Historic homes you can own in the Missoula and western Montana area
Just two blocks from the main entrance to the University of Montana and on one of the neighborhood’s most prestigious streets, you’ll find a one-of-a-kind estate featuring not one, but two impressive residences. Welcome to 400 and 402 University Street. 400 University Avenue is a classic 1910 brick home located on a corner lot, which has been completely renovated. The 2021 restoration retains early 1900s architectural details but makes the house a truly modern living space. Think open and simple design and fixtures. Think new. Think historically. Think beautiful. The restoration followed professional architectural plans that included moving the original staircase to open the corridor on the main floor, adding new bathrooms, a small kitchen, eye-catching windows, and more. You won’t find a more modern flow and an interior design that also maintains a classic craftsman feel. The new double garage with accessory dwelling unit (ADU) adds many options for future owners of this property. As you walk through the front door onto the more than 1,700-square-foot main floor, you step into an open hallway to both the living room and dining room. From the dining room, you move through a five-foot opening (which can be closed with a set of double pocket doors) into a brand-new kitchen featuring large east-facing windows, stainless appliances, an abundance of custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and Marmoleum flooring. Two nice sized bedrooms on the main floor feature beautiful wood trim and ample closet space. One bathroom with a stepless shower and a half bath complete the main floor living space. Under stairs storage is a plus. Finally, the new laundry/mudroom addition is located at the back of the house away from the kitchen, and leads to a back entry. The upper level features a spacious bedroom suite with full bath/shower bath, plus an additional room/office, seating area and under-eaves storage areas. The 1,697 square foot unfinished basement has mechanicals and offers plenty of potential maybe a wine cellar, sauna, home gym or whatever you choose. The current use is as storage space. In addition to new sewer and water lines and connections, all mechanical appliances – plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and appliances – were installed new in 2021. The seller provides a recent independent home inspection, which confirms the excellent condition of the home and its mechanical systems. Outside, a stunning wrap-around porch facing University and Hilda Avenues invites you to relax and chat with friends and neighbors. It offers an outdoor living room and entertaining space. Between the house and garage/ADU is a stamped concrete patio that provides a private area for BBQs and more. 402 University Avenue is a brand new, beautifully appointed, 592 square foot, one bedroom, one bathroom accessory dwelling unit located above a 713 square foot detached double garage. The finished heated garage can serve either the main house, an ADU, or both. Additional off-street parking adjacent to the alley and garage allows room for two additional vehicles. (Rare and nice to have 4 off-street parking spaces in a U-District!) DVG Architecture plans available upon request. Koach Construction, LLC did a fantastic job of bringing these architectural plans to life. Erin Easton, Divine Design, provided interior design touches. There are high ceilings and quality finishes in both homes. The house is wired for security cameras. Wiring also offers shared internet access for residents, if desired. This property has been intentionally designed to be the perfect home for aging in place. See the comprehensive list of improvements in the associated documentation. Bonus: Seller is willing to pay up to $50,000 ($Fifty Thousand USD) to cover purchase/closing costs at the interest rate on the buyer’s loan. You can walk, bike or use public transportation everywhere from the property. Not only is this location located in the heart of Missoula, steps from campus, but it is also convenient to downtown, the Clark Fork River, hiking trails, shopping, bakeries, Hip Strip restaurants, coffee shops, brewpubs, medical facilities, schools, churches, and all the amenities our great city has to offer. Enjoy the online tour, but a virtual viewing in person, ‘live’ or ‘real time’ will be the best way to fully appreciate this property. Make an appointment to see 400 and 402 University Avenue soon. You’ll be glad you did.
