Here’;s a magical mountain property that fits proper in with the vacation theme of the day. Bozeman-based architect Reid Smith developed this gorgeous stone property design for owner Marsha Hill and her enormous family which contains her husband Greg, their 5 kids and 6 grandchildren – with 1 far more on the way! This all-season getaway high in the mountains of Montana delivers skiing in the winter months, tennis in the summer time, and regardless of the climate it really is a warm, cozy spot for all to collect and get pleasure from each and every other’;s organization. The home sits atop a ridge, cantilevered more than the valley beneath, maximizing views and enhancing its sense of h7
The stone exterior attributes naturally uneven blocks that provide a rustic cabin house aesthetic, complemented by wood and stone archway that extends into the home, guiding you in.
Interiors are exactly what you’;d anticipate from the rustic facade, with the very same stone walls, wood columns and overhead arches that define its exterior. The foyer welcomes you with a massive 3-sided stone fireplace worthy of Santa himself. A rustic swing hangs ahead of it, inviting you to sit and thaw from the cold outside.
The 3-sided fireplace anchors the living space, dining area and kitchen, sharing its warmth and its charm.
The traditional style kitchen is clearly a hub in this residence, with a huge center island surrounded by a wood surface for sipping wine and maintaining the chef company for the duration of meal prep. A banquette about the corner offers a separate sitting and eating location – just for the children! A bold black and white backsplash is an immediate focal point in this country kitchen.
The formal dining room is a scrumptious, dramatic space outfitted with a match dining table and seating for 14.
A small sitting location with a daybed overlooks the ski bridge. The what? The site’;s steep slope created access to the home and hills hard, to the architect incorporated a 31-ft, tall elevator tower major to the residence via steel doors. At the tower’;s base, a ski space provides storage for gear and hassle-free ski-in, ski-out access.
An indoor teepee surrounded by a forest of wood pillars.
Bunk beds! The kids’; sleeping region adjoins to the master bedroom.
The ski area at the foot of the elevator tower is as cozy as they come, wrapped in wood and full with sled-inspired ottomans and a hot chocolate station.
The powder area is the only contemporary style space in the entire property, with textured animal-print wallpaper and an onyx vessel hyperlink.
We love this log wall, featuring cut log in different sizes.
Every bedroom was inspired by 1 of the 5 young children, with a design and style and name that followed suit: Rushing Buffalo, Silly Moose, Dancing Fawn, Hungry Bear and Gray Wolf.
