ONE OF A KIND! HILL-TOP CUSTOM HOME WITH COMMANDING VIEWS
THIS FANTASTIC AND UNIQUE 6 BEDROOM/5.5 BATHROOM HOME LOCATED A FEW MILES NORTH OF KETCHUM AND ATOP A HILL WITH COMMANDING 360 DEGREE VIEWS OF THE SURROUNDING WILDERNESS IS AVAILABLE TO RENT FOR THE FIRST TIME FROM EARLY MAY TO THE END OF NOVEMBER 2023 AND CAN BE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT.
This is one of the ones, a rare one, the type of Sun Valley home that only occasionally is available to lease ... and coming soon in 2023 for a seven month period will be the chance for some lucky tenant. Will it be you? Oh, we hope so!
Multi-leveled and many faceted, the main home is a 5 bedroom and 4.5 bathroom gem that is accompanied by a stand-alone 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom guest house casita, both boasting huge and undeniable views of the Smokey Mountains in their own private slice of Idaho. From elegant entryway to classy glass staircase to the open floor plan of the living-dining-kitchen common area with west-facing walls of view-drenched windows, the initial experience in the home is impressive. The master suite is just up a short flight of stairs and at a private space at the back of the home with a queen bed, vaulted ceilings, a tall rock fireplace, its own corner of large windows to take in that part of the hilltop expanse, as well as a walk-in closet and a spacious and contemporary en suite bathroom with double sink vanity, deep tub, and glass shower. Two more bedrooms are just down the hallway from the master suite -- one with a queen bed and the other that is currently an office space, but the owners are happy to make it back into a bedroom -- and there is a full bathroom on the hallway to service these bedrooms.
Just downstairs from the common area is a family/TV room, another bedroom with a double-sized bed and a full en suite bathroom, as well as a powder bathroom for to service the main floor common areas. And then back by the main entrance to the home is a large gear and "mud" room and just off of that room is a private guest suite with twin beds (that can be bridged into a king), a gas log fireplace, its own bank of windows and wonderful views, and the en suite bathroom, of course.
And what of the stand-alone guest house casita? Well, it is accessed at the bottom of the glass stairs that lead to the common area living spaces of the main home through French doors leading to an outdoor walkway to the north and --- viola! -- you are there! The apartment has a comfy a sitting area with a gas log fireplace and kitchenette and a private bedroom with king bed and full bathroom en suite. Oh yes . . . and more views of the surrounding mountains!
And all of this has been about the inside of the fantastic living spaces, but the real show stopper of the property is the wonderful outdoor space that surrounds the home with expansive patios and custom gardens and unimaginable peace and quiet in its own unique setting atop the hill. Wonderful full-day sun and then a night-time sky of a zillion stars. Breathtaking!
All of this could be miles and miles from anywhere, but it is really just a few miles and minutes from Ketchum and Sun Valley and all of the comforts that those world-class mountain town communities offer. And then there is the Bigwood River just mere hop-skip-and-jump from the home with public access about a mile away. But what about mountain bike and hiking trails? Yup -- just around the corner and over the next hill with a lifetime of exploring minutes away. Shall we go on? Well, you get the picture -- classic Central Idaho experiences and adventure are all around and just out your proverbial back door.
Enough with the written platitudes! If this is sounding and looking like the kind of place you'd like to spend a sizable chunk of 2023, then please get in touch to learn more . . . and perhaps you will be the lucky guest at the hill top home at the edge of the Sawtooth wilderness of Idaho!
