The Sanders House is an oasis of refinement in the historic town of Virginia City, Montana. It was built in the 1860s and is reputedly the oldest frame-built home in the state. The 4-bedroom, 3-bath home has been lovingly maintained by its only four family owners and features hand-grained woodwork, wood floors, and cast hardware. The interior has been updated with modern amenities, including a custom kitchen with AGA appliances, bathrooms, and utility systems. Unique features include a beautiful stone sunroom with fireplace, and the old icehouse has been converted into a climate-controlled wine cellar. The two bedrooms on the main level share a bathroom, and the two upstairs bedrooms each have en suite bathrooms. The home has a large parlor with bay windows looking out onto the manicured landscaping, which includes old-growth flowering trees and perennials. The guest house is located directly behind the home and has one bedroom, ¾ bath, and kitchenette. The generously sized barn with large loft was restored using original timbers and siding and was awarded the National Trust for Historic Preservation's prestigious Preservation Award. The quiet and historic neighborhood is within walking distance of the lively downtown boardwalk and open-air exhibits. National Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands are right down the street, and Virginia City has easy access to the old mining roads that wind through the Gravelly Range Mountains and Alder Gulch. Recreational activities (horseback riding, hiking, biking, and touring) are plentiful, and there is access to world-class fishing in the rivers, streams, and lakes of the area. The home's history is documented in the Library of Congress' Historical America Building Survey and it played an important role in the founding history of Virginia City and the state of Montana.
