A short drive from Big Sky town center will take you to a secluded mountain oasis with inspiring vistas and 160 acres of timbered ridges and meadows. Strategically positioned along the highest ridgeline of the property, this home takes full advantage of the almost-360-degree views of the surrounding Gallatin Mountain Range and Spanish Peaks.
The home, designed my Miller Roodell Architects and built by On Site Management, is the epitome of a mountain lodge. "It’s designed to be comfortable for two to 20 people, and the expert construction and landscaping allows it nestle into the natural surroundings as if it’s been there for generations," says Martha Johnson, the listing agent with The Big Sky Real Estate Co.
The home's unique aesthetic can be attributed in part to the reclaimed hewn timbers and Montana moss rock found throughout. Amenities include custom details like a pizza room adjacent to a full-service kitchen, a bar with a 144-gallon semicircular saltwater fish tank and gaming area next to a wine cellar, an elevator, lookout tower, indoor spa with sauna, well-equipped gym and an outdoor hot tub overlooking the pond.
This Montana dream home, which is on the market for $25 million, features sylish rustic interiors with a stone fireplace in the great room.
Reclaimed hewn timbers provide custom structural elements throughout the home. A large old swing beam above the kitchen supports the loft, and window and door trim are sourced from an old building in Times Square.
Custom cabinetry and ironwork details throughout the home were created and built by local craftsman. The bar is made out of the bridge piles from the Great Salt Lake trestle.
All bedroom suites were given a private outdoor porch/patio and the master bedroom suite is equipped with an outdoor shower on the covered porch, ensuring you'll wake up to breathtaking mountain views each day.
This home is perfect for a "buyer who is outdoorsy, likely has a large family or a lot of friends, and loves a very well-designed and built home," says Johnson. Multiple ponds were developed on the property to provide a private fishing opportunity and the pond adjacent to the home is perfect for skating in the Winter months.
