Million Dollar Listings: A Rare Gem in Hailey, Idaho

by Sasha CarterJuly 17, 2015


If you’re in the market for a luxury home, then you know they’re not too difficult to find. Nearly every real estate market in the country has at least a few properties that are a cut above the rest. But it’s a rare residence indeed that stands out quite like the one at 11882 Highway 75 in Hailey, Idaho.

Outdoor Enthusiast’s Paradise

For the uninitiated, Hailey is an adventurer’s paradise, surrounded by the breathtaking Sawtooth National Forest. Lovers of the great outdoors appreciate Hailey for its wealth of outdoor recreational opportunities, which include winter sports, BMX riding, fishing, equestrian activities and more. Lovers of small-town life come for the friendly atmosphere and quaint downtown, and stay for the great schools and welcoming neighbors.

An Impressive Pedigree

Acclaimed architect and former Frank Gehry acolyte Frederick Fisher designed this wonderful residence. Fisher’s firm is responsible for the redesign of Princeton University’s Firestone Library, and is currently in the process of renovating Glendale, California’s historic Grand Central Air Terminal.

When you commission an architect of Fisher’s acuity to design a private residence, the result is a home that is as much a work of art as it is a living space.

The Art of Living Well

Here, rough-hewn stone mantles meet expansive picture windows with captivating vistas of the surrounding landscape. Domed hardwood ceilings mirror equally stunning fir floors.
This home is certainly a work of art, but it’s also a gallery, and not just for paintings, sculpture, and photography, but also for the art of living life to the fullest. The estate was built for entertaining, and the layout strikes a perfect balance between grand spaces and intimate ones. It would be the perfect setting for a celebrated artist’s private showing, with lots of display-ready walls and plenty of cozy niches for conversation among collectors.

Made for the Consummate Socialite

With its grand gourmet kitchen, walk-in refrigerator and freezer, 3 wine cellars, two full wet bars, and oversized pantry, your staff will have everything they need to ensure that you and your fellow revelers will want for nothing.
Expecting guests? With 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, and 5 powder rooms, you’ll be able to welcome out-of-town visitors in grace and style. There’s also a separate home for your groundskeeper or caretaker.

Creature Comforts Abound

This home has all the amenities that you’d expect in a top-tier estate, and then some. An indoor spa, massage room, steam room, dry sauna, and professional quality gym, complete with all the fitness equipment you’ll need to stay in shape when you don’t feel like cross-country skiing.
On the roof, you’ll find a sparkling pool and luxurious Jacuzzi. Relaxing in the warm jets and surrounded by the majestic Idaho wilderness, it’s hard to picture a more perfect place for quiet contemplation or for sharing good times with your favorite people.

Location, Location, Location

The setting is a big part of this fine private estate’s overall appeal. It’s situated right along the Bigwood River, where pastoral streams crisscross the property. The purchase price of $18 million includes more than 18 acres, but for those who prefer the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, an adjacent parcel of nearly 33 additional acres is also currently available on the market.
