Teton Skyline

“Three acres at the end of a cul de sac totally surrounded by trees, Teton views, and 10 minutes from downtown Jackson: I don’t know if that exists anywhere else in the valley,” says Phil Stevenson of the 8,536-square-foot Teton Skyline home currently on the market. Stevenson, one of founders of The Clear Creek Group, has been involved in the Jackson Hole real estate market since 2005. “And then the home itself is wonderful.”

Built in 1982 and completely updated about six years ago, Teton Skyline is located in the Skyline Ranch subdivision, which was one of the first neighborhoods developed in Jackson Hole. Set in a rolling landscape just east of the Snake River, Skyline Ranch is a 10-minute drive from downtown Jackson, 5-minutes from Wilson, and 15-minutes from Teton Village. A bike and pedestrian pathway connects the neighborhood to all three communities, as well as to the valley’s elementary, middle, and high schools. “It’s a pretty ideal location,” Stevenson says.

“Because this is an older house, it has a lot of interesting features you’d never find in a contemporary construction,” Stevenson says. “This screened-in gazebo that is part of the main deck is one of them. It’s such a fanciful retreat within the home, and a great place to read or play cards. It is a very special space.”

Included among Teton Skyline’s six bedrooms is a single bedroom guest apartment/caretaker’s residence. This apartment is above the garage and detached from the main house (although you can get from this apartment to the main house under cover). It even has its own driveway. “Guests or caretakers can come and go without having to bother anyone in the main house,” Stevenson says. In addition to the sitting area shown here, the apartment has a bedroom suite and kitchen. The best feature of the bathroom? A deep-soaking copper bathtub.

Teton Skyline has six bedrooms including this master suite. Three guest rooms are on the home’s lower floor while this master and a junior master are on the main level. “It’s designed so that the master suite, and junior master, are private,” says Stevenson.

A breakfast nook in the main kitchen is cozy and intimate. In addition to this main kitchen, which features professional-level appliances and finishes, Teton Skyline also has a chef’s kitchen. “The chef’s kitchen is nicer than many people’s primary kitchen,” Stevenson says. “These are part of what makes this a great home for entertaining.”

“This might be the nicest home theater in Jackson Hole,” Stevenson says. “It is tiered and just extraordinary.” The home theater is on the main floor with two bedroom suites, the great room and two kitchens.

In addition to a north and west L-shaped deck off the main floor, Teton Skyline has a lower level deck with a hot tub. Mature landscaping gives it privacy. “The decks easily double the amount of entertaining space in this home,” Stevenson says. “Our summers are short, but when the weather allows, it is so nice to have outdoor living spaces.”

“This is a wonderful entertaining home,” Stevenson says. “The great room (shown here) is stunning, for its décor and for its views.” Teton Skyline is being sold fully furnished; this includes a collection of western and wildlife art that suits the home’s style and Jackson Hole. Much of the furniture dates to the remodel that was done about six years ago.

Adventurous guests can opt to stay in the prairie wagon set in the lawn in front of Teton Skyline. The wagon has been customized and has a bed, oven and a sink in it. “This has to be one of the most interesting guest rooms in the valley,” Stevenson says.
