Wild By Nature
Completed in 2007, Wild By Nature captures the beauty of Jackson Hole and invites its owners to share that beauty with friends and family. The property itself-nearly six acres atop a butte-has unobstructed, expansive Teton views and resident wildlife. The five-bedroom home-traditionally constructed of reclaimed and character logs and chunk and moss rock and finished with amenities not often found in Jackson Hole homes-was designed and built for entertaining.
In addition to the expansive master suite with its fireplace, sitting room, his and hers closets, travertine soaking tub and more, Wild By Nature has four roomy guest suites, each with direct access to the outside. Three of the four suites have propane fireplaces and one suite has an attached bonus room. immediately impresses with its thoughtful design, craftsmanship, and detail. Within its 9,000 square feet are both grand spaces perfect for entertaining and also intimate areas.
Entering from the striking porte cochere, the glass-paneled front door reveals a Grand Foyer that immediately introduces the home's personality: naturally elegant. Continuing into the Great Room, a moose antler chandelier hangs dramatically from log beams artfully supporting a vaulted cathedral ceiling. Beneath the soaring ceiling, enjoy a seat in front of the largest of the home's five interior fireplaces or near a wall of windows. The Great Room's see-through rock fireplace opens to the Dining Room on its backside. Adjacent to the Dining Room is the home's spacious, professional-grade, open Kitchen with top-of-the-line touches and components, including a walk-in butler's pantry/bar.
At the west end of the first floor, the Master Suite is both supremely spacious and cozily comfortable. Features include oversize windows, a wood-burning fireplace set inside a surround of Oklahoma moss rock, his and hers walk-in closets, a steam shower with a Kohler Mastershower Surround System, a travertine deep-soaking tub, onyx and marble masonry, a private outdoor shower, and an informal sitting area with 270-degrees of wrap-around windows. A door in the steam shower opens to the outside patio and, several feet across the flagstone patio, an infinity hot tub.
Wild By Nature has four roomy Guest Suites, each with direct access to the outside. Three of the four suites have propane fireplaces and one suite has an attached bonus room.
Wild By Nature has several amenities unique among Jackson Hole homes: an outdoor, heated pool; a 12-seat theater; an outdoor shower; and an infinity hot tub.
The intimate heated outdoor pool set into the mature aspen and pine forest at the property's northern end is landscaped with moss rocks for a "hot springs" feel. In the same area, there is also a travertine-tiled steam sauna. Even more intimate than the pool, and with views of the entire Teton Range, is an infinity hot tub set at the western end of the home's expansive flagstone patio.
The home also has a private theater with a projection screen, Surround Sound, and 12 reclining leather seats.
Indian Springs Ranch
Ideally situated between Teton Village and downtown Jackson, Indian Springs Ranch has placed nearly half of its 1,200 acres under conservation easements. This ensures the ranch's major view sheds remain open for perpetuity and also that homeowners here always have wild neighbors-swans, moose, elk, eagles, and osprey are all frequently sighted around the development.
Indian Springs' amenities include a seasonal outdoor pool, tennis courts, hiking and equestrian trails, natural springs, a community stable, and a charming "Molesworth Cabin," named for noted Wyoming furniture designer Thomas Molesworth, available for gatherings and entertaining.
