largest city, is a full-service community of roughly 75,000 residents, home to the University of Montana, two regional medical facilities, a burgeoning tech industry, and a healthy art scene.
