An astonishing compound in Big Sky Country comes with a pyramid and a spaceship. You read that right.
The three-bed, three-bath, off-grid property, which includes a Quonset building, sits on just under 28 acres in Ennis, MT, and is listed for $5,250,000.
The place actually came onto the market in 2019 for $2.2 million but with only 10 acres of land.
“All three buildings on the property are quite unique,” explains listing agent Richard Mayo, with Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties. “The owner of the property designed and built them all himself. It was built to specifications for efficiencies and to capture the most sunlight.”

The owner has been living in a small, pyramid-style building.
“It’s situated in such a way that it catches maximum sunlight to maximize efficiency,” Mayo says. “But the big building that probably caught your eye is called the laboratory.”
This structure looks a bit like a three-story spaceship.
“The basement story with the garage doors is vehicle storage and a full machine shop and laboratory and an experiment station, where [the owner] invents things,” Mayo says.
The lab has a definite lived-in look.
“The second story is where [the owner] lived at one point and is probably 2,500 square feet and [has] three bedrooms,” Mayo notes.
One of the bathrooms is very colorful and close to an area the owner used as a sound stage. There’s an additional stage area is outside.
The home’s third level offers a different vibe, though.
“The top floor is a room that is completely white, and full of south-facing windows, and is really super light and bright,” Mayo says. “It would be an awesome greenhouse or something. You could have your own inside garden.”

Mayo says he has known the seller for about 30 years and helped him sell some agricultural land to pay for the construction of this compound.
“When I first saw it, I was totally in awe of what he has done and how he has done it,” Mayo says.
He explains that while the spaceship-shaped building is in reasonable condition, the pyramid could use some TLC. The roughly 5,500-square-foot Quonset building has never been used and is in perfect shape.
“You can have a number of different things inside,” Mayo notes. “It’s a beautiful building with a full commercial kitchen. It would be perfect for groups of people who wanted to gather for conventions or whatever.”

Solar and wind energy systems are in place, allowing the property to function independent of any municipal utilities. The land is close to Big Sky Resort and is surrounded by mountain and valley vistas.
So, who might be most enticed by this property?
“The perfect buyer is someone with a flair for creativity and someone who appreciates design, and structure, and the environment it is in,” Mayo says. “It could be some group or company that wants space to manufacture things—or a group that want their privacy and yet be kind of close to amenities.”
