Nestled in the pines just minutes north of Ketchum, this four bedroom, four bath lodge-style home on just under five acres sits above the valley, enjoying views of the timbered hillsides to the east. Bordered by USFS lands, access to miles of trails is literally out the back door. The gourmet kitchen with its slab granite counters and center work island opens to a generously sized dining area and cozy family room with a river rock fireplace. French doors access both east and west facing patios. The great room is perfect for large gatherings with a built-in bar, river rock fireplace and vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows and divided light glass doors opening to the east facing patio. The three bedroom guest wing to the north has a separate entrance and two full baths. Additional features include a large laundry/pantry area off the kitchen with a sink, dishwasher and beverage fridge as well as extensive pantry storage. Head downstairs to the game room with built-in bedding, a full bath with sauna, and separate media/TV room. The master bedroom encompasses the second level with vaulted ceilings and fabulous views. The spacious bath includes two walk-in closets with built-in shelving and drawers, two water closets, a large glass and tile shower, two separate vanities, and a beautiful freestanding soaking tub. The four car garage and separate oversized one car garage provide plenty of room for both cars and recreational equipment. A natural stream feeds two stocked trout ponds while the restored 1800's vintage three bedroom guest cabin provides the ideal lodging for friends and family. A perfect package for those wanting an authentic mountain experience without sacrificing the elements of a luxurious home.
