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.
Gorgeous custom-built home on an acre loaded with custom amenities! In the highly desirable Eagle sub, The Colony, this home is warm and inviting. Every detail was carefully planned from the grand entry with sweeping spiral staircase, the circular flow pattern for entertaining or chasing kids around, to the 8000 lineal feet of tubing for hot water radiant flooring throughout the entire home. All 3 levels! That are either covered with travertine tile or new carpet. Which also has 4 zones and incredibly, a thermostat control for every room! There is also a furnace for backup and 2 CA units.
The main level master suite with vaulted ceiling and sitting area shares a cozy double-sided fireplace with the jetted soaker tub in the bathroom. Large windows allow loads of natural sunlight and views in. And of course, a double headed walk-in shower, jetted garden tub with fireplace and the generously sized walk-in closet won't disappoint!
Every closet is a walk-in and has a melamine shelving package, every countertop is granite with the exception of the newly updated kitchen which has a solid slab of Taj Mahal quartzite on the island that seats 6! Featuring newer Thermador and Bosch kitchen appliances, a large Baking Center and the walk-in pantry which has a handy cabinet access. All this opens to the dining area, a hidden built in desk, and amazing great room with beautiful built ins surrounding a carved mantel adorned gas fireplace. You will love the huge picture windows, again letting in the natural sunlight and views of the back yard- with no back neighbors!!!
Upstairs you will find the guest quarters or 2 bedrooms, a bonus room, and a bathroom. An open loft and library are a great place to relax, and don't forget to escape to the secret room or slide down the firepole!
Every bedroom is oversized and is multifunctional. For example, the walkout lower level includes 2 bedrooms, an exercise room, and a stunning craft room like no other with sewing counters and drawers, granite countertops and plenty of storage for all your supplies! Should you need more bedrooms, both of these rooms can be easily converted. It also features a utility room that doubles as a shop, giving more room to get creative! There is plenty of play space in the rec room. Entertain family and guests with a wet bar area which is next to the wired theater room and the awesome new gym they put in! Perfect for all your gym equipment!
Head outside for a swim in the new saltwater pool! Relax in the new Vita Hot tub! Play some soccer or volleyball with friends and fam. There is an in ground trampoline and zip line for the kiddos. Enjoy the stargazing and smores, while staying warm by the cozy firepit. The lifestyle options at this property are many! For gardeners and outdoor lovers, there is a slight hill that could have terraced gardens but works as a nice little sledding hill in the winter as well! There are 3 fruit trees: Apple and Peach. Grapes on vines and berry bushes. The oversized garages hold 3 cars plus-or a 2 car and toy garage with anRV parking pad. There is a brand new governor's style half drive in the front for guests. No expense was spared in the design and building of this home and it is sure to impress! It's location on a street that ends in cul-de-sac means less cars going by in front too.
