If you love the mountains and playing basketball, then this sprawling 13-acre property in Sun Valley, Idaho, is the slam-dunk of your dreams. Dubbed “Lucky 7 Ranch,” the 11-bedroom, 14-bathroom mansion boasts a large traditional red barn… complete with a basketball court, as well as a caretaker’s apartment. Of course, that isn’t all this home has to offer.
The 19,000-square-foot manse is located in the private community of Gimlet, next to hundreds of acres of protected land, with unparalleled 260-degree views of the surrounding peaks, including Bald Mountain and the Boulder Mountain range.
Some of the estate's features, to name a few:
- Main house: 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 18,675 square feet, 4 car garage
- Guest house: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1188 square feet, 2-car garage
- Caretaker’s apartment: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms 1364 square feet
- A plexipave tennis court with the highest level of performance and cushioning
- Large, salt-water pool with a diving board, basketball hoop, and lounging platform
- Enclosed garden for growing organic fruits and vegetables
There are also sprinklings of rare, global accents; for instance, the exterior walkway is made of stone imported from the Yangtze River Valley in China. And the pillars in the kitchen? Excavated from a river in Egypt.
