River & Water Homes

Let's Find Yours

Is a home by water in your future?

One of the many great things about Eagle is we have a six-mile split of the Boise River that creates an “Island”.  You’ll hear the locals say Eagle Island when describing the area. Because of the nearby water sources, there are hundreds of homesites along (or with views) of lakes, ponds, channels, and the river itself. “River and Water Homes” are the properties you’ll find in this area.

The neighborhoods are defined by green space – mature trees and lush landscaping. Popular amenities include fishing, golfing, and walking to the Boise River. A few of the bigger communities here include Banbury Meadows, Two Rivers, Island Woods, Lakemoor, Laguna Pointe, Mace River Ranch, Westwood Lakes, Streamside and Williamson Ranch.

When my Mom was the Mayor of Eagle, many of the development plans of this area were approved. I’d love to tell you the history of Eagle Island and see if there is a perfect fit for you.
