Ahhh Jackson Hole. It’s hard for me to accurately put into words just how much I adore this petite paradise nestled at the base of the Grand Teton mountain range. Here nature takes center stage and outdoor living is at its best!
Although thousands flock to this mountain resort in the winter months for skiing and snow sports, I personally feel that summertime is when it really shines. Lush greenery is everywhere, wild flowers dot the mountainside with color, the Snake River ambles along with crystal clear water and mild summer days with cool nights create the perfect outdoor environment. Wild life abounds in the forests and fields in Teton National Park, as well as in and around the town of Jackson. If you visit, be prepared to see prong-horn antelope, bison, deer, bald eagles, moose and bears, among others woodland animals. Jackson Hole truly is a paradise for nature lovers.
On my most recent visit this summer, I had the opportunity to tour a stunning mountain home with the most gorgeous panoramic views. This home defines mountain living at its finest.
At the end of a winding lane flanked by wildflowers and Aspen trees, the home peeks out through the nature that surrounds it providing privacy and tranquility.
The current owners purchased the 4 bedroom/3 1/2 bath home five years ago, however the story of their history with the home goes back much further. The home was once owned by the current owner’s parents who bought the 1970’s built home in 1986. After 17 years they decided to sell and the home was purchased by a buyer from out of state. When the property was once again listed for sale, some years later, the current owners jumped at the chance to re-purchase the home in which they had so many fond memories.
The living space of the home is the owner’s favorite. With vaulted ceilings and large windows displaying spectacular views, this space is filled with light. Assisting in the decor of the home, local home furnishing store owner, Lisa Gute helped the couple with several items. A Persian area rug from her store, Home Again adds a bit of color to the airy space.
A rustic stone fireplace holds court along one wall of the living room, providing warmth on chilly Jackson nights.
If you look closely, you may spot a sheep statuette perched on a rocky ledge of the fireplace. The statue was displayed in the home under the ownership of the homeowner’s parents. When the couple purchased the home, the statue returned home as well.
A wood-topped coffee table from Home Again holds nature-filled books.
A cozy seating area next to the living room space provides more gathering room for family guest. A turquoise buffet from Twenty Two Home displays family photos.
Tucked above the living area of the home is a sleeping loft.
A charming buckskin chair, found in an antique store by the couple, decorates the loft area.
An open floor plan from the living, dining and kitchen areas of the home allows for easy entertaining.
The bar cart is a favorite piece of the homeowner. Purchased from Twenty Two Home, it provides a place to display glassware and the couple’s Vagabond House Lodge Style pewter pieces.
The dining room is surrounded by windows, providing amazing vistas while entertaining.
The recently remodeled kitchen opens to the dining and living area of the home. A butcher block island countertop provides extra seating and dining space.
The living area of the home opens to a large wraparound deck. Unmatched views of Snake River and the Teton Mountain Range greet you as soon as you step outside.
The deck overlooks a fire pit area frequently used by the homeowners on Jackson’s cool evenings.
Next-door to the kitchen is a cute and cozy wood paneled laundry room with wooden island table.
Texture abounds throughout the home.
A spacious and bright master bedroom boasts vaulted ceilings and panoramic mountain views.
A silk Wyoming scarf purchased from a local art fair and framed by the homeowner’s parents was originally in the house under their ownership. The current owners returned the artwork to its former place of honor above a desk in the master bedroom.
A winding staircase leads to the lower level of the home.
Displayed in the lower level hallway is a collection of leather chaps, family heirlooms from the husband’s time working on a ranch and from his father.
A lower level family room is the perfect spot to watch television or play a game of pool.
The colorful family room rug was acquired from a local interior designer who has since moved from the area.
A second stone fireplace warms the space.
One guest bedroom sports twin beds with nailhead trim headboards from Home Again.
Another guest bedroom is outfitted with a Queen bed with headboard from Home Again.
Upon exiting the home, you are greeted by a boardwalk leading you around the house. A hammock provides the perfect resting spot to relax and enjoy the views.
Wildflowers dot the pathway to the fire pit area of the yard.
Sage green Adirondack chairs surround the fire pit. The chairs, replicas of the Adirondack chairs that line the porch of the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve, were commissioned by the couple and built locally in Jackson.
It is easy to get lost in the tranquility of this abode. A calming neutral interior color palette perfectly showcases the majesty of the home’s surroundings. This family home, beloved by generations, epitomizes the the best of mountain living. Even the “neighbors” love to drop by for a visit!
I am so thankful to have been allowed to share this gorgeous piece of paradise with you and to the homeowners for so graciously opening their doors to Brookside On Main!
Majestic, inviting, home.
