Norwegian Woods – Is it Time to Build?

It’s no secret that across the country real estate inventory is low. This is also true in the Sun Valley market. As you can see by the chart below, inventory is down 9.6% for single family homes in Blaine County from the same month one year ago.

Perhaps it’s time to build?

If you are considering building, please keep Norwegian Woods in Warm Springs on your radar. Check out the video below which shows how glorious the lots are at Norwegian Woods and then keep reading as I will tell you why this close-to-downtown Ketchum subdivision just got better!

As you may know, Norwegian Woods backs up to U.S. Forest Service property and the backside of Baldy. In fact, the expert skier could ski from the top of Baldy to their front door at Norwegian Woods. The subdivision is surrounded by open space and all of these acres of open space lend a sense of privacy to each of the lots at Norwegian Woods.

But here’s why Norwegian Woods just got better.

According to a press release from the Wood River Land Trust, “One of the last undeveloped parcels in Ketchum has been officially preserved as open space and wildlife habitat for generations to come. Thanks to the generosity of the James and Barbara Cimino Foundation, nearly ten acres of valuable pasture, forest, and riparian areas along Warm Springs Creek, adjacent to the Ketchum city limits and the U.S. Forest Service lands, has been placed under a conservation easement.”

The property preserved by the Cimino Family and the Wood River Land Trust runs along the eastern border of Norwegian Woods. What this means for homeowners at Norwegian Woods is that the panoramic views from the lots looking towards Trail Creek and the Pioneer Mountains will forever be unobstructed.

Unobstructed Views and Other Amenities at Norwegian Woods

The elevated nature of Norwegian Woods and the acres and acres of open space surrounding the subdivision means you can build a home here knowing your views will never be hindered by development.

Here’s a few other attributes of Norwegian Woods and A REASON TO BUY NOW.
