Very unique vertical log cabin that is located high on Boot Hill above historic Virginia City, Montana.  This 2 bedroom (current owner only uses one room in the loft as a bedroom, the second bedroom is also used for laundry/storage and has converted the downstairs bedroom into a family room) 1 bath home is on 1.295 acres (Lots 1-12 of Block 120) bordering the Town of Virginia City and State Ground on two sides giving you even more privacy and serenity.  The land slopes away from the house giving you unobstructed views of the valley and surrounding mountains.  Recently remodeled (2020-2022) you will be pleased to find newer appliances (except for the dishwasher), new exxtermor electric panel, new drain pipes, new bathroom commode and lots of new designer touches including new quartz counter tops in the kitchen.   The cabin is heated by electric baseboard but there is a great propane rock fireplace and a wood stove in the living room that provides both a central focal point and second/third heat sources.  There is a dry miners cabin (with some TLC it could be an awsome guest cottage) below and a one car + storage on the same level as the cabin.  You can access the main living area from the east side or you can access the upstairs from the west side as the cabin is built into a hill.  Enjoy the flowering perrenials from the new patio or swing on the deck as you enjoy the beautiful mountain views.  The one car garage can be used for your vehicle, boat or addiional storage.  All of this is located just minutes from the wooden boardwalks of the State owned gold treasure that was once our first Territoral Capital of Montana.  Not a lot has changed in this small community since the late 1800s and  you can still hop the stage coach, antique fire truck or climb onto the train heading west to pan for gold.  If you are looking for the perfect get-away, opportunity for short term rental (furnishings may be purchased by private treaty to create turn-key) or your new personal home located in the heart of recreational Montana then don't miss checking this one out.  In Montana you don't just buy a purchase a new lifestyle.  Create yours today!!
