Chris Van Allsburg lived at the storied Polar X Ranch for a time in the 80s and penned the famous Children's book The Polar Express, now a major motion picture. The Polar Express Estate, which is composed of 7 acres with protected Teton views, is located adjacent to the 225- acre Puzzleface Ranch, Wyoming's first conservation easement assuring the property of protected Teton views.In 2010, the main residence underwent a 2.5 year, multi-million dollar remodel and addition using the finest materials to create a new master wing, and an open floor plan to take advantage of spectacular views, while preserving the unique, 40-foot ceilings no longer allowed in Teton County. In addition to the master wing, the main residence also has two junior suites, and two additional guest rooms. Downstairs is a walk out basement with wrap around patio, full-sized gourmet kitchen, and Teton views from nearly every window, and a separate entrance making it two houses in one for a multi-generational space.
Added in 2019, is a cozy two bedroom + bonus room guest house with wrap around deck and a 6 stall horse/toy barn that overlooks the fishing pond and main residence. Polar X is large enough to be a family compound where large gatherings can be hosted, yet so well thought out that each space feels cozy and intimate unlike most large homes. The only exception to the rule is the amount of outdoor space that includes a 1600 sq. ft. outdoor deck with a built-in, gas fire pit, a 10-person spa tub, and a covered 1600 sq. ft. patio for over 3000 sq. ft. of outdoor space to enjoy Teton sunsets and cool, mountain evenings.
Located nearly equidistant to Jackson Hole's Historic Town Square and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort- ranked continuously as the #1 Ski Resort in North America- The Polar X Ranch provides the best of everything to the discerning Jackson Hole Buyer.
