One of the largest log home structures ever built, the unique trophy property offers abundant space and privacy.

Built with class and distinction
The massive log-and stone structure, which encompasses 16,500 square feet, blends rustic western frontier flavor with luxurious contemporary finishes and amenities.

A circular drive leads to the front portico, which is flanked by huge stone columns. Upon entering the residence, one is awed by the majestic dual staircase made of perfectly matched split logs. Just beyond the foyer is the expansive great room, where a towering wall of windows showcases breathtaking lake and mountain views. The world’s largest elk antler chandelier graces the great room from the thirty foot ceiling, and a hand-laid stone fireplace with copper finishes commands a central position.
