Enjoy a quiet evening in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the river, or out on the town just a short drive away. The home is large but warm, and literally warm thanks to the radiant floor heating throughout, and 3 fireplaces. Large windows, trees surround you, for privacy and nature to enjoy.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: Our family is originally from the San Francisco, Bay Area and we moved to Sun Valley in 1983 when Doug and Ann retired, and Aimee entered high school at The Community School in Ketchum. Doug was a builder and developer in the Bay Area from the 1950s through the 1980s when they fell in love with central Idaho. Ann is an educator, helping children learn about and love nature. Doug has passed away, but the family still lives in Ketchum.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
                      We had lived in Sun Valley since 1983 when in 1989 our builder-developer father purchased this 6-acre parcel for our family home and added even more aspen trees, built the pond, and custom-built the gorgeous barn-wood with log and river rock home. Its setting is unparalleled with the river frontage and privacy and beautiful natural setting. The top insulated windows and radiant-floor heating make the home cozy all winter long, with light streaming in from the many large windows including floor to ceiling windows in the living area and floor to ceiling including overhead windows in the downstairs bedrooms. Views abound from all rooms, and yet pure privacy.
