Villa Aaliyah is a contemporary residence sits on a prime site within Shooting Star, a luxury development neighboring legendary Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. A bike path borders the community, allowing for car-free travel between top spots including the southern entrance to Grand Teton National Park. Downtown Jackson is a short drive away, as is the hamlet of Wilson.
Designed by acclaimed local architect John Carney, it marries the communal grace of a great room with the unfolding privacy of second-floor sleeping quarters. This stunning home features a great room with its soaring two-story scale, expressed in its cathedral ceiling, a wall of picture windows and towering stone fireplace. The airy ambiance is accentuated by the light color scheme used throughout, a palette defined by flax, gray and cream. Woven armchairs surround the polished dining table, and a barn wood bar and aged sideboard enable easy entertaining. A candelabra chandelier dangles above the living expanse. The adjoining kitchen features an array of gourmet equipment, from a gas stove to stainless steel appliances and sage-green granite countertops—all surrounded by custom barn wood cabinets. Studded barstools create a breakfast perch, and industrial pendants hit a modern note. Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts sweeping views of the valley—visible through two walls’ worth of windows. The king bed, wrapped in a fur throw, faces a seating vignette defined by two slipcovered armchairs and an antler side table. The large ensuite master bath offers a double vanity, soaking tub and glass rain shower. The second third bedroom, designed with kiddos in mind, offers a pair of bunk beds. A slipcovered armchair, plenty of storage and ensuite bath make the room a self-contained roost for little ones.
The outdoor area features Adirondack chairs that invite outdoor entertaining on the Teton-facing deck, a pair of square tables perfect for al fresco meals, a fireplace, and more chairs for fireside chats.
