Hello friends and neighbors! I am writing this newsletter to help you know what is going on in and around our neighborhood as well as the Big Sky area. The real estate market is HOT right now and inventory is LOW, but there are still some good deals to be found! Did you know that there are lots available in the desirable area of South Fork? Currently there are 6 lots listed that range from $155,000-169,000 for approximately a quarter to a third acre. South Fork Phase 5 lots allow for single family homes plus the option to build an attached accessory apartment, as a conditional use under Gallatin County zoning (that one would have to apply for). Most of these lots are ready to build on with all utilities to the lots. I really like the Big Pine Drive lots because they are set up on a hill, overlooking the meadow, they are set off the main road and have a quiet feel to them. There are still lots available on Upper Whitefish drive and on Spruce Cone Drive. Currently, three Packy Cronin lots on Spruce Cone are under contract, which shows what a desirable neighborhood Southfork really is, land is being snapped up! I am sure you have all noticed the construction on Spruce Cone Drive. There are currently 5 homes available. Allison Gilley, with Big Sky Sotheby's International Realty, has two units available for $545,000 each (town home). These units have 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and have Alder doors, wood burning fire places, and shiplap accent walls in living area. Pine wood flooring and radiant heat on the main level and carpet on the upper levels. Master bedrooms have tiled baths and large walk in closets. 7,000 SF lot backs up to open space, trail network and sled hill. Rich Jorgenson, with Timberveil Real Estate, Inc. has a single-family home with an accessory apartment listed for $759,000. This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. There are hardwood floors and a gas fireplace. Ryan Kulesza and Carrie Bryan have a 4 bedroom, single family home on Upper Whitefish Drive listed for $895,000 and is located on a private cul-de-sac. It has all the bells and whistles, including an open floor plan featuring beautiful hardwood floors and large windows. A main level master suite includes a large closet and walk in shower. The laundry room includes ski lockers and a boot warmer. There is a 2 car garage with ample storage. There is a second level additional master suite, open living bonus room, 2 additional bedrooms and a full bath. There is also a basement level apartment which provides for great income opportunity. The apartment has a separate entrance.
