Looking for the ideal location, the discovery of Jackson Hole with its proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the #1 ranked ski destination by Forbes, the most tax friendly state in the country (no personal, corporate or estate tax), world class fishing and wonderful climate combined to make it happen for the owners of this home and property. Jackson Hole is very special and they found the perfect location to build their home and spend time in this special piece of paradise.
This 40+ acre property with stunning Teton views has been transformed into a truly one of a kind eco spot with Three Channel spring creek, a pond, trees, shrubs, walking paths, golf practice area and wildlife retreat.
Architect Tom Ward began designing the modern home requested by the owners. The timeless design worked when it was built and is totally in sync with designs underway today. Built by local luxury builder Bancroft, this 11,500 square foot home exudes quality with the attention to detail, materials used and focus on creating a very special residence.
The home, although perfect for entertaining and large family gatherings is also very comfortable for two and the grounds allow continuous pleasure.
Large and numerous windows offer stunning views from throughoutâ€¦the entry, living areas, kitchen, dining, recreation room and bedrooms.
Direct Teton views are the focus from the gracious entry and expansive hallway which is perfectly suited for art and display. Upon walking into the living room, with its tasteful combination of mahogany and maple, its arched ceiling and floor to ceiling windows, one knows they are in a special place. The comfortable seating areas offer views and conversation spots in front of the wood burning fireplace or overlooking the grounds. Two levels of electric shades allow for setting the perfect ambiance for every occasion.
The perfectly built, 20 foot long mahogany bar offers a lounging area and adjoins the recreation room with pool table.
The media/home theater has a 70 inch television and sound system all with easy access from a control room.
The large kitchen has everything a super chef would want with top quality appliances including separate subzero refrigerator and freezer, gas range and convenient pantry. The wonderful windows in the breakfast area offer terrific views of Sleeping Indian and frequent visiting elk, deer, moose and waterfowl. The cozy sitting area and fireplace create an inviting spot while watching the cooking or just relaxing with a book.
The adjacent mudroom leads to the oversized, heated 3 car garage with multiple built in cabinets.
The large dining room easily seats more than 20 people and also works very well for smaller groups.
A private guest wing, accessed from in the home or a separate outside entrance includes a delightful living room with a woodburning fireplace, bar set up with mini frig, microwave and dishwasher. The two large bedroom suites both open to a deck for outdoor use as well.
Upstairs is accessed via elevator or a wide staircase where the master suite is located. Ideally positioned to capture the magnificent views of the creek, pond, golf area, grounds and Teton Range, the master suite has large windows, a woodburning fireplace and outdoor rooftop hot tub.
The master bath offers large double vanities, a steam shower, large tub, sauna and double water closets plus a massage area and access to another rooftop sitting area.
The closet area offers space for clothes for all seasons and has a second washer and dryer.
Another bedroom suite is upstairs and is adjacent to its own rooftop deck for relaxing or taking in the views.
A large office includes built-ins and windows to allow for extensive creative daydreaming while looking out over the property and enjoying the mountain views.
A separate workout room has ample space for equipment and a variety of workout regimens.
The home has hydronic in-floor heating throughout plus a forced air system for humidification and providing central air conditioning. A one-touch lighting system is also in place as is a security system. Access to the property can be controlled by a gate which is in place.
Seeing this property may take your breath away, it is that beautiful. There are three branches of the creek flowing filled with native cutthroat trout. Tee off from any of the three tee boxes to fine tune your golf game or just hack around on the fairway quality grass, PGA specified green and sand bunkers.
Follow the bark covered paths using the bridges over the creeks or cross country ski throughout the property in the winter, while enjoying the big views. This very private location allows horses and has ample riding area. The opportunity also exists for one or several guest houses if desired.
