    Description

    Rare and exquisite offering in a stunning and private north Alta location with quick access to skiing and public land. Aspen groves, native vegetation, and panoramic foothill views are enjoyed from the property. The property features a high-end guest cabin (ARU) and an''old fashioned barn'' style shop/garage with guest quarters above. The existing structures, infrastructure, and site were carefully planned to accommodate a larger, main residence to be built in the future. The professionally designed and installed landscape features gardens, flowers, and mature trees. Constructed with 8'' thick dried hand hewn logs, the cabin is a study in quality. Reclaimed woods were used throughout the cabin and barn. The buildings feature solar, hydronic heat. Plans for main house included.Black Sheep Farm Details Seclusion and Wildlife Corridor at The End of the Road The roughly 14 acre Lot 1 of "Black Sheep Farm" is the southernmost of only five parcels in this 84-acre subdivisionat the end of "Moose Meadow Lane"and the most secluded. Surrounded by a 140 acre pasture to the west, a heavily-treed hillside to the north, and conservation easement/wetland/wildlife corridor on the remaining two sides, lot 1 is well-protected from any future building by its "neighbors." Black Sheep Farm represents the end of the road for subdivisions in Altathe last such project that will ever be approved there. With the entire community set aside for residential, minimum 35-acre lots, Alta's rural character is set aside for preservation by Teton County LDR's for present and future generations. Of the other four parcels, two have completed main houses and outbuildings, one has a guest house only, and one is set aside for the children of the owner next to it (lot 4). There's a fire pond and hydrant fed both by Kiln Creek and a community well that's part of Lot 4 but for the benefit of all owners. Visitors and guests are greeted at the entrance to the subdivision by a large ranch-style gate and rustic mailbox shed. The subdivision road is generously widethe same as County road standardsand substantially constructed. The HOA provides regular roadside and common ground weed control. A community trash collection site is protected from animals by large metal doors camouflaged to appear like stacked cut log storage, making it visually a part of the rural impression. Southern Homestead Character Working with land planners, architects, and contractors on the blank slate that was Lot 1 in 2006, the owners diligently considered how best to take advantage of the dedicated "development area"roughly two acresand preserve view corridors, access, and light exposure. After nearly a year in development, the final site plan incorporated the owner's Carolina heritage by grouping the buildings in a relaxed U-shape, enclosing a common area patio, outdoor fireplace/grill, hot tub, gardens and decorative pond. The design concept allows for a larger pond to abut the driveway, and a faux creek will connect that pond to the common patio decorative water feature. The entire complex of buildings was designed to reflect the historical process of homesteading: a small log cabin to start, a barn to follow, and finally a main home constructed once their stake had been established and successful. Accordingly, the owners built the log cabin and the barn according to plan; the rest of the development could continue executing the Master Plan, or could be designed and built to suit the needs/taste of the new owners. A Substantial Guest Suite Teton County WY allows up to 1000 sq ft. "ARU" (Accessory Residential Unit) in addition to a main home of up to 10,000 square feet. Using only materials that capture the rustic and legitimate nature of old log homes, the guest house/ARU on Lot 1 was constructed using only "primary" materials: no pressboard, plywood or drywall are incorporated in the finished surfaces. The eight inch-thick kiln dried Southern pine logs, shipped in from Kentucky, range in width from over a foot to nearly two, and are hand-hewn by adze on both exposed sides. Fir bead-board and pine tongue-in-groove comprise the walls of certain rooms, and the ceiling is wide-plank whitewashed pine. Windows are old-fashioned double hung (thermal insulated) stained fir with bronze frames. But there are two more features that really characterize craft construction of this cabin. First is the use of reclaimed woods throughout, both for finished surfaces and trim, all of which was selected from regional collectors and suppliers. The flooring is comprised of six different hardwoods of varying character, color and width to make a striking visual impression. The stairs were fashioned from three inch-thick oak joists salvaged from an opera house in the Midwest. Trim pieces and cabinetry are hand-built from wire brushed reclaimed scaffold board, as well as from some of the oak. Incorporated into the cabin floor is a hydronic heating system powered by both solar heat from the garage and an electric furnace in the cabin. Small lights are recessed into the ceiling to accent various features of the open spaces. Fixtures and countertops also incorporate the farm-style theme. An Old-fashioned farmer's deep sink in the kitchen and a clawfoot tub in the bathroom are accentuated by the thick black granite countertops. The hex white/black dot tile of the bathroom complements those colors and time-line of the ceramic and brushed-nickel fixtures. Equally notable are the hand-built chimney and fireplace. For both, each and every stone was cut to fit a pattern and set by a 4th-generation mason who worked on it singlehandedly for nearly a year. Using Kemmerer stone of varying colors, the chimney's bulk is a proportional match to the heft of the logs. The cabin's foundation was built in the same fashion and with same materials, set off by the use of pure copper flashing.
