Linn Ranch

Hidden by nature, Linn Ranch is an example of Old-World craftsmanship. The exterior of the 10,700 square-foot home is characterized by reclaimed wooden trusses, posts, and beams, as well as repurposed Montana field stone.

Inside you’ll find rare, reclaimed chestnut floors, cabinets, and doors. The house itself sits in the middle of a pond, complete with a wooden causeway to the front door. Retractable, bronze Italian windows allow natural light and a refreshing Wyoming breeze to flow effortlessly throughout the rooms.

Protecting Nature

From Wastelands to Wetlands

Linn Ranch was built on an old, dilapidated site formerly regarded as a gravel pit, sawmill, and junkyard. However, the homeowner saw extraordinary potential in what was arguably a wasteland. The surrounding wetlands and ponds were all reconstructed from lost tributaries and springs of the Snake River. The property has since become a thriving ecosystem for several native species of wildlife.

Behind The Details

Artificial Dam

The Jackson, WY area is very much protected by stringent environmental codes in order to sustain the natural beauty for years to come. As a result, this house uses no fossil fuel energy, and crews worked delicately to avoid disturbing the property’s natural water features and wildlife habitat. Additionally, extensive restoration of ancient riparian features and wetlands were implemented by Verdone Landscape Architects.


Paul Bertelli, JLF & Associates

“This elegant enfilade parti pris affords every room a spectacular view of the Grand Tetons. Contemporary wall and cabinet finishes are a bright contrast to the traditional stone and reclaimed timbers that anchor the house to the earth.”
