Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, just 3 miles east of the historic town of Stevensville, The Circle L Ranch awaits. The 244+/- acre property is situated in a peaceful, pristine and private setting, offering seclusion and panoramic vistas of the Bitterroot and Sapphire mountains.The ranch has been meticulously developed by the Laursen's. Currently operating as the premier hay ranch in the valley, producing up to 1,000 tons of quality grass hay per year. The productive, well irrigated land can easily be converted to a cattle, horse or recreation ranch, if one desires. The aspen groves, pond and three creeks that meander through the pastures create a landscape to be enjoyed by family and friends for a lifetime. Enter the artfully designed main ranch house and you are immediately surrounded by warmth, comfort and beauty. This is a true Western Montana style home with natural stone, gas log fireplaces in the great room and master bedroom. You will find unique and distinctive architectural details inside and out.
Situated across from the home the equestrian facility offers a charming, one bedroom , one bonus room guest apartment over the finished and heated 3-stall barn with pipe turnouts, supply room, office, wash station, half bath and laundry. Plus, a 1260 SF area for hay and trailer storage, paddock with 12x24 run-in shed, 60 ft. round pen and 100x200 arena complete the set up.
Six additional outbuildings support the operation of the ranch. Including the 10,000 SF multi-functional heated shop which houses equipment, metal and wood working rooms and another well-appointed guest quarters. Plus, a Quonset building, 2 large hay barns, and 3-sided equipment storage building. All entrances to the buildings face east to avoid snow accumulation in winter for easy access.
The total living space on the property is 3,960 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, ensuring plenty of room and privacy for everyone.
