Property description

Many years ago our neighbor in Mill Valley, CA Jack Hemingway (the eldest son of Ernest Hemingway) talked us into visiting Sun Valley as he was planning to move there. It was on this trip that we found just the right spot with views of Baldy. This townhome was just completed (we are the original owners) and had everything we wanted for the perfect vacation. We originally had 2 bedrooms and we expanded our home in the late 90's to have 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms to accommodate our growing family and friends. The house has been well maintained and updated since then.

We like the area because it is family oriented and 'far from the maddening crowd.' But, if you desire a night on the town, Ketchum and Sun Valley Resort are both just 4 miles away and are serviced by a free shuttle that runs every half hour. During the winter months you can take the shuttle which is 1/2 a block from our front door right to the base of the ski areas (like Baldy) and not have to worry about parking or lugging all your equipment through the crowded parking lot.

Our duplex home was originally decorated by Bruce Martin and more recently updated by Sloan Presley of Top Notch. We like to think that our home has character - including some beautiful willow furniture made by yours truly. The main floor has a open floor plan with tall vaulted ceilings and 2 super comfortable couches and brand new carpeting as of August 2014. Over the wood burning fireplace is a 48 star wool flag. The kitchen is very well supplied (juicer, waffle iron, coffee maker, wok, toaster, blender, etc) and most of the appliances have been upgraded in the past few years. The washer, dryer and stainless steel refrigerator are brand new. Best of all is our mid century DUX dining table that opens up to seat 10+ for large family gatherings. There is a half bath on this floor.

As you go upstairs there are some wonderful old photographs of Sun Valley from the early years. The bedrooms are all upstairs. One of our bedrooms is furnished with wonderful hand painted furniture and the other 2 bedrooms are very spacious with vaulted ceilings. The guest bedrooms have 2 twins each which can be pushed together to make a king size bed. These bedrooms share a bathroom. The master bedroom has a California King bed with a fluffy down comforter and an en suite full bathroom. All mattresses are less than 3 years old and are of very good quality.

Last year we put in a great new 6+ person hot tub - complete with a waterfall and colored lights! It's a wonderful way to end a long day on the slopes! We are also located less than a 2 minute walk out the back door down the bike path to Harker Center which offers lots of amenities: Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, pickleball courts, children's playground, and a beautiful clubhouse. Oh - and did I mention that you have use of our indoor garage for one car with ample room for other cars in the driveway?

Because of allergy concerns please note that dogs, cats and all other animals are NOT allowed at the house.

The house is for rent on a weekly and monthly basis (preferably Saturday to Saturday).

We love our place and call it Shangri-La : a place of peace and contentment and would very much like to share it with you.
