This elegant home located on the Madison River was built to literally fit the river. The house is designed to look up river and down river. Even though the complete house is not accessible the lower level which is accessible is surrounded by decks on the river side and has 2000 square feet of living area. There are three bedrooms. The large bedroom has two queen beds, the master has it's own bathroom and a king bed. The smaller of the bedrooms also has it's own queen bed. There is a bathroom off the hall with a washer and dryer located on the opposite side of the hall. The dining room and kitchen area has a gas fired fire place and a view of the river that is just fantastic. All of the floors in the lower level are travertine stone that creates a wonderful warm and elegant feel. In the living room area there is a leather sofa and recliner. Also in the living room away from the hustle and bustle is a wide screen television with Direct TV's largest package ready to enjoy.
Animal Friends: Animal life is abundant in the Madison Valley with eagles year around and osprey that migrate north to raise their young in the summer. There are elk, moose, deer, ram horn sheep, antelope, lots of cows and small animals such as badgers, mountain goats and wolf. We had a badger that was living under our house for several years. We closed up the entrance that he had made and he has since moved on. We have two beaver dams within visual distance. Fishing is great right off the deck, along the banks of the river, in the river or from float trips that are available for recreation or advanced fly fishing trips.
This home is the perfect place to rest and read a book or go out and spend your energies doing the things you have dreamed about. During the summer when it gets a little warm you can walk out on the deck and feel the cool air as it flows up from the river. If you like to fish this is a renowned location. If you like side trips you could spend years seeing all of the things within driving distance. Or if you just want to kick back and enjoy yourself this is the place to do it.
