Modern influence and aesthetics drive new construction and remodels alike.

The sign atop Teton Pass may announce Jackson Hole as “the last of the old west,” but a markedly contemporary vision of the valley is evolving a couple thousand feet below.

As two properties on the market in Wilson illustrate—clean lines and bold material choices are increasingly becoming the vernacular of architects and homeowners seeking to provide a contrasting and modern take on the mountain home through contemporary design

Grey barnwood siding and dark metal roof provide a subtle contemporary framework for this new construction recently completed at 2463 Fish Creek Road in Wilson.

Dramatic views of the Jackson Hole valley and the “Sleeping Indian” are the focal point of a recently completed home nestled into an aspen grove at 2463 Fish Creek Road. The property provides unmatched location, privacy and scenic beauty only minutes away from the town of Wilson.

Craftsmanship and attention to detail are paramount in this home—characterized by a dark metal roof, muted grey barnwood siding, sleek interior lines and high-end finishes throughout. Interior design and exterior finishes were selected by Stockton & Shirk as a part of a collaborative team with an eye towards “giving a modern edge to a home that still felt warm and earthy,” said design team member Allison Frederick.

Central to the open floor plan is a stone fireplace with a mantle of reclaimed timber, accented with hand-hammered iron brackets and doors. “The fireplace visually grounds the living and dining spaces while the hammered iron elements are echoed throughout home,” said Frederick.

White painted alder cabinetry in the kitchen of 2463 Fish Creek Road contrasts with the rich black stained island.

The end result is a home that feels modern and refined while remaining harmonious with its place in valley.

South of Wilson in Indian Paintbrush is a bold, contemporary take on a western remodel. Exposed architectural steel, painted original logs, and warm cedar siding meld and unify under the design of local architecture firm Gilday Architects.

A unique blend of modern aesthetics merge with traditional log elements in this Indian Paintbrush home.

“The liveability and experience when inside the home is the ultimate fusion of modern simplicity and rustic design elements,” says Jake Kilgrow, listing agent and Associate Broker with Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty.

The home takes advantage of extensive floor-to-ceiling windows, hardscaping and modern landscaping improvements to extend the living area to an exterior gas fire pit—and the Tetons beyond. “A tremendous amount of thought and consideration has gone into the redesign and transformation of this home,” says Kilgrow of the remodel.
