If you're going to dream, might as well dream big.
One of my dreams is to someday live in a mansion near a lake surrounded by forest. So, I decided to do some research on luxurious houses in Idaho—more specifically, some of the highest priced. Below is a list of three of the most expensive Idaho homes currently on the market.
Located about 17 miles outside of Sandpoint, this is definitely my favorite on the list. It was built in 2018 and sits on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille, offering a gorgeous view. The house has a whole host of features, including but not limited to a gourmet kitchen, steam room, library, exercise rooms, an elevator, and an underground passage that leads to a pavilion with a home theater, office, and library. Plus, the “adjacent 3,024 sq. ft. home” is included!
Located in Ketchum, Idaho, this 14,262 sq. ft. home—a “collaboration between Ketchum-based Ruscitto Latham Blanton Architects and renowned designer Todd-Avery Lenahan—has a Mid-century Modern/Hollywood Hills vibe and design. It has a huge circular driveway, an outdoor pool, eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a great room, a media room, a massage room, an exercise room, just to name a few of its features. The backyard is spectacular, and the glass, chrome, and wood interior design in the spacious high-ceilinged rooms screams luxury.
Located at the base of the Pioneer Mountains and surrounded by national forest, this house ideal home for someone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a wine cellar, and a pool, pool house, guest house, central courtyard, and tennis court. The house sits on 292 acres and has a high-end cabin feel, and since it’s in the middle of a forest, the nearest neighbors probably are deer and nature.
If your heart hurts a little after reading this list, I feel your pain. With mortgage payments at more than $75,000 per month, I have to put my dream on hold, too. But if you’re reading this and you happen to buy one of these multi-million dollar homes, you should know that I’m a great house guest.
