Oriented and shaped by the expansive pond on the property, the house centers on a dock and boat house that define the essence of living in the shadow of the Tetons. It is shrouded by layers of beauty, first in antique, reclaimed and regional materials, then by wetlands, open country, and ultimately the ring of mountains. The tone and texture of stone, wood and metal respond to the crescent-shape of the riverine property with two opposing curved structures. Restrictions in Wyoming’s best-known playground include stringent environmental codes. As a result, this house uses no fossil fuel energy and was constructed with minimum disturbance to delicate natural water features and wildlife habitat. Additionally, extensive restoration of ancient riparian features and wetlands were implemented by Verdone Landscape Architects.
Outdoor lifestyle and recreation define the home’s easy flow from indoors to out, and a glass corridor linking the master suite with social areas of great room, kitchen and dining area offers an additional connection to nature. Thoughtful landscape design naturally enhances the home’s ancient aspen grove site on the edge of a pond.
