On the southern edge of the vibrant university town of Bozeman, Montana lies the Cottonwood Retreat.  Nestled amidst Douglas fir, spruce, aspens, lodgepole pines and cottonwoods on a sunny point, the property is virtually an extension of the Gallatin National Forest. With hiking and mountain biking out your front door, this 20± acre sun-drenched retreat is unmatched given its proximity to the wonderful college town amenities Bozeman has to offer. Designed by SALA Architects, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and exquisitely crafted by Big Timber Works, the 2 homes on the property are a masterpiece of the genre. The beautifully designed main residence includes an intimate master suite with a walk-in closet and a private balcony plus a guest suite and library. The guest home offers all the comforts and craftsmanship of the main home and includes 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Both residences are characterized by open, sunny spaces with luxury finishes throughout. The estate sits on 20± usable acres comprised of lush wetlands and groves of aspen with exquisite views of the southerly face of the Bridger Mountains and the entire Gallatin Valley.
