One of Teton Village's most storied structures is now on the market for the first time. In 1982, this home was designed and built to be on the leading edge of sustainability and energy conservation. Over the decades it has served as a gathering place for many of Jackson Hole's most colorful characters, none more sothan its builder and owner, Captain Bob Morris.Forty years later, it is time for the next owner to bring a fresh vision to one of the Old Village's best lots, which features quick access to the JHMR base area, mostly level terrain, light landscaping that lets in lots of sunlight, and great views of the ski resort and across the valley. Designed by award-winning architect Bob Corbett, who also designed Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village and Snow King Inn in Jackson, the home was sited for optimal passive heat gain through a south-facing greenhouse wall.
Through copper pipes within the greenhouse wall, domestic water was heated. A Clivus Multrum composting toilet minimizes the use of water. An efficient furnace helps heat the lower levels during the colder months, allowing warmth to rise within the concrete and steel structure. Suspended furniture assists in ease of maintenance.
A nontraditional floor plan features four identical suites/bedrooms on the two upper levels with the kitchen and living room on the lower level.
