The area is generally rolling topography broken by small streams and waterways sloping toward the Yellowstone River to the north.

Open living designed kitchen, dining and living area with awesome use of windows to capture evening sun and views galore. Two nice bedrooms and bath with no wasted space. The outdoor lifestyle continues with lifetime composition decking and stairs, rock garden and rock décor and plastic lined gravel walkways to accent nature. The walk out lower level or better yet drive out is a 3 car finished garage, large enough for storage and 4-wheelers with nice gravel based drive up area.
