BIG SKY, Mont., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally known for its successful model in the sale of unique luxury mountain properties, Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that a ski lover's paradise with sweeping mountain views and direct access to 8,000 skiable acres, located within the Yellowstone Club, the world's only private ski and golf community, will sell during a live auction without reserve on February 18th. Originally offered for $28 million, 26 Obsidian Road rests on 2.6 acres at the northwest corner of the picturesque Yellowstone National Park and contains approximately 13,713 square feet. It will sell in cooperation with Lynn Milligan and Shawna Winter of Winter & Company Real Estate.
As one of the first residences built in the exclusive Yellowstone Club, 26 Obsidian sits atop a secluded hill surrounded by evergreen trees, offering the ultimate in privacy. The property contains eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, five fireplaces and multiple spacious areas for entertaining, with lodge architecture detail both inside and out including ancient logs and hand-picked moss rocks. Inspiring views of the mountains and valleys can be seen from every window, most of which are floor-to-ceiling. In addition to a study, wet bar, gourmet chef's kitchen and fitness room, there is also a large den with a pool table, game tables and kitchenette and a full ski room with a vertical shoe rack, several open-air lockers and plenty of shelving.
Outdoors, an attached three-car garage and second machine garage allows for plenty of storage, while a heated deck wraps around the back of the house where a 12-person hot tub awaits. The property has unprecedented direct access off the back deck to three ski areas —the Yellowstone Club, Big Sky Ski & Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin — a combined 8,000 skiable acres all accessible via an integrated trail system with an average lift line of 0.01 minutes.
"We are very excited to work with Concierge Auctions on this extremely impressive Yellowstone Club residence and look forward to naming the new owner on auction day," Winters stated. "With arguably the most impressive views and ski-in/ski-out accessibility we've seen in our 20-plus years in the Big Sky real estate market, 26 Obsidian Road offers a location like no other. This magnificent home is certain to attract a diverse mix of luxury buyers seeking to own the best mountain retreat this area has to offer."
Big Sky is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman in the southwestern part of Montana. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains just west of the famed Gallatin River near the northwest corner of 2.2 million-acre Yellowstone National Park, Yellowstone Club is a private residential community known for its exclusivity. In addition to world-renowned skiing and its 18-hole, championship caliber golf course, residents and visitors also enjoy mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting.
