Refuge is yours in the heart of Big Sky, Montana, the sweetest little mountain town in America. On the fringe of old-growth forest, amid shifting clouds, sits the 5-B Ranch. With no homeowners association or covenants, this is a ranch retreat at which you may do whatever the heck you want. Constructed and appointed in 1984, mid-century architecture combines primitive wood and rosé stonework with sleep sheets of glass façade, encasing a contemporary spacious sanctuary. The adventurous couple or Renaissance family will find their niche here with unique spaces, such as a fly-tying studio, a dark room, and a soaring inspiration tower looking to Lone Peak... just perfect for a resident poet or artist. With 5 ensuite bedrooms, there's space to sleep dozens of folks. So invite your extended family, your friends, and (of course) your favorite real estate agent because this is a home that beds resplendent dinners, cocktail parties, and rollicking old-fashioned Western hootenannies on the deck with crisp Moscow Mules and endless Pendleton whiskey. Perches in a lush meadow and embraced on one wide by the West Fork of the Gallatin, your neighbors at the 5-B include elk, bighorn sheep, moose, bear, eagles, and trout. 1500 feet of waterfront teeming with Montana's state fish offers a testing ground for those flies you tied back at the house. Humans and horses with be cozily accommodated on the 5-B, with nearly 37 acres of hearty pastures, a hay shed, hitching posts, and a riding ring. Access to countless miles of ride-able National Forest trails is a trot away from your property. With privacy like this, you'd never guess that the Big Sky Town Center is only two miles as the crow flies and a mere eight mile jaunt to the Biggest Skiing in America. The 5-B Ranch is a collection of five hand-picked parcels, offered now by Tallie Lancey of Big Sky Sotheby's International Realty.
