Here it is!  Off-grid, 20 mostly flat, partially treed, usable acres, move-in ready, year around access, less than $100K! 12 miles from I-90 (Jens Exit) and 1 hour East of Missoula, 44 Pyrite Road is set up and ready for new owners!  A large 5th wheel trailer serves as the ‘base’ of the living area; it has extra exterior protection, and a lean to built on for extra storage.  Multiple backup power systems! A large woodstove is backed up by a solar system with two 24-V solar panels that feed into four 450 amp T-6 batteries.  This system is backed up with an onboard propane 3500W generator and an additional 9000 W generator.  This energy system creates a cozy, comfortable home, with fully functioning propane appliances (all kitchen, W/D, TV) and complete bathroom.  The trailer is complete with a septic system and running water.  Water is not a scarcity on this property!  A year around creek runs through the property.  A developed spring feeds into a 450 gal. cistern, providing ample domestic water.  3 other springs on the property have the potential to be, but are not, developed.  A greenhouse provides extended growing season times to enhance garden production for continuing self-sufficiency!  The barn is designed for a 2-horse shelter and hay storage, but could be used for many other livestock or storage needs. Approx. ¾ acre fenced corral, and 7 ac cleared and fenced with 3 strand barbless wire fencing.  (Hay storage area fenced with barbed wire to keep elk and deer out!)  One of the ‘priceless’ features of this property is: great neighbors on adjoining 20 ac tracts that want their privacy just like you, but are there to help when needed!  There is an informal, friendly road maintenance agreement, and neighbors with the equipment to plow snow. Access is good enough that several families in the general area live here year-around.  At $90,000.00, this property is a terrific opportunity for either vacation or year-around living, in a great hunting, fishing, hiking, recreating area, and near from public land.  Welcome to Western Montana!
