Modern estate on Big Wood River with guest house, hot tub and mountain views

Nestled on nearly 4 acres of forested grounds, steps away from the tranquil Wood River, this newly constructed modern farmhouse has breathtaking vistas accented by world-class architecture.

Located in the pristine fly-fishing country this sprawling estate lies 10 minutes from the slopes of Sun Valley and just 8 minutes from the restaurants, shops, bars and galleries of downtown Ketchum.

Exquisitely designed to capture the surrounding natural beauty, the 6-bedroom, ranch-style main house marries a modern use of glass with old barn tresses and offers panoramic views from nearly every room. Along the west wall, two stories of floor-to-ceiling windows flood the great room, dining room and kitchen with natural light, framing Wood River and the surrounding aspens, wildflowers and evergreens.

Styled in contemporary decor with rustic flourishes, the great room welcomes guests to a sitting area with two full-length ivory sofas, accented by indigo throw pillows, and two matching armchairs framing an industrial coffee table and cozy gas fireplace. Vaulted ceilings with old barn beams and trusses create the feeling of an alpine lodge, while a Sonos sound system and Smart TV add modern comforts.

Just off the great room is a study with a wood-burning fireplace, library, and views of soaring trees through picture windows. Find a good read and curl up on the mustard sectional, take in a movie on the flat-screen TV, or fix a cocktail at the wet bar and join friends at the hardwood card table to recount the day’s fishing, skiing or biking adventures.

Off the other side of the great room, the dining room features a table with cushioned seating for up to 8 guests. Four high-backed wicker chairs at the kitchen breakfast bar provide additional seating for large groups or a separate “kids’ table.”

With high-end appliances, a gas stove with double oven and an additional oven in the pantry, the gourmet kitchen allows for seamless entertaining. Ample counter space, hardwood floors, industrial-chic design elements and peaceful views also make it an inviting space to craft home-cooked meals.

Thoughtfully designed with three of the six bedrooms conveniently located on the main level, the sprawling main house offers a sense of retreat and privacy to every guest. All main-level suites feature king beds and private bathrooms. The master suite, located on the western corner overlooking the river, has a private limestone patio with a comfy outdoor lounge chair, ideal for reading a good book by the river or simply enjoying morning coffee to the sound of the rushing water. On the southern end of the home, there are four additional bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms.

The kids’ playroom with a private bath is located above the garage, styled in classic sports decor, it features full-size daybeds, each with a trundle bed, a flat-screen TV and plenty of space for imaginative play.

The guest house sits about 200 feet south of the main house. An elegant living room with a cozy wood-burning fireplace welcomes guests with a full-length cream sofa, two regal cranberry-colored armchairs and a matching bench by the fire. Just off the living area is a charming country kitchen with stone floors and an electric range. Two large bedrooms, each with a king bed and an ensuite bathroom, comfortably accommodate up to four guests.

Outside, a patio spans the length of the main house with a dining table, lounge chairs, fire pit and BBQ grill as well as a hot tub to take in the surrounding views.

With parking for one vehicle in the garage and additional vehicles in the driveway, this home allows you to easily explore Idaho’s year-round recreation. Of course, anglers need only step outside to reel in a trophy catch, making this home an ideal lodge for fly-fishing enthusiasts.

In the winter, skiing is only a 10-minute drive away.
