Kokopelli Ranch, a vast hideaway of over 400 acres Montana It has been in the same hands for almost 30 years and has been on the market for $ 6.75 million.
Located 32 km from the historic town of Philipsburg, the property was listed last week by Halland Hall’s real estate partner Deke Tidwell.
“It’s a great home and a great place in a great environment,” Tidwell said. “It’s timeless.”
Sellers Liz and Richard Willett said they bought the property in 1994 and built a large, custom-built log dwelling over 7,700 square feet.
Named after Willett’s Native American god of fertility, the ranch is surrounded by other large ranches, including one owned by entertainer Kelly Clarkson.
“We placed the house from the top of Mount Warren so that it wouldn’t stand like a beacon,” Willett said. “It’s surrounded by landscapes — I hate the idea of ruining landscapes. Kokopelli Ranch complements that.”
Willett, an indigenous British, fell in love with Montana in the 1980s. “My husband first came here, and when he took me to East Folk Valley, he said it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen. I was an urban girl. I didn’t even have jeans when I came. “
Retired entrepreneur Willett and retired restaurant owner Willett spent three years designing and building a house made of logs recovered from a mountain fire in Oregon.
Located 300 feet above East Fork Road, this mansion offers dramatic views of the Pintra Mountains and East Fork Valley.
With 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 1 half bathroom, this house is designed for entertainment. In addition to a living room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a dining room with dramatic bay windows, there is a guest suite with a separate entrance, a laundry room, a bathroom and a sauna.
“I love cooking and the kitchen is one of my favorite spaces,” Willett said. “It works and is practical. We have lots of parties.”
Accommodation also includes a harness room, a veterinary room, a pen, a laundry station, a bathroom, and a two-storey barn with a washer and dryer.
“It’s a great riding country. You can ride it forever,” she said. “It’s right next to the wilderness. I went hiking with her friends.”
With a population of about 850, Philipsburg is home to the Rock Creek Ranch, a 19-style luxury resort.th-Century mansion. The Discovery Ski Area, which is about a 40-minute drive away, is also a popular attraction.
Willett in the 80’s is getting smaller and plans to spend more time with his grandchildren in France, Canada and Australia.
“Of course, I miss the ranch,” Willett said, adding that they and their horses would stay in nearby accommodation. “It’s a magical place to live.”
