This exquisite four-bedroom, 5,450-square-foot luxury Sun Valley vacation home offers the utmost in privacy and convenience, as well as the amenities and design of an upscale mountain lodge, for a group of families or friends looking for an unmatched vacation experience. Tucked away on the backside of Dollar Mountain, yet just a five minute walk to downtown Ketchum, this exclusive and extraordinary Sun Valley jewel will make it hard to vacation anywhere else.
Upon entering this expansive estate, you may feel as if you walked into a page of a home magazine. A perfect blend of rustic and contemporary, the home showcases designer furnishings, custom decor, modern amenities, and mountain motif. Gallery-worthy art graces the home and warm terracotta tiling radiates throughout. Immense wooden log beams and door frames collaborate with high vaulted ceilings and well-placed recessed and track lighting to amplify the grandiosity of the home.
Step into the great room and savor the influential mountain views perfectly framed by the large and numerous windows. Peer through the provided telescope for a closer look: you may catch a glimpse of the native wildlife frolicking in the hills. A lavish wood fireplace ensconced in a floor-to-ceiling steel facade acts as the centerpiece (or masterpiece) of the great room, and is the perfect place to warm up and enjoy some hot chocolate and family time after a long day on the slopes or adventuring in the woods.
A cozy den on the main floor is an ideal space to curl up with a book by the uniquely designed wood fireplace or watch some cable TV or a VHS movie or DVD in peace.
Nothing makes you feel more at home in a vacation rental then the smell of a home-cooked meal emanating from the kitchen. And with a five-star kitchen like this, you may find that meals in will trump meals out! This is a chef's dream: Fully-stocked, open and spacious, a glorious island with gas range, a deep farmhouse sink, polished cement counter tops, stainless steel appliances, warm woods, plenty of prep room, and a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Not to mention a small kitchen TV and a wet bar that will start an in-home happy hour off right. A gorgeous family-style dining table offers inspiring mountain views to pair with your culinary creation and will provide seating for up to 10 guests.
When it's time to turn in, a privileged couple will find the master's quarters on the main floor with a log-framed queen-sized bed, en suite bath, unique art, chaise lounge, and access to the patio and the stunning natural Idaho landscape through French doors.
Head upstairs and you will discover three more private bedrooms, each with en suite baths. The kids will love the bunk room, while two couples or singles will find solace in the comfort of the queen-sized beds provided in other two rooms. Another cozy den hosts a TV and comfy couch, as well as a kitchenette, making the second story a fantastic alternate retreat or great play space for our younger guests.
A giant outdoor patio plays host to dramatic views of Mt. Baldy while offering an ideal space for entertaining in the warmer months. Fire up the gas grill and gather the whole family for a night of BBQ and storytelling as you watch the sun give way to the night stars.
In addition to comfort and luxury, this distinctive home also provides the convenient amenities to fully complete the ideal rental home. For those needing to catch up on work while away, wireless Internet will keep you up to speed. A CD player and stereo will let you set the soundtrack to your vacation, and a washer and dryer will help keep packing to a minimum. Multiple fireplaces, both wood and gas, provide added warmth in the winter, while central air conditioning will keep guests cool in the heat of the summer.
