Private Island Market


Shelter Island Estate drops asking price by USD$ 15.5 M

Monday, April 1st, 2013

The majestic mountain aerie that is Shelter Island Estate has recently reduced its asking price by USD$ 15, 500, 000. Originally priced at USD$ 75, 000, 000, the island is now selling for USD$ 59, 500, 000. With such an extreme price drop, this incredibly rare property has re-positioned itself in the island market – once a distant dream, it now stands as a viable reality for many island buyers.

Shelter Island currently stands the largest private home in Montana, featuring over 32,000 square feet of structures and commanding 7,000 feet of prime lakeside frontage. The island’s main home is built upon a solid granite foundation, while the island itself spans 24 pristine acres, rising from Montana’s Flathead Lake – one of the top-3 cleanest lakes in the world.

The 5 bedroom/8 bath main home encompasses over 24,000 square feet, with 10,000 square feet of heated porticos and outdoor entertaining space that surround the residence. Materials used throughout the estate include: lustrous African Mahogany installed by hand, French Limestone, Italian plaster, and copper and bronze custom double-pane windows, just to name a few.

The Master Bedroom Suite is the centerpiece of the main floor with wrap around porticos and porches, a domed ceiling with delicate umber, coved lighting. The mahogany closet, with refrigerator, leads to the expansive Master Bathroom with black and white Carrara marble. Additional 4 bedrooms feature the same quality and craftsmanship as used throughout the estate.

The Great Room features 45-foot ceilings with a 2nd story gallery that encircles the room. On one end of this baronial hall is a limestone fireplace and at the other end, a 120-inch television, custom built into the lustrous mahogany panels.

A gleaming, copper Conservatory is the perfect place to watch Montana wild life unfold before your eyes, in all seasons. It captures year-round natural light and illuminates the space between the grand hall and the mahogany-lined Office. Additional complements of the Office include another limestone fireplace and 4 inch thick doors that open onto the main portico.

The Dining Room, Kitchen, and Breakfast Room boast the same architectural details and fine finishes found throughout the home, along with gorgeous views of the lake and vistas beyond. Two pantries, glass door refrigerator/freezers, several under counter cooling boxes, trash compactors, food warming drawers, multiple dishwashers and stainless steel gas stoves are just a portion of the amenities ready to assist the finest gourmet chef and staff.

The Main House also features a Wine Cellar, an Indoor Shooting Range, and Gym with lake views and large shower and steam bath (one of 4). The ground floor also has a heated Boat Stall served by a dedicated rail system to access your boating craft with the greatest of ease.
