Anyone have a spare $700K lying around?
If so, have I got a view for you!
I love this view! It's intertwined with my childhood like few others. My earliest recollections were my family loading up the big Buick 225 and heading north to the Teton Valley to visit my mom's father and a handful of her relatives located throughout the towns of Driggs, Victor and Tetonia.
We took the route into the valley from Rexburg so we'd cross over the foothills and see the Teton peaks towering into the sky. Once we hit the flats we'd wind through Tetonia and finally stop the car when the view of the mountains turned majestic--that's where the family home stood.
My mom's father and mother are gone and so is my mom. Her brothers haven't used the family farm in years so it's been decided to sell and considering the price per acre, it's a downright steal!

This is the property's write-up on the site:
Located between the towns of Driggs and Tetonia, this spectacular 100 acre property has been owned by the same family for over 100 years. Unmatched Teton views of all 4 peaks from this large parcel with water rights. Ranch, farm, or build your dream home. Rare, large acreage with paved access down the entire North side. This “quiet side” of the Tetons is surrounded by world-class trout fishing, wildlife and year-round recreational opportunities and sits between the majestic Teton range to the East and the Big Hole mountains to the west. A true sportsman’s paradise in a unique mountain valley setting. 3.5 miles to the Driggs airport. 37 miles to Jackson Hole. 14 miles to Grand Targhee ski resort.
The family home was built in 1906. In 2006 we had a family reunion to celebrate. It was the last reunion my mom attended. Now, hopefully, another family--or families--will move it, build more than a physical structure and return to where the mountain's part and the view is spectacular and call it home. If you're interested, just let me know.
