Missoula, Montana, 59801
Just two blocks from the University of Montana's main entrance and on the neighborhood's grandest street, you'll find a one-of-a-kind multi-dwelling property. Welcome to 400 and 402 University Avenue. 400 University Avenue: This 1910 classic brick home is on a corner lot, and it has been totally renovated. The 2021 restoration retains early 1900s architectural details but has established the home as a truly modern living space. Think open and simple layout and fixtures. Think new. Think historical. Think beautiful. The restoration followed professional architectural plans that included moving the original staircase to open up passage on the main floor and adding new bathrooms, a galley kitchen, eye-catching windows, and more. You won't find a more modern flow and interior design that also preserves a classic Craftsman feel. This property was intentionally designed/remodeled to be the perfect home for aging in place.
