Ketchum condo description

These owners have completely remodeled this 3BR/2BA condo using imported elegant European furnishings and tasteful architectural details, making you feel just like you are staying in a luxury ski chalet tucked away somewhere deep up in the French Alps. The soft honey colored Fir/Larch wood paneling used throughout the house and the wide-plank bleached pine wood floors give you a cozy mountain chalet feel while letting in the bright sunlight so famous for Sun Valley.

All alone on it's own upstairs is the private master suite and bath which has a modern but Alpine cozy feel, offering gorgeous clean lines and sumptuous Italian fabrics, soft wood-paneling, a Kohler deep-soaking bathtub and an inviting elegant sitting area complete with your very own 46' wall mounted plasma HDTV with DVD player all of which can be viewed from your luxury hotel style queen size Euro pillow top bed made with fine cotton sheets.

Downstairs there are two more beautifully appointed, cozy bedrooms, one of which is set in a red French toile papered room with two single beds each dressed with fine cotton sheets and a gorgeous Italian white cotton upholstered headboards; the second guest bedroom has an elegant charming built-in wood paneled bunk bed both of which are dressed with elegant Italian draperies and fine cotton sheets. The downstairs bathroom has an ample, modern glassed in shower area with large hydro massaging shower head, a custom built-in sink with an Italian white marble countertop and a discrete but spacious, fully functional laundry closet equipped with a large stack Bosch washer and dryer. The kitchen is compact but well equipped for anyone who loves to cook romantic dinners in the mountains. There is a five burner gas stove, a complete set of gourmet Al Clad pots and pans, and a microwave, dishwasher and full dinner service for 12.

Finally, the heart of the house is the cozy, impeccably furnished living room where a fabulous modern, clean lined gas/wood fireplace will warmly greet you while you sip a glass of wine admiring the room's elegant European antiques and furnishings including hand made Italian red silk paneled lampshades set dramatically up behind the couch and sitting area. A stunningly back lit built in bookcase area with a 42' wall mounted swiveling plasma TV with DVD player and a gorgeous sounding and looking Bowers and Wilkins iPod dock makes staying home to dine and watch a movie an inviting option especially since there is a custom made pine dining table with ample seating for six.

Additional amenities include a heated storage room with a private locker for ski equipement and/or at least (1) bike.

This is certainly for the discerning guest as the fine attention to details have made this small and cozy condo a real jewel box of a find in Sun Valley.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We have lived in Europe for more than fifteen years and have fallen in love with European furnishings and style and which we have carefully brought back and integrated into our home in Sun Valley.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
                      My family has had a place in Sun Valley since the early 70s and I have come nearly every year since, bringing back my own family to share in the magic of Sun Valley whether it is for the winter wonderland of Christmas or the breathtaking beauty of summer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love the location of our condo as it is minutes away from all the outdoor activities that we love including downhill skiing from River Run Plaza or hiking up Baldy. At night we are just steps away from the movies and downtown Ketchum which provides many shopping and dining opportunities. Just a stone's throw away is the picturesque Sun Valley lodge with it's classic ice-skating rink and world class Spa amenities.
