Property description

Escape to Sun Valley and this soul pad retreat with character. Nestled away near a park so it's quiet (birds sing even in the winter!), yet walking distance to town. Beautiful new maple hardwood floors, granite counter tops, accented with art and treasures from over 20 years of globetrotting.

There is nothing better than your own private hot tub on the upper deck, right off the master bedroom. Your white robes are waiting. You can see the milky way and the Sun Valley firework shows. When was the last time you slept in a waterbed? This ain't your college waterbed, though, as this has waveless baffles and a support floatation mattress on top, and Egyptian cotton 500 ct sheets. Warm and snuggly in the winter, and so comfortable, you won't be able to get out in the morning.

Ok, for a hot tub and morning coffee maybe? There is grass cloth on the ceiling to give the feeling of being in a tropical jungle treehouse. Watch the snow fall on the trees without getting out of bed.

The downstairs bedroom has a private patio for snow entry and covered gear storage if you like. I hope you enjoy my home as much as I do.

Paraglide off Baldy and land in your backyard! That's right, the park adjacent to the condo is the alternative landing zone for flights of Baldy. The nationals were here last summer, and coming up are the world campionships!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I grew up in California, but I fell in love with Ketchum 18 years ago. Living in a place where there are more stars in the sky than city lights, and you can walk/bike everywhere feeds my soul. I live to snowboard and now ski in powder, and in between enjoy hiking, cross country skiing, paragliding, mountain biking, and rollerblading. I'm a world traveling artist/photographer, and have a photography studio/gallery in town where I show my personal work, called Photos Do Not Bend. I also shoot weddings, kids, and family portraits. I love hot springs and hot tubs (who doesn't?), live music, and laughing with friends.

Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
The biggest patch of wilderness right out the back door! So many things I can do without ever getting in a car..... mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, rollerblading on the bike path, summer symphonies & jazz picnics, walk to town, and even close down the bars on a blue moon. Not too many places you can land a para-glider in your back yard. Ketchum has the most amazing sense of community, too. It just takes one person getting hurt, for the whole town to pull together and hold a concert/bake sale/auction to help. I've never seen anything like it.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Enjoy your own private hot tub on the upper deck after skiing! (or maybe with a cup of coffee in the morning?) Great location! Walk to town, but right next door to the large park and the flagship YMCA. Even though it's a condo complex this is a very private unit. Great front yard for the kids to play in the snow, and a private patio on the lower floor for snow entry/gear storage if you like. Beautiful new hardwood floors, granite counter tops, sharp knives, fluffy towels, 600 ct cotton linens, and oversized down comforters. When was the last time you slept in a waterbed? This ain't no college waterbed, as this has waveless baffles and a support flotation mattress on top, with Egyptian cotton linens. Warm and snuggly in the winter - so comfy you won't be able to get out of bed. Ok, maybe for coffee in the hot tub 20 ft away. Plenty of closets, dressers, shelves and hooks for all your things. Hook your computer or ipod up to the surround sound, or go wireless and stream with my Aiport. Free internet and extended cable. My home has treasures from over 20 years of globetrotting - not your run-of-the-mill sun valley rental. I hope you enjoy my home as much as I do.
