Ketchum estate description

FOUR NIGHT MINIMUM FOR ALL RENTALS EXCEPT PERIODS WHEN LESS THAN SEVEN NIGHTS ARE AVAILABLE. PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FOR THIS PROPERTY BEFORE MAKING ANY INQUIRIES. ALL RENTAL RATES CURRENT AND NON-NEGOTIABLE. 10% DISCOUNT ON ALL RATES IF PAID IN FULL UP FRONT WHEN MAKING RESERVATION.

Spectacular luxury resort home located at the Base of Bald Mt. in the Warm Springs area of Ketchum (Sun Valley, ID). Home is three minute walk from Warm Springs Day Lodge and lifts, and ten minute drive from downtown Ketchum. Main living spaces and decks look up at the Warm Springs, Greyhawk, Hemingway, and Cozy ski runs. Unobstructed panoramic views in all four directions. Professionally equipped kitchen that can easily prepare meals for up to 20 guests who can all be seated in the spacious dining area. Eight person hot tub and covered kitchen patio area with great views, fireplace, infrared gas heaters, and both natural gas and charcoal grills.


Other Key Features of Our Home: The house construction is wood and steel framed with a stucco exterior and shake shingle roof. The rock inside and outside of the house is moonlight quartzite from a quarry near Challis, Idaho. The home has been designed utilizing half levels throughout the house as opposed to full stories which optimizes the flow and utilization of space. The main living area is comprised of the living room, kitchen, and dining area (including the wet bar) with spectacular views of Bald Mt. through the very large unpaned windows. Various doors in each space open out onto the upper deck, and door in the kitchen leads out to the kitchen patio where there is a firepalce, two overhead infrared gas heaters, and natural gas and charcoal Weber grills. The mud room is expansive with six different entrances/exits, and the washer/dryer is located in this area. Just outside the kitchen is the mud room landing and pantry with many provisions for the house, a second refrigerator, and ice maker.

Professionally-equipped Kitchen: The kitchen is well-equipped and designed for the production and service of meals to as many as 20 guests. In addition to the Sub-Zero refrigerator and six-burner range, there are two Whirlpool Dishwashers, two Dacor ovens, one Dacor microwave, and two compactors. The kitchen is equipped with ample cooking ware and implements, herbs and seasonings, various basic food condiments, and plentiful quantities of dishware and glassware for large gatherings.

Study/Offices and Multiple Wood-Buring Fireplaces: Two study/offices are located in the Master Bedroom Suite. The first study is also a well-equipped office with scenic northwestern views of Guyer Ridge and the distance slopes of Warm Springs canyon through expansive panoramic windows. The office has a spacious desk which is well-outfitted with all of the necessary desk accessories and office supplies. In addition to the WiFi Internet connection throughout the house, there is an HP All-in-One Printer, Canon Copier, two-line business telephone with remote and separate two-line main house phone, bar refrigerator with ice maker, TV, VCR, and digital cable receiver. The other study is smaller but comfortable and airy with a desk, HP Printer, and TV.

Our home has a total of five wood-burning fireplaces for your enjoyment, comfort, and ambiance located in the living room, master bedroom and family room, common area of the guest quarter, and outdoors on the kitchen patio.

Our home is heated with floor-based radiant heat throughout the main house. The Guest Quarters above the garage is heated with forced air heat. Like most homes in the Wood River Valley, our home does not require or have air conditioning available since it is naturally cooled during the summer months by cross ventilation created by the many windows throughout our home.

Other Amenities

  • Our home is heated with floor-based radiant heat throughout the main house. The Guest Quarters above the garage is heated with forced air heat. Like most homes in the Wood River Valley, our home does not require or have air conditioning available since it is naturally cooled during the summer by cross ventilation created by the many windows throughout our home. Electronic media systems are located in several rooms of the house--living room, guest quarters common area, study, master bedroom, family room. Infrared natural gas heaters are positioned above the entryway into the house as well as over the kitchen patio. They are controlled by timer switches. The driveway/courtyard, decks, and hot tub deck are capable of being heated with a snowmelt system, but we have restricted the usage of this system over the past year due to the cost of natural gas and to conserve energy. As an alternative, we use a snowplowing and shoveling service which is included in the rental expense....moreless
