"Close to the sky, living in heaven" is an expression that captures the true essence of owning and experiencing Soaring Eagle Retreat. This rare and uniquely beautiful 205± acre property sits over 800 feet above the Wood River Valley on the east flank of Sun Valley's world-renowned Bald Mountain Ski Area just two miles south of downtown Ketchum and three miles from the venerable Sun Valley Lodge. The centerpiece of Soaring Eagle Retreat is a 5,471± square-foot, custom-built log home that is situated to take advantage of unending views of the Pioneer and Boulder Mountains while remaining hidden from the valley below. Built in 1992, the two-story residence was designed for comfortable, casual mountain living and features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, two kitchens, and a three-car garage with shop space. Upon reaching the residence at the end of the private, forest-lined drive, one is immediately struck by the setting's tranquility, seclusion, and splendor. Once past the entrance, a mountain wonderland awaits those craving a slower pace with dreams of living in harmony with nature, skiing fresh powder, hiking, and cycling endless mountain trails. Although only ten minutes from the shops and restaurants of downtown Ketchum, Soaring Eagle Retreat feels as if it's a world away. This alpine sanctuary offers the ultimate privacy, seclusion, and the chance to personally enjoy nature. There is also convenient access to the best of Idaho’s outdoor pursuits. Exceptional trout fishing is found on the nearby Big Wood River and further south on Silver Creek, while there is direct access from the property to thousands of acres on Bald Mountain for hiking, cycling, and skiing. In addition, for the adventurous off-piste skier, the property presents incredible ski-in/ski-out opportunities utilizing the recently developed Sunrise terrain expansion just west of the property. With its unique mountaintop setting and an unsurpassed location, Soaring Eagle Retreat has all of the desired luxuries and amenities that make the property the rarest of finds in one of the West’s iconic resort areas.
