Nestled against the foothills of the majestic Teton Mountain Range, the 120-acre Elk Range Ranch represents a truly unique turnkey end of the road offering in what is known as the quiet side of the Tetons. Located in Teton County, Wyoming, and just 8 miles from the heart of Main Street in Driggs and 40 miles from Jackson Hole, the Elk Range Ranch is one of the few remaining larger, intact land holdings in the highly sought after neighborhood of Alta, Wyoming. With 1 mile of shared boundary with Targhee National Forest and BLM, the ranch is essentially an extension of Yellowstone providing abundant wildlife which include elk, mule deer, moose, bear wolves and other native species. The 120-acres (4 individually deeded parcels) are comprised of lush, irrigated meadows, the creek corridors of Dry Creek and Bustle Creek, rolling hillsides leading to quaking aspen groves and healthy stands of dark timber, and big views across the valley of the Big Hole Mountain Range and Snake River Range. The well-appointed improvements at the ranch headquarters include a custom built 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath 3,871 sqft log home and 2 bedroom, 1 bath 1,500 sqft log guest home. A large pond behind the main home along with meticulously maintained lawns and gardens create a truly spectacular setting. Two classic style barns and well-designed paddocks for working the various livestock currently on the ranch complete this set of improvements. Down the drive from the headquarters is a large hay barn, calving shed and a greenhouse located along the banks of Bustle Creek. The Elk Range Ranch offers the highly sought-after combination of a viable agricultural operation and world class recreation with direct "out the back gate" access to millions of acres in the adjacent Targhee National Forest which eventually connect to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Ideally situated for the winter sports enthusiasts, the ranch is just 10 miles from Grand Targhee Ski Resort and 45 miles from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. In summary, the Elk Range Ranch represents an exceptional recreational and agricultural ranch and family retreat.
