As Idaho continues to grow there seems there seems to be new construction constantly filling up locations that used to be parking lots or fields. While new homes are certainly nice and provide fewer maintenance challenges than historic homes, they don't have they don't have the same charm as Idaho homes that were originally built at the turn of the century. Some of the newer neighborhoods feel very cookie cutter. There may be subtle tweaks to paint colors or materials used on the exteriors, but for me most part the homes are eerily similar to each other.

That is certainly not the case with the 15 homes we're about to show you. No two are alike. Some are cottages. Some are old mills. Some are historic hotels. A handful of them have been given modern updates. Others have been fully restored. A few are real fixer uppers. The price range to buy one runs the gamut. On the low end, it could cost you $150,000. On the high end? You're looking at $1 million to live in Boise's east end.
