This home was purchased in 2007 and completely remodeled in 2010. The home is 2300 SF and convenient to all things Sun Valley!
The bike path, free KART bus and ski lift are walking distance. The home is located on Warm Springs Creek and the sound of the water is magical. There are views from every window of the creek, the mountains and the horse pasture next door. The front deck is surrounded by tall trees providing lots of privacy but a beautiful view of Baldy , the back deck overlooks the creek and has plenty of space. There are patio chairs, tables and umbrella sets on both decks and a large gas grill on the back deck. There are Adirondack chairs on the front deck for relaxing and reading.
Come home from a bike ride and sit on the back deck with an ice tea, a sandwich and a book...and fall asleep to the creek rushing by.
At night, invite friends over and visit on the back deck with a drink and tend to the BBQ and then move to the front deck for a quiet intimate dinner with friends surrounded by the towering pines and spruce trees

We live in Tucson AZ and spend part of the summer in Idaho. Carter is a physician and Mary owns a travel company. We love dogs, we love to hike and bike and entertain. We spend a lot of time overseas and working on various projects. We have been married for 15 years and have no children but we have many nieces and nephews all of whom we adore!
The picture of us is when we first closed on this property, we were sitting on the original hearth. Little did we know we had to replace all the windows and doors and the hearth and mantle and ...you name it! It looked so pretty when we saw it staged and ready for sale...but, we have made it much nicer! We have a lot of friends in Sun Valley and we have been going there for 15 years. We decided to buy this home because we fell in love with the sound of the creek and the neighborhood. We can walk to an un-used but well maintained, Warm Springs Golf Course, perfect for walking the dog. We live next to a pasture full of beautiful horses and our neighbors are wonderful.
We go back and forth but work keeps us busy so, for the time being, Sun Valley is part-time.
We can walk to an un-used but well maintained, Warm Springs Golf Course. We live next to a pasture full of beautiful horses and our neighbors are wonderful. We can ride our mountain bikes right up to the bike path and go over Heildelberg into Adams Gulch, we can hop on our road bikes and bike into town in less than 15 minutes for the Farmers Market or a quick trip to the grocery store. We often ride our bikes to parades and other events so we don't have to look for parking! There is so much going on at all times in Sun Valley, it is great to be close to everything and so nice to come home to privacy, put your feet up on the deck and watch the creek rush on by.
