Envision a brand new, stylish, three-bedroom, three bath, and three-story townhome - with THREE DECKS hanging over Trail Creek as it babbles through central Ketchum. Add trees, Baldy views, and a private hot tub on the lowest deck beneath a canopy of cottonwoods next to the stream... Then consider the EXTREMELY FAIR NIGHTLY RATE - this very classy new residence is probably the best lodging deal in town! And now... after all the five-star reviews, new owners have upgraded the furnishings to an even higher quality - but kept the price as before!
Summer or winter, you'll want to be an easy stroll from the center of Ketchum, Sun Valley's actual community, where you'll find renowned restaurants, galleries, theaters and shops for which rustic-sophisticated Ketchum/Sun Valley is so well known. In winter, the River Run Shuttle stops nearby on its way to the lifts, arriving at the River Run base in minutes. Or you can drive the half-mile to the lifts and park.
The split-level architecture offers the very latest in design excellence, maximizing views, privacy and exposure to the delightful creek. The great room looks over Trail Creek canopied with cottonwood foliage in the summer and offering bold views of Baldy in the winter. The bedrooms--each with its own bath and its own flat-screen TV and DVD player--are all on separate levels; two face the creek and the mountain and have access to the decks flanking the stream. The other bedroom makes claim to the kitchen, great room and uppermost treetop and Baldy-view deck. All of the furnishings finishes and equipment are state-of-the-art, reflecting the owners' good taste and genuine sense of hospitality.
There's a large heated double garage right in the unit--no twisty, tight underground parking and elevators to deal with. The stairs are tiled in slate leading to living areas with smooth hardwood floors coordinated with the alder kitchen accents, big solid-wood doors and window casings. Accent area rugs add color and style to the living areas. Bedrooms feature wall-to-wall carpeting.
The kitchen is a joy with granite, stainless steel, alder, pendant lighting over the casual-dining bar, and everything you need, from blender to teapot to wall-mounted bottle opener. And, with the open floor plan, the cooks are part of the great room, arranged around the gas-igniting, wood-burning fireplace and wall-mounted 42-inch TV/DVD etc. The solid-oak dining ensemble is set up for six.
The spacious master bedroom suite with king bed has a large adjacent sitting room with ultra-suede sofa sleeper which can be partitioned for privacy by closing double pocket doors. An antiqued armoire closets a flat panel TV and DVD player. Access to the lower deck offers an easy evening hot tub. The bathroom suite features granite counter tops accented with travertine, shoulder depth tub, glass encased shower and walk-in closet/dressing room.
The second bedroom offers a queen bed, TV and DVD and its own bath with a roomy glass-enclosed shower lined with slate.
Bedroom Number Three, on top, has twin beds that can be converted to king; its adjacent full bath with roomy glass-enclosed shower also tiled in slate, functions as the powder room.
