Neighborhoods in Northeast Boise

The East End Historic District: This charming little pocket in the “flats” of the East End includes homes built in the early 1900’s through the 1930’s, including the treasured historic mansions on Warm Springs Boulevard. Check out East Bannock between Elm and Pierce—such a dreamy stretch of homes! Homes in this area are among the most expensive in the valley with locals thanks to their amazing access to hills, trails, the river and downtown. 

I find that because the North End has been featured in so many magazines and web articles over the last decade, many folks moving here who have fallen in love from afar sometimes refuse to see homes in the East End because it’s not on their radar and they worry about sacrificing everything they’ve heard about the more famous North End. While this area is much smaller than the North End, and certainly less famous, it is no less desirable. I would argue that people from the area actually place a higher premium on the historic East End because of its location. From the East End it’s much easier to access the river, downtown, Whole Foods, Boise State, Lucky Peak Reservoir and a number of favorite destinations. Don’t get me wrong—the North End is amazing, but if you’re longing for a charming bungalow on a tree-lined street in a location with solid price appreciation, don’t exclude the East End.

Foothills East: Foothills East is a neighborhood largely built in the early 80’s. Love 80’s modern? Longing for vaulted cedar ceilings, multi-levels and assorted views? This housing style is coming back—we’ve seen some fun remodels in this neighborhood in recent years. Foothills East was developed with a lot of open foothills space and includes a city park around a pond. Homes in the area tend to be larger and are a great upsizing option for those who still want a close-in location but are looking for more space.

Harris Ranch: If you’re looking for a new, modern subdivision, Harris Ranch is a place to consider. Larger homes on smaller lots are popular with all sorts of buyers, from young professionals to growing families to downsizing baby boomers. The location affords easy access to the outdoors with both foothills trails and the river greenbelt system right in the neighborhood. Bown Crossing, an upscale district of shops and restaurants, is just across the river from this neighborhood and new commercial projects are in development. The area supports a highly active lifestyle with both single-family and townhome options from a variety of respected builders. There are some resale options available too that are quite sought-after.

The Terraces: This is a retirement community that opened in the fall of 2015. While a local Realtor cannot sell units at The Terraces—you’ll want to contact them directly—I do want to mention it. The Terraces offers both apartments and cottages that include amazing dining (both a dining room and bistro), library, workout facilities, and community spaces all in a gorgeous setting. I had lunch with a client who downsized here recently and she’s completely thrilled to be living in this beautiful place. For those over 55 looking for turn-key living I think this is a place worth considering.

Warm Springs Mesa: Homes in “the Mesa” were developed in the 70’s. This popular area sits east of Foothills East with slightly older homes, many with views. This neighborhood is a bit farther out and up than Foothills East. It’s a nice area.

Boulder Heights: Boulder Heights sits above Warm Springs Mesa and homes are newer than the mesa. There are some large view homes in Boulder Heights at relatively strong pricing.
