1620 Lone Mountain Trail

Livewater on 13.2 Acres, 6,600 SqFt 4 BD, 5 BA Home + Guest House


Quarter Mile of the Gallatin River's Western South Fork and Half Acre Stocked Aerated Pond

Listing Description

Surrounded by the tumbling West Fork of the Gallatin River, and perched on 13.2 towering acres, this compound was designed as a fortress of fun. Campers young and old will find their niche on the grounds of this Big Sky classic. Active families and spritely retirees will never find themselves at a loss for what to do next at Camp West Fork. Surrounded by immaculate landscaping, you’ll find all your favorite games. Dedicated and amateur enthusiasts will find TWO regulation-sized pickleball courts, bocce AND horseshoe courts, and a golf driving range net and chipping area. Those interested in lighter play will find an aerated, stocked trout pond for paddling, a teepee for telling stories and three sunning patios for simply lounging with a cold mojito and good conversation. For those with fancy fishing, viewing wildlife, or simply wanting an escape, a nature walk is a mere step from the main lawn. A winding foot trail through pine forest quickly leads to river solitude and 1,300 feet of water frontage along the West Fork. Camp Life at night is just as potentially packed. Three fire pits, a rotisserie grill, and ample outdoor lighting encourage planned or impromptu gatherings. Invite your extended family or the neighborhood for a barbeque. Really, there’s room and entertainment enough for all of Big Sky to happily convene at Camp West Fork.

Best of all? There are no Camp Counselors here, nobody to blow a whistle on your good, wholesome fun. Without a Homeowner’s Association, this retreat is truly an island unto itself. Few mountain communities feature homes of this caliber outside the jurisdiction of a governing neighborhood body. Stay up past curfew, roast an entire bag of marshmallows and short-sheet the beds with abandon.

Comfortable & Rustic: This hand-scribed and peeled log Main House is a truly livable space. Built in 1984 by Blue Ribbon Builders, and updated in 2008, this space simply says “reunion”: three floors, a grand living room, game room, four bedrooms, a bunk room, five full bathrooms, two fireplaces, and an indoor hot tub and redwood sauna. Oh right . . . and a dog shower area for the final canine family members. Rustic finish work characterizes the main level, including hardwood floors and granite countertops and chopping block countertops in the kitchen. A grand Master Suite features a renovated bathroom with vaulted ceilings and skylights, as well as His and Hers walk-in closets. Two-story decks on the front and back sides of the house offer stunning views from each bedroom. For active Big Sky citizens, the house is thoughtfully outfitted to store and maintain gear, such as a spacious mud room, mitten and boot dryers, and an industrial-sized dryer. A two-car, heated garage with lofted storage provides a spot for ALL of your toys. Not including the garage, the Main House is 6,600 square feet.

A two-story Guest House (780 square feet), built in 1975, sits twenty paces from the Main House. The upstairs, renovated in 2000, features one bedroom, one bathroom, a sleeping loft, a wood burning fireplace, living room, full kitchen, and private deck facing the water. With all of this lawn, house and the accompanying gear, you’re going to need someone to look after it all, right? The downstairs of this building is designed as a caretaker’s quarters (312 square feet), with a kitchen and living area. Within the manicured grounds of the main compound sits a Studio (750 square feet), perfect for artists, extra storage, or as an executive office. With heat and water, the creative or professional in your crew will have the ideal spot to tuk away and get to work.

For the Road Warriors...RVs, campers, and trailers are all permitted on this property. And there’s room to efficiently (and tastefully) stash them all! A full RV hook-up sits on the West side of the property. A large barn with pull-through garage doors accommodates a full-sized RV, something nearly impossible to find on any Big Sky property. A second pull-through garage can house a truck with a hitched trailer. An additional heated storage area serves as storage for paint, tools, and other accessories. A covered shed parks up to five vehicles or trailers. Whew! That’s a lot of storage for a lot of mountain toys.

You can see Lone Peak, Pioneer Mountain and Yellow Mountain from Camp West Fork! Camp West Fork is centrally-located in Big Sky, off the main artery, Lone Mountain Road. A broad and landscaped berm serves as a noise mitigation barrier and maintains privacy. Camp is adjacent to the paved bike bath meandering through all of town, leading the Town Center and local school. Concerts in the Meadow, trips to the grocery store or your favorite Big Sky restaurant and jaunts to area trails are all within easy walking, biking and driving distance. Most critically, Camp West Fork places you at the ideal point on the map to take in views of Lone Peak, Pioneer Mountain and Yellow Mountain, from the deck or yard.

When the sun goes down, move the shindig from the outside, in. The house—an updated vintage number—features double-decker porches, two game rooms, a sweeping kitchen and living area geared to hosting, a hot tub and sauna, and plenty of bunk space for everyone.
