Mountain Home With Grand Teton Views

The spectacular home sits on its own atop a butte outside Jackson Hole, meaning there's not a thing in between it and its majestic surroundings.

Mountain Home Overview

Located in Saddle Butte, just above Jackson Hole, the house has unparalleled views in all directions.

Contemporary Exterior With Mountain View

The 3,048 square foot house was built by John Jennings and Peak Builders. “It blends in well with the landscapes and the flat roof pitch allows for real subtlety," says Jennings. "The rooftop deck is my favorite. Hanging out there on top of the world is a special spot."

Rustic Living Room With Snowy Mountain View

The home's great room opens out onto scenic terraces. "There are more windows in this house than what’s being built today," says architect Chris Lee. "Somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the house is windows."

Rustic Living Room With Black Fireplace

The living room has two seating areas, a comfy sectional by the fireplace and a pair of leather chairs just behind the sofa. The black metal-clad, two-sided fireplace separates the space creating a more intimate dining area without obstructing the view.

Rustic Dining Room With Candle Chandelier

The home's original owner found a chandelier that appears like a collection of glowing candles, adding an earthy and warm effect to the already organic lighting design.

Rustic Great Room With Aqua Armchair

Floors are walnut. Built-in storage can be found throughout the house, both closed and open.

Stairwell With Square Window

At first glance, the square mountain scene seems like a beautiful photograph. But no, it's real life...a window framing the view! The stairwell ledge is a showcase for the homeowner's collections and art.

Rustic Vignette With Bison Skull

Antiques and a bison skull create a western-style vignette in a nook of this mountaintop home.

Rustic Main Bedroom With White Bed

“We used top quality windows," says architect Chris Lee, "and with the house being super-insulated, the home is incredibly energy efficient despite the size of the windows." In the main bedroom, the glass seamlessly connects in the corner, adding to the magical wraparound effect. Operable side windows open to welcome in the fresh mountain air.

Contemporary Rustic Bedroom With Mountain Views

“We did corner glass windows in the great room and main bedroom," says Chris Lee, the architect. "They were a bit of a technological challenge, but the result is outstanding. From the inside the intersection of the two windows is invisible, but from the outside, you see a mullion.”

Shower With Mountain View

With views this glorious, frame them in with windows and voila! Instant perfect art! Here, the luxe walk-in shower looks out onto the mountaintops.

Contemporary Exterior at Night

The lower floors of this Jackson Hole, Wyoming home are concrete where it’s buried into the hillside and framed with a cut stone veneer around the windows. “There’s lots of glass," says architect Chris Lee, "and where we do show wood, it’s white birch and cedar with stain. The soffits are hemlock and the upper roof is EPDM membrane with an ipe deck."

Come sunset, the rooftop terrace is the place to be, watching the light change over the Tetons.

Contemporary Mountain House With Driveway

The wonders of this Jackson Hole home are many: From the abundant wildlife to 360-degree views of the Snake River Range to the Cathedral’s silhouettes from Grand Teton National Park to its close proximity to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The design was careful to maximize views, include a highly-functional floor plan and offer comfortable guest rooms for the owner's grown children.
