3030 N. 28th St., Boise 

A refreshing plunge into the rectangular pool in this dwelling's back yard will make coming home after a hot summer day a real treat. Vacationing guests will appreciate having a 480-square-foot cottage situated just steps away from the pool's concrete deck.

At dinnertime, ripe tomatoes from a secret garden at the rear of the .52-acre property will enrich any meal. When the sun goes down friends can gather around the in-ground fire pit to toast marshmallows and tell stories.

The main house has an eclectic feel to it fits nicely in Boise's historic North End. The 61-year-old residence appears to have been expanded and remodeled over time. The original garage has been turned into a step-down family room and a bedroom has been created in the attic above it. Today, a three-car carport provides plenty of space for parking.

The surprisingly large master bedroom looks to have been created by knocking out a wall between two smaller bedrooms. Separate his-and-hers closets come with built-in drawers and cabinets, reducing the need for the bulky furniture that takes up floor space. The master bedroom opens to a hot tub that sits on a redwood deck overlooking the pool and cottage.

Pros: North End home with refreshing pool and cozy guest cottage.

Cons: Eclectic appearance may be too quirky for some buyers.

Open House: Saturday, July 31, 1-4 p.m.
