Paintbrush Ranch borders Grand Teton national park in Wyoming and has some of the best views of the Tetons anywhere in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The property includes a 9,100 square foot five-bedroom custom home; two-bedroom guest home; a one-bedroom caretakers home and a pair of shop buildings which can store all the toys you might need. Like many ranches, this one has a bit of taxidermy decor such as a half a stuffed deer jutting out of the fireplace. Antlers are everywhere including in a bed headboard and in a massive chandelier in the dining room. This home was once listed at $13.9 million but is now priced at $8.495 million with Hall and Hall.
Today's estate brings us some beautiful Wyoming views. The Darwin Ranch is a private 160-acre in-holding in the Bridger-Teton National Forest that is completely surrounded by the Gros Ventre Wilderness Area and the National Forest. The ranch is 30 air miles east of Jackson Hole in a natural basin surrounded by the Gros Ventre Range and three 10,000-foot ridges.
On the property there is an authentic lodge and several small but comfortable cabins. It has been operated as a small guest ranch and outfitting business by the current owners for the last 45 years and is accessible seasonally by road and off-season by snowmobile. There is also a nearby airstrip under permit from the national forest that will accommodate single engine aircraft. The Gros Ventre River meanders through the ranch and the ranch offers dry-fly fishing, hiking, riding and hunting. This ranch was given to the original owner by Teddy Roosevelt (presidential decree). It is listed at $8.5 million.
Clean and contemporary can work well in the spare landscapes of the west. Case in point is this modern home on 15 acres in Indian Springs, Wyoming. The four-bedroom home uses contemporary elements of steel, concrete, crisply detailed wood siding and intersecting rooflines. The home is comprised of three distinct structures. The use of local earth tones and copper-clad projections add texture and shadow to the exterior. The interior uses a more refined version of stone, wood and metal elements. The main-level structure houses living room, dining room and kitchen and has angular custom bronze and mica chandeliers. A Bulthaup kitchen opens to dining, living and terraces. The home features intimate spaces tucked within larger rooms. A two-story library leads into four bedrooms, with views to surrounding mountains. There is a large deck off master bedroom. The Indian Springs community has a private clubhouse, pool, tennis courts and horse stables. This home is listed at $7.65 million.
The last time we heard about the Little Jennie Ranch in Bondurant, Wyoming it was back in 2005 when the home, then on the Forbes list of Most Expensive Homes sold for an undisclosed sum. Back then the ranch was listed at $55 million. Now the working cattle ranch is back on the market. The 3,016 acre historic ranch is one of Wyoming's most pristine and secluded private ranches. The ranch is a short drive south of Jackson Hole in the foothills of the snow-capped Gros Ventre Mountain Range and is surrounded by Teton National Forest and three mountain ranges. The ranch has miles of trout fishing streams and rolling meadows with Aspen and Fir. The Little Jennie has been a cattle operation since the 1950s. The property has a two-story log residence of 4000 square feet built by Jack Kranenberg at the heart of the ranch headquarters with eleven additional cabins scattered throughout the ranch. The property is now listed at $69.5 million.
The daughter of the former Forbes Magazine publisher, Moira Mumma, is selling the 85 acres but will keep a parcel near the property, Viehman said. She is selling the property because she doesn't need so much space, the Realtor said. "There are 20 some odd beds at the main compound," Viehman said. "The property was part of the original Jackson Hole Ranch. It borders Grand Teton National Park, and the Snake River runs through it. The Forbes listing is one of the few large land offerings along the river that has not been protected with a conservation easement."
The property is being sold as one parcel, divided into two tracts. One of the oldest structures on the property is an historic barn, over 1600 square feet, dating to 1918. A 4,100-square-foot main lodge includes an original homestead cabin, while a main room and gallery date to the 1940s. The main lodge, renovated in 1980, includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a recreation room and private sitting room. In addition, five guest cabins, ranging from 410 to over 800 square feet, offer another 10 bedrooms There is also a three bedroom caretaker's house. The modern kitchen and master suite were designed by well-known local designer Bobs Koedt.
The family ties to the Teton Valley date back more than 80 years to Forbes' wife, Roberta Remsen Laidlaw . In 1928, Laidlaw began visiting the valley with her parents when she was a child. After she married Malcolm Forbes, the couple honeymooned here, and Roberta insisted on returning often. "My mother, before her death in 1992, spent six months a year at the ranch," Mumma said recently. "She loved the valley more than anything on earth, and we were the lucky beneficiaries of that love."

Luxury real estate in Wyoming has taken a big blow with the sudden closure of Real Estate of Jackson Hole, the largest locally owned and operated real estate firm in the area. The company announced Monday it would close immediately after stakeholders turned down an anonymous investor's offer, as well failed plans to restructure. Many of the firm's brokers have begun to seek work elsewhere. Employees were asked to remove all personal items from company offices and remove all Real Estate of Jackson Hole yard signs from properties. The company had 70 agents listed on its webpage so many will be looking for work in a market that is a bit oversaturated with brokers. Underpinning all this is the stagnant real estate market which Rob Cheek, a top commercial broker who has been a realtor in Jackson Hole nearly 30 years, tells Planet Jackson Hole has been similar to the doldrums of recession of the mid-1980s.
This home definitely doesn't look like a cookie cutter log home. The five-bedroom home in pricey Teton Village, Wyoming has its own take on what it means to be Western. The home has a unique combo of wood and stone that gives it a bit of an enchanted cottage feel (although at over 7,200 square feet it's far from tiny). Exterior details include several large deck/patio areas with large in-ground hot tub bordered by a year round stream. It also has an office and a bunk room for the kids. It is listed at $9.25 million. After the jump, check out the cowboy tile mural in the kitchen.
