If you’ve ever dreamed of being a ski bum, the perfect lodge has just hit the market in Teton Village.
The nine-bedroom Granite Ridge Chateau boasts ski-in, ski-out access to the Tetons, complete with its very own ski locker and a hot tub that’s so close guests can practically ski into if they’re not careful.
The good thing about that is, though, no one has to walk very far to pour themselves into the hot tub after a long day on the mountain.
The ski room offers lockers for each occupant, as well as a bath and a laundry room so that guests may tidy up before spilling out into the rec room.
“The rec room has, you know a big kitchen bar and a setup for a pool table and game table,” Graham Faupel Mendenhall & Associates Associate Broker and Compass Real Estate Agent Matt Faupel told Cowboy State Daily.
There are also bookshelves for a library and a big television lounge area in the rec room. The fun basically never has to end, unless you want it to.
A Bedroom For Everyone
When it’s time to finally sleep, no need to worry which bedroom is yours. Every bedroom in the Chateau is more than generous, and there’s really no particular bedroom that’s any smaller than any other.
One bedroom is set up near the kitchen, providing space for a private chef or nanny to live. There’s also a very generous suite with a sitting area and fireplace, which was designed with grandparents in mind.
“(The builders) really thought of everything, you know, all the aspects of having a large family,” Faupel said.
The master suite, meanwhile, has its own office space, both of which have fireplaces. There’s also a deck that connects both spaces together outside.
All decks and outdoor patio spaces are heated, allowing their use in the wintertime, and with 1,500 total square feet of deck space. No one could possibly feel at all crowded with these kinds of outdoor spaces available.
Largest Lot In Teton Village
The kitchen has been designed with two of everything, so there’s plenty of space to provide for the occupants of the lodge. It’s also being remodeled by Peacock, a renowned kitchen designer out of Chicago.
In addition to heated driveways, there’s something else that makes this Chateau a one of a kind in Teton Valley.
“This is the largest lot in Teton Village at the ski area, and it is also the largest house by a good bit,” Faupel said. “With the regulations here in the county limiting home sizes to 8,000 square feet, not counting basements, it’s very difficult to build a house of this size anywhere in the valley. So that is pretty unique, in addition to having direct ski-in, ski-out access.”
The lodge also has a basement for some extra space, a wine cellar all its own, and an elevator. No need to take stairs after a long, tiring day of skiing.
Perhaps the only thing the chateau does not have is a greenhouse — something a ski bum undoubtedly has no interest in having anyway.
“You’re more likely to see moose there than tomatoes,” Faupel said, noting that the surrounding trees of this wooded lot don’t allow for a lot of extra sun for gardening anyway.
“There’s a small, small landscape in the back yard, and then it goes pretty wild into the trees,” he said. “Bears are probably the most prevalent wildlife up there, but you’ll definitely get deer running through there in the summertime.”
