House of the Day: Where the Deer and Antelope Play
While it doesn't carry a price tag quite as mind-blowing as its neighbor (nearby Jackson Land and Cattle Ranch
is listed at $175 million), this $100-million ranch near Jackson Hole, Wyo., known as "Walton Ranch
," still is certainly one of the most expensive properties on the American market.
The 1,848-acre property nestles between Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks, and plays host to a rich array of wildlife. Elk, bear, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, antelope and deer roam its expansive woodlands and meadows, which stretch along three miles of Snake River. And even with all that nature at hand, the ranch affords residents easy access to world-class ski resorts and vibrant nightlife -- it's just five miles to Jackson Hole.
To protect the property's pristine environment, the former owners placed it under conservation easement in 1983. That distinguishes it from neighbor Jackson Land and Cattle Ranch
, whose heftier price stems partly from the fact that it has 35 separate lots open for development. Walton Ranch is a functioning cattle ranch and hay farm with a two-story main house and manager's complex containing two homes, bunkhouse outbuildings, sheds, barns, and, of course, corrals.
