This is a 35.46 acre tract of land just South of Helena Montana. It is less than 5 minutes from the interstate, but still offers plenty of seclusion. The South Hills area offers the benefit of being minutes away from Helena, but this property is located in Jefferson County where property taxes are typically much lower. Looking out from the property there are stunning views in every direction. To the South and to the East, you have stunning views of Big Belt Mountains, the Boulder Hills and Elkhorn Mountains, to the North you look over the city of Helena and beyond to the Sleeping Giant Wilderness Area, and to the west to the Continental divide of the Rockies.
The covenants and restrictions of this property allows for subdividing the property in 10 acre lots, however the HOA has granted some exceptions to this rule on a case-by-case basis. There are several excellent building sites to choose from to make the most efficient use of the land.
Helena is the state capital of Montana and was founded during a gold rush in late 1864.
