Sun Valley home where ‘Bus Stop’ was filmed is up for sale
A sprawling estate in Idaho, where scenes from the Marilyn Monroe movie “Bus Stop” were filmed, is up for sale for $16 million.
Located in Sun Valley, Idaho, the 12-acre property includes a modern Craftsman main house, a guest house and a spacious “party barn” designed for entertaining, according to the listing.
Crews shot portions of the classic 1956 film in a former general store that has since been renovated into a 2,000 square foot guesthouse. The guest house was better known as Grace’s Diner in the film, which also starred Hope Lange. The romantic comedy-drama was directed by Joshua Logan.
The guest house now has two bedrooms and three bathrooms. The adjoining barn is a 3,000 square foot structure that includes a full kitchen, living room, two bathrooms, deck, porch, and heated garages.
The estate, 13439 State Highway 75 in Blaine County, has a total of eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and 9,434 square feet of living space.
“History and luxury blend seamlessly at this mountain estate inherited from three Sun Valley structures,” according to the official property listing.
The large windows in the split-level home offer spectacular mountain views.
“The home features warm mahogany wood accents and multiple stone fireplaces, a three-car garage, outdoor hot tub, huge fire pit, and multiple decks with water features,” toptenrealestatedeals.com wrote, a website featuring luxury and celebrity properties around the world. “Breathtaking views of Bald Mountain, as well as Smokey and Boulder Mountains, are visible from all three units on the estate. An artificial lake completes the serene aspect of the property. Private and secluded, the estate is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to the famous Sun Valley ski slopes. “
The compound has been listed for sale a few times since 2020 before last hitting the market in November 2021 at $15.995 million, according to realtor.com.
Engel & Völkers Sun Valley in Ketchum, Idaho, owns the listing.
