Property description

Welcome to West Ketchum.

Our French chateau inspired cottage is close to everything and far from nothing.

Imagine being walking distance to downtown Ketchum yet peacefully removed from the bustle and noise of Main street...all in the same spot. 

Step inside our Sun Valley cottage to find sandstone floors, fine hardwood details and hand plastered walls throughout the custom handmade 2 structure property. 

The large backyard and garden are an oasis of foliage in the Summer and a stunning backdrop of snow covered aspen trees come Winter time. Bald mountain hovers directly behind the property. 

Every corner will surprise you with quality, detail, fit and finish. 

The large living room has two couches and contains an HDTV gathering area, wood fireplace and wet bar that allows everyone to spend time together and relax.

The Bose sound system pumps out rich musical backdrops while the dramatic above cabinetry lighting sets the mood for a sensational evening. 

Everyone stays in the mix with kitchen, dining and living room all connected and opening directly onto the expansive back patio and side BBQ and hot tub area. 

Whether enjoying the aroma of wild thyme over a glass of wine on the slate patio or a cool cocktail in the hot tub with snow falling, the seasons will delight you at our one of a kind home. 

Nothing else in Sun Valley is like it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Originally purchased in 1997, our family continues to enjoy visiting the Wood River Valley for holidays, get together, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and more. We're very excited to be able to share our wonderfully unique home with visitors!

Why the Owner Chose Ketchum, ID, USA:
Our family has been visiting Sun Valley since the 1960's as there's just nothing else like it. The combination of small town charm along with world class amenities and superb skiing make Ketchum & Sun Valley unbeatable! In terms of our property in particular...Simply put, there's nothing else like our house in the Ketchum area. It's a made by hand French styled chateau/cottage with tremendous craftsmanship throughout. Beautiful natural woods & stones adorn the inside and out.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being so close to town as well as having 2 structures on the property allows all visitors to enjoy time together as well as maintaining multiple daily itineraries. People can walk to and from town and the adjacent outdoor activities all throughout the day as they see fit. Additionally, our home in particular is unique with its French inspiration and superb level of hand craftsmanship. West Ketchum truly is the best of both worlds. We have full outdoor enjoyment areas yet are walking distance to Main Street. It's a real treat!
