Livingston Real Estate
Experience life in a rustic, western mountain outpost
Less than 30 miles north of the northern entrance to the 3,471 square-mile Yellowstone National Park is Livingston, a small town loaded with big adventures. The town is surrounded by the Absaroka and Gallatin mountain ranges and is seated in the verdant valley of The Yellowstone River. Many homeowners enjoy launching a boat and navigating the river without having to enter Yellowstone or look for public dock access. For many years, the town of Livingston was the "Original Gateway City to Yellowstone National Park." It is still considered a frontier territory and the last city to stop in that provides comfort and luxury before travelers enter the depths of Yellowstone.
In modern times, Livingston is home to the type of old souls who can handle the Old West, which includes many artists and writers in addition to the cowboys and adventurous ranchers. Downtown Livingston is filled with red brick buildings with colorful, old-fashioned signs. Many homes in the area embody mountain and ranch-style architecture. These single-family dwellings often have exterior design patterns that include stone, wood, and other materials that complement the rugged views. Livingston also has Victorian-style buildings and older homes, given its history dating back to the late 19th Century. Many properties are ideal for those who enjoy outdoor activities like horseback riding, hunting, and exploring the countryside.
