Main House (cont.)
The great room offers a quality kitchen with a gas stove and a separate Jenn-Air grill and griddle and a formal dining area. Warm up on chilly nights near the grand, full-length rock fireplace that will be an ideal spot for some quiet ambiance while dining or relaxing. The home's no-maintenance, impressive deck runs almost the entire way around, and especially showcases the lake side views with multiple areas for entertaining. The main floor laundry is easy to access, providing simple clean up after family fun.
The walk-out basement includes two generous bedrooms, a convenient bathroom, and a bonus space for games and movies. Doors on both ends provide easy flow to the outdoors and the perfect pathway to the boathouse and lake.
For those frequent guests that will no doubt be visiting your unique Montana lake home, there is an 800 sqft guest house completed in 2020. This loft offers a modern vibe with a large gathering space, kitchen, a spacious bedroom, quaint bathroom, and a deck with knock-out views! This space can be used as short-term rental, extra family room, or long-term living.
As amazing as the main house is, everyone will spend most of the endless Montana summer days down at the boat house. This well thought out space has 400 square feet of storage space for your water toys, your own gas pump, boat lift, and docks. The recently built boathouse boasts a gathering space with a wet bar, bathroom, sitting space, a glass window wall that opens to the beautiful deck looking out onto the water. The boathouse sits in a private cove with a fire pit and an outdoor shower. A short walk down your private lake front is a second large dock with a fire pit built in the middle. This dock is the perfect spot for other fun water activities with or without the boat, just swimming, diving, jumping, and playing in the water. What a fantastic place to do fireworks on the 4th of July or New Year's Eve!
The oversized, heated 3-car garage allows for tons of storage or tinkering. Along the well-maintained entrance road, you will also find multiple groomed parking areas for family and friends. The property entrance also provides an excellent road directly to the boathouse with ample room for parking and maneuvering the boat and trailers.
Hauser is one of three lakes within 20 minutes of Helena.
