LUXURY PROPERTY ON THE GALLATIN RIVER... PERFECT FOR GROUPS AND MEETINGS

Gallatin Gateway Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

5 Br, 5 Bath, 4300 Sf Estate... Luxury Living In The Country

For those of you who don't know the Bozeman area:

Bozeman is a wonderful blend of spectacular outdoor scenery and activities along with a vibrant artistic and cultural life. Three world-class ski areas-- big sky, moonlight basin, and bridger bowl are all within a 45-minute drive, and cross-country skiing exists at every turn. World-famous yellowstone national park is only 90 minutes away and is open year-round. Extraordinary fishing, hunting, horse-back riding, rafting, hiking, and animal-watching are in every direction. With its university base, the area draws a great variety of musical, dance, and performing arts venues. Downtown bozeman is an historic district filled with boutiques, galleries, and restaurants.

About our french country estate:

Our home is located 7 miles west of downtown bozeman, right next to a channel of the gallatin river, which is an internationally renowned trout-fishing stream. Nature abounds... Birds are everywhere in this riparian area, including eagles, hawks, owls, geese, ducks, cranes, woodpeckers, plus smaller birds. You'll see deer daily, and wild turkeys and badgers on occasion.

The house is spacious: 4300 sf plus a 3-car garage. As in any french country home, live revolves around the kitchen and great room. The pine floors, antiques, stone fireplace, and overhead pan rack convey an instant warmth and sense of escape. You'll enjoy two large islands and a spacious pantry. You have seating for 4 in the breakfast nook and for another three at the island. The kitchen is fully equipped with fine silverware, plates, and cooking utensils.

The large dining room with arched windows extends the european country feel, with antique pine furniture, dried flowers, and antique light fixtures. Eight people can dine comfortably at the table. If you want some real peace-and-quiet, escape to the den with a good book. The tall windows let in the early morning light or starlight at night.

The large master bedroom, with vaulted ceiling, brings the wild outdoors right into the room. From the antique bed, you'll look out across a field to the snow-capped bridger mountains, and if you leave the door open at night, you'll hear the stream gurgling behind the house. All our beds are truly 'heavenly', with compression foam, feather beds, and down comforters.

The large master bathroom, with granite countertops and cherry cabinets, has dual sinks and a large soaking tub with unobstructed views of the mountains. You have large his-and-hers walk-in closets and a tiled shower.

The other 3 bedrooms are all large, have ample closet-space, and have their own private and spacious full bathrooms. Views from the large windows of the surrounding natural areas and wildlife are phenomenal. A reminder... All beds are 'heavenly' equipped!

A bonus room above the garage has a bed, so can be used as a 5th bedroom. It is immediately adjacent to a bathroom upstairs. Not many homes have a party room with a 30 x 20 dance floor and wet bar... But this home does! You can hook up your ipod to the stereo with 4 bose speakers and kick up your heals!

The upstairs deck off the dance floor overlooks the river and wooded area behind the house, and the expansive 1st-floor patio spans the entire back side of the house, allowing plentiful space for barbecuing and outside dining.

The yard and garden are immaculate, with automatic sprinkler system. In the summer, the gardens and flower-boxes are overflowing with floral colors!

The large garage is heated and has three stalls, each with a remote opener.

Bozeman hot springs is only five minutes away... One of the finest upscale hot springs in the world. Enjoy any of the 9 pools, sauna, steam room, or exercise rooms.

You can drive to any of the major ski areas in the area, big sky, moonlight basin, or bridger bowl, in under 40 minutes, or you can catch the free ski shuttle to big sky and moonlight basin that is only 2 minutes away. There are 4 major fishing and guiding shops within 2 miles of the house.

House specifics:

Natural gas cooktop with 5 burners.

Dishwasher.

Large refrigerator/freezer.

Dual convection ovens with microwave.

Keurig coffeemaker.

Forced air heat with two air conditioners.

About Paul Larson

We are Suzy and Paul Larson. We built this house in 2008, with a dream of having a French-style home next to a river. The result exceeded our dreams.

Paul Larson purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why Paul Larson chose Gallatin Gateway

Everyone who comes here remarks at the warmth of the home. With its warm country hues and European accents, you feel at ease and relaxed. Paul's favorite escape is to put on his waders, grab his fishing rod, and walk out the back door to fishing paradise. The Gallatin river beckons, with its blue-green waters, moist scents, seclusion, and abundant wildlife.

We love seeing all the animals around the house. We have a resident pheasant family that brings a new brood every spring. Birds are everywhere-- geese, ducks, cranes, owls, woodpeckers, wild turkeys, bald eagles... The list is endless. We are also treated to 'bambi olympics' every year when the newborn fawns chase each other around the house. We are occasionally visited by wilder creatures also... Have seen badgers and yes, even a small black bear.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We are dancers, and so had the large dance floor built. It is perfect for parties, and the grandkids love coming over and romping around the large space. We use the bonus room as a music room, where our church worship team rehearses. You can use it as another bedroom or play some music yourself!

Graduation

  • 5 of 5
This was great for our family get together! The beds were very comfortable and plenty of room. We were able to cook our big family dinners and had a great graduation party. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. I hope this house will be available when my next daughter graduates.
