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.

The Bar BC Ranch

 

 
One of the most exclusive properties in Jackson Hole and for that part the Rocky Mountain region is the Bar BC Ranch. I wanted to take a few moments to update the recent activity on the Bar BC Ranch and at the same time just give some general information on the ranch itself.
 
The Bar BC Ranch is one of the premier ranches in the Rocky Mountain West. With a rich history, spectacular scenery and quiet ambiance, the ranch is one of the most unique real estate offerings in the Jackson Hole Valley. Located in the “Spring Creek Valley” and atop the “Gros Ventre North Butte” the ranch and its’ real estate offerings are arguably in the best location in the valley. Each property has access to the Snake River and has remarkable Teton views. With a limited number of 35 to 50 acre home sites carefully placed on 1,400 acres, Bar BC Ranch is an understated retreat that respects the environment and maintains the natural habitat for elk, moose, deer, and native cutthroat trout.
 
Investors, Home Builders and Land Buyers that are looking for an exclusive location in Jackson Hole have found that Bar BC Ranch is a special place. Bordered by the Snake River (west) and the Gros Ventre River (north), homesites feature rolling hills, meadowlands, and the outstanding Teton views. The Bar BC Ranch is close to downtown Jackson and Teton Village but is far enough off the beaten path to give homeowners and resident wildlife a sense of seclusion. There is even an 11 acre pond located on the property where trumpeter swans and waterfowl have taken up residency.
 
During summer of 2007 there were 2 closed sales and there is currently 1 pending transaction. Initially the Ranch offered 19 lots of which 9 are either sold or are pending. The remaining ranch sites currently available are: The 6,000 square foot Ranch Estate House on 70 acres along with ranches 1,5,6,7,9,11,12,13 and 14. The ranch offers a paved road system, underground power and utilities, and a water system. Price range of remaining inventory $5,900,000 – $17,000,000.
