World’s richest woman lists her property

Christy Walton, who inherited her fortune from her late husband John T. Walton, son of Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, recently listed her Wyoming property.

The asking price is $12.5 million for the 2.45-acre property, which is situated near the resort town of Jackson Hole. 

Built in 2007, the 8, 606-square foot home features six bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms, a media room, a theater room and a sauna. A two-bedroom guest cabin which was built in 1906 is also a part of the property. A unique heated three-car garage is just one of the many features of this property.

Situated adjacent to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the estate has ski-in, ski-out access. It offers majestic mountain views and bubbling creek runs through the property.

 The listing agent’s website describes the home this way:

An architectural masterpiece, the fully furnished home incorporates traditional alpine style with impeccable European details, including imported stone pavers, 200-year-old reclaimed oak floors, cathedral ceilings and hand-crafted Albertini windows. And a creek runs through it: Ellen Creek meanders through the grounds, past abundant wildflowers, against the panoramic backdrop, creating small ponds and waterways.

Walton, is a well known philanthropist who donates to a number of causes. After her husband died, she donated the family’s 1896 Victorian home outside San Diego to charity, and she and her son moved to Jackson Hole.
