Spectacular Elevated Setting
Perched high above the Bigwood golf course on two combined lots of over three acres, this deceptively elegant home tops the charts as far as ultimate views of Sun Valley's world-famous Bald Mountain.
Harmonizing with the surrounding environment, the property is dynamically grounded by three monumental, museum-quality, earth keeper crystals whose size and magnificence integrate this one of a kind home and the surrounding landscape. As a result, the home has a feeling and presence that must be experienced in person.
With floor to ceiling Windows, the home is bathed in light and surrounded by terraced rock walls and rock patios with outdoor spaces designed to be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Purple Lupine, peonies, columbine, daisies, iris and magnificent ferns cascade down the rock terraces and lend sweet scents of summer to the outdoor living areas. Lounge by the pool with a good book or enjoy the sauna or steam room directly off the adjacent changing area and game room.
The gourmet kitchen is flanked by rosewood cabinets finished in high gloss and accented with polished Brazilian Rosa Imperial granite counters and islands. The centerpiece of the kitchen is the custom sky roof which brings the outside in. The fireplace makes for cozy winter evenings under the stars while gathered in the kitchen.
The two living areas are connected by a glass-walled gallery with access to a number of west facing patios. The formal dining and living areas are adjacent to the kitchen while the second living area serves as an entertaining mecca. The more intimate sitting area is centered around the fireplace which adjoins the expansive dining and entertaining room complete with a complete wet bar. The entertaining area has been host to galas of over 100 complete with a band and dance floor.
Two separate wings accommodate three bedrooms each offering a perfect set up for families or groups looking for separate quarters. The master is tucked away above the rest and offers a large dressing area and palatial bath opening to the crystal flanked hillside gardens. Beyond the private terraced back yard are sage covered hillsides where deer and wildlife watch the goings-on from above.
Additional features include a home theater with wet bar, a dedicated office with closet storage, two laundry areas, a wine cellar, cedar closets, abundant storage and an over-sized heated three car garage.
Whether enjoying this view laden location winter or summer, downtown Ketchum is just close enough and not too far whether by car or via the bike path. The Bigwood Golf course and tennis courts are ready for summer play. But then again, what could be more relaxing than staying home and enjoying all that this gorgeous property has to offer?
