Sun Valley house description

This cozy 2600 square foot home is located on a private cul-de-sac in Elkhorn in the Twin Creeks area and has access to all the Elkhorn Amenities including hottub, sauna, steam room in the winter and tennis courts, 2 swimming pools in the summer and playgrounds. Views of Mt. Baldy and surounding mountains are enjoyed from the floor to ceiling windows on the main floor.

This serene setting is the perfect spot for year-round vacations. Surrounded by aspen trees and a private pond out back, enjoy fly fishing in your own backyard, pedal your bike to the bike path two blocks away and ride to the Harker Center swimming pool , to the town of Ketchum or just down to the Big Wood River and if you feel really ambitious we have ridden our bikes into Hailey (12 miles one way) for lunch. Step outside the front door and create new sledding trails on the quiet hill at the end of the street or throw on a pair of snow shoes or cross-country skiis and carve your own trails.

After a busy day of activity there is nothing like coming home and cooking a great dinner and gathering at the game table connected to the living room and enjoy a multitude of boardgames located in in the hutch. Kids can relax in Bedroom 3, it's own living area equipped with TV, XBOX, couch and bean bag chairs. Or get a roaring fire going in the rock fireplace, open a perfectly chilled bottle of wine from the wine cooler and enjoy your favorite movie on the large flat screen in the living room. Although there are not many movies in the house we enjoy going into town to the local video rental place and renting our favorite movies.

The main door leads into a long entry way with a tremendous amount of closet space and two 6' benches. It is the perfect place to remove and store your sports equipment. The garage is also the perfect place to store one car and larger sports equipment such as skis, bikes, etc. There is also a spare overflow refrigerator in the garage for beverages or anything else you might need. Once entering the main door, you will see a second door with stained glass windows on either side (web photo) and provides the entrance to the main part of the house. On this floor is the main living area (ceiling to floor windows with views), kitchen (including, granite counter tops, wine cooler, hardwood floors), laundry room, Guest room number 1, Main bathroom (shower only), and dining room with sliding glass door to balcony, overlooking pond.

Stairs in the center of house lead to guest Bedroom 2 (2 bunks) and guest Bedroom 3 (2 bunks, TV, XBOX, coach) and bathroom (shower only). From Bedroom 3 is a sliding glass door which leads to a small deck and also to the backyard and pond area. Finally, on this level is a suite style master bedroom with 48' flat screen TV, masterbath with tub and shower. From the master bedroom is a sliding door to deck with build in benches which leads to back yard and pond. Deck is equipped with patio furniture..

This home is the ultimate family vacation home.

Trap Range about 10 minutes away in SunValley, small bowling alley in the SunValley Lodge (need reservations during Peak Season), take a trail ride to dinner @ TrailCreek Cabin, beautiful site seeing in the Sawtooth mountain range at Red Fish Lake in the Summer, miles of snowmobiling trails out of Smiley Creek Lodge (reservations needed during Peak Season).Take the gondola up to mid-mountain to the Round House Restaurant for either lunch or dinner. And if your timing is right, a special treat are the full moon dinners @ Galena Lodge. Also, Galena has awesome cross-country ski trails and miles of trails north of Ketchum along Hwy 75, all the way up to Galena summit, ask in town at the Elephants Perch or Sun Valley Club House for trail maps.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Two families own this home. The two wives have been best freinds since college. Both graduates from the University of Washington. We fell in love with this area on a Husky Winter Sports Trip, back in 1981. It wasn't hard to convince our husbands to buy a home here as they instantly fell in love with the area too. We are from the Seattle area and wish we could get over to Sun Valley and use our home more frequently. With work and kids it doesn't happen as often as we would like.

Why the Owner Chose Sun Valley:
My best friend Cindy does not love skiing as much as I do, but loved the summer sports, particulary the horseback riding and knowing that the Olympic rider Debbie McDonald had a training arena in Hailey sealed the deal for her. Our kids love all the acitivies, from skiing, fly fishing, snow mobiling, ice skating,. With the wide array of personalities I can honestly say, 'There is literally something for everyone!'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are at the end of a cul-de-sac and it is very quiet. There are only 4 homes on the street and we very rarely ever see anyone. It is very private and we feel like we have our own private sledding hill, snow shoeing area and cross country area. Of course there's not many places which can claim to have their own private fish pond either. Having access to the Elkhorn amenities (hot tub, pool, sauna, steam room, and tennis) is nice too!
