THE HOME

Toad Hall

Winner of American Institute of Architects Design Award in 1991

Winner of American Institute of Architects Design Award in 1991, and designed by award-winning architect Bruce Hawtin of Hawtin Jorgensen Architects in Jackson Hole, the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired, 14,598-square-foot, 7-bedroom, 9-bathroom home was programmed to maximize the views of the Tetons. “Every inch was designed to take full advantage of the site,” says Hawtin. With classic lines and a beautiful floor plan, this sophisticated estate—nicknamed “Toad Hall” for the original owner’s love of “The Wind in the Willows”— exudes timeless luxury.

  • Designed by award winning Architect Bruce Hawtin, this home exudes timeless luxury.
  • All materials for the stone and cedar constructed compound are indigenous to Jackson Hole, with the exception of the fossil stone which contain sixty million year old fossil fish quarried in the Green River area.
  • The award winning design, and its use of materials, is reminiscent of the prairie style of Frank Lloyd Wright and the stonework of the Teton moss back rock-constructed buildings is reminiscent of that found in Wright’s Fallingwater, as well as Wright’s design for painter Archie Teeter’s home on the bank of the Snake River.
  • Current zoning restrictions enacted subsequent to Todd Hall’s three and a half year construction ensures that Todd Hall will remain “one of a kind”.
  • Seven bedrooms and nine baths / Almost 15,000 sq. ft. of heated space
  • Six lots totaling 20.75 acres – four on the Seventeenth or “Sleeping Indian” Fairway of the award-winning Robert Trent Jones golf course.

ENTRY

  • Found throughout the property the polished and heated fossil stone floors are from the Green River area
  • Substantial exterior Oak doors
  • Professor Martin Oliver, from the University of Washington, was commissioned to create the carvings. Martin also carved the totem poles at the National Wildlife Museum. There are two other commissioned carvings in the house, and they will all stay.

“The carvings represent Oliver’s artistic and cultural vision of the Jackson Hole area. The smoothly flowing images, precisely defined figures and masterful blend of form and color and texture are a superb expression of the master carver’s art and of Native American beliefs.”

THE EAGLE

Intelligent and resourceful. He rules the sky and is able to transform himself into a human.

THE BEAR

A teacher symbol as it is believed that Bear taught the People to catch salmon and pick berries. It also represents a protector and symbolizes courage, physical strength and leadership.

THE BEAVER

Symbolizes determination, protection, overseeing and building.

COLORS

Black represents life and red represents the spirit world. When combined with the symbols they create a poetic vision of the world and the Jackson Hole valley.
