Rafter J Ranch

Looking for a fantastic neighborhood close to the town of Jackson where you can integrate with other Jackson Hole residents? You’ll find it in Rafter J, a 600-acre subdivision that’s 60 percent open space and 40 percent tight-knit community.

Imagine heading out your door and being on a bike and pedestrian path that can take you almost anywhere in Jackson Hole (including popular hiking and mountain biking trails) without touching a road. Imagine living in a neighborhood where shared ponds, creeks and open spaces contribute to a friendly sense of community.

Imagine calling such a place “home.”

With 360 lots varying from .25 acres to .5 acres and a range of single family homes and townhomes, Rafter J is set in an idyllic meadow surrounded by open space and criss-crossed by local favorite Flat Creek.

In 1979, Rafter J was the first planned community in Teton County to offer homesites to working families. While that demographic is alive and well at Rafter J, second-homeowners also blend into the current mix.

Rafter J history

Rafter J became the first Planned Unit Development (PUD) in Jackson Hole in 1978 when Floyd King, Jerry Wilson and Chuck Luton subdivided the 600-acre Brown Ranch into 360 lots along the meandering Flat Creek.

The development got off to a slow start in a soft market, but now tends to be light on inventory. The trio of developers designated 60 percent of Rafter J as open space and grouped homesites into the remainder.

Upon first sale, lots cost $17,000 apiece with the imagined outcome of never selling for more than $30,000. However, Rafter J with its pristine setting and proximity to town has shown to be investment-worthy over the years and starting prices for a lot long ago smashed through that envisioned ceiling.
