Jackson Land & Cattle ranch is put on sale this week with a price tag of $175 million, which makes it America’s most expensive home. The 1,750-acre ranch in the heart of Jackson Hole,Wyoming is owned by Richard Fields, a casino and resort developer, but not for long. The ranch is listed with John C. Pierce of Hall & Hall, a ranch real estate firm.
Only three minutes away from downtown Jackson, this large estate includes lush greens pastures with separate areas for animal grazing and even horse riding, three fishing ponds, over 800 acres of irrigated meadows and the 52 stall equestrian barn besides the view of the Tenton range of Rocky Mountains. The architect of this ranch is the famous Jonathan Foote who is known of his design work with distressed wood, glass and Montana Moss Rock which has been used in plenty within the barn.
You can fish and ride and hunt and you’re still only three minutes from downtown Jackson Hole, says Jonathan Pierce, the property’s listing agent.
The main house is an old barn that’s been converted into a quaint three bedroom residence, while the guest accommodation has 4 rooms along with separate living spaces for staff members of the ranch. This stunning estate stands as a landmark of natural beauty encompassed into a single piece of real estate property.
It should be noted that Jackson Land & Cattle ranch carries entitlements for up to 35 homesites. That means if a buyer doesn’t want all that land for himself, he can subdivide and sell parcels of it. Yet it would be good if that doesn’t happen.
We are dealing with a very capable seller who is hoping for a conservation outcome on the property, although certainly not dictating that, explains Pierce. It’s a signature property that the entire community would love to see someone come along that shares Mr. Fields’ appreciation for the open space. [Hall and Hall]
