The defining feature of a Sun Valley vacation home, the triple butterfly roof is an elegant contrast to the areaâ€™s traditional pitched barn-style roofs. Designed by Gretchen Wagner, principal architect at Scape Design Studio, its soaring angles permit sweeping views of the local mountainscape. Wall-to-wall triple-paned Loewen windows line almost every room, ensuring the house is a cozy getaway for winter family ski trips as well as a sunlit oasis in summertime.
