About the Property

Walk to downtown, greenbelt from the North End Cape Cod charmer

Welcome to the Black Dog House, a 1937 Cape Cod-style home in Boise's premier North End. The old world charm extends front and back with a very large Trex deck and huge park-like backyard ensconced with 75 year old trees. The house has all hardwood floors with the baths and kitchen remodeled by top Boise contractors. The baths were completed in Oct. 2012, and EVERYTHING was replaced. The kitchen is alder, stainless and granite, and filled with top cooking utensils such as Calphalon pots and Henckel knives. The downstairs features a living room, with a 42-inch flat screen HDTV (Direct TV with 175 channels) and a large sectional sofa. The Pottery Barn style dining table can seat 6. The first floor bedroom has a queen pillowtop mattress. In fact, all the bedrooms have high-end pillowtop mattresses with soft high thread count 100% cotton sheets, pillows and down duvets. The full bath downstairs, was recently remodeled in 1930's Art Deco style in a cool black and white design. Upstairs, you will find the huge master bedroom with a comfy king bed, and another flat screen TV. The 3rd bedroom has a luxurious queen bed. The upstairs full bath was redone with Italian travertine in the shower and on the floors, with all new fixtures as well.

Outside of the french doors, you will find a huge Trex deck, with gas grille and teak outdoor dining area and umbrella. The back patio has 2 lounge chairs for relaxing in the sun.

The house is located within a 5 minute walk to Starbucks, and another 5 minutes to the Albertson's grocery store. A 15 minute walk will get you to the heart of downtown Boise's vibrant core of restaurants, shopping, or the BSU shuttle if you are heading to a game. The greenbelt entrance is less than a mile and Camelsback park, the trail access point, is about 2 miles north. This is one of the few Boise homes that offers true walking distance for those not renting a car.

The house is owner managed locally, so if there is anything needed, a quick phone call can get you the information you seek. Having lived here for 20 years, I know Boise like the back of my hand, and am here to help!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I moved here to Boise in 1992 from the East Coast, and fell in love with this town almost immediately. My favorite things are running on the trails with my Lab, riding my bike, and hanging out with friends in one of Boise's many restaurants on a summer night with a glass of wine. I also ski, both downhill and XC in the winter. Other hobbies include food, wine and travel.
