One of the best parts of the City of Boise is the North End. It is one of the oldest sections of the city as it was the first suburban area that was built off of downtown. Among its classic streets, cottage style homes, and vintage looking shops, there is one subdivision that shines above the rest: the Dudler Subdivision. This eclectic mixture of new and old cottage and ranch style homes is the perfect place for people who want to live in a friendly neighborhood with character and amenities to boot. Nearby there are dozens of classic homes turned into shops as well as new stores and shops on each corner making it a walkable paradise. Not to mention the quick access residents have to the restaurants, venues, schools, and parks of the greater North End and downtown.
The homes in Dudler subdivision come in all shapes and sizes. There are some with as much as 2,000+ square feet and some with as little as 1,300 square feet. They also have a varying amount of bedrooms that usually varies from 3 to 4 with the occasional 2 bedroom home as well; this combination of space to room distribution makes these homes ideal for any kind of indoor activity or indoor living.

Outdoor, however, is a little different. These homes are built on anywhere from 0.14 acres to 0.18 acres that are both fenced and unfenced. This gives them optimal space for outdoor living that can be as private as the residents want it to be. These homes are all built at different points in the 20th century but have all been recently renovated to incorporate newer styles of architecture and design. These homes are highly efficient, and are aesthetically pleasing to the eye as well.
Most of these homes will have outdoor parking-- no garages. Some with awnings to park under, but most homes will either have driveway parking or street parking for their residents. Some, however, can also have RV parking depending on when and how it was built. The year it was built also affects the exterior facades and what materials were used to create them. Most of these homes will have either stucco or vinyl with the occasional stone accents.
