Area Spotlight: Teton Pines Shines Year Round

A variety of ownership options and amenities define a valley favorite.

by Staff Writers

The Teton Pines Resort and Country Club sits between Wilson and Teton Village in the heart of Jackson Hole’s “Westbank.” “The Pines,” as it is known locally, offers residential country club living that caters to members and guests alike via year round amenities.

During the winter season, the Pines transforms its Arnold Palmer-designed golf course and in-house pro shop into the Teton Pines Nordic Center with sixteen kilometers of groomed trails for both classic and skate skiing techniques. The full-service ski shop provides rental equipment, retail shop, ski tuning, lessons and serves as the center for wintertime operations.

Teton Pines offers several types of residential offerings amidst the resort’s more than 360 acres: Estate Homes, Cluster Homes, and Residence Club ownership.

A truly timeless Teton Pines estate is currently available on Greens Place. Surrounded by a wrap-around pond on two sides and sited on one-and-a-half lots to create an incredibly private atmosphere within walking distance of the clubhouse. The remarkable stone masterpiece features unobstructed views across the water to the eighteenth fairway and beyond to the Tetons. Inside, the home features and great room with vaulted ceilings and expansive windows, a main-floor master suite in a private wing, and numerous indoor and exterior entertaining spaces for year round enjoyment.

Also on the eighteenth fairway, 3260 N. Teton Pines Drive features one-level living, an open concept, and contemporary finishes. The five bedroom home was recently remodelled and is bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

3260 N. Teton Pines Drive offers one-level living on a private, landscaped streamside lot with outdoor entertaining spaces.

A Cluster Home on White Pine Lane and the eleventh fairway provides protected views north to the Tetons while offering turn-key convenience. Recently remodelled,  this home now benefits from an enhanced entry, a dining room expansion and the addition of an upstairs powder room to complete its 2,451 square feet of elegant living space.

Those seeking to build their dream home in Jackson Hole need look no further than Estate Lot 25. At .62 acres, this perimeter lot on the western edge of the Pines is one of only a few building sites remaining. The flat, treed lot features sweeping mountain views  to the west and extraordinary potential.

The ultimate ease of ownership comes via the Residence Club at Teton Pines, providing six weeks of annual use that includes three summer and three winter weeks of scheduled use. One share is currently available on the market for a two-bedroom, 1,764 square foot unit of worry-free ownership in Jackson Hole. Additionally, owners of the Teton Club at the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort enjoy full membership privileges to the Teton Pines Country Club while in residence.

Winter at Teton Pines sees the transformation of its Arnold Palmer-designed golf course into 16 km of groomed cross country trails.

The winter season at Teton Pines makes for an ideal time to view wildlife within the valley. Winter-ranging moose and mule deer make frequent visits to the neighborhood, and it is not uncommon to find their tracks along the trail or to see them browsing  amidst the aspen and willows. Resident and migrating waterfowl linger in the ice-free sections of the Pines’ ponds and waterways, and may include swans, geese and a variety of ducks.

Beyond the amenities of the club itself, Teton Pines is only moments away from the convenient shopping and dining of the Westbank Center, five miles to Teton Village and fewer than eight miles from Jackson’s town square. Join them for a ski and a bowl of the clubhouse’s signature chili this winter and discover the beauty and simplicity of ownership in Teton Pines.

Timeless Mountain Estate on Rendezvous Mountain

Refined mountain living adjacent to National Forest in Jackson Hole.

A stone privacy gate near the southern end of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort marks the entry to the paved and lighted, winding driveway leading to a truly magnificent mountain estate in Jackson Hole. An end-of-the-road location affords the ultimate balance of access to the amenities of nearby Teton Village, while a total of 83 quiet, wooded acres provide the utmost privacy, and direct access to National Forest and neighboring ski trails.    

The serene setting serves as habitat for moose, elk, deer and a variety of native western birds, and provides the quiet connection to nature and wildlife that exemplifies the region. Private multi-season pathways wind through a mix of Douglas fir, aspen and pine trees and beyond into thousands of acres of the adjacent Bridger-Teton National Forest, if so desired.

83 private acres on the southern flanks of Rendezvous Mountain create a serene setting unlike any other in Jackson Hole.

The expansive property and the southern Teton Range serve as the backdrop for a 10,500 square foot, three-level residence designed in the character of a timeless alpine chalet—ideally suited to its mountain environs.   

“The spacious residence is a masterpiece of design, construction, style and quality,” according to Mercedes Huff, who co-lists the property for Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty. Constructed to the highest quality, the main lodge features double exterior walls; rustic fixtures throughout; finishes of mahogany, oak, stone, imported brass and tile; and terraces on all levels. Seven wood burning fireplaces adorn the home from within the kitchen, library, dining room and several of the bedrooms. 

The large and inviting master suite is located on the third level and features a sitting area around the fireplace, a dressing room, a luxurious marble and tile bathroom, and French doors opening to a private terrace. Views on three sides encompass an overview of the valley across to the Sleeping Indian and up Rendezvous Mountain. Also on this level is a two-room suite with a sitting room, as well as an inviting corner bedroom with a fireplace and terrace access.

The second level of the residence features a large kitchen with a fireplace and French doors to a large, wrap-around terrace.  Other comfortable areas include an intimate dining room with a stone fireplace, candle sconces and outdoor access; a peaceful library with fireplace and a television, if needed; a generous office provides privacy and quiet and two sets of French doors to the terrace overlooking the valley.

A corner fireplace and large widows create an inviting living space with plenty of natural light on the second floor.

At the end of the wide gallery hallway leading to these spaces is the main gathering room, which runs the full width of the home. It is  currently furnished to provide a small group area around the fireplace at one end and a larger seating area at the other end. Natural light fills the space through expansive windows on three sides and illuminates rustic, bright, plaster walls and warm, wide-plank flooring. Antique and reclaimed beams accent the home throughout its living spaces, providing both character and contrast.

The large entry foyer on the ground level provides access to the lower hallway leading to a large mirrored workout room, hot tub, steam room, sauna, shower and a powder room. A charming corner bedroom with a full bathroom, and an additional office are found on this level. A laundry/housekeeping room and a big “mud room” are conveniently accessed from the three-car garage. A two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with a kitchenette, fireplace, sitting room and outdoor access is also located on this level.

The substantial mechanical room in this residence includes two Buderus oil furnaces, as well as a constant-ready backup generator.  The home and grounds of this estate have been maintained in immaculate condition by a property manager and staff who have been with the property since its construction.

A second homesite of approximately two acres provides for the potential of an additional residence, and currently houses a separate 1,233 square foot garage and workshop.

No single Jackson Hole property offers the superb position, convenient access to Teton Village amenities, and unmatched privacy afforded by this remarkable 83-acre parcel. The property is shown only by prearranged appointment with one of the listing agents and the property manager.
