Situated on almost 12 acres of groomed open land and natural forest, this majestic estate is the epitome of gracious Sun Valley living. It combines fine European craftsmanship with an authentic palette of native materials to create an enclave that seamlessly melds formal elegance and detail with the sprawling grandeur of the classic lodge aesthetic. The property consists of a grand lodge-style main house, a spectacular outdoor entertaining area and quarters for the household manager. Massive windows under deep eaves frame views of the surrounding Boulder Mountains, Griffin Butte and the Bigwood River as works of art, while a series of wings off of the main axis are defined by the home's expansive cedar shake roofline, creating a sun-drenched enclave that is seamlessly integrated with its surrounding grounds, yet carefully screened on all sides by stands of evergreen forest. The main house is voluminous in scale, offering 15,000 square feet of opulently appointed living space, yet its sumptuous selection of building materials and surfaces ensures that every room maintains a sense of intimacy and approachable luxury. Four bedrooms and six baths are discreetly spread over two stories, with old-growth logs used to great effect as structural elements that also convey warmth and history. Meticulously hand-carved woodwork provides a counterpoint of European refinement and luxury and virtually all of the public great spaces feature two-story vaulted ceilings and classically detailed paneling, augmented by decorative plaster that changes tone with the light throughout the day. No fewer than six fireplaces provide both literal and figurative warmth throughout the interior, with a central river rock mantel and chimney serving as the first floor focal point. There is an artisan's hand evident in every detail of this singular residence, from its raw materials to its finishing touches. Every log used in its construction was hand selected from the Bitterroot Mountains, resulting in a timber frame structure that is testament to the builder's art, and of a scale seldom seen in contemporary or even historic buildings. Stonemasons meticulously selected and mixed the locally sourced river rock that clads the house to achieve a perfect blend of color, scale and texture, and the front entryway is simply a masterpiece of deep relief woodcarving that must be seen to be appreciated. Inside, some of the most accomplished woodcarvers in the world were employed to handcraft thousands of linear feet of custom moldings, paneling and architectural elements, many of which feature the same intricate leaf pattern used on the entry. Public areas are designed to offer vast amounts of space for entertaining and casual relaxation alike, with cathedral vaulted ceilings, hand-troweled plaster finishes and floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the house with natural light and capture stunning views of the Boulder Mountains and surrounding nature. The centerpiece of the house is a grand living room with a formal dining room and bar area on either side. This is a dramatic space, defined by a finely crafted log structure that supports a two-story vaulted ceiling with the property's signature stone fireplace rising through its center. The dining room is ornately paneled, with an oval coffered ceiling and direct access to the grounds through French doors, while the bar functions as a relaxed lounge area for conversation or after dinner cocktails. The kitchen is both a convivial hub of the home and a spacious venue for casual entertaining. It is elegantly appointed with custom carved maple cabinetry, exotic slab granite counters, artisinal tile backsplashes and a limestone and wood parquet floor.
