This home is part of a small 5 parcel HOA so it also has the shared benefits of pond access and trails to the US Forest Service. Covenants do not allow the futher subdivision of the surrounding land so the views will be as they are today forever! Access is on a paved two lane Montana road with a few neighbors above and below the lake. Area of high end homes and a few resort properties. Darby offers a grocery store, small medical clinic and home to the Darby rodeo. The "Yellowstone" TV series is filmed in this area because it is so very scenic and still not too developed. A perfect legacy property to share with family for years to come. Hunt, hike, fish, and explore and never see the same part of the mountains twice. Vastly private without being remote. Ask your agent for a copy of the Amenities List for this property as there are too many features to mention. A copy of Covenants are provided to MLS member agents as well as other associated documents. We look forward to helping you view this fine property.
