In Sun Valley, Idaho, two popular ski mountains are the treeless Dollar Mountain good for beginners and Bald Mountain for the more advanced skiers. In the summer, the nearby town of Ketchum hangs on to its history of coming into existence long before the name “Sun Valley” was conceived.

At first a mining center and then a train holding location for sheep because of its proximity to the Union Pacific Railroad, it still retains its wild west ambiance. It was a place chosen by Ernest Hemingway as an inspirational place to live and write; now a cultural center with galleries, old-time storefronts, and free summer symphony concerts in the new Sun Valley Pavilion. Add to this an opera and nonprofit community theater and the town is practically bursting at the seams with activities.

Currently for sale and the exact opposite of the mountain log cabin, this 8,000-square-foot contemporary on over a half-acre of land has seven bedrooms and seven baths with heated floors and patio pavers throughout. Built on three dramatic stepped-up levels, it also comes with an elevator ready and waiting to hoist your ski-exhausted body up to any floor you desire.

Designed by award-winning Los Angeles architects Marmol Radziner and Associates, the home backs up to thousands of acres of protected land, affording both views and privacy. With multiple glass walls, and facing Bald Mountain, there are upper decks and lower patios with great spaces for entertaining stay-over guests and extended family and plenty of room to roam for the older children.
