This beautiful rustic mountain retreat was designed by Locati Architects along with Tolstedt Architects, located in Yellowstone Club’s classic Andesite Ridge neighborhood, in Big Sky, Montana. The custom timber frame home is surrounded by the gentle sounds of falling water, comprised of 10,000 square feet of living space the home showcases stunning interiors around every turn. The use of reclaimed heavy timber and local stone was carried throughout the home and used as a backdrop for an eclectic mix of interior design form rustic western to modern simplicity to playful craftsmanship.
The homeowners took great pride and care in choosing materials, amenities and special features that make friends and family feel welcome. Entertaining is made easy in the impressive kitchen with features like stainless steel countertops along the perimeter and an extra large granite countertop with a built in steamer.
The kitchen is stocked with restaurant grade appliances and the pantry door has a chalkboard panel to leave notes or write the day’s menu. The hallmark of this room is the gently curved wine cabinet with bent glass and mahogany molding with a built in chilling unit.
