Escape from the noise of city life at Big Rock Ranch in Jackson, Wyoming, for $21.5 million.
There’s no point in getting away from it all if the getaway isn’t something more extraordinary than day-to-day life. The advantages that come with Big Rock Ranch are so great that you might actually question where you spend most of your time going forward.
First of all, there’s the entrance, which is outfitted with the cutest signage ever. Then there’s the location: the property is in walking distance to Wilson, Wyoming (population 1,492), and situated between Teton Village and the Town of Jackson. The land itself is nothing to sneeze at—more than 73 mountain-side acres that will allow you to explore centuries-old evergreen forests, Aspen groves, and well-known Trail Creek.
But proximity to town, sweet signage, and a lush landscape are just the beginning. This vacation spot also comes with plenty of opportunity for both conservation and development. Let’s say you’re interested in building a large lodge that can accommodate generations to come—or several homes to keep the peace and ensure that relatives continue coming for years to come. You can do either because the property is comprised of three contiguous land parcels, each of which provides two building sites. That means you can build up to six residences with 10,000 feet of development rights per parcel.
No need to rush the estate planning, though. The land comes with a super charming two-bedroom, two-bathroom circa-1977 log cabin where you can enjoy 360-degree views of the Southern Range, Fish Creek Ranch, and the Glory Bowl. You’ll also stay busy with daily hikes, ski time, and walks into Wilson where you and the family can draw straws for parcels over drinks at Nora’s Homestyle Kitchen & Bar.
