Tucked away on a secluded hillside overlooking the pastoral Shields River Valley sits Big View Basin. One’s senses are immediately captivated by the stunning panoramic vistas of the majestic Crazy Mountains to the east and the Bridger and Bangtail Mountain Ranges to the west. Big View Basin consists of 156± private and scenic acres of surveyed land in the highly-desirable area of Southwest Montana. With close proximity to Livingston and Bozeman, Big View Basin is situated and priced to appeal to a buyer who is attracted to the peace and solitude of the Shields Valley yet also desires the culture and amenities of the nearby population centers.
The Property consists of varied terrain including gently sloping meadows, gullies, hillsides and dynamic rock formations. Predominantly covered with scattered sage and native grasses, the Property could easily support several saddle horses or a few head of cattle. A neighboring rancher has lightly grazed the Property with livestock over the past several years, promoting healthy native vegetation. Contained within the 156± acres are approximately 45 acres of land that has been farmed in past years. Several locations exist to construct a home with outbuildings and a secluded riding arena while retaining the commanding views of the nearby mountain ranges. With the personal touches of the new owner, there is potential to create something very special in a private, yet accessible locale. The Property and adjoining acreages are protected by restrictive covenants further safeguarding the land and owner’s investment. Additionally, with no existing structures on the Property and dependable access via a well-graveled road, the new owner has the flexibility to retain the entire acreage or create two separate parcels.
Big View Basin is in a fertile wildlife corridor and hosts abundant numbers of sage grouse, Hungarian partridge and other upland game bird species. A local herd of elk traverses through the Property in the fall as they descend out of the nearby Bangtail Mountain Range on their way to their winter range. The potential to develop a very private and well-located enclave will become evident upon inspecting the Property. Offered at $299,000, the Property is a very attractive option for the buyer seeking privacy and tremendous “Big Sky Country” views.
