A DREAM IN THE WEST
MOOSE HILL IN WYOMING
Few have the chance to experience life in the pristine West.
Even fewer have a chance to own a piece of it.
Your dream will begin when you land at the Jackson Hole Airport, the only airport in the country that is located within a National Park. As you step off the plane, you will see the majestic Grand Teton Mountains. A 55 mile drive along the Snake River, up the Hoback River and Hoback Canyon, a designated Wild and Scenic River and Scenic Byway, you will arrive at the private driveway of MOOSE HILL.
Three magniﬁcant mountain ranges (Wyoming, Gros Ventre, and Wind River) can be seen as you turn off the highway. While you drive through beautiful aspen and pine forest you may encounter Antelope, Deer, Moose, up in the sky Bald Eagle, Hawks, Falcons, many birds, on the ground Ruffed Grouse, Chipmunks, Squirrels, Weasels, Foxes and little furry creatures will scurry in all directions.
The large north and south wings of this inviting 4 bedroom, 4 bath home stand out in this private and tranquil setting of wildﬂowers and aspen forest. Columbine, Lupine, Sticky Geranium, Indian Paintbrush, Hare Bell and Fireweed abound. Pine Siskins, Cassin's Finches, Grosbeaks, Black Capped Chickadees, Juncos, Tanagers, Western Bluebirds, Steller's Jays, Cedar Waxwings are a birdwatchers delight. A pair of resident Great Gray Owls are glimpsed quite often. Sandhill Cranes nest in the meadows and can be heard most early summer mornings with their prehistoric sounding calls. While relaxing on the upper decks the Hummingbirds provide a special entertainment. An eclectic collection of some 30 birdhouses around the property house birds and chipmunks most of the year. MOOSE HILL has its own nature walk partly lit by soft lighting in the trees.
Moving the dream inside, the western mountain lifestyle motif welcomes you immediately, looking at the barn wood walls and the soft light from behind the reclaimed metal wall art. To your left is the "chef's delight" kitchen with Viking appliances, granite counter tops, hickory hardwood ﬂoors, and soft accent lighting over and under the cabinets. A walk-in pantry with freezer is nearby. Off to the side is the restful breakfast nook. On the other side of the kitchen is the formal dining room, with beautiful tiled ﬂoor, barrel vault faux brick ceiling, stereo system and more windows to watch the forest wildlife. It is important to note that this home was completely upgraded / remodeled in 2009.
Going upstairs in the south wing you ﬁnd the living area and master bedroom suite, both having cathedral ceilings, open trusses, and large windows all around allowing an expansive view. In the living area hickory hardwood ﬂooring, while beautiful, also holds up well to children and pets, and the extremely efficient Danish Jydepejsen wood stove adds warmth and ambiance. Two outdoor decks are accessible from the living area for your morning coffee, lounging, and grilling.
Plank cut travertine tile transitions from the living area to the warm wool carpet in the master bedroom. A large jetted tub with granite surround and windows allows a relaxing bath while watching the birds in the trees. Another Danish wood burning stove is in the master sitting area in front of the ﬂoor to ceiling windows. A wall with a fabulous iris stained glass window separates the sitting area from the master bed area. Top to bottom windows, at the foot of the bed, give the feeling of being in a treehouse. The bedroom has clothes, linen closets, and a separate vanity, and the real stunner is a walk-in master closed with its own windows and spectacular view.
Now, going to the north wing, on the downstairs level you will enjoy a living area with large screen television and surround sound, built in bookcases, and a third Danish wood burning stove. This living area can also be used as a guest suite with pull out queen bed from the couch and its own 3/4 bath. Adjacent is a storage and washer / dryer area. But most importantly, for the wine connoisseur, there is a climate controlled wine cellar, ﬁnished in reclaimed oak wood, capable of holding more than a couple thousand bottles.
The upstairs area also has two large bedrooms currently used as "his" and "her" ofﬁces. Another sitting / living area with a ﬁreplace could be an entire guest suite, making three bedrooms in the north wing. Here are two bathrooms, one being a "jack and jill" bath connecting two bedrooms and plenty of windows in every direction. The west side bedroom could actually be a master suite of its own. This suite has its own bath. It also has doors to an outside patio / sitting area looking at the water feature where moose and birds come to drink.
Detached is an insulated and heated two car garage with workshop area. A seven foot high, wooden fence encloses the dog retreat (60 ft x 40 ft), so they can roam and play safely, while you are away in town or visiting the many attractions nearby. Further down from the home is a corral and lean-to for your horses.
Most of the exquisite furniture and furnishings can be negotiated with the sale of this home. A LMC 1500 snow cat, Polaris Ranger ATV as well as the ATV trailer comes with the sale of this home.
Although your friends might think MOOSE HILL is in the wilderness, you are only an hour's drive from shopping and excellent dining in Jackson Hole, where you may visit the National Wildlife Museum and the National Elk Refuge. Jackson Hole is also the gateway to the Grand Teton National Park and the incredible Yellowstone National Park. From Jackson Hole you will also enjoy river rafting and ﬁshing on the famous Snake River. For the winter sport enthusiast, there is world class skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King in the town of Jackson, and nearby the Grand Targhee Ski Resort. A drive of 40 minutes south of MOOSE HILL is the town of Pinedale that also offers shopping and restaurants, and attractions like the Museum of the Mountain Man, the many lakes nearby for water sports and ice ﬁshing, skiing at White Pine, endless snowmobiling, and is also the gateway to trout ﬁshing on the world famous Green River as well as the many trophy elk and moose hunting areas.
MOOSE HILL truly is a dream come true. Your Wyoming home offers sophisticated comfort in a private haven bordering the Bridger Teton National Forest where hiking, water sports, ﬁshing, hunting and winter sports are literally outside your door. Summer will be here soon, what a great place to spend it on MOOSE HILL with your family and friends! Even better is all of the winter holidays!
