Antler-free, modern ski homes are all the rage these days, and this $8 million ski home in Sun Valley, Idaho exemplifies the trend. Spread over three levels, the 7-bedroom, 6.5-bath house features a 4-suite guest wing, a personal gym, a peaceful Zen garden, and a media/rec room. Not to be outdone by the guest quarters, the master suite has a private deck with a stone fireplace, and a meditation room. Marble countertops adorn the gourmet kitchen and spa-like bathrooms, floor to ceiling windows throughout the house make it impossible to avoid the spectacular views of Baldy Mountain, and hydronically heated floors and pavers ensure that your feet are never cold. We're particular fans of the Idaho quartzite fireplace and the outdoor spa, because what's a ski day without a hot tub to unwind? There's not much of the typical mountain home style in the chalet's 8,000 square feet; the only animal skins are on the dining room chairs and there's a refreshing lack of western-inspired decor. With a temperature controlled wine cellar, a boot room, and even an elevator, your sore legs (did we mention the property is within walking distance to Dollar Mountain?) won't hurt for long.
