Ten Things I love About Phillippi
Expertly Designed and Constructed ADU
This beautiful property includes a nearly-finished, fully-permitted Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). With extra high ceilings, skylights, and a smart floorplan, this ADU will be gorgeous when finished. The difficult work is complete-building is constructed, roof and exterior complete, plumbing and electrical roughed in including connected sewer and water supply. The floorplan includes a full bath, kitchen, bedroom, and living space. The next owner can complete the ADU as planned, or could opt to finish as an amazing workshop, artist studio, or incredible home office.
The grounds at Phillippi are amazing! I love the feeling of being apart from everything when arriving at this home-it has a cabin in the woods feeling that provides such a sense of peace and calm. From the towering trees along Phillippi Street to the beautiful assortment of conifers and deciduous trees on the property, the landscaping is beautiful and designed for privacy. This wooded oasis includes Blue Spruce, Colorado Spruce, Jeffrey Pine, Columnar Red Oaks and a large variety of medium sized deciduous trees. The exterior water is from a well and is all automated.
Condition & Affordability
Wow-I love that the water heater, air conditioning and furnace are all new in 2022 and the roof is a 50-year roof that is less than 5 years old! With added attic insulation, the utility bills are LOW-level pay numbers monthly are $67 for gas, $54 for power, and $29 for water.
I love homes built in the mid-century. The quality of construction and sturdiness of these homes cannot be beat and the aesthetic style is timeless. This home boasts characteristic details such as the rosestone fireplace, original cabinets with vintage chrome knobs, custom built-ins in all rooms, hardwood floors, and rambling mid-century ranch style.
I love this living room. With views to the private, lush front yard, this is the perfect room to curl up by the fireplace and read a book or hang out and catch a movie. The hardwood floors are warm and beautiful and the vibe is restorative.
City bus is nearby plus walk to the Hillcrest library, Albertson's and a number of restaurants just blocks away. This central location is about ten minutes to most everything in Boise.
I love the connectedness of an open concept-it makes for a high level of livability and comfort. The opening between the kitchen and living room creates a connected, open greatroom with easy flow to the covered backyard patio.
This home was built to be ADA compliant and boasts a true wheelchair-accessible bathroom with roll-up sink, wide doorway and zero clearance shower. The back door is extra wide with a zero-clearance exit and ramp to the back patio. All hallways and doors are wide and accessible. This is an amazing home for someone with mobility needs or for anyone to age in place.
I love brick houses. My second house was a brick rancher and maintaining it was so easy. Brick looks beautiful, provides added insulation and quiet, and doesn't require painting. There is nothing like a brick exterior for curb appeal, low maintenance and high function.
With a large lot and screen of towering pines in front, this home has an unusually private feel. I love the feeling of privacy this house affords-walking up to the front door feels like entering a sweet, woodsy oasis! The way the home is sited, it feels private from every room and from the back yard, too.
