An extraordinary footprint in one of the coziest and most convenient neighborhoods in Jackson, this linear, sunlit 1,561 square foot home offers instant privacy and community.
Morning and evening light welcomes you into a large family room with a vaulted ceiling that serves as the hub of the house. Take a step out onto a covered back porch, which extends the private living space by 400-square feet and leads to a fenced-in back yard. Aside from a raised garden bed, tilled for vegetable seeds, the well-manicured lawn is a blank slate, ripe for a landscaper’s imagination.
The L- shaped kitchen is open to the family room and dining room where there is a built-in banquet with cabinets and a buffet countertop. Recently installed windows offer cross ventilation in the main living space and gentle breezes in the bedrooms.
The sun rises outside the screened windows in two of the three bedrooms and sets outside the master suite. The east facing bedrooms have the quaint appearance of being dormered from the exterior without the hassle of cutting off interior headspace. The master suite has a walk-in closet and extra cabinets off the bathroom.
Simple and elegant, the intuitive floor plan was originally designed and built in 1996 and renovated in 2017 with hardwood floors, new carpet in the bedrooms, granite countertops, modern kitchen appliances and a fresh coat of mostly white paint. The clean interior and gray exterior with white trim has a symmetry that reminds one of Marie Kondo’s book “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.” It also inspired the previous homeowner to draw up expansion plans.
An insulated and oversized two-car garage makes it easy to park cars and store bikes and skis, or to create a workshop. Leave your car at home and walk to the end of the street to catch a bus to the Town Square or Teton Village.
The neighborhood, protected with speed bumps, is lined curved bike pathways leading to popular hikes and a dog-friendly playground. Kids can walk to school and to the grocery store and adults don’t have to venture far to visit the swan pond or get up high on High School Butte.
