Need Home, Want Pool 

Think ahead to next year's hot summer. Think pool. It's not the time of year to be thinking about a dip in the pool, we know. But take a moment to remember July, when the thermometer hovered around 100 degrees. And as nice as a swim in one of the city's pools may have been, for some, it's hard to deal with someone else's screaming kids. If you're in the market for a house, it doesn't have to be that way next summer. Although Boise houses with pools are few and far between, it is possible to find them. We dug through the current listings to find a selection of pads with personal puddles where you can sit with a margarita in hand and listen to only the sound of the music you want to crank up.

The least expensive house on the list, at $179,000, is a three-bedroom, three-bath house built in 1978. At $93 per square foot, this tri-level in Indian Lakes looks like it could use a little TLC, but if you're on a budget and willing to put in a little work or live with its imperfection, 5305 S. Dakota Ave., with a hot tub and a pool, might be your new party pad. MLS #98397965

If Southeast Boise is your favored 'hood, pads with pools are hard to come by. This one at 2801 S. Raindrop Drive is within blocks of Ivywild Park, where one of the city's busiest pools is located. Price at $299,000, this four-bedroom, 2.5-bath home has been updated indoors and offers a cozy backyard pool and patio combo. MLS #98409460

And for those of you who cannot leave your beloved North End but think a pool of your own would be nice, check out 2301 Hillway. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, priced at $134 per square foot for a total of $350,000, this home has a lap pool shoehorned into the hillside. MLS #98408117

The most expensive listing with a pool in Boise is a house that's been on the market a while. Home Sweet Home first profiled this house in February 2008, and it's still priced at a not-so-modest $3.5 million. Located at 3316 Crescent Rim overlooking Ann Morrison Park, this four bedroom, 5.5 bath clocks in at $527 per square foot with an infinity pool, adjacent hot tub and outdoor wet bar. MLS # 98364150
