NOT the typical Montana McMansion!Four miles south of Bigfork on the east shore of Flathead Lake, sits this unique 7.423 acre sloping estate that includes 511.9 feet of Flathead Lakeshore. These grounds have been carefully cultivated, for over 30 years, with an exotic collection of plants from all over the world that flourish in our climate. A custom water feature and pond are tucked along the edge of a safe boat harbor and relaxing wooden deck. Above, sits the main home, a 50's contemporary design, with a full wall of glass and convenient wrap-around covered deck (with hot tub), providing dramatic views of the grounds and Lake.
