In Touch With Nature and Only Ten Minutes to Downtown Jackson Hole, a Family Builds a Stunning Home With Soaring Views in Glass, Wood, and Stone.
If you live in a setting as naturally beautiful as Jackson Hole, Wyo., it is understandable that you would want to bring as much of the outdoor aesthetic inside as possible. Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living is precisely what one Connecticut couple accomplished with their retirement home, which is part of the luxurious Homes at Amangani. “It’s rather unique in that it has the feel of being very much rural and looking at the mountains, yet it’s only 10 minutes from the grocery store,” says the owner, who was the architect and interior designer on the project.
The uniquely located lot they selected was rather difficult to build on because it is situated on a steep slope that drops off in two directions. But the imposing views of the Teton Mountain Range and layers of landscape–including rugged buttes that change in both color and texture with the seasons– offered the perfect private setting for their home that is at once modern, rustic, Western, and Asian-inspired. “You could just sit and stare out the windows all day long!” exclaims the owner, who wanted the views to be the focus of his design.
