SH10 is a handsome, gabled home in a spacious residential neighbourhood just south of Jackson. A beautiful flat yard fringed by wild grasses aprons the house. This luxury Jackson Hole vacation rental feels wonderfully private and very grand, a small treasure tucked in a copse of slender aspens.
The arched front door opens into a two-storey foyer, where a peeled log staircase curves up and away and an elk antler chandelier hangs from the double height ceiling. Straight ahead is the vaulted great room, which sets the tone of rustic opulence continued throughout the house. In the dining area, six upholstered chairs surround a polished table, and ornate draperies hang from branches. A stone-floored butler’s pantry adjoins the room.
A sophisticated office is just off the foyer. Leather armchairs and a fringed ottoman stand upon a zebra rug. Light from the stone fireplace flickers across the built-in bookcases and the window seat.
The family room links the great room and the kitchen. Warm and welcoming in the extreme, deep leather sofas and hide-trimmed club chairs face a tall stone fireplace. A bay of huge windows frames the pretty yard. A flat-screen television is mounted in a tall cabinet; doors close to hide the television when not in use.
SH10’s luxurious, stone-floored kitchen has a huge centre island topped in gleaming granite. Upholstered stools offer a perch for conversing with the family chef, sampling hors d’oeuvres and spreading out the morning paper. French doors beside the breakfast table open onto the patio.
A stone-framed door off of the great room leads to the master bedroom, a big, carpeted room with a high vaulted ceiling. A dramatic king-size bed faces a chateau-style fireplace. The flat-screen television mounted in a corner of the room can be seen from the bed and the sitting area as well.
The house has four grand guest bedrooms, all on the second floor of the property, connected by a loft-like walkway and small sitting area over the great room. Each bedroom is supremely comfortable, with soft carpeting, a big bed, a place to sit, and western décor. The first guest room has French doors leading to a private deck, and a walk-through closet, which leads to an en-suite bathroom. A small anteroom makes an ideal, separate-but-connected spot for a crib.
The second guest room has a king bed flanked by matching side tables, leather-shaded antler lamps and a pair of beautiful equine paintings. This room shares a bathroom with the upstairs game room. The third and fourth guest bedrooms both have queen beds, closets, and private bathrooms.
The truly fabulous recreation room and home movie theatre lie above the three-car garage. This is possibly the most popular spot in the house, a playroom for all ages, with a full-size pool table, a game table, a stocked bar, deep couch, television, an ice cream freezer and even a cotton candy spinner. Double doors open to the home theatre, where big, leather recliners face an enormous flat-screen television, and a popcorn machine stands at the ready. Heavy drapes block the sun, and a state-of-the-art sound system makes watching a movie as much experience as entertainment.
A wide stone patio extends off of the back of the house, edged by a low stone wall. Adirondack chairs look out towards the shallow, smooth-running creek. There is a gas grill and an outdoor dining table on the patio for whiling away the long, golden summer nights of Jackson Hole, and a hot tub fine for any season and just about any weather.
