Our family is originally from the San Francisco, Bay Area and we moved to Sun Valley in 1983 when Doug and Ann retired, and Aimee entered high school at The Community School in Ketchum. Doug was a builder and developer in the Bay Area from the 1950s through the 1980s when they fell in love with central Idaho. Ann is an educator, helping children learn about and love nature. Doug has passed away, but the family still lives in Ketchum.

Aimee Christensen purchased this estate in 1989

We had lived in Sun Valley since 1983 when in 1989 our builder-developer father purchased this 6-acre parcel for our family home and added even more aspen trees, built the pond, and custom-built the gorgeous barn-wood with log and river rock home. Its setting is unparalleled with the river frontage and privacy and beautiful natural setting. The top insulated windows and radiant-floor heating make the home cozy all winter long, with light streaming in from the many large windows including floor to ceiling windows in the living area and floor to ceiling including overhead windows in the downstairs bedrooms. Views abound from all rooms, and yet pure privacy.

Fly fishing on the Big Wood River right on the property and just 1 minute to cross-country skiing on the Boulder Mountain trail system! The Sawtooth National Recreation Headquarters at the North Fork of the Big Wood River is a 2 minute drive away, and Galena Lodge about 15 minutes north. Hike Oregon Gulch and Chocolate Gulch trails across the highway, and enjoy mountain biking out the door! A special place so private and yet so close to the restaurants and shops of Sun Valley. Enjoy a quiet evening in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the river, or out on the town just a short drive away. The home is large but warm, and literally warm thanks to the radiant floor heating throughout, and 3 fireplaces. Large windows, trees surround you, for privacy and nature to enjoy.
