Most expensive home in the country

The latest claimant to the title of “America’s most expensive home” is not in Hollywood or San Francisco or New York. It’s in, naturally, Wyoming — just outside Jackson Hole.
The main house of the $175 million Jackson Land & Cattle Ranch (owned by casino and resort developer Richard Fields) has only three bedrooms.
That’s OK. It sits on 1,750 acres “of rolling timbered hills with aspens and evergreens, large productive hay meadows, fishing ponds, a spring creek, [and] tremendous views of the Tetons.”
Oh, and when grandma comes to visit? There’s a a four-bedroom guest house plus two employee apartments. And, of course, a 52-stall equestrian barn for the in-laws
to stable their horses.
Of course, “landscaping and improvements are immaculate,” no doubt fertilized by the bodies of gardeners who didn’t know the difference between Populus tremuloides and Populus alba.
