You might find a foreclosure in Boise in this price range, but considering the repairs that may be necessary in an older property and the upgraded finishes included here, this brand-new home looks like a cream puff.

The home's Craftsman-influenced facade and a covered concrete porch open to a sunlight-filled living room that flows into a handsome kitchen and casual dining space. The kitchen is outfitted with alder cabinets tinted a warm golden hue. Slab granite countertops, black appliances and rubbed bronze fixtures create a clean, classy backdrop.

While these main living spaces are situated on one half of the house, the private quarters are arranged on the other half. The master suite takes up the rear corner of the residence. The second bedroom has views of the front yard while the third has views of the side yard. The yard is currently a blank canvas of soil, but the price of the home includes installation of sprinklers, sod, ornamental shrubs and trees.

A two-car garage sits in the alley at the back of the property, which is located about three blocks from the bustling intersection of State Street and Glenwood in Northwest Boise. Albertsons market, a movie theater and handcrafted pizza at Pizzalchik restaurant are all located within an easy half-mile walk from the front door.

Pros: Brand-new, upgraded starter home located close to shopping and conveniences.

Cons: Subdivision still under construction.

Open House: Saturday, March 6, 1-4 p.m.
