It’s How You Live…Spring Hollow Ranch

 

Today I am going to update everyone on a wonderful development in Teton Valley Idaho — Spring Hollow Ranch.  I work with the developers (a great group/family) that have developed an incredible parcel of land into what I believe is the finest development in the Teton Valley.  There are no golf courses, ski runs, spas, monstrous "spec" homes just beautiful landscape and a sense of privacy rarely seen.  The property itself is one of the most stunning properties I have had the chance to visit, let alone represent.  There is an emotion and a sense of belonging that Spring Hollow Ranch offers that is almost impossible to explain with out actually experiencing and "touching" the property.  Below I do my best but if you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to call or email me.  For more information on Spring Hollow Ranch click the link.

 

I. Teton Views and Room to Roam 

Mountain views and wide-open spaces: It’s what western living is all about, and you can find both in Spring Hollow Ranch. Once a barley farm, Spring Hollow Ranch features rolling hills, superb views of the Teton Range and one of the more unique wetland areas in the valley – Spring Hollow Pond. The development consists of 50 residential vacant lots varying in size but averaging 15 acres with a grand total of 880 acres. Protected, recreational space equals 119 acres which allows for residents to enjoy the entire property. Hiking trails interconnect throughout the property and the Spring Hollow Pond has been dedicated for the recreational use of all the homeowners.

 
II. A Well Planned, Quality Development
 

Spring Hollow Ranch is a well planned, high quality development that features paved roads, buried utilities, landscaped entries, beautiful water features, an interconnecting trail system and incredible open spaces. Unlike a lot of developments that dedicate open space but then do not provide access to it, Spring Hollow Ranch has created a wonderful trail system that allows homeowners to hike, bike, horseback ride, cross country ski and walk through the development. From all the available lots, owners can have access to the trail system and have miles of recreational choices to choose from. Spring Hollow Ranch also provides access to the “Rails to Trails” which is in the development stage but eventually will provide for miles of snowmobile and bike trails.

 
III. Location
 

Spring Hollow Ranch is located in Tetonia, Idaho which is in the northern tier of the Teton Valley. The property it self is located on a grouping of large hills that provide most of the home sites commanding views of not just the Teton Range but of the Big Hole Range, Yellowstone and the Sun Valley Mountain Range. Spring Hollow is just 10 minutes from Driggs and 30 minutes from the Grand Targhee Mountain Resort. Jackson Hole is about 1 hour from the development so a day in town is just a quick trip over Teton Pass.   If fishing is high on your list, Spring Hollow is centrally located to take advantage of some of the finest fly fishing in the west. The “canyon” of the Teton River is just a 10 minute drive, the South Fork of the Snake, Henry’s Fork are within an hours drive. Restaurants are opening their doors almost monthly in the Teton Valley providing residents numerous, quality choices. Hiking in the National Forest is within a 5 minute drive. Golf – multiple choices in the Teton Valley. 

IV.  Availability

Currently there are lots available in both Phase 1 and Phase 2.  To date there have been 7 sales.  There are some incredible values in all price ranges.  There are lots available for as low as $295,000 and as high as $470,000.  Acreages vary as explained above but most lots are in the 8 acres to 20 acres size.  Homeowners have the ability to create their own legacy property.  The building restrictions are very flexible with endless possibilities.  For actively listed properties visit www.TetonValleyExperts.com and for information on the Jackson Hole Market please visit www.JacksonHoleExperts.com.
