These owners completely remodeled this 3BR/2BA condo using imported elegant European furnishings and tasteful architectural details, making you feel like you are staying in a 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.
Upstairs is the private master suite and bath which has a modern but Alpine cozy feel, offering gorgeous clean lines and sumptuous Italian drapery fabrics, soft wood-paneling, a Kohler deep-soaking bathtub and an inviting elegant sitting area complete with your very own 48' 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 guest room is wrapped in a gorgeous red French toile wallpaper and has two single beds each dressed with fine cotton sheets and a gorgeous Italian white cotton upholstered headboards; the second guest room has an charming built-in wood paneled children's bunk bed each of which are dressed with elegant Italian draperies (just like they used to have in the old European sleeper beds) while the beds are made with 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 mountain dinners. There is a five burner gas stove, a complete set of gourmet Al Clad pots and pans, a microwave, dishwasher and full dinner service for 12.
We think that 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. And when the Sun Valley sun shines through in the morning you will find yourself thinking that you are in a treehouse thanks to all of the enormous beautiful fir trees that can seen from our windows.
Additional amenities include a heated storage room with a private locker for ski equipement and/or at least (1) bike.
While we pride oursleves on the quality of our interiors, hoping that our guests are not wanting for anything (except maybe to come back), we do recognize that our condo building, which was built way, way back in the 1970s, is in need of some cosmetic exterior stucco care and paint. This is disappointing to us and so each year we work diligently with our Home Owners Association to have some TLC work done to our exteriors and landscaping. So please excuse the look of our outside until it is finished.
Overall this property 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 downtown Ketchum.
