Buy our house.

Buy this cute thing.

We want you to buy this roomy Missoula cottage (1,875 square feet) with open layout and excellent neighbors for $196,000. It’s a few blocks from the Bitterroot Spur Trail, two blocks from Franklin Elementary School and easy walking distance to the Good Food Store and Southgate Mall.  By car, it’s an equally quick drive to downtown and to stores on Reserve Street. The fenced backyard has two apple trees, a pear tree and a plum tree.

We think the backyard is one of the best aspects of our house.  We love it.

The front yard has several large lilac bushes, which are really more like trees.  It has a driveway, a one-car attached garage and a second, detached two-car garage.  The second garage could make an excellent shop.

The detached garage (as seen here through lambs' ears) is in the backyard, with an alley entrance.

The house has wood floors, arched doorways and large windows. The built-in cabinetry is a good example of the home’s charming and efficient use of space.

We used the "living room" as our dining room because it fit better.

The sunny kitchen has lots of counter space, roomy kitchen cabinets (including three lazy susans!) and a new energy-efficient dishwasher.

A well-insulated attic, new water heater and new energy-efficient furnace make for low heating bills.  We average $114 a month for gas and electric.  We replaced nearly all the windows and updated the wiring. The newly finished full basement (925 square feet) is cozy and has plenty of storage, a laundry room, an office and a bonus room with a built-in bookcase.  Our house has two bedrooms, one bath, and priced at $196,000.
