This week's Featured Property is in the Heatherlands in the Mid Valley, which technically is South of Ketchum and North of Hailey. In other words, the best of both worlds.
Located in desirable Heatherlands at 242 Mariposa Drive, this custom four-bedroom home has elbow room for a family, a terrific location, and exquisite perennial gardens.
Here's what I like about 242 Mariposa Drive:
This home has all the features you are looking for: tons of natural light, an open floor plan, main floor master suite with sitting area and French door to the paver patio and hot tub; plus custom cabinets and stone tile throughout.
The main floor master bedroom opens to the back yard paver patio, deck, and hot tub. There is a small alcove which could accommodate a desk or a sitting area, depending upon your needs. The room could easily be converted to a media room or den with a simple swap of furniture.
The kitchen, dining room and living room are an open plan, intimate for family gatherings but big enough for entertaining.
There is a junior master suite on the second floor adjoined with a smaller bedroom that could be used as a nursery, yoga studio or office. Are you getting that there is a lot of versatility with this home?
The oversized two-car garage abuts a third smaller garage bay perfect to hold all of your toys…. bikes, motorcycles, skis, etc.
Off the laundry room is a ski-tuning room that could also be used as a shop for home projects.
Mature landscaping lends privacy and the views from every room to the gardens are calming and beautiful.
The home has been impeccably maintained with new windows and a new gas range and roof in 2004.
The cold entry is perfect for winters in Idaho.
The paver and decomposed granite driveway is both sophisticated and practical.
The wood stove in the living room creates the perfect ambiance during chillier months and that heating is supplemented with gas forced air and radiant heat in the main from master suite.
Did I mention that the perennial flower and vegetable gardens are superb?
Here's what I like about the Heatherlands:
The subdivision has pickle-ball courts, the latest rage to hit the valley.
There is also a pool, club house and tennis courts.
Near the club house is a volleyball court and kid’s playground equipment.
On the north end of the subdivision are the horse pastures and loafing sheds.
On a powder day, a fast right turn and just seven miles delivers you to the River Run ski lifts.
Want to head to the grocery store or a restaurant in Hailey? It’s an easy left-hand turn with a merging lane and a quick trip of just 5 miles. See what I mean about the best of both worlds?
We’ve lived in the Heatherlands not once, but twice. I think this area witnesses some of the best sunsets in the valley. Pink and purple hues enhance the blue alpenglow.
