Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband and I reside in California. We are retired now. My husband was a civil trial attorney and I was a school psychologist. We have two children, a son, who is a public defender, and a daughter, a special education teacher. While growing up they were pair figure skaters, and we would come to Sun Valley each summer for lessons and competitions. They both live in Silicon Valley as well and have 5 children between them.

Why the Owner Chose Hailey:
We had been coming to the Sun Valley area since 1989 and fell in love with it. When we found our house in Hailey we knew that we had found the ultimate vacation home with all the serenity and peace one could ever want. The surroundings are breathtaking and the slow pace of life in Hailey truly allows one relax and enjoy the simple things of life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is secluded from our neighbors and the downtown. It is truly a 'get-a-way' where one can relax from the pressures of the outside world and yet it is close enough to Sun Valley to enjoy all the amenities of a resort both in summer and in winter.
