Offerings on Old Pond Road in the heart of Missoula’s Rattlesnake Valley are rare.
Whether it’s due to the sound of Rattlesnake Creek during spring runoff, the excitement of living in a wildlife corridor, having a municipal park with tennis courts and an ice rink next door, or being near both downtown and the Rattlesnake Recreation area, folks on Old Pond Road just don’t seem to move away very often. This home was last available for sale in 1996 (25 years ago for those of you who still think that seems like yesterday!) The property is nearly 1.5 acres, with a side-channel of Rattlesnake Creek running through the back yard. Building between the side channel and the main channel of the creek is prevented by the flood plain elevation, creating a permanent and private sanctuary behind the home. Built in 1966, the 5 bed/3.5 bath ranch-style home retains much of its mid-century architectural appeal. The living room is accented by a wall of enormous windows, and a fireplace separating the living and dining areas. The kitchen is spacious, and has direct access to the massive deck. The large primary bedroom, with en suite bath and a walk-in closet, is located on the main level, with access to an additional, private deck. There are two additional bedrooms and an additional bathroom on the main level, as well as laundry and a half-bath. The full, daylight lower level is comprised of a generous family room featuring a wet-bar area and fireplace. There are two additional bedrooms on this level, as well as a bathroom and storage/utility rooms. Heat throughout the home is provided by efficient and comfortable hot water radiators. This is truly an iconic property, and one not to miss.
