The great room is perfect for entertaining, offering floor-to-ceiling windows, a sectional with seating for 20, and a 70-inch flatscreen TV with an electronic lift. Downstairs, the basement has been converted into a game room with a Ping-Pong table and a viewing room with cozy leather accent chairs. Host a weekend tournament or grab a book from the library for a relaxing afternoon. Inside, you'll have four master suites and a fifth bedroom with a day bed; outside, the enclosed back yard and patio provide the perfect backdrop for summer barbecues. Enjoy quiet mornings outdoors with a cup of coffee, or a bustling Fourth of July feast with help from the gas grill and large bistro table. What's nearby: Founder's Home is located on a dead-end street in a secluded neighborhood of Boise's historic North End. Ideally situated for relaxation or adventure, Boise is a burgeoning city, and this unique retreat is within a mile of the downtown core and foothills parks. Enjoy trail runs or archery practice at Military Reserve, or push the little ones on the swings before wandering the foothills at Camel's Back Park. Julia Davis Park is the perfect day trip, where you can get nose-to-nose with a giraffe at Zoo Boise, learn about pioneering life at the Idaho State Historical Museum, and view fine art at Boise Art Museum. Sip craft cocktails and indulge in local cuisine in the Linen District or enjoy the pizzerias, cafes, and pubs along the historic North End.
