BIG SKY, Mont., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of six successful property auctions in the Big Sky, Montana region over the past year, including Saturday's sale of 26 Obsidian Road within the prestigious Yellowstone Club, NYC-based Concierge Auctions announces the area's next great opportunity. A fully furnished custom residence also in the Club, the world's only private ski and golf community, will sell at auction to the highest bidder on February 22nd. Located at 16 Travertine Road, the property boasts views of both Pioneer Mountain and the 18-hole, private championship Tom Weiskopf golf course. Originally offered for $7.1 million, the two-story luxury property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Martha Johnson of Montana Living ~ Big Sky Real Estate.

"My family and I are very excited to be working with Concierge Auctions. After doing our research, we were impressed with their successful sales history and top-notch talent. We feel confident that we've chosen to work with the best real estate auction firm in the business," stated the seller, Michael Rainin. "This home is the perfect mountain chalet for an active family. It has expansive views and close proximity to the Yellowstone Club amenities. Being a club member and owning this home has given our family much happiness over the years. We know the Concierge team will find the best buyer for the property, who will soon start their own adventure here."

Situated on 2.21 acres near the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, 16 Travertine Road is a 5,500-square-foot, lodge-style home with five bedrooms and five full and one half bathrooms. Lodge architecture detail including stone and cedar logs creates a rustic, mountain feel throughout, while floor-to-ceiling windows allow for incredible views. There are multiple stone fireplaces, an expansive great room, gourmet kitchen, recreation room with pool table and full bar, home theater, fitness room, mudroom and adjacent office, ideal for conducting business. The home opens up to an outdoor patio where a hot tub awaits. An expansive double garage offers ample storage for sports gear and vehicles. The property has nearby access to three ski areas — the Club, Big Sky Ski & Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin — offering a combined and impressive 8,000 skiable acres.

"I am honored to be working the Rainins and Concierge Auctions, with whom I have a successful partnership, having sold multiple properties together over the last year including another home within the Yellowstone Club, estates within The Club at Spanish Peaks and a 180-acre ranch estate in nearby Cameron, MT," Johnson stated. "I know that being a part of the Concierge team leads to success. I am looking forward to launching 16 Travertine and ultimately bringing a new family to this incredible community." 

Big Sky is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman in the southwestern part of Montana. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains just west of the famed Gallatin River near the northwest corner of 2.2 million-acre Yellowstone National Park, the Club is a private residential community known for its exclusivity. In addition to world-renowned skiing and an 18-hole, championship caliber golf course, residents and visitors also enjoy mountain biking, fishing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting. Warming huts, the extravagant Rainbow and Warren Miller Lodges and the Timberline Café, among others, offer guests fine dining, relaxation areas, retail shops and even a day spa. The closest airport is Gallatin Field Airport, located about 50 miles south in Belgrade.

This is Concierge Auctions' second auction within the Club in 2013. On Saturday Concierge sold 26 Obsidian Road — a 15,552-square-foot estate that was one of the first and largest residences built in the community. The sale was handled in cooperation with listing agents Lynn Milligan and Shawna Winter of Winter & Company Real Estate and buyer's agent Scott Samuels of Keller Williams St. Petersburg. The buyers are from Florida and will be new residents of the community and new members of the Club.
