Living in Big Sky country, we are spoiled with a slower paced Montana lifestyle among many other perks. And one of these perks that we never take for granted is the incredible views we are confronted with on a daily basis. Whether you’re driving to work, to play outdoors, or simply gazing out the window of your home, you are likely to see mountain peaks in the distance. If you’re lucky enough to have a deck, these views can be taken from the comforts of an outdoor living space. Here is a roundup of four very different Big Sky, Montana properties on the market right now, all with one thing in common: awesome decks.
This 5,112 square foot classic-style log home is situated on a tree-filled lot that overlooks the Spanish Peaks. Here, residents can live out the fantasy of quintessential Montana log home living with all of the modern comforts, including 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a towering stone fireplace, lofted ceilings, a detailed main floor master suite, a bunkroom, and, of course, a spectacular deck. With access from a screened in porch, lay in the hammock with a good book, sit in a cozy chair for some wildlife watching, or dine al fresco with nothing but the sounds of birds chirping and the wind rustling through the trees.
