Nestled between the Boise River and Eagle foothills, the Eagle Idaho real estate market is primarily known as the luxury home market in Idaho. Some of Idaho's most prestigious homes and neighborhoods are located here, along with beautiful Idaho scenery.
Eagle, Idaho is not "just another" suburban community. Real estate developments in Eagle have done an amazing job incorporating man-made amenities (ponds, lakes, golf-courses, etc.) as well as what nature has to offer (river, trees, foothills, etc.).
It's not only residential real estate in Eagle that shows a pride of ownership. Commercial developers have also been conscientious about incorporating upscale quality in their designs, reflecting the Eagle Planning and Zoning departments focus on seamless visual and structural integration of commercial and residential construction. Building materials, colors, and signage all must pass stringent standards set by the City of Eagle.
Some of the most desirable and luxurious Eagle real estate developments are located along Eagle Rd., between Hwy 20/26 (Chinden Blvd.) and Hwy 44 (State St.). The North and South channel of the Boise River flow through here, one of the several natural amenities the area has to offer.
Eagle real estate developments in this area mostly feature lot sizes ranging from .2 to .5 acre lots. However, lots often "feel" much larger as many home sites back to ponds, golf course, or other open space. Eagle real estate listings in these neighborhoods also generally have an incredible amount of landscaping offering additional privacy.
Eagle Idaho also offers many properties on acreage, ideal for horse-lovers. Most of the acreage real estate developments are North of Eagle near the foothills. The Eagle real estate north of Floating Feather Rd is sometimes referred to as the "quiet side" of Eagle, referring to both the more rural, country feel, as well as the reduced traffic moving away from the main arteries of Eagle Rd and Hwy 44.
Homes for sale in Eagle Idaho range from patio homes, to waterfront or river-front listings, to acreage, horse properties, and view homes.
