This Upper East Side property sits on a perch tucked away among the tall trees in its gorgeous, fully mature garden and yard. The home was built by contractor Kermit Mueller for his own family in 1973 and it has only had two other sets of owners since then. Mid-century architecture is evident in the vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams, arched doorways and windows that bring the great outdoors in. The layout lends itself beautifully to entertaining guests, with expansive views of the Helena Valley from outside and in. While the property sits on a quiet street and the home boasts privacy in every direction, it is just minutes from downtown, the Capitol, and the hospital. These aspects create a unique balance for a Helenan that wants a close proximity to town and the serenity of this landscape. The interior layout is expansive and offers the luxuries that are difficult to find in any home: both formal and informal dining areas, formal and informal living rooms, an attached three-car garage, a walk-out basement, and ample storage space throughout. (There is not just one, but two large coat closets–any Montanan knows this is a luxury!) The oversized primary bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, a second vanity sink, a large walk-in closet, and a laundry chute to the large laundry room downstairs. The main floor also includes a second bedroom, an office, and a full guest bathroom recently remodeled with cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and a backsplash resembling the silhouette of the Sleeping Giant. The kitchen was remodeled by Ed Sexton Construction and includes soft-close cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and lighting accents. The trex deck off the dining area provides access to the backyard, fenced vegetable garden, and impressive Valley views. The walk-out basement includes a third living room with a 1970s wet bar, making it ideal for gatherings with friends. You’ll also find three bedrooms, a remodeled bathroom with double sinks, a room with a work bench, plus a large storage room with built-in shelving. The exterior of the home features a low-maintenance clay tile roof and brick construction, multiple entertaining areas, a private well for irrigation, and mature trees and landscaping with the native species identified in the associated documents. All of these features create a relaxing setting that offers privacy, while keeping you close to everything you need. Other updates include two brand-new furnaces with thermostats for each floor. The beauty of this property is one to experience for yourself so schedule your showing or personal video tour today. Call Breena Buettner at 406-302-8257 or your real estate professional.
