Imagine waking up to that view everyday! The Barkel House was built in 1928. It is located on .63 acres in Silver Star, Montana. That is one of the oldest towns in Montana and was established in 1869. I would undo some of the past renovations of the house if it were mine. There is a fully fenced yard with a bountiful apple and pear tree. There is a detached garage and a storage shed. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,100 square feet. $272,000

From the Zillow listing:


Silver Star is one of the oldest towns in Montana est. 1869. Early settlers picked the best waterfront properties. Original Barkel home. Lewis and Clark led their Voyage of Discovery right by here in 1805. Quiet neighborhood, on highway but speed limit in town is 35 mph. Moose seen in back, see photo. Jefferson River Valley has more deer, antelope and wildlife in the fall due to the quality hay being grown there. Lots of pears and apples in the fall. Jefferson River travels through one of Montana’s most picturesque valleys. This valley is known as the Banana Belt of Montana as the weather is far less severe than in other parts of the state. Located next door to River Rest Luxury Cabins in Madison County. Good neighbors.
