The mystique of Montana is captured beautifully at Andesite Ridge 78, a stunning home inside the ultra-exclusive Yellowstone Club in the heart of Big Sky Country.
“Something happens when you come to Montana,” says Bill Collins, Yellowstone Club’s director of real estate sales. “Everything slows down. People relax. They get here and find that elusive happy place.”
Relaxing, unwinding and recharging are inevitable inside this spacious 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom custom home, which spreads nearly 5,300 square feet across two levels. It sits on 2.48 acres inside the desirable Andesite Ridge area. It’s Yellowstone Club’s original neighborhood, which Collins says has a beautiful blend of older and newer homes. This home is listed at $7,500,000.
The first level is the home’s main living area, which is flooded with great light passing through massive windows that bring the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains inside. The home borders hundreds of acres of open space, so the views are expansive. Lone Peak, Pioneer Mountain, the Spanish Peaks and Eglise Mountain – YC’s newest ski terrain – tower skyward just out the doors.
The open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings. Imagine preparing a holiday meal in the roomy kitchen, feasting and bonding at the dining room table, then retiring to the great room’s comfy couches as a fire roars inside the stone fireplace and shadows are cast to the vaulted ceilings above.
The main level also features a private and peaceful master suite, outdoor spaces, the guest suite and a ski room, giving convenient access to Yellowstone Clubs 2,700-acres of private powder.
The lower level has a family room and two bunkrooms, creating tons of room for guests of all ages. Out the door is a covered patio with a hot tub, perfect for recovering from a day recreating in Montana.
Adding to the home’s value is the life that can be lived at the Yellowstone Club, where the outdoor amenities are unmatched.
“There’s a common bond here at the Yellowstone Club,” Collins says, “and that’s a love for all things outdoors.”
Fly-fishing is part of the fabric of Montana, and that is reflected in the lifestyle at the Yellowstone Club. More than 15 miles of fishable water flow through the property, which Collins says is a great place to learn the art of fly-fishing.
“Not just learning how to cast, but actually catching fish,” he says. “These streams are so seldom fished; these trout are more easily tricked.”
Anglers can graduate to bigger water just minutes from the Club, where some of the best fly-fishing anywhere can be found. The Gallatin, Madison and Yellowstone rivers—all legendary trout-rich fisheries—are within a short drive.
Along with fishing, there’s the Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, equestrian facilities, trap and skeet shooting, hiking, world-class mountain biking, ropes courses and more. What's more, Yellowstone National Park is just down the road.
“We’ve got it all,” Collins says. “And in return, all of the activities add to the family friendly atmosphere here. There’s an amazing group of people here who appreciate all Montana has to offer, and this home is an incredible chance to join the fun.”
