An upscale compound nestled in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho, hit the market Monday for $15.99 million, making it among the most expensive homes on the market in the entire Gem State.
The mountain estate comprises three properties on 11 acres that includes a lagoon-like water feature that flows between the residences, according to the listing with Travis Jones and Svea Grover of Engel & Völkers Sun Valley. The listing agents were not immediately available to comment on the listing.More: Seven-Bedroom Chalet Offers a Taste of the French Alps in Aspen, Colorado
The property’s main residence is a 6,152-square-foot home that incorporates stone and wood throughout. It comes equipped with five bedrooms, a den, fireplaces and walls of windows to invoke “a relaxed yet elegant, modern craftsman atmosphere,” the listing said.
There’s also decks on three sides of the home and views of Bald Mountain, the Smokey and Boulder mountain ranges. The guest house has a long and impressive history, having served as a general store, a gas station and most notably, appeared as Grace’s Diner in the 1956 comedy drama film “Bus Stop” starring Marilyn Monroe, according to information from Engel & Völkers.
Grace’s Diner was the titular bus stop along the cross-country route taken by the movie’s main characters.
But these days, the 2,082-square-foot guest cabin offers two bedrooms, full living amenities and multiple patio areas with firepits.
The last property on the estate is the party barn, which has a silo attached. The building has a large bunk room, a full kitchen, living and deck space, plus a heated garage and a sunroom, the listing said.
