Ketchum house description

This beautiful home is located on a large lot in the west ketchum area at the base of Bald mountain. It's in town location and the fact it is just a stones throw from the Big Wood river allows easy access to all sorts of activities through all seasons. A three minute drive or ten minute walk will take you to the River run base lodge. It is also close to the valley long bike and cross country trails.The house is located on a dead end cul-de-sac so drive by traffic is very rare, and the house is surrounded by a grove of Aspen, Cottonwood and towering pine trees. Atkinson park is nearby for family activities and the town of Ketchum with all it's many restaurants and shops is any easy walk, bike ride or drive. The home itself is very comfortable with a California King bed in the master along with a private balcony that has views of the cliff bands of bald mountain. The master bath has granite countertops, his and hers sinks and a jetted jacuzzi tub and shower. The walk in closet is ample for any length of stay. The two guest rooms have Queen beds and are large and comfortable.The house has beautiful hard wood floors and is carpeted in the main rooms for a cozy warm feel. Numerous couches and chairs make sure the whole family can relax in comfort. For entertainment 3 flat screen T.V.'s are available with a 55 inch in the main den, a 42 inch and the master and 32 inch in the guest room. A full MP3 stereo set up with cable and wi-fi are also available for your use. A full 6 person hot tub spa is located on the back patio make star gazing from the back deck one of our favorite pastimes. The back yard is large and private for summer or winter play.The kitchen is fully stocked with all the comforts of home and the heated garage assures a warm car on those cold winter mornings. The house has a washer dryer and the forced air heating system has a humidifier attached for your comfort.This home has been in our family since it was built 15 years ago and having raised my children here I can say there is no better combination of location , comfort, and open floor plan family living here in Ketchum.
