To be an owner and your own Guide, here is what you need to know
Jackson Hole is not cheap; especially on the West Bank where Tucker Ranch: La Segunda Vida is located. However, if you are looking for something that you can’t really find any where else, it is worth the price and investment made. Jackson is expensive both for the life style that it offers, and the fact that only 3% of the land in the county is in private hands.
The owners of 3440 Tucker Ranch Road are asking 6,750,000 for LaSegunda Vida. We would however with all due respect point out we are not selling just a lot here, and it is not a distressed sale. So give us an opportunity to show you all you would need to fall in love with this Western property. You would have the time to talk to some contractors and get them to work over the winter while inside on any changes to make the property your home.
Jackson Hole Lifestyle
What you are buying is a life style, and 4.66 acres with woods, pastures, and a full view of the Grand. You are buying a Main House constructed in 1998 of 14-16 inch dead standing lodge pole pines, a 32 foot vaulted ceiling and 3660 sq feet living area complete with a wrap around deck. In addition, you are purchasing a 1000 ft Guest House constructed in 1994, also made out of solid lodge pole pines with wood chinking, a heated 3 car garage, and hobby room, a 1000 sq ft caretakers’ unit with another completely self sufficient apartment and a 2000 sq ft barn built in 2000 with 3 enclosed horse stalls, a 700 sq ft storage loft, a tack room and a wash room.
The habitable square footage calculates to be 5785 which on a price per square foot is very fairly priced at $1166 particularly for a custom log home.
There are 5 separate structures on the property, including a summer kitchen and green house, with no weeds growing on the path. Everything was designed to consider ones’ privacy, and comfort, instilled with a lodge atmosphere close enough for family and friends to be “at home.” When the skiers are in town, it sleeps as many as 16 to 20 people– without resorting to an air mattress, or stringing hammocks in the summer kitchen or greenhouse either. ( This is managed with bunk beds and sofa beds when everyone shows up at once. It is, however, a little cozy in the 6 person steam bath.)
This property was built consistent with the character found in Jackson Hole, with the character found among our neighbors, and with respect for the land and the individual. The environment, the views and the lifestyle are things for which you will never tire. You might however want to put your own stamp on the accommodations themselves.
The owners are currently 70 years old, and are perfectly happy to remain on the Jackson Hole property till the kids take it over. We can’t do it without downsizing, and employing more people to help keep the wild flower beds from well, going wild, or occasionally having to mend the fences, cutting more firewood to keep the fires burning—all of which cuts into my fishing , getting out on my Harley, riding Wilbur around the Lake, and or just watching the snow fall without worrying about plowing the driveway.
