Hall and Hall’s Choteau Mountain Ranch featured as The Wall Street Journal’s House of the DayPosted by Adam on Jan 27, 2011 in News, Recreational Real Estate | Comments Off
The Wall Street Journal features Choteau Mountain Ranch, listed by Hall and Hall at $10.995 million, as its House of the Day. This 8,540-acre Montana ranch for sale is tucked away at the base of the mountains, where snowcapped peaks top off the gorgeous setting.
The 5,400-square-foot house on the ranch was completed in 2002 by the current owners, Kip and Odette Mortenson, who spent years farming and ranching in West Virginia. In 2000, they bought the Choteau Mountain Ranch and began the design and construction of the two-story house, which features fireplaces and solar panels. Wherever possible, they used local materials to build the three-bedroom, three-bathroom house. As for the land, the Mortensons spent their time producing certified organic cows.
This Rocky Mountain property also includes two guest cabins, a modern indoor riding arena and stable, and a 3,750-square-foot shop.
The Wall Street Journal’s Juliet Chung writes:
Mr. Mortenson says he will miss the land and the animals, including antelope, elk, grizzly bears, black bears and deer. “The geography is just unbelievable. It just takes your breath away,” he says.
This ranch on the Rocky Mountain Front is located 17 miles from Choteau, Montana, on a paved road.
