Rocky Creek Ranch
Once in a great while, an exclusive, once in a lifetime real estate opportunity comes available. Sometimes, it's a great value, or an impressive view. When this property came available for sale 15 years ago, the Owner's of Rocky Creek Ranch knew this property was something special. They saw an opportunity for the grandest home sites, recreation, privacy, exclusivity, and serenity. They purchased the acreage and installed a volume of quality improvements, including barn with guest quarters, large pond, tennis court, heated paddle tennis court, trap range with shooting deck, guest house, stunning primary home site, roads, trails, fences and voluminous utilities.
In negotiating the purchase, they worked with Broker Mark Rockefeller of Teton Valley Realty to impose deed restrictions on adjoining hilltops – ensuring their amazing Teton Views would never have visible homes in the view corridor. The acquisition was deeded into three 20 acre and one 5 acre parcels, adding value, benefiting future liquidity, and allowing for 4 primary residences with guest house and accessory structures, as well as Teton Views, with each parcel.
As you approach the first landmark turning off Henderson Canyon Road, you encounter an attractive, unique barn providing large storage for maintenance equipment, tractor, horse stalls, and recreation vehicles. The barn also features 2160 sq' of livable space above. It becomes apparent that "Barn" is an understatement, as you cast your gaze on the field of lupine wild flowers, trout stocked pond, hand crafted bridge and various meandering trails that make you feel as if you are part of a fairytale – which is perhaps why this property has been a popular sought after destination for weddings, photographers, and artists.
Continue up the well maintained winding drive, and enjoy the breathtaking forest views and wildlife. Along the way, you will pass an elevated meadow complete with a heated paddle tennis court and warming cabin. No detail here is overlooked. A restroom is strategically disguised as an old saloon out-house. The winding paths are apparent here, faintly visible through the trees. The meadow could also provide an incredible home site with Teton Views.
Crest the first gradual s-curve climb and prepare yourself for breathtaking views. Here, dusk presents a natural light show as the sun sets over the Grand Teton. This appears to be the 20 acre home site of your dreams, though arguably third to those following. The site is flexible enough to be a cabin site, but more likely a grand home site, towering over the valley below. The landscape here suggests yet another pond on the ledge beneath the site, almost as if it were spilling off the edge, into the canyon below.
Moving upgrade, after a peaceful tour of the second 20 acre site, you can almost feel the air thinning as the drive climbs to the final major landmark of this incredible property. The hilltop opens and the 1918 square foot guest cabin comes into view. This fourth site features a fenced tennis court, a detached garage, and a trap range with a shooting deck that extends high over the wooded National Forest below. The Cabin features quality furnishings, timbered ceilings, river rock fireplace, abundant windows and covered decks, with western decor throughout, 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. The cabin blends in with the conifer and aspen covered landscape – as if it is one with the forest. Looking outside to varied views, you will never feel as free as this anywhere else in the world, across the rolling, wooded hills to the valley below, and the prominent Teton Mountain Range abroad.
