A few short minutes north of Sun Valley, where private property gives way to thousands of acres of public lands, lies this private riverfront retreat. Framed by aspens, the gate gives way to a tree lined entry which passes a meadow, riding arena and barn. All views from the driveway to the house, look out at the adjacent Boulder Mountains from the main home’s flower-lined driveway. Designed and built by two of Sun Valley’s premier builders and architects, and beautifully updated by the current owners, the home’s stucco is accented by hand-hewn timber accents, extensive use of landscape rockwork and carefully chosen plantings. All interior rooms open to outdoor balconies or exquisitely landscaped sitting areas which take in the ambiance and soothing sounds of this special stretch of the Big Wood River. Once inside, the reclaimed oak floors and hand troweled stucco walls are matched perfectly with understated window treatments, Rocky Mountain Hardware, custom woodwork and cabinetry, as well as ceilings accented by reclaimed beams. In addition to four bedrooms and baths, the main house offers a den/media room with bookcase-lined walls, automated black-out shades, and state-of-the-art media systems. In addition a spa/massage room with jetted hot pool, sauna and shower, meditation room, office, and a screened-in porch are accessories for this well designed home. The riverside tiered rock patios lead down to lawn and native landscaping, adjacent to the four hundred feet of Trout-laden Big Wood River frontage. Upstream, with a wall of glass opening to the views down river, is the art studio/bunkhouse with beautifully crafted custom bunks, stunning views to the north, a skylight running the full length of the roof peak, and a full bath accented with antique French street stone. The guest house and additional two-car garage can be found on the downstream side of the property, accessed via flower-lined rock walkways. A full kitchen, bedroom, bath, and loft sleeping area create the perfect haven for guests complete with a private patio interspersed with woolly thyme. The 2 stall barn with tack room, has a wrap around porch, turnout paddocks and fenced pasture all adjacent to an outdoor dressage arena. Whether riding on the property or from the property on the miles of nearby trails, the vistas are stunning. The flawlessly detailed architecture is in perfect harmony with its magical setting, and at the gateway to the endless recreational opportunities and the cultural offerings this captivating area has to offer.
