Property description

This beautifully secluded 4.66 acre property in Tucker Ranch is truly one-of-a-kind. Enjoy tireless view of the "Grand" overlooking the open pastures for our horses and the creeks and ponds. This property is located in Tucker Ranch, on the Exclusive West Bank of Jackson Hole.

Bring your family on vacation or stay year round, lay out the buffalo robes as a welcome mat for friends or clients. As an owner you will have access to a privately stocked 35 acre Tucker Lake, and if looking for the big fishing holes take a short 500 yard walk and enjoy our private access to the Snake River. The property itself encompasses a compound retreat of 5 separate structures centered on the lodge pole pine Main House, and surrounded by a detached log Guest House/3 car Garage, a Summer outdoor Kitchen featuring professional appliances, a heated cedar Greenhouse with water, and a barn with three stalls, hay storage, loft, tack and wash rooms, and a 785 sq ft caretakers apartment. During ski season as many as 16 people have slept comfortably here. The property was designed for privacy with the three larger structures being fully self sufficient accommodations, but close enough to the Main House or Summer Kitchen for entertaining and family gatherings, which has hosted several 200 person events. The property comes with virtually unlimited water rights dating from the 1800s, with water as cold as ice and crystal clear from 2 wells.

Incredible wildlife across the property: enjoy views of bald eagles that nest right off the property line, the herds of elk, Mama Moose and her twins, the horses out in the pasture, coyotes, foxes, deer, squirrels, chipmunks, humming birds, owls, and the occasional bear seeking refuge from a fire. You will soon realize that you really do live in your own park, yet surrounded by the rival national park system.


Home Features

  • The principal construction of the Main House and the Guest House are 14-16 inch lodge pole pine logs, now aged with a beautiful patina. There are hardwood floors, chandeliers, and lots of wall space for our art collections. The Main House has a 50 ton 32 ft RiverRock fireplace in the middle of the Great Room, and architectually is the center of the house both aesthetically and structurally. It is surrounded by a modern kitchen, including a commercial pizza oven, granite, a large island, breakfast nook, a dining room and library, and a Living Room with large picture windows overlooking the pond and centered on the the Grand. In addition , there is a Sun Room which from time to time has served as an orchid atrium, an excercise room, a day room, our bird room, and a breakfast area.
  • There is an office with walnut cabinets, built in, with custom desk, and places for 4 monitors, computers, printers as well as surround sound equipment. The living quarters consist of two Master Suites, and baths, with the downstairs also having Jacuzzis, steam rooms, and seated shower. Up the log staircase, is the art loft which likewise serves many uses ranging from TV room, pool table, but mostly as our spare bedroom, sharing the bath with the Master Suite upstairs. Wooden Decks and a complete Summer Kitchen complete the area around the bedroom and Great Room.
  • The detached Guest House is also a log home with two separate bedrooms, and a Jack and Jill bath and vanity area, its own kitchen and eating area, a cast iron fireplace, and rough sawn fir floors, and wood chinking. As many as 12 people have managed to squeeze into the Guest House with the use of two bunk beds and a sofa bed addition.
  • The Barn, this is actually the biggest structure on the property with a foot print of just under 2000 sq ft. It is special as this is where Wilbur lived along with his mares. Originally 6 of the 30 individual lots were allowed and designated horse properties. Keeping in mind that today any new subdivision must be on the order of minimum 35 acres, to find a 5 acre horse property on the West Bank is virtually impossible. The Barn covenants further allow that the barn may be placed any where on the property, including outside the building envelopes, so long as you sought approval first of any neighbor who could see the structure, and 2 with approval of the site committee of the Board. We chose a barn location near the Main House, given that we winter here most of the time and kept the horses. Some of the original owners of the horse lots in Tucker have in fact given up their rights to a barn and horses in favor of getting to construct a guest house outside of the the envelope, making 5 acre horse properties even more scarce. We have been asked by many potential buyers about tearing the barn down since they had no interest in maintaining the designation, and for one individual even took down the round pen since we are no longer training, and had it re-sodded. Most folks that come look at our property are looking at it as a horse property option, given that you do not have to own horses; we started out renting horses for the summer and granddaughters for years. I can only add that for years we had 4 horses, and of course our pastures do not produce enough grass nor alfalfa so we have to buy feed, and someone went riding every day. We have 3 miles of common area trails around Tucker Lake, or you may choose to ride up on the Snake River dyke if you want to open and close gates since we live next door to a cattle ranch. We also frequently trailered the horses up to the Parks for day trips and picnics.
  • Also includes 800 sq ft caretaker's apartment. This unit is self sufficient. Some architects have proposed converting part of the downstairs into a garage, and taking the existing 3 car garage and store room under the Guest House apartment and remodeling into bedrooms and baths, and joining the detached Guest House to the Main House, while making the current half of the barn the "new" garage, and increasing the size of the barn unit.
