Riva Ridge

Nestled on 40 acres of Wyoming hillside, the 10,000-square-foot Riva Ridge evades the cowboy cabin trend and captures the charm and grandeur of a Tuscan villa.
 
The home’s architecture is tucked into the surrounding landscape, ideally positioned to give visitors unparalleled views of the Tetons to the north while capturing the southern sun. A hewn stone and mortar paneling pairs with reclaimed Wyoming snow fence planks for a worn exterior. Inside, wooden beams and posts, once destroyed by a Montana fire, support the structure and emulate heavy European pillars. Locally quarried stones dotted with 100 million-year-old fossils form private outdoor patios from each room. Antique furniture and European flair grace each corner of the home from the kitchen to the wine cellar.
 
While Riva Ridge captures a distinct European character, it reflects the spirit of the Tetons and the warmth of Wyoming’s culture.
