Sphinx Mountain Tracts


View on subdivision map

Sphinx Mountain Subdivision is located approximately 14 miles south of Ennis and offers 20-acre lots with direct access to the Madison River through BLM land.  Power is along the highway.  Fantastic 360° views with that real "Big Sky" feeling.  This is fairly remote property and ideal for avid fishermen or someone wanting seclusion but not too far from town.  Covenants allow 4 horses per lot, no further subdivision of lots, homes must be built with at least 1200 SF living space and no more than 7 acres can be fenced. The subdivision lies between the highway and the river on two levels.  The upper bench has better access and closer to power and phone, with 360 deg. views.  The lower bench is on the river level with closer access to the river but farther from power and limited winter access. There is something for everyone.  Power & phone are available at the highway, but several owners have used alternative power very successfully.
