Another day in Paradise
By Stacy and Eric Ossorio
“Its magical.” We hear that a lot from visitors to Big Sky.
Well, it is magical here. If you are reading this, you know. Sometimes we take things for granted and need a reminder of why this place is so special. Sometimes it takes a visitor to remind us.
The fact is, Big Sky is growing by leaps and bounds. Its not because anyone is compelled to be here. Its because so many people choose to be here and want to be here. Many lucky locals have made Big Sky their home. Many lucky visitors choose to make Big Sky their second home. Sometimes after their first visit.
So, what is that compels people to decide to rearranged their priorities to allow Big Sky to become a part of them? What view amazes them? Which location calls them into the woods, or to a nearby trail? Which building style strikes a chord? Which of our three Club option suits their lifestyle?
There are not many places in the Rocky Mountains that clobber you with such a compelling and dominating alpine view: the silhouette of Lone Mountain on the western horizon.
Big Sky is poised for $1 billion in development investment over the next 10 years. The planned investment is the response to many factors, but can be boiled down to the very rational desire of so many people to enjoy the combination of unparalleled beauty, unparalleled out door recreation and the respect of nature reflected in the development of the area.
That rational desire sometimes leads to irrational, though thoroughly human behavior. The desire to be a part of Big Sky can be compelling and people often choose to belong to something that is unique and vibrant, and they rearrange their priorities accordingly. Fortunately, comprising just over 120 sq. miles of area (compared to Vail, CO’s 4.5 sq. miles) Big Sky offers something for just about everyone.
There are properties to fit all priorities: from condominiums, to single family residences, to fairway-side golf course or ski-in, ski-out lots to 20 acre tracts and larger. Compelling vistas are everywhere: there are no bad views.
As demand for Big Sky continues to put pressure on the existing built inventory, we see that land has reemerged as an attractive acquisition, allowing for a lower cost alternative to some speculative development and with the opportunity to create one’s own vision when the time is right.
Exploring the abundance of opportunities can be daunting, as there are many factors to consider: proximity, neighborhoods, access, topography, cost of ownership. We have lived here for 25 years and know the lay of the land, and would be happy to help you connect the dots in our growing community.
