Most Expensive Zip Codes: 83353, Estate of the Day
For the next couple of weeks we will be checking out some homes in the most expensive zip codes in the United States, up today, 83353 . This zip code includes Sun Valley, Idaho, a popular resort community for hiking, skiing and other nature activities. This zip code has a median price of $1,630,000 with an appreciation rate of 266% since 1990. The area is a popular spot for second homes, especially for those on the West Coast. The area gets its fair share of celebrity attention and casino mogul Steve Wynn, John Kerry, Demi Moore and self-help guru Tony Robbins have all spent time here. Ernest Hemingway was a part time resident in the area for many years.
Today's home has some of the rustic touches such as rough hewn logs that often mark the luxury homes in the area. This Sun Valley lodge has four bedrooms and the master bedroom/office is located on the main level. There is a separate guest/children's wing. This isn't the most expensive home in the area by a long shot but it earns points for combining Western style with contemporary design (although the lady-painted bathroom is a bit off-putting) It's a lot more character than some other homes I've seen in the area.. This home is listed at $4,875,000.
