The Abagail Ranch, located 4 miles due south from downtown Bozeman, embraces all the best of Montana living. Within an hour, you can be skiing at Big Sky or fly fishing on the Yellowstone River. Right outside your back door is a 5 acre stocked lake, wildlife galore, and an extensive trail system winding through woods and along the Sourdough Creek.
The large 10’ high solid teak double doors open into the elegant foyer of this Italian-influenced mansion. The spacious entry has marble floors, 22’ high ceilings and opens into the home that is bathed by the shimmering light reflected off the lake. Large windows not only let light into the master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen/family room, but also allow for wonderful views of the splendors surrounding the home including waterfalls, wildlife and mountains framed by verdant meadows.
The gourmet kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances boasts 25’ ceilings with a vaulted skylight and a magnificent 7’x20’ marble mosaic created by Italian artist Carmelo Fiannaca specifically for this space. A separate butler’s pantry, large walk-in bar with stools and fully-equipped outdoor kitchen ensure that entertaining is on a grand scale. The formal library features Brazilian cherry floors and paneling as well as a stunning stone fireplace with carved mantle.
The master bedroom suite has its own mini-bar area as well as master switches for the house and a magnificent lake view. All 7 bedrooms have sound systems and private baths. There are 9 bathrooms in the house. The second floor is accessible by elevator.
A 655+/- sq.ft. dance studio which is currently used as an exercise/play room, equipped with a pool table and features two mirrored walls. The 1,500 sq.ft. atrium garden/greenhouse provides a lush entry from the garage into the kitchen as well as an informal dining area. The entire house is wired for sound, security and specialty lighting.
The pristinely beautiful and very-private Abagail Ranch is centrally located in Gallatin Valley, approximately 4 miles south of downtown Bozeman, on a 20.003 acre parcel of land. Close to Bridger Bowl and Big Sky ski area, blue-ribbon trout streams and Yellowstone National Park, this property offers easy access to all the best of Montana living: skiing, fishing, hunting, golf, cross country skiing, restaurants, art galleries, antique shops, hot springs spas, snowmobiling, hiking, camping and horseback riding. Abagail Ranch is also located within minutes of schools, Yellowstone International Airport, Bozeman Deaconess Hospital and shopping.
The 11,333+/- sq.ft. home includes 7 bedrooms, with a spacious first-floor master suite, 9 bathrooms, an elevator, wine cellar, 655 +/- sq.ft. dance/exercise room that is mirrored on two walls, a formal library finished in Brazilian cherry, 4 car garage that accommodates an RV, a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, an indoor greenhouse and all the comforts and sophisticated elegance expected in an estate of this magnitude.
Built in 1998, by Bridger Builders for the previous owners, the house has been recently remodeled. It is a warm and inviting home with vast views of the surrounding mountains, the lake beside the home, and towering trees ringing the verdant pastures. This is an ideal horse property, with state and national land minutes from the home providing endless trails into back country. It is also a home that is equally suited for providing endless trails into back country and is equally suited for entertaining on a grand scale. Everyone loves gathering in the kitchen and great room, under the 25 foot high vaulted skylight featuring the 7’ by 20’ marble mosaic created by Italian artist Carmelo Fiannaca. The built-in bar, informal dining area and family room overlook the vast patios and outdoor kitchen, framed by the lake and waterfalls, as do the formal dining and living rooms. There is also long-term guest or caretaker’s quarters, complete with kitchen, laundry and living areas. Fully air conditioned, the house has radiant heat in the main rooms and forced air heating elsewhere.
The house is entered from the circular drive through 10’ double solid teak doors. The foyer opens to the living room with 22’ ceilings and cozy couches beside the fireplace. Marble floors, integral plaster walls and warm wood-toned columns and molding set the stage for a residence that flawlessly blends the majesty of the Montana landscape with the coziness of home.
Situated beside the cottonwood-lined Sourdough Creek, Abagail Ranch abounds with wildlife, from migrating elk herds, a large population of white tail deer, the occasional moose and black bear, fox, coyotes, muskrat, and beavers to a variety of birds including bald eagles, red tailed hawks, Hungarian Partridges, pheasants, and owls. The large lake adjacent to the house is stocked with trout for your own personal fishing. Everyone enjoys stepping off the lake’s dock into a paddle boat or canoe. Two waterfalls feed into the picturesque lake and are a visual delight from many rooms within the home.
