Rim & Foothill Homes

Let's Find Yours

Big views and blue skies.

A great part of living in Eagle, Idaho is the stunning views. The “Eagle Rim” and “Foothills of Eagle” provide magnificent vantages on both sides of the Treasure Valley. Whether you’re looking for mountain views, city lights, or the tree-lined channel of the picturesque Boise River, it’s here.

Eagle Rim Homes might overlook one of two golf courses and provide direct views of the northern foothills, including the lights of Bogus Basin Resort. Because of their east-west orientation, you’ll experience some of the most incredible sunsets in all of Idaho.

Eagle Foothill Homes sit above the valley to the north, nestled in elevated lots with 180-degree views of the city below and the Owyhee Mountains in the distance. Many of these homes are on larger lots, ranging from one to five acres. The foothills location makes for full southern sun exposure and, of course, the most colorful sunsets. With so much land it’s a great place for animal owners and vineyards.

Depending on your lifestyle and what it is you are looking for exactly, I can lead you to the Eagle home of your dreams. Feel free to reach out at 208-900-2534 or let me exactly what you’re looking for on this form.
