Whoever runs away with this modern mountain house in northwestern Montana won’t have to worry about travel time to an airport. The getaway is one of only a few with year-round fly-in/fly-out convenience.
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home along Whitefish Airport enjoys 360 views of the Flathead National Forest and the Rocky Mountains.
The two-tone contemporary is clad in natural and stained wood. An extended roof overhang supported by thick wood beams and wooden columns creates a covered deck on one side of the home. Irregular-shaped windows add visual interest.
A great room with floor-to-ceiling indoors and a corner fireplace sits inside the front door. The open-plan space encompasses the kitchen, one of two in the home.
The oversized center island has a cooktop and bar seating for 10. Other features include a farmhouse sink, stainless appliances and a walk-in pantry.
The primary suite is also on the main level, while three more bedrooms surrounding a common area make up the second floor. Views take in Whitefish Mountain.
The third-floor entertainment level features a large living and game room area with a fireplace, the second full kitchen and a spa tub.
The finished basement contains a den, a laundry room, storage rooms and another en-suite bedroom for a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms within the 5,720 square feet of living space.
A circular paved driveway accesses the three-car garage.
In addition to the main house, there are approved plans for a 2,300-square-foot guest house and a private airplane hangar.
The 2.5-acre property is 1.5 miles from downtown Whitefish and roughly nine miles from Whitefish Mountain Resort.
The town, set along Whitefish Lake, attracts skiers, mountain bikers, hikers, golfers and water sport enthusiasts. Its Central Avenue is lined with restaurants, shops and art galleries.
