Boise Bench Real Estate
The Boise Bench is a large and well-established section of Boise that's located southwest of Downtown Boise, directly across the Boise River. There's also a sharp rise in elevation once you cross the river and enter the area, which gives it a bench-like appearance and is the reason for the name Boise Bench. The close proximity to downtown, easy access to the rest of Greater Boise via several major routes, and affordability of many homes for sale in Boise Bench are what makes this part of the city extremely desirable. There are also several parks and other family-friendly amenities nearby.

About Boise Bench Real Estate
Not only does the Boise Bench offer a type of house for almost every type of family, but the real estate prices in this area tend to be a bit lower than average for Boise. Many of these homes also have wonderful views of downtown and the greenbelt thanks to the higher elevation of this part of Boise.
The Boise Bench has a rich history, which includes a period of time during the early 1900s when it was largely an agricultural area, before a large number of brick homes were built on spacious properties, which would make Boise Bench a great place for families to live. These character homes with generously sized yards are still prevalent in the Boise Bench real estate market today, as are a number of other types of homes.
As you'll notice in the listings above, the vast majority of Boise Bench homes for sale are single-family homes built in the mid-20th century. That said, you can also find more modern homes in certain neighborhoods, as well as a lovely selection of modest homes from earlier in the century and some extremely opulent homes. In short, there's no shortage of options when it comes to styles and sizes of the homes for sale in Boise Bench, so contact a HomeRiver Realty agent to get started on your home search.
