MLS 30015823 $1,690,000

Steeped in history and nestled at the base of the iconic Mount Helena trail system, this luxury residential condo is located in an area that can never be duplicated. “Last Chance Gulch” is truly the heart of Helena, Montana and prides itself on old-world historic homes, world class hiking/biking, restaurants, retail shops, galleries, museums, and breweries. The location of the property cannot be replicated, but nor can the quality of the build. The condo is located where two worlds collide: community and country. Head north from the property and within a block you can enjoy mainstream entertainment and all the amenities of Helena. Turn south, and you are in Montana wilderness. The South Hills Trail System has nearly 80 miles of trails for hiking and biking, and the Ridge Trail access begins behind the property. Park Avenue feeds straight into thousands and thousands of acres of National Forest where you can hunt, fish, or even pitch a tent and camp! This National Historic Registry property exudes old world charm combined with all of the modern amenities. Charles Hendrie opened Helena’s first iron foundry on this site before 1868. The property’s third owner, Benjamen K. Tatem, built this two-story residence circa 1875. Wide eaves, low hipped roof, and tall arched windows proclaim Italianate influences and accurately convey the original appearance of this well-preserved, coarse fieldstone home. His stamp can still be found on the lovely iron work gracing many of Helena’s nineteenth-century buildings. The updated kitchen was designed to be a modern nod to the historic character of the property while looking and feeling like a timeless elegant British kitchen but hidden away it has all the necessities and flexibility of modern kitchen featuring luxury Fisher Paykel appliances, quartz countertops and an oversized island. The cabinet color is a custom blend of vibrancy with British racing green to achieve to look in the space paired with the bespoke hardware that is all handmade and has a hand burnished hand applied finish to get to that perfect aged brass to match the look which extends to the rest of the hardware in the property. The large rebuilt wood framed windows allow for ample natural light while the roomy 10-foot ceilings create an open, spacious feel. The primary bedroom has its own bathroom with double sinks, walk-in shower, radiant floor heat, basketweave marble tile and spacious walk-in closet. New hot water baseboard heat, forced air A/C and the Navien on-demand hot water heater provide comfort throughout the home. The upper level has access to a treed courtyard and sense of privacy. A single car garage with a rooftop patio will be built in the spring and complete the desirable outdoor space.
