Riverfront Acreage, Hunting Property, Luxurious Log Home, a rare find in Northeastern Montana! 150+/- acres on the Milk River in Phillips County Montana, located between Malta and Saco, near Nelson Reservoir and Cole Ponds fishing area. The property has undergone a major transformation in the past 5 years and pride of ownership shows in every detail. The original property was purchased by the current owner in 2016 with a 1987 ranch style home in place on a partial, unfinished, daylight basement, overlooking several wheel line irrigated acres and the cottonwood lined banks of the Milk River. The owner replaced the windows in the original home and lived there while constructing a massive, 4,032+/- square foot Log Home, completed in 2019. The homes are on separate parcels and while this owner plans to sell the two together, a new owner could keep one and sell the other if they chose. The original home is on a 58+/- acre parcel accessed by county gravel road and comes with a 26’ x 50’ shop with concrete floor and power. This parcel has approximately 7+/- acres irrigated by wheel line with water rights from the Milk River. The second parcel measures approximately 90+/- acres and is accessed by its own private drive off the county gravel road. The home is 2 stories, constructed entirely of cedar logs transported from Idaho. The vaulted ceiling in the 2,016+/- square foot main floor spans the open concept kitchen, living and dining room before opening onto a covered deck with fantastic views of the Milk River Valley. 2 bedrooms on the main floor each have their own picture windows and views of the Milk River as well ensuite full baths, ceramic tile work, and solid wood trim and doors. A full guest bath, laundry room and separate canning/game kitchen finish out the first floor. The fully finished walk-out basement houses a second full kitchen and second laundry room as well as a family room and 2 large bedrooms, each with egress windows. The entire home is heated with propane fueled hot water boiler heat, piped through the concrete floors to create radiant hot water heated floors. The two floors can be separated completely from one another, creating 2 living spaces, each with their own entrance. 2 Reinke Pivots were installed in the fall of 2020, running their first complete year in 2021. Covering approximately 30+/- irrigated acres, water for the pivots is pumped from the Milk River and run to the pivots through underground lines. Another 7+/- acres in the river bend is irrigated with a sprinkler system, also new in 2020. All irrigated acres were replanted with a new stand of Alfalfa in 2020. The Milk River Valley and Saco area is known for its exceptional hunting, with whitetail and mule deer, pheasant, and turkeys common. The river bend along the entire southern border of the property stretches approximately 1.5+/- miles and provides cover for a variety of wildlife. Whether you are a hunter, or just like the idea of a private Montana setting with luxurious accommodations, this property is a must see.
