Embrace The Good Life In Southwestern Idaho
Welcome To The Treasure Valley
Treasure Valley real estate encompasses a broad range of lifestyles; including country living, suburban living, city living, riverside living and mountain living (to name a few). The Treasure Valley is generally considered the Boise metropolitan area and the surrounding communities, which include Ada County (Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Star), Canyon County (Caldwell, Middleton, Nampa) and Gem County (Mountain Home).
The name “Treasure Valley” was coined in 1959 to reflect the “treasure” chest of resources and opportunities that the region offers. Previously, the area was known as the “Boise River Valley”. Today, the Treasure Valley is the most populated metropolitan area in Idaho. Native American tribes roamed much of the valley as far back as the late 1700s. During the gold rush of the mid 1800s, farmers and ranchers primarily settled in the valley, initially to supply the nearby mining communities. Many of the earliest settlements were homesteads, with some still being owned today by heirs of the original homesteaders.
One of the milestones for creating a strong economic impact was when Hewlett-Packard (HP) purchased 150 acres in 1973 and built their large regional campus. The HP campus focused around research and development of laser printing technology. Today, HP Inc. still employs over four thousand employees in the Boise area. Another cornerstone of the local economy is Micron Technology, which hosts its regional manufacturing and global headquarters in Boise.
The Treasure Valley has an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities as well. Within minutes from downtown, residents can enjoy snow skiing, boating, fishing, hiking, whitewater rafting, hunting, golfing and bicycling. In addition, Boise and the surrounding areas have an abundance of natural reserve areas and parks to enjoy.
Real estate in the Treasure Valley offers something for everyone. Boise itself offers a vast array of housing and neighborhood choices, from the chic vibe of the North End to communities nestled in the nearby foothills. Meridian is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation and offers planned developments with a focus on quality of life. If space is what you are lookingfor, you’ll enjoy many housing choices in the surrounding communities with acreage.
Whether you’re looking for urban high-rise living, a sprawling estate in the country or a perfect suburban dwelling, the Treasure Valley has something to offer for everyone.
