Nestled along the East Fork of the meandering Big Wood River lies a stunning and secluded valley positioned amidst the majestic Central Idaho Rockies.  At the edge of the Sawtooth and Challis National Forest this land is surrounded by the wild beauty that defines Idaho.  Two-time Olympic medalist Picaboo Street was born in this gorge, and learned to ski and race in nearby Sun Valley.  Today it's home to a handful of lucky residents, making it a recreational mountain paradise in the classic Sun Valley tradition.  "Living here is the ultimate Idaho dream," says Associate Broker, Reid Sanborn - trout fishing outside the backdoor in the morning, then skiing world-class slopes in the afternoon, followed by extraordinary dining, shopping, or any number of other outdoor activities. 

Very few places offer such privacy and tranquility while only 10 minutes from famed Sun Valley Ski Resort.  It’s rare when a property blends the best of both worlds as it does here - in a home situated along the gentle creek and steep mountains.  The 7832 square foot residence boasts a dramatic vaulted living room, large chef’s kitchen, home office, and bonus room with pool table and built-in bar.  Ideal for both secluded family life and grand-scale entertaining near all the action, there’s room for everyone with 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths on over 3 acres. For ultimate luxury, creating the perfect compound is possible by combining lots on either side of the property for over 11 acres of peace and solitude.  Along with premier skiing, the magnificence of the natural surroundings are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, dog walking, fly fishing, ice skating, and horseback riding.  Relaxing at the end of the day while gazing at Hyndman Peak and Pioneer mountain range ends a perfect day.  This is our backyard.  This is Idaho.
