The builder of this inimitable mountain home constructed it out of a portion of the Anaconda Gold Coin Mine.
Unique would be an understatement. Overlooking the Gallatin River, between Big Sky and Yellowstone National Park, there’s a home that pays homage to the long-gone mining era in distinct mountain style.
The home isn’t inside a mine by any means, but it was built out of portions of the old Gold Coin Mine from Anaconda, Montana, where the mine once operated and had since been disassembled. Centre Sky Architecture repurposed actual parts of the mine—such as a steel clinker, now part of the fireplace, and an old valve, now a bathtub faucet—within the 5,398-square-foot home. The mining-town aesthetic is recognizable at once, thanks to a sophisticated blend of rugged and industrial design. That’s intentional. Every detail, from the wood beams to the metal roofing, is meant to reflect the region’s prominent mining history while still offering a luxurious place to get away.
The property comprises 23 acres and its own private, half-mile strip of the Gallatin River, which is overlooked by the home’s nearly 500-square-foot deck and accessible by a private bridge. In addition to 4 bedrooms (including a great big bunk room!) and 4.5 bathrooms, the residence features a chef’s kitchen with a pizza oven, a fabulous “trap door” wine cellar, and cozy interior finishes throughout.
For anyone wanting that piece of property unlike any other, this is it.
