Property description

Magical and Magnificent Sun Valley property once featured on the cover of House Beautiful. 7000 sq foot log cabin estate on a beautiful 2 acres of manicured grounds on the big wood river right across the river from the Hemingway estate where he himself fished every day. Log Cabin life meets The Four Seasons... surrounded by scenic mountain views and the running river, you will often see deer, moose and silver foxes while steps from the best of Sun Valley restaurants and services. The gated property is just north of Ketchum in the Northwood estates between the Sun Valley Lodge and the Warm Springs and River Run Lodges. Walking distance to town with Bike Paths at end of street that connect to entire Bike grid. The house features a master bedroom with large private bath with his and her sinks, his and her walk in closet, steam shower and hot tub. There is a 2nd master sized bedroom over the garage that is connected to the home that is very private with a charming pitched wood ceiling. There are 4 upstairs bedrooms of equal size, each with queen or full sized beds and private showers and baths and TV's, plus a fantastic bunk room that will sleep 5-6 kids or young adults.

If the mountains and river aren' enough we feature an arcade game room, gym and private massage room. There is a Den and a living room with Plasma TV's and a full sized chef's kitchen with Breakfast room. There is a full sized inside hot tub with mountain views and a fantastic outdoor pool just beside the river. Ping Pong Table, Playstation 3 system, Pool table, darts, etc... lots of books and games in house as well. Private access to Big wood river with great fly fishing right outside with guides readily available to teach beginners or lead experienced fisherman to the hot spots.

There are fantastic caretakers that can arrange all activities, reservations, chef's, nannies, massages, car rentals, housekeeping, and anything else needed during your stay. There is no other home like this available and is used by the owner often so you will feel totally at home. Perfect for large families, multiple families, friend and colleague retreats with fantastic proximity to Conferences, Skiing, cycling, fishing and everything else the area has to offer.

Our hope is that you will fall in love with Sun Valley and this breathtaking estate and come back year after year.
