Sometimes, to get through winter you just have to lean into it, and we’ve found a place that will help you do just that
For all you frostbitten lovers of blizzards and sub-zero temperatures, behold 106 Andesite Ridge, a sprawling Montana wood-cabin-style lodge located at the Yellowstone Club private residential community in the majestic Rocky Mountains. Set on just over two acres and featuring four bedrooms and eight luxurious bathrooms in its nearly 7,000-sqf layout, this chalet can be described as luxuriously rustic. If you think that’s a contradiction, just look at its artfully rural wood-and-stone interiors and lovingly worn-in finishing touches (check out that antler chandelier).
To be sure, details are of the highest standards, like the stone fireplace, jaw-dropping vaulted ceilings, and expansive windows, which welcome a breathtaking view in the home’s great room. Then there’s a kitchen built for a chef, with a Thermador refrigerator and built-in Miele coffee machine. If you prefer drinks over food, worry not: There’s a wine cellar downstairs next to the in-house movie theatre.
And while this house is just screaming for you to turn on some Netflix and hide under some cosy blankets with a cup of hot cocoa, we have a feeling you’ll reconsider a trip outside when you encounter a heated stone deck that lures you right to the hot tub. And to put the cherry on top, slope-happy potential buyers should know it has ski-up/ski-out access and a considerable mud room (adjacent to the laundry room) for hopping in and out of your coolest apres-ski ensemble.
Of course, these kinds of high-end amenities bring a price tag to match. So if you love winter, cabins, and skiing – and if you have a a cool US$10 million (S$13.5 million) lying around – it seems like you’ve found the perfect winter home.
