Welcome to the Marshall House! Located just off Orange St. at 3rd St. West, this historic 1890 home/commercial building dates from the heyday of Missoula’s railroad days and has been restored and renovated from top to bottom. The Queen Anne style of the home establishes it as a foundation of the neighborhood. Distinguished by the lovely Victorian turret in the front and the welcoming front porch, the Marshall Home has been designated as part of the Southside Historical District of Missoula, has been awarded a National Historic Preservation Award and is listed on the National Register for Historic Homes.
Elegantly situated on a tree-lined street, it has a tremendous walkability score and is minutes from the University District, St. Patricks Hospital, downtown Missoula, the courthouse, parks, Clark Fork River, and shopping. Zoned as commercial/residential, the Marshall House could be a live-in/business set-up or used as a family residence. The layout of the home with its 12 foot ceilings and generous rooms lends itself to a professional business. It would be a perfect fit for a medical or law practice, counseling center, real estate or insurance office. Use as a group home, nursery or day care is possible too. A generous entry flows into a massive front living room with a bay window alcove. Ceilings soar and bright natural light streams into the space. The centrally located formal dining room is perfect for large family gatherings or as an elegant conference room.
No expense has been spared to create a home or professional space that honors the old, while offering all modern convenience in an updated and remodeled package. The newly added wheelchair accessible back entrance links the property to the paved parking lot in the rear of the building. Marshall House is a two story home with 1702SF on the main floor, and the 2nd floor with master bedroom and bath at 633SF. New plumbing, electrical, and heating systems were installed in 1995 and the roof was recently redone.
Classic details include crown molding, pocket doors, wood floors, brass hardware, and period lighting. Wall coverings and hardware have been carefully chosen to be period-correct. The solid wood floors have been refurbished to a dazzling finish. There are 2.5 baths in the home. The 2 full baths have been remodeled in a style true to the architecture of the home, with a raised toilet tank in the main floor bath and a claw foot tub in the 2nd floor bath with curtain-surround. The master bedroom on the 2nd floor is massive. A multiplicity of ceiling and wall angles with light streaming in through large windows make this a delightful space. Whether this upstairs space is used as an office sanctuary, several office spaces or reimagined as a master bedroom suite, the possibilities are endless. On the main level there are 2 additional bedrooms. 2 bonus rooms on the main floor round-out the home and could easily be set up as bedrooms, a study and/or exam rooms. A functional kitchen is located in the rear of the house that might be converted into a gourmet dream kitchen.
If you are looking for classic architecture to set your home or business apart, you must see the Marshall House. Built in the days when Missoula was a burgeoning cowboy town finding its way on the new frontier, this home is ready for a new purpose. Whether you are seeking a gracious family home, a combination home/business, or a professional building that radiates confidence and longevity, you may just fall in love with this lovely Victorian home on the corner of Orange and 3rd.
