Sun Valley Resort Home

In the Sun Valley Resort town of Central Idaho, this pristine home is nestled amidst the world-famous ski area of Bald Mountain and the Sawtooth National Forest. Winding trails and pristine lakes beckon the town’s visitors, making this location green, vast, and nothing short of beautiful. The wilderness of the region is respected and sought-after day and night due to it being the first gold-tier Dark Sky Reserve of the US. This custom home is located within the reserve, protecting it from the light pollution of urban development, allowing the night sky to be displayed at its fullest potential.

This Sun Valley resort home has a classic exterior profile topped with an elegant gable roof. The standing seam roof adds subtle texture to the mixed material exterior of stone and wood siding. The home welcomes its visitors through a double-sided vestibule of full-height windows. An expansion and contraction of spaces occur throughout the home creating a natural flow and movement from one room to the next. The home is filled with immaculate details of reclaimed beams, interior stone walls, and gridded windows. The main living quarters are equipped with full-height curtain wall windows, allowing mountainous views into the home.

Glo’s A5f triple-pane windows were used for their thermal performance and effortless beauty. The Aluminum series is equipped with a nail fin (f) for standard US installation, despite their European heritage. The clean aesthetic of the windows is further supported by a concealed hinge, creating an air-tight seal and clean window frame. The large-scale windows, up to 11.5’, are seen throughout the home, showcasing the beauty of the outdoors beyond. The energy-efficient windows and doors boast high-performance spacers, a larger thermal break, multiple air seals, Low-E glass, and argon-filled glazing. The multiple, large-scale French doors and Lift & Slide doors allow for plenty of opportunities to enjoy the allure of the Sun Valley Resort landscape.
