Big Sky is a striking, Western Arts-and-Crafts-style home. This home is truly in its glory in summer and early fall. The air smells of sagebrush and pine, the rivers run swift and clear and a nearby bike path will take you to the shops and restaurants of Wilson and all the way into Teton Village. Big Sky is everything a house should be. Comfortable and spacious, welcoming and warm, with glowing colors, rich fabrics, high quality furnishings and art in every room.
The front door opens to a stone-floored foyer, and from here Big Sky unfolds. Banks of windows saturate the rooms with sunlight. Wood floors, stone fireplaces and hues of crimson, butterscotch and rich brown, warm the space.
The kitchen is a cook’s dream. A walk-in pantry, side-by-side refrigerators, drawer dishwashers and an under-counter, drawer-style fridge and freezer make food storage, prep and clean up a true pleasure. A glossy wood bar hewn from slabs of walnut separates the kitchen from the firelit dining room. French doors open to the patio, the built-in grill and the picnic table.
A massive, double-sided stone fireplace marks the transition from dining to living space, where the ceiling soars to double height. Friendly, soft armchairs and a loveseat face each other in front of the gas fire. To one side – a part of both the great and dining rooms – is a gorgeous built-in banquet set under a long band of mullioned windows and a stained glass-topped divider. This is the place for pancakes, card games or pizza and a movie. At the other end of the great room, the billiards table, illuminated by a pine branch pendant lamp, stands under a dazzling view of the ski slopes at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and the Grand itself.
The junior master bedroom is on the ground floor as well. Comfortable and quiet, French doors open to the patio and the glorious mountains. In this bedroom, double sinks stand next to a glassed-in shower with a bench and a window that opens to the sweet summer breezes.
Stairs rise to Big Sky’s second floor – a huge master suite, spacious and intimate all at once, which begins as a loft-like space over the great room. Up here, a living and TV area, an office, and an exterior bridge to a second bedroom make up the ancillary rooms of the suite, while a serene, airy bedroom, European in ambiance and filled with clear light, forms the heart of it.
In the master bedroom, a beamed wood ceiling vaults overhead. A mullioned door opens to a balcony over the main level patio. Even the walk-in closet has a window with a view. The master bathroom has a balcony of its own, double sinks, a water closet, and a deep jetted tub overhung by a fanciful crystal chandelier. Down the hallway from the loft is a second bathroom with a bath and shower combination.
A bridge from the master suite takes you outside beneath the wash of sky to a simple bedroom and all-around “hang-out” area over the garage. This is a casual, comfortable room, with hanging racks instead of closets. Panoramic views to the South and East can be seen from anywhere in the room. Beneath this bedroom is the two-car garage, connected back to the main house by an interior, windowed walkway.
Big Sky’s location is just about perfect – right smack in the middle of nature in all its splendor, with world-class hiking and fishing galore, and yet close to a bike path, the restaurants and markets of Wilson and dancing at the Stagecoach.
