For many, the allure of Big Sky, Montana lies in the authentic beauty of the natural surroundings: views of Lone Peak and other mountains, wildflowers, wildlife, and, of course, the big far reaching skies. But part of the allure also lies in the sense of community: the neighborhoods, the eateries, the friendly faces, and the authentic outdoorsy Western spirit that runs throughout.
Capturing both is what Skip Radick, managing partner of DR Partners, had in mind when he conceived of Deer Run. Perched on a hill overlooking the Big Sky Town Center, these condominiums strike the perfect balance of privacy and community. And now in their final phase of development, they also have time on their side, as the developers have refined the layouts and finishing touches based on feedback from previous design stages.
The new and final phase includes 3-bedroom duplex units, which offer more space and privacy than the typical fourplexes. Each unit also features outdoor living spaces with front and rear decks for all around views.
Dear Run units are in walking distance to a variety of dining options, nightlife, shopping, movies, and summer farmers’ markets and outdoor concerts. From the front doors there’s access to trails for cross-country skiing and hiking. And with The Biggest Skiing in America, after the combined acreage of Moonlight and Big Sky, these types of Big Sky units are more desirable than ever.
Here, Skip Radick explains the ins and outs of Deer Run’s final phase:
Why is this Big Sky location key?
Town Center has turned into the place to be in Big Sky. But rather than be within that hustle and bustle—even though you can still walk there—you can be right on the outskirts. It has views that Town Center doesn’t, and it has privacy.
What’s involved in the final phase?
We have refined the combination of finishes and floor plans from earlier units to be in tune with today’s styles and needs. Although people love the units as they are, one of the nice features is that if they get in during the pre-construction phase, we can customize anything they want, such as flooring finishes, plumbing, electrical fixtures, we can even tweak the floor plan. We’ve also gone to duplex units instead of four-plexes because people like the extra space and the feeling of privacy.
Why do you think this is a good time for the final phase?
Right now, the timing is just right. We felt that this is the right point in the evolution of Big Sky to finish up.
Why did you turn to Sotheby’s for your exclusive Deer Run listings?
I have a long-standing relationship with Jeff Helms and Anne Staudt from Big Sky Sotheby’s. Also, we’ve found that the Sotheby’s brand is one that people like because of the quality of the service and the professionalism of the people.
