A Mountain Retreat With Never-Ending Views
This Yellowstone Club Home provides unparalleled luxuries and privacy
The Andesite Ridge neighborhood of the Yellowstone Club tucks into a mountain hillside, with a slope that guarantees all homesites have big views of the surrounding peaks. This is where mountain architecture shines, with homes that thoughtfully blur the line between indoor and outdoor, thanks to broad decks and huge windows.
The custom residence at 198 Andesite Ridge is no exception. This home provides unparalleled luxuries: an escape where crisp, snowy evenings are the backdrop for warm family gatherings, and a private ski chalet with unbeatable ski-in/ski-out access to some of the world’s finest powder skiing at the Yellowstone Club and Big Sky Resort.
Though countless amenities are nearby, the Andesite Ridge neighborhood maintains the feeling of a secluded retreat tucked in Montana’s lodgepole forests.
“198 Andesite is a unique property because the location is very private while still offering ski access and big views,” said listing agent Dave Kisko of Yellowstone Club Realty.
With over 8,000 square feet of living space across three levels, this spacious residence is ideal for large gatherings of family and friends.
“This home is a great example of Mountain Transitional design,” explained Daryl Nourse, Principal at Reid Smith Architects, “offering contemporary living spaces and clean lines together with some traditional roof forms. It gives a nod to the past while providing modern living comforts.”
From the sweeping main entry, guests move inward toward the glassed-in great room, where picture windows frame stunning views of Lone Peak. The near-continuous wall of glass blurs the line between indoors and outdoors, while the stately interiors, including the expansive stone fireplace and warm wood flooring, divide the open floor plan into distinct spaces.
“The main fireplace in the living room was designed to be more masculine with the large boulder hearth, thick steel surround, and expansive fire box that turns the corner to welcome you in from the entry,” said Nourse.
Common areas here include the kitchen, dining, great room, and intimate hearth room, all with easy access to the incredible covered deck, complete with outdoor kitchen and fire pit area. The grand owner’s suite is also located on the main level and is the ideal spot for luxurious relaxation, thanks to the spa-like bathroom with tub and steam shower, large closet with stacked washer and dryer, and gas fireplace.
Stunning curved stairs follow the wall of glass down to the lower level, where an incredible array of amenities await.
“The curved staircase is a focal point in the home, suspended from vertical cables that also function as the guard rail,” according to Nourse. “These vertical cables are also used on other elements in the home creating a familiar theme and edgy design throughout the house.”
This lower level has something for everyone: cozy rec room, home theater, fully equipped home gym, swanky bar area, and spacious ski room with lockers and boot dryers.
The lower level is also home to additional guest accommodations, including a large bunk room, a whimsical bedroom complete with sleeping loft, and additional guest suite with sleeping loft. A nearby second staircase leads back up to the main level.
Two separate upper-level spaces round out the offerings in this home: First, the home office, accessed via stairs near the owner’s suite lead up to a private office, featuring built-in shelving and a powder room. A second staircase near the garage leads up to additional guest suites: two bedrooms, each with a bathroom, plus a sitting room with sleeping loft.
The numerous spaces in this home all work together to create an effortless feel—with airy, lively design that feels both modern and timeless.
“The design of the home does a great job of combining a contemporary ski home with a timeless look,” Kisko said.
And while it’s true that this home lives like its own private retreat, it’s just as easy to get out and explore as it is to tuck into the relaxing spaces inside.
Neighborhood ski lifts make it easy to access amazing skiing at Yellowstone Club that includes over 100 runs with a mix of beginner terrain, intermediate runs, expert chutes, trees, and gullies. And, over the last couple of years, Yellowstone Club has opened additional skiing on Eglise Mountain that is served by a state-of-the-art Gondola originating from the recently expanded base Village. In addition to the Gondola, the Village includes locker facilities, spa and fitness area, market, underground parking, and several restaurants.
Kisko summed it up well when he said, “When you’re at this home, it’s like you’re in your own little world.”
