Nestled in pine trees on Andesite Mountain’s highest 9,000-foot peak, Yin-Yang West’s 9,695-square foot home is almost invisible from below. The building’s natural sandstone, reclaimed hewn log structure and slate roof blend into the landscape and respect the local terrain.

While building materials were sourced from the American West, the spirit and style of the design are distinctively Asian. The homeowners divide their time between the U.S. and China and desired a harmonious blend of both cultures. The clean and simple interior, complete with a piece of Chinese petrified wood and Japanese calligraphy paintings sit beautifully next to windows that offer views of a high-altitude spring creek and the towering Lone Peak.

The spirit of Yin-Yang West reflects the personality of its owners, welcomes guests to a special place and blends amicably into the Big Sky country.
