Unspoiled Beauty, Unsurpassed Amenities, Unparalleled Location

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains just west of the famed Gallatin River and near the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park and picturesque Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort, this custom residence is ideally located in the exclusive Yellowstone Club, a private residential community unparalleled in its members and its privacy.

The world’s only private ski and golf community, the Club truly captures the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains with superior amenities, casual charm and overwhelming natural beauty — an incomparable experience of luxurious mountain living with year-round recreation and cherished family traditions.

Golfers will fall in love with the private championship Tom Weiskopf course, surrounded by mountain vistas and natural beauty. This 18-hole mountain golf course is as bold and breathtaking as the Club itself. Warming huts, known locally as “Sugar Shacks”, the extravagant Rainbow Lodge and Warren Miller Lodge and the Timberline Café, among others, offer members fine dining, relaxation areas, shopping and a full-service day spa.

And don’t forget about the main attraction — the skiing. Together, the Club, Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin offer over 8,000 skiable acres, hundreds of trails, one of the longest verticals, the most skiable acreage and the shortest lift. Say goodbye to the anxieties of tip-to-tail traffic and hello to freedom, a skiing luxury that’s beyond compare. This is quite simply the purest skiing in North America. The Club itself offers exclusive private powder — with the finest skiing conditions in the world — for its members, their families and invited guests.

Encompassing 25 square miles, the Club comes with an enormous backyard. The vast 2.2 million acres of Yellowstone National Park sits waiting to be explored, just minutes away. Feeling wild? Another 1.9 million acres of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area and Gallatin National Forest add up to a four-million-acre Yellowstone Country playground, where adventure is limited only by your own imagination. Go horseback riding, touring and back-country skiing on trails you create in the natural forest — all from your new home at the Club. Adventurers will find all the rock climbing and white water rafting they can handle, and don’t forget the trails for hiking and mountain biking that go for miles and miles.

Your home is near the nation’s best blue-ribbon trout streams, 18- to 30-inch trout fighting with a wild fury, salmon flies on the Big Hole, hoppers on the Yellowstone and Calabaetis on Paradise Valley’s creeks — not to mention the Gallatin River just a few miles away.

Listen to Old Faithful Geyser blow. Watch a herd of elk graze the meadows of the Gibbon River. Have a Club Concierge organize a pack trip, complete with steak and lobster dinner, on your way to the lake at the top of Cedar Mountain, where you can catch native west-slope cutthroats stocked by the Forest Service decades upon decades ago.

Kayak across Yellowstone Lake or dive into the water sports on nearby Hebgen Lake. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, biking, paddling and adventures in this private paradise. Live life the way it was meant to be: both with nature and where luxurious amenities abound.

Magnificent Custom Home, Your Own Private Mountain Retreat

Only steps away from the combined 8,000 skiable acres of the Club, Big Sky Ski & Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin, the enormous lodge-style home incorporates stunning cedar logs and sturdy stone throughout its entire design to create a warm rustic feel, nestled securely against the mountainside.

Reconnect with each other and with nature at any time of the day. The spacious, five-bedroom home draws inspiration from the most refined private ski resorts in the world. Escape from the tedium of everyday life as you ski World-class Private Powder from your own backyard or soak after a day of play in the hot tub. An expansive double garage offers ample storage for all the sports gear and vehicles even the most active outdoor enthusiast would ever need.

Offering 5,500 livable square feet, five bedrooms, five full and one half bathrooms, family members and friends are able to easily gather together while also enjoying their own space. Impress guests with the magnificent combination of adventure and elegance that flows throughout the two-level home — Wide windows frame the picturesque landscape and stunning views of Pioneer Mountain, Eglise Mountain and the Gallatin Range while stone fireplaces and log detailing bring touches of nature indoors.

An adjacent office provides an excellent work environment — close to everyone, yet separate enough for business.

Entertain…In Your Ski and Play

At the end of the entry hall, past the powder room and wrought-iron staircase, you will find one of the largest rooms in the house, the aptly-named great room.

People and conversation easily flow throughout the entire home, but you will find the majority of indoor congregating done around this room’s massive stacked stone fireplace.

Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and an optimal due South location allow natural sunlight and warmth to radiate the home, while the soaring cathedral ceilings make this room feel like it is part of the great outdoors. The home also features a coveted humidication system. A rare feature, the system is ideal for homes in colder environments, great for both you and your furniture alike!

After the sun goes down, set the evening mood with light from the glowing chandeliers and spur a crackling fire.

Gourmet, Ample Space to Entertain…Inside or Out

The dining room leads from the great room to the gourmet chef’s kitchen, the heart of the home. Host your large family gatherings in this area. Between the formal dining room, casual breakfast nook and bar-height seating around the kitchen’s center island, you will always have enough seating, whether you are entertaining your family of four or extended family and guests.

The kitchen area even opens to a large covered deck, complete with an outdoor fireplace and grilling area, at once marrying the indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces into one — ideal for relaxed summer evenings filled with intimate conversation amongst friends.

The kitchen itself is both spacious and refined, with custom cabinetry and unique countertops. A stainless steel six-burner stove and oven gleams in the background while a panel refrigerator/freezer blends into the woodwork. What really steals the show, however, is the large center island that offers the home chef ample workspace and a casual eating area alike.

Master Suite, Relax Among Magnificent Mountain Views…Every Day

What luxury home would be complete without a master retreat fit for royalty? Revel in opulence when you settle into the master suite, conveniently located on the main level of the home across from the study, and attached to the exercise room.
