Photographer-and-painter couple Ed and Lee Riddell moved to town from Wilson, Wyoming, looking for a thoughtful space where they could age in place in the thick of the Jackson art scene. Interior designer Agnes Bourne and Stuart Plummer sought a new space that would provide the opportunity to open their home to artists.
These neighbors' homes "speak" to each other with similar rooflines and walkways to side entries, creating a mini neighborhood within the neighborhood. Snow King Mountain, with ski slopes and hiking trails, sits in the background.
In Ed's own words, the Riddells' home (Designed by architect Will Bruder) is "all about living an intentional life."

When Agnes Bourne found the contemporary home (designed by Farmer Payne Architects and Bourne herself) next to the Riddell residence, she realized it would be a wonderful place for her and Stuart to live. A major plus was the great guest apartment. "We could provide lodging for visiting artists to enhance the vitality of the arts community in Jackson," Bourne says.

The side entries offer the Riddells an opportunity to meet Bourne and trade stories or celebrate the day with a glass of wine through dog Tosca’s fence.
