Iconic Eagle Idaho Bridge with waterfall and stream

Welcome to Eagle Idaho

One of the Best Places to Live

My town of Eagle is a peaceful and scenic place nestled between the Boise River and the foothills. In recent years it has become an Idaho relocation favorite – a “Best Place” to buy a home. With a current population of around 30,000, Eagle was recently lauded in the national press as the “Happiest Place in Idaho”, and I agree. This is where you will find the well-known Eagle Island State Park and a quaint historical downtown with shops and restaurants.

The weather is enjoyable and the city has easy access to McCall, the Snake River, and all the recreational opportunities of the Idaho mountains. The City of Eagle is well funded and makes continuous improvements to its portion of the Boise River Greenbelt and its local park system.

Eagle real estate is available in a range of prices and lifestyle areas. To learn more about anything specific, such as why Eagle is so special, feel free to reach out to me. I’m always happy to talk. Message or call me at 208-900-2534.

The gated entry gives way to a meandering driveway leading upward to an open cul-de-sac.

From your first moment at the top of the property, feelings of seclusion and serenity are felt as the views of every horizon become visible.

Impressive home elements and endless amenities abound.

The design of the main home provides an open and spacious living area where luxury elements, custom built-ins, and window orientations perfectly frame the skies.

The detached residence provides a private suite for guests or makes an exceptional home office.
