Tucked in, quite comfortably, within the heart of Missoula's beloved McCormick Park/Riverfront Historic District, the c. 1920, 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath residence located at 714 South 3rd Street West offers a fine example of early 20th Century Folk Victorian Architecture: Straight forward lines, covered front and side verandas, and scalloped detailing that adds visual interest and historical context. In 2019 the original garage was deconstructed, salvaging sheets of corrugated metal and well-aged lumber; elements that now adorn the exterior of the 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Contemporary Carriage House known as 712 S. 3rd Street W., whose base offers an impressive 2-Car, extended-bay, sheet-rocked and heated garage, along with two adjunct parking pads along the paved alleyway access. Throughout the main level of the Main House there is the original Pine Flooring that while painted over long ago, has recently evolved into a more natural Wood tone. The ceiling heights soar well beyond 10 feet, and several Leaded Glass Windows have been well- preserved; a creamy off-white, palette plays beautifully in the backdrop, complementing the the rich wood trim.
In recent years, the Country Kitchen was fully remodeled, adding gorgeous, Knotty Hickory Cabinetry, ample storage space and a suite of matching appliances.
Steps away, there's a room so festive and unique, hosting a marvelous, brick-accented wall and a free-standing Gas Stove, that it would adapt well for use as a cozy Dining Room or Home Library.
One of the two Master Bedroom Suites lies beyond the Kitchen/Dining region, and it features a myriad of windows, private access to a custom Tiled Bathroom and the convenience of Main Level Laundry facilities.
Located on the upper level, the Secondary Bedrooms are amply sized, each offering large closets and discreet views of Mount Sentinel and a Vintage Bathroom, replete with Old School Linoleum and a retro-fitted Claw Foot Tub/Shower serves this region.
The adjunct Master Bedroom Suite is impressive in scope, offering a Cathedral Ceiling, numerous windows, newly installed Oak Hardwood flooring and a private, custom tiled Master Bathroom and a Walk-In Closet.
All of the upper level bedrooms offer the most delightful views of the surrounding historic neighborhood and each space features distinctive views of Mount Sentinel, too!
The Carriage House residence was designed with an artisan's eye and constructed with the skilled hands of a craftsman's touch; its 720' of finished living space enlarged with with well-placed angles and alcoves, atypical ceiling heights, and multiple windows that are thoughtfully placed to capture discreet views of Mount Jumbo and the unique, residential skyline of the surrounding historic homes.
Light oak hardwood flooring flows fluidly throughout the open and airy floorplan, while the crisp white walls and black wrought iron railings pull the aesthetic together beautifully.
Offering full-sized amenities, the Kitchen does not scrimp on taste or appointments, featuring chopping block counter tops and plenty of room to both create and host the meals that will be shared with family and friends.
With no space wasted, the stacked Washer and Dryer are tucked into an alcove, seamlessly blending into the design schematic.
The first of the two bedrooms anchors the western edge of the residence, offering South and Western exposures and is just the right size.
A full-sized Bathroom can be found along the hallway, featuring luxe detailing with vertically installed wood-look tiles as the backdrop of the bathroom, while nautically-inspired light fixtures add a touch of elegance.
The Primary Bedroom, located at the opposite end of the living quarters, offers great views of Mount Jumbo and boasts an En Suite Bath, incorporating the Wood-Tile accents that work beautifully with the honeycomb tile at its base.
The rear yard is shared by both residences, reading more like a court yard as it is fully enclosed by tall, wood privacy fencing, ensuring a fantastic space to relax at your discretion and on your terms.
Taking unabashed advantage of the recent road work that took place on South Third West, the owners had a new water main and new sewer lines installed to both homes, taking away any concerns about antiquated infrastructure. Additionally, each property is separately metered for gas/electrical services, so the opportunity for an owner-occupied, income producing property is yours for the asking.
