Driggs, Idaho Real Estate

Though Driggs was surpassed in population by Victor around 2001 due to its proximity to Jackson for commuters, Driggs still offers a diverse inventory of real estate. Because it is the county seat, the small-town is bustling with quaint restaurants, and all of the county services are scattered throughout a small town. Driggs is also home to the municipal airport, offering private hangers and aviation-related commercial opportunities.


Ski Hill Road

Driggs has seen a variety of real estate booms over the years, because of its recreation community status. Grand Targhee is accessed only through Driggs, the most popular route is along the famous Ski Hill Road which is lined with condos, townhouses, and residential properties with easy access to town. Along Ski Hill Road, popular communities include the Stoneridge Townhomes, Powder Valley Townhomes, the Aspen Pointe Townhomes with Teton Creek meandering through the project, and Teton Creek Resort, a condominium and townhouse project at the state line between Idaho and Wyoming. Ski Hill Road is also home to some of the oldest, and most well-known communities such as Targhee Ranch, Ski Hill Ranches, Miller Ranch, Redtail, Falcon Creek and others. Most of these developments offer lots ranging in size from 1/2 acre to 2.5 acres, a fairly common acreage size due to the density requirements once you get outside the city limits. In total, Ski Hill Road, from the stoplight in Driggs Idaho, to the State line Road where Alta, Wyoming begins, is about 4 miles in length, and supports about 15 communities directly accessed from Ski Hill Road.


Downtown Driggs

Driggs was founded in 1888 by the Driggs family, as you may have guessed. A descendant of one of the founders later became the mayor of Phoenix, Arizona in the 1970s, an interesting bit of history. The center of Driggs has always been in the same location, at the intersection of Main Street and Ski Hill Road. Slowly growing outwards, the old downtown encompasses about 5 blocks East/West, and about 6 blocks North/South. These 30 blocks encompass some of the oldest homes in Teton Valley, an eclectic group of properties. Over time, many of these homes have been remodeled, and new trendy and even tiny homes have been constructed here due to its lack of any sort of subdivision restriction. Because real estate in the old downtown blocks can be hard to come by, it can also be somewhat expensive due to its desirability for the reasons above, and walk-ability to the growing number of restaurants and shops downtown.


Outside City Limits

As with all of the towns in Teton County, the city of drugs and compass is only a small portion of the real estate held in the city's name. Most of the real estate is actually considered part of the county, not the incorporated areas of the city.


North of Driggs

From the outer limits of the city of Driggs, you can travel North approximately 4 miles before you reach the outer limits of what we refer to as Tetonia. This area between Driggs and Tetonia offers some of the most pronounced Four Peak Teton views. At the 2.5 mile marker North of Driggs, you will reach 2500 North, otherwise known as Hastings Lane. Hastings Lane is home to some of the most popular “View Corridor” subdivisions including Saddlehorn, Grandview Estates, Hastings farm, and the second oldest subdivision in Teton Valley, Teewinot.


East of Driggs

Most of the area East of Driggs is encompassed by Ski Hill Road, but there are a few noteworthy communities as you reach the state line. Because these communities are North, and East of Driggs, they also offer prime Teton views. These communities include popular subdivisions like Teton Retreat, Edelweiss, Snowcrest Ranch, Elkridge and Summit View.


West of Driggs

West of Driggs is mainly the watershed of the Teton River. For that reason, much of this area, from Driggs, as you continue onto Bates Road, all the way to the Teton River, is wetland. Some of this Wetland is reserved habitat designated by the Huntsman Springs development. This terrain is what makes Huntsman Springs so unique in many ways. As you cross the Teton River, or the Bates Bridge, you find mostly vast farm ground with a few subdivisions speckled throughout. These include West Meadows, Blue Indian and Buttermilk Draw.


South of Driggs

As you leave the city limits, heading south towards Victor, you pass over Teton Creek which meanders its way along Ski Hill Road then East towards the Teton River. Along Highway 33 there are a few county roads heading East and West. One of the more traveled and well-known county roads is 3000 South. On the West side of 3000 South you'll find communities like Lovers Lane, and on  the East, communities like Teton Saddleback Vistas. 3000 South of often referred as the Darby area, because at the East end of 3000 is where the Darby Canyon Recreation area begins.
