What's to Love about this place!
Nestled smack dab up against the breath-taking Shoshone National Forest on the edge of the Wind River mountain range, this amazing property is situated in an area rich in American-West and mining history, but simply saying, "location, location, location!" isn't enough.
Only a mile into the woods from State Highway 28, this warm, welcoming home was not only built in a perfectly private and secluded spot; its entire infrastructure was very thoughtfully, very carefully engineered. The inner workings of this super-insulated structure make it rock-solid against any kind of weather and makes for a quiet interior. The impressive water system can store up to 2,000 gallons (pumped up from your very own, spring-fed, private well) and filters/conditions/purifies the water into pure deliciousness by the time it comes out the faucets. The well has been in constant operation and has never disappointed (even through one of the worst droughts in Wyoming history). Electricity is derived from the robust (professionally installed) solar energy system that pretty much runs itself and won't have you worrying about leaving the lights on or running the dishwasher and the dryer at the same time. Your very own mature pine forests will provide an endless supply of fuel for your wood-fired furnaces and cook stove. Firewood not your “thing”? No worries as there are two 1000 gallon propane tanks hooked to the several propane wall heaters and throughout the home.
No need to hassle the headaches of having a home built in a "remote" location and the gambles of drilling for water. This home's infrastructure is DONE and PROVEN! Not having to pay utility bills is priceless and lets you focus on more important things like whether to...hike or bike, fish or ATV, admire moose or elk, snowmobile or cross-country ski, wander your pine\aspen forests or lounge in your meadow. Maybe you just want to sit on the 360-degree deck and have a drink, listen to the bull elk bugle and the sand hill cranes sing, read a book, paint pictures, or surf on your smartphone (AT&T and Union Wireless signal is superb throughout the property. ViaSat/Exede Satellite for TV too!).
The home’s big windows, multiple skylights, and expansive, open ceiling give it a stunningly light and airy feel. No “winter blues” here! There is plenty of room for family and friends to cozy up around the beautiful soapstone wood-stoves (actually wood-furnaces). If your visitors have RVs, there are numerous, private spots around the property for them to park! If, even with all of this; you somehow find yourself yearning for fine dining, shopping, and boho-vibe coffee houses, Lander (one of the friendliest "college" towns in the Nation) is only about a 35-minute drive away.
Even though this home was designed to be used as a full-time residence, it "pickles" for winter “storage” quite nicely and will happily serve as your vacation get-away. Includes fully-deeded easements, recent property survey, water rights, mineral rights, and fully "tracked" Polaris Ranger side-by-side. Property taxes are less than $1,000/year!
