Boise Neighborhoods


Boise, Idaho is a constantly growing area. One of the perks of moving to this wonderful capital city is that it's a bit different from large cities in other states. Boise has the best of both worlds- it has a thriving nightlife, marvelous restaurants, fun events, and plenty of shopping. However, just a skip, hop, and jump away are the beautiful mountain sunsets, the serenity that comes with listening to the flowing of the river, and stunning, winding nature paths that lead to some of the best camping the world can offer. Yes, Boise is a unique place to be. This just begs the question: if Boise is so great, what sorts of places are available for purchase? Luckily, there are many new subdivisions and apartment buildings being built. Here is a sampling of what awaits new buyers.

One Nineteen is an interesting, new condo building at 10th and Grove in Boise. This complex boasts industrial, modern design stylings and has 26 condos. Because it is in downtown Boise, extra measures have been taken to ensure that all residents are safe and have safe places to store belongings as well as secured, underground parking. Each condo has a breathtaking view with floor to ceiling windows, anywhere from ten to fourteen-foot ceilings, and contemporary kitchen and bathroom designs that include energy efficient appliances. Upon purchase of one of these high-end condominiums, residents will find their new residence move-in ready. It's important to note that this complex is on the higher end of the pricing scale, though it definitely lives up to the hype.

Moving a bit farther into Boise, Park Place at Barber Station is a collection of townhomes. Since it is in a location that is close to the Greenbelt and trails through the foothills, those who love the outdoors may feel right at home in a Park Place townhome. The neighborhood boasts a vast amount of space including dedicated walking paths and great lawn areas to allow for fun sports and other activities like picnicking. Almost next door to the neighborhood is where the Idaho Shakespeare Festival performs during the summer months, and residents of the neighborhood can easily pop on into downtown Boise as it's not a far drive. Park Place also provides access to a fitness room as well as a community pool and clubhouse.

Pine Tree Village is another townhome experience that will blow the mind of anyone looking to build. Because so many townhouses are built with the idea that they are identical, the builders at Pine Tree made a decision to stand out. The idea behind this neighborhood that each home will be unique to the buyer- that equates to custom upgrades that are, shall we say, on the house! Each homebuyer has the ability to choose complimentary upgrades such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, higher quality carpeting and hardwood floors. Plus, there is a community pool. This lovely little neighborhood is perfectly located with easy access to the freeway and is close to many conveniences such as the Boise Towne Square Mall and Edwards Cinema. It's also a great location for those who work in downtown Boise or Meridian since the freeway is just a stone's throw away.

There's a neighborhood located in southeast Boise called Painted Ridge that could be the perfect place to build or buy a home. Painted Ridge is ten minutes from Lucky Peak Park and residents are also living near the historical Oregon Trail. Being slightly offset from the hustle and bustle of the city center, this neighborhood is allowed a sense of peace and quiet without being more than a few minutes' drive from the downtown. This means that purchasing a home in Painted Ridge is great for folks who work in Boise, students attending Boise State, and for those who like the idea of being close to everything while still enjoying the outdoor scenes that Idaho has to offer.

Winter's Run is located in South Boise, an area known for it's quieter, calmer settings. This neighborhood is a bit different than many others in that Jayo, the construction company, decided that they preferred a neighborhood that wasn't filled with cookie cutter homes. Instead, there are parameters that allow for almost complete customization of each home. Lots are competitively priced, so if a custom home sounds right, then Winter's Run may be worth a look.

Devonshire is located a short distance from the Boise Airport. This little neighborhood community is perfect for those looking to build, but not at too high of a price. There is a neighborhood pool for residents to enjoy, open areas for picnicking and sports, and a playground. Devonshire is in a great area with easy access to shopping centers and downtown Boise. Golfers will enjoy the close proximity to many prominent golf courses, and for those who love to have fun at a waterpark on a cool day, Roaring Springs is close and great for cooling off on hot summer days. Lots are still available to build on, so go check it out!

Living in Boise could be one of the best decisions to make, and with many different options at various price points, who wouldn't jump at the chance to live in a place with some of the most gorgeous sunsets, walking paths, and community spirit? Let Idaho be the next place to call home, and let Boise show you the best homes and the best time.
