Property description

This gorgeous property is located in the heart of the Sun Valley experience. Positioned between the Warm Springs and River Run Lodges of the world famous Sun Valley Ski Resort, this home offers amazing access to every activity the area has to offer. The home is a block from the Mountain Rides bus system which can take you to the ski lifts, skate ski trails, world class golf and amazing restaurants in under 5 minutes. Major biking and hiking trail systems are minutes away. Warm Springs Creek and the adjacent 10 acre dog walking park are three blocks from the doorstep. The YMCA is less that a mile away. The access to local activities is simply unbeatable!
Our highly efficient 3 bedroom, 2 bath log home is quite a gem featuring finely crafted hardwood cabinets and floors, stainless kitchen appliances and an outdoor area with teak furnishings. The gourmet kitchen has everything you will need to prepare amazing meals. Sit around the cozy outdoor fireplace, relax in the beautiful aspens under the canopy of a hand made wooden canoe and reflect on your fun filled Sun Valley days.
For additional family members or guests, the home has a separate, yet attached one bedroom guest suite with a full kitchen that is available to rent on a nightly basis. It is perfect for a couple or a family with young children! The guest suite has a separate stone patio surrounded by flower gardens in the summer.
The home also has a two car heated garage. There is a full work bench for tuning bikes in the summer and skis in the winter.
There is also room for the off street parking of four additional vehicles.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Born in Brasil, of Danish decent, Sten grew up in Tehran, Iran, a city at 6,000 feet... just like Sun Valley. In 1980, after a short-lived career in Portland, Oregon, he moved to Sun Valley and has been a business owner and avid skier ever since. His 35 year history in Sun Valley has made him a true local.

Why Ketchum, ID, USA:
This property creates the quintessential Sun Valley getaway! It is in a fantastic location in a quiet neighborhood. The outdoor fireplace creates a cozy gathering place beneath beautiful aspen trees.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With blood sweat and tears, and a lot of help from his friends, Sten transformed this log cabin into a Scandinavian contemporary gem. It is a perfect mix of contemporary and mountain rustic. With lots of outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the solitude and starry nights.
