Eagle, Idaho is a fantastic and cohesive city, however there are some divisions within the city. Though not actual boundaries, Eagle can easily be divided into four different sections: south Eagle, west central Eagle, east central Eagle, and north Eagle. Each part of the city has its own atmosphere, dynamic neighborhoods, and amenities.
South Eagle is the first part of Eagle that people see when they come into town from the freeway. It is the area between Chinden Boulevard and State Street. It is home to several well-trimmed and highly sought after neighborhoods that all have new and exciting homes. It is also has a golf course, many great water features and access to the Boise River for outdoor fun.
The neighborhoods in south Eagle are usually built out of several dozen ranch, craftsman, and luxury custom homes. These neighborhoods are not the usual grid system subdivisions, but rather intricate networks of curved streets for an original and serene feeling. These homes will usually be two stories high, but also come in single floor models as well. Most of these homes will have 3 – 4 bedrooms and will come with generously sized backyards.
South Eagle also has some amazing amenities for their residents. Aside from the golf course that was stated earlier, south Eagle is also home to a convenient grocery store, several great restaurants, and a handful of nice hotels.
West Central Eagle
West central Eagle is the space between State Street and Beacon Light Road from Ballantyne Lane to the western edge of the city. Neighborhoods in west central Eagle are interspersed between large farms and fields giving this area of town a great suburb to rural balance. The thing that sets these neighborhoods apart from the rest, however, is their inherent luxury nature. Most of these neighborhoods have homes that are built on larger, more extravagantly landscaped lots and are usually more custom in design.
West central Eagle is also home to part of Eagle Island State Park (the rest of it lying in south Eagle). Eagle Island State Park is a park with swimming areas, trails, historic barn ruins, and more. It is a fantastic place for photography, sightseers, wildlife watchers, and adventurers of every kind. This park isn’t not just a fun place to enjoy on a Saturday afternoon, but it is actually a large part of the city’s history. Eagle Island State Park is actually the original homestead of Truman C. Catlin, so it has special significance to both city and state history and is also a priceless part of the community.
East Central Eagle
East central Eagle is the space between west central Eagle and Garden City from Chinden Boulevard to Beacon Light Road. In east central Eagle there is the city library, a golf course, and the charming downtown streets of old Eagle. This part of Eagle is known for its distinct small town atmosphere due to its open air shops and friendly demeanor. East central Eagle is also home to many great neighborhoods to choose from.
The neighborhoods in east central Eagle are much like those in west central Eagle. They are mainly made up of custom and luxury homes in communities of about 50 to 100 homes. These neighborhoods, however, will be on smaller sized lots compared to west central Eagle—this is on average, there will be lots in east central Eagle that will be the same size if not bigger than those in west central Eagle.
North Eagle is everything to the north of Beacon Light Road. This is where the city to country balance falls away, and the communities are more rural. Not to say that there aren’t new homes still, builders are still developing neighborhoods in north Eagle.
North Eagle is a great place for those who like the great outdoors. This is because the greatest amenity that the residents get to enjoy is the Boise Foot Hills. With homes that stretch even into the farthest nooks and curves of the Foot Hills, the variety of environments is astonishing. It is a great area for a farm or a ranch as well, so if that is your goal, north Eagle is for you.
Throughout the city of Eagle, there are plenty of great neighborhoods, built by very talented and prestigious builders. Neighborhoods that are perfect for people of every walk of life. These builder have built modern, ranch, craftsman, style dwellings and every other kind of home for that matter. The subdivisions they build have everything from pools, parks and recreation areas to wide open fields for animals—or just recreation- making them some of the most sought after places to live in Idaho.
