Snake River Canyon
Last week I had the pleasure of taking a buyer to look at properties in Star Valley (Alpine, WY) 35 miles south of Jackson. Driving through Snake River Canyon the scenery was absolutely spectacular. It was a warm day but as you can see some snow remains in mountains and along the banks of the river. We saw mountain goats grazing on the hillside above the road. A few lucky folks were navigating the river in their rafts and a few were fishing along the bank.
Real Estate in Star Valley
If Jackson prices don't suit your pocketbook, you might want to check out Alpine. There are some wonderful homes starting in the $300k price range, and a beautiful, new executive-type home with 360 degree mountain views, can be found in the $600k range.
Alpine has a private airport where one can buy a home with a hanger in the mid-$700k price range.
