WHITEFISH, Mont., July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the August 20th without reserve auction of the Endless Sky Estate, a gorgeous mountain lodge nestled near Whitefish Lake and Glacier National Park offering world-class winter skiing, summer fishing and year-round nature. Built with classic Montana stone and wood architecture, this stunning residence makes the perfect setting for family festivities or a corporate retreat. Originally offered for $11.3 million, Endless Sky Estate will sell to the highest bidder in cooperation with Lorri Nelson and JoBeth Blair of Glacier Sotheby's International Realty.
"Every single person who has toured the Endless Sky Estate has been stunned by its beauty and craftsmanship," stated Nelson. "Without question, it is one the most preeminent homes in the Northwest and is located just a short drive from Whitefish, one of the most sought after zip codes in Montana. It has been an honor and privilege to represent this fine property and its owner. We are pleased with the opportunity to work with Concierge and believe that their first-class auction venue will result in an exciting and satisfactory sale."
"This property is absolutely flawless in its construction and design. With phenomenal views of Whitefish Lake and nearby Whitefish Mountain Resort, this estate combines sophistication and refinement with the warmth and tranquility of Montana mountain living," added Blair. "We are familiar with Concierge Auctions' recent successful sales in the area and are excited to partner with them to showcase this incredible property to a large audience of qualified buyers. We are confident that through the auction process we will be able to arrive at a true market value on this home come auction day."
Nestled in the privacy of 20 acres, the 10,200-square-foot lodge embodies Montana with its thick Douglas fir timbers, cedar shingles, soaring ceilings, and local "Chief Cliff" stone.
The focal point of the Endless Sky Estate is its spectacular great room with magnificent woodwork and grand windows. The lodge overlooks Whitefish Lake and offers seemingly endless views of nearby Whitefish Mountain Ski and Summer Resort and the legendary snow-capped peaks of Glacier National Park from the home's 2000-square-feet of decking. Inside, the views are equally unobstructed with massive mitered windows throughout. The sumptuous master suite includes a fireplace and private deck and the home also includes three beautifully-designed guest suites and a full apartment above the garage.
The kitchen at Endless Sky Estate was designed with entertaining in mind, whether an intimate dinner party for six or a soiree for sixty. The food from nearby Whitefish Farmer's Market will translate beautifully to the table with the help of the 48-inch Dacor range, microwave, and warming drawer, the 9-foot-high copper hood, double Subzero refrigerators, freezers, refrigerated drawers, and a wine chiller, and two Asko dishwashers. The dining room's custom
Cantilevered buffet, adorned with an exquisite curved piece of carved and etched glass, adds an artistic beauty to already-exceptional dining experiences. The 860-bottle wine cellar, custom home theater, library with fireplace, and outdoor spa and fire pit provide further enjoyment for guests.
The town of Whitefish, Montana, is set in the heart of the Rocky Mountain wilderness near Glacier National Park. Locals and visitors flock to Whitefish Lake for swimming in the summer and Whitefish Mountain for skiing in the winter. With more than 700 miles of well-marked trails, the area is ripe for hiking and exploration, with clear streams, lakes, and glaciers all along the way. Whether skiing across a snow-topped landscape or bicycling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the entire region is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The community also enjoys a strong theater and arts community, with hundreds of sculptors, craftsmen, painters, and authors calling Whitefish home.
"Concierge Auctions is very familiar with the Montana market and has experienced great success in the Whitefish region, as was apparent with the remarkable sale of 100 Scullers Way. We have a strong track record throughout the entire state, selling seven of Montana's finest properties including three luxury mountain residences within the prestigious Yellowstone Club, three in The Club at Spanish Peaks, and one at Ponderosa Ranch," stated Chad Roffers, Head of Client Services at Concierge Auctions. "We look forward to upholding our reputation in the area with a successful auction of Endless Sky Estate on August 20th."
