Riverhouse is a quintessential fishing retreat located along the banks of the fabled Yellowstone River in the central region of Paradise Valley, Montana. This 12-acre property was once the headquarters of Emigrant Peak Ranch, which still operates today. Built in the 1940's by a Chicago family who owned it for decades, the main house is constructed from many hardwoods imported from the Midwest region of the United States that embellish the interior. The house has been impeccably maintained and cherished in an era reminiscent of many of the masterpieces found in Yellowstone Park which is located 30 miles to the south. The house is complemented by a guest house that once served as a tack building, a small guest cabin and an old barn with a root cellar. The dwellings are perfectly appointed, and furnishings are included in the sale. A giant canopy of mature trees towers over the buildings providing shade, protection and privacy. A large fenced raised-bed garden is the perfect complement to the decadent flower beds and landscaping which garnish the property. One might argue that it took decades to perfect. The Yellowstone River is steps from the main house with Six Mile Creek coursing through the property joining the river and creating an idyllic seam for feeding trout. In addition to the river, views of Emigrant Peak, which is the iconic land feature of the region, are framed through towering cottonwoods east of the property. Riverhouse has served as a gathering place of families for generations and is awaiting those who follow.
