1945 S. Creekside Lane, Boise 

This 30-year-old residence is surrounded by tall trees, a thick lawn and lush landscaping, giving it a retreat-like feel. Homeowners in the River Run subdivision are not permitted to build privacy fences, so the use of foliage between homes instead of dog-eared cedar planks makes this .21-acre property and the surrounding houses appear both interconnected and private.

A ribbon of clerestory windows pops up from the top of this house to bring light into a narrow loft, the only upper room in the dwelling. The rest of the home's open floor plan is located at ground level.

From the front door, a living room with a vaulted ceiling flows into the formal dining room. The spacious kitchen is hidden just beyond a stand-alone bookcase. From the kitchen sink there are views of unhurried neighborhood traffic. It's easy to imagine watching morning dog-walkers through the floor-to-ceiling atrium window in the roomy breakfast nook while eating fresh fruit and sipping coffee.

In the sizable master bedroom, a white brick fireplace provides ambiance for snuggling, and there is also a door leading to the verdant back yard. The master bathroom has clerestory windows above the vanity mirror to naturally illuminate the bathroom counter where morning beautification rituals take place.

Pros: Open floor plan in desirable River Run neighborhood.

Cons: No fence permitted around yard, limiting pet ownership.

Open House: Saturday, July 10, 1-3 p.m.
