Is the great American west calling your name? If it’s not yet, this Idaho haven may change that. Sat inside Tributary, a newly developed gated community to the west of the majestic Teton Range, the listing is ripe to be a year-round retreat. Of course, ski season is an especially magical time to own property in the area. So, if this dreamy new build asking $4.95 million tickles your fancy, now is a great chance to scoop it up.
Completely modern yet still boasting a rustic feel, the crisp and warm new built could rightfully be dubbed a ‘contemporary chalet.’ Spanning over 5,000 square feet and able to comfortably host 16 people overnight, the inside is soaked in light from the surrounding black windows. With a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as a powder room, it will be hard to keep family and friends from wanting to visit. To make the spot even better for entertaining, a bunk room with four beds is sure to make kids’ eyes light up with thoughts of slumber parties. Add in the home’s bonus room, outdoor fire pit, and jaw-dropping views of the surrounding land and there is no time of the year when loved ones won’t want to stop in for a weekend.
Surrounding the perimeter of the enclave is Tributary’s private golf course, making this spot an excellent getaway for even the warmer months. But, golf is often part of luxury communities. Something that makes this one unique is what they call The Fen: 500 acres of protected peatland turned navigable by a raised boardwalk. Members can explore the rugged area and observe the natural habitats of several animals without worrying about harming them.
The home may feel fairly isolated and seem more fitting to be miles away from any town, but it is actually only minutes away from Main Street and the local airport. Spain Short of Tributary holds the luxury Idaho listing.
