Lux Living in The Colony!
Timeless executive home in upscale bedroom community of Eagle ID.
Over the past two decades Boise Idaho has risen in prominence as a destination location for affluent buyers looking for luxury living in an outdoor oriented / family friendly environment. And through it all, Eagle—a quaint bedroom community for Boise’s executives and entrepreneurs—has become the undisputed destination of choice for those looking for the best within the Treasure Valley.
Why? First and foremost is Eagle’s unique location within the valley. Located North and West of the bulk of the valley’s population centers, Eagle is the closest of all of Boise’s outlying communities to the vacation and outdoor recreation destinations to the North—The resort towns of McCall and Cascade, the world class skiing of Tamarack and Brundage, the endless Idaho wilderness area and three major river systems. This means a 30-to-40-minute head start when heading to the mountains for some downtime. In addition, Eagle commuters enjoy a twenty-minute commute to downtown Boise, the capital building, Boise State University, and most of Boise’s major employers.
The Boise River and its 27-mile greenbelt walking path cut through the heart of Eagle and provide safe, outdoor activities for Eagle’s active residents. It’s quaint downtown corridor still reflects its small-town origins where many of its original buildings still operate as going concerns. And surrounding this quintessential small-town Idaho downtown core, lie a variety of richly landscaped estate and acreage lots, accenting the Boise River and the greenery not seen in other Boise suburbs. (As a result, Eagle’s real estate appreciation leads the valley. Median prices are over double that of the metropolitan area at large.)
If Eagle is among the best that Boise area has to offer, the Cove Colony community is among the best Eagle has to offer. Consisting of 1-acre estate lots, the Colony is minutes of downtown Eagle and walking distance to the 500-acre Eagle Island State Park and the amenities of the Boise River. It also features direct walking access to Eagle High School and a ten-minute drive to a major shopping areas.
Poised on a corner lot, this beautiful custom built home by Emmett Price features an east facing back yard so afternoon and evening barbecues are shaded, comfortable and cool. A back patio that runs the length of the house features an outdoor kitchen (Stainless steel BBQ, gas burner and ice storage built-in and two separate islands) a large covered seating area and a unique sandstone boulder firepit. The water fountain is strategically placed outside the master bedroom so that open windows allow the sounds of water splashing on rocks to drift through the master suite and dining room.
A variety of large trees line the back yard, providing seclusion and privacy. The yard is large enough for the construction of a pool, if desired, while still retaining ample room for pets and kids to enjoy the large expanse of perfectly manicured grass.
Inside, your guests will feel warmly invited and find plenty of formal & informal living space in this classic 4000+ sqft layout. Upon arrival, the grand entry leads directly into the formal dining or sitting area.
Currently owned by one of Boise’s pre-eminent caterers, the gourmet kitchen has a 6 x9 slab granite countertop and a fabulous walk-in butler's pantry. Appliances include a Viking gas cooktop with pot-filler, Bosch Dishwasher, Ge Monogram built-in refrigerator and microwave, Frigidaire double ovens, under cabinet beverage cooler, and a Scottsman ice maker, all accented by an abundance of storage cabinets. A small circular eating area opens to the fireplace and television in the connected great room and is perfect for breakfast as it takes in the morning sunlight. It also walks out directly to the backyard oasis and outdoor cooking area.
The master suite also walks out to the backyard and its own patio. The walk-in closet is superbly appointed with lots of hanging space and the bathroom features his and hers vanities, a walk in (or roll in) 3-head shower and a soaking tub.
There are a total of 4 bedrooms in all but with three bedrooms, living, dining, and laundry (featuring a built-in desk for sewing or crafting) all on the main level, this home lives like a single-story house. A bedroom and full bath upstairs along with a bonus, gives you an array of options. Use the second master as a Jr suite and office or as separate living quarters. There is ample storage to be found throughout, especially in the mud room or drop zone are where there is a built in desk. Also a crafting or sewing work station with built in storage in the very spacious laundry room!
The 4-car side garage opens to a basketball court and includes what has to be one of the largest banks of garage cupboards in all of Eagle and has a 5th overhead door to the backyard for easy access with large lawn equipment. It currently features a workout area with a mounted TV that will stay with the property.
