This unique, elevated, Greenhorn Canyon perch overlooks the backside of Baldy's Seattle Ridge and represents the perfect balance of warm wood finishes and clean contemporary lines, all blending seamlessly with its environment. In one of the valley's most private and serene locations, the timeless post and beam design has been meticulously updated by the current owners. The vaulted ceilings and horizontal wood planked walls are painted white, working in total harmony with the natural fir beams. Three fireplaces combine native rock with concrete mantles and hearths casting a modern hue over an otherwise rustic element. A private guest suite complete with kitchenette and separate access makes for relaxed visits with family and friends. All of the primary rooms have access to patios and/or decks and the media room offers additional storage. Additional details include Caesar stone counters, beautiful tile detailing, wine and laundry rooms. Greenhorn Canyon, just 15 short minutes from downtown Ketchum or Hailey, offers some of the valley's finest hiking, biking, and horseback riding. An absolutely perfect mountain getaway.
In 1936, the chairman of the Union Pacific Railroad, W. Averell Harriman, purchased 4,300 acres in central Idaho. The idea was to build a ski resort in the Rocky Mountains as a way to encourage westward train travel. It worked. It was named Sun Valley and within the year, “America’s first destination ski resort” opened.Read more about luxury homes in Sun Valley
Sun Valley is the name of the world-famous ski resort, as well as the small, European-styled village east of Ketchum. The name also encompasses the 30-mile stretch that is the Wood River Valley, an area filled with towns, rivers, mountains, gulches, campgrounds, and cliffs. Sun Valley is home to phenomenal mountain scenery, unlimited year-round recreational offerings, and down-to-earth people. All of this makes Sun Valley, whether it is Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, or elsewhere, one of the most desirable places in the country to live.
Mid-Valley sits halfway between the towns of Ketchum and Hailey. With a more rural feeling, this area has been rapidly growing in the past few years along the east-west roads that meander up through the mountains. Several beautiful high-end subdivisions are newer to the area. Mid-Valley features access to the Big Wood River as well as gorgeous views of Hyndman Peak up East Fork Canyon and Mahoney Butte up Greenhorn Gulch.
