Set on 160 snow-covered acres, this wood and stone estate is a truly unique family cottage…
Perfect for enjoying a snowy winter, this cottage is located in Big Sky, Montana. Once inside, you can explore its 160 wooded acres, covered with snow and ice, or you can master skiing at a nearby ski center.
Called Greathorn Lodge, this cottage was a dream of a local family, whose members wanted to have a place for big family gatherings. After eight years of construction, it contains everything that can come to mind, with no part of it being spared.
Resilient and bulky wood was used for its exterior, while recycled wood was used in the interior, with each nail handcrafted by local artisans. All the stone that was used to build it was sourced locally, while many details, such as wooden cabinets and iron elements, are also the work of local artists.
A long gravel path with meanders leads you to this property, which at first glance will already delight you with its dramatic stone facade, covered terraces and magical roof vista. With approximately 1,600 square feet of space, with eight bedrooms with private baths, numerous children’s rooms, comfortable wardrobes, an intimate dining room and a games room that houses a pool table and bar, we’re sure you won’t be bored here.
You can reach the rooftop lookout by elevator or a cast-iron spiral staircase, from which you can enjoy incredible views. For fun after skiing, you can choose the kitchen as the ideal space because it comes with a wine cellar, which is decorated with brick ceilings, while there is a separate pizza room with an oven on wood.
One of the main elements of this home is the master bedroom with its massive timber beams, vaulted roof, hardwood floors, huge stone fireplace and doors that open to the patio and majestic views.
If you are looking for outdoor fun, know that you can skate here on ice during the winter, or relax on the beach or in the pool during the summer. In addition, you will find an outdoor jacuzzi, a spa with sauna and an oversized steam shower. What else do you need?
