8097 W. Courier, Boise

by

This week's home is located in a nicely maintained Northwest Boise neighborhood where pride of ownership is evident around every corner. You'll wind through quiet streets lined by modestly sized family homes surrounded by manicured lawns and tidy landscaping in order to reach this immaculate residence, which is set on a .15-acre parcel deep within the Landover Subdivision.

Light gray-beige tints the 16-year-old home's interior walls. The soft color is echoed in carpeting and sheet vinyl flooring throughout the house, as well as in the brick fireplace in the living room. The only exception to the neutral palette hides in the master suite, where a pumpkin-hued Southwest theme reigns.

A sizable office with glass doors is at the entrance. A great room with an open kitchen is situated toward the rear of the home, where a sliding glass door in the dinette opens to a large covered deck and a tidy patch of lawn. Shade trees and colorful flowers scattered around the small yard's perimeter seem to beckon the owner to stop and sip a little lemonade. The master bedroom also has a doorway that opens to the back deck.

The kitchen features oak cabinets washed in a golden hue, black laminate counters, gleaming black appliances and a wraparound breakfast bar that seats four comfortably.

Pros: Immaculate dwelling in well-kept neighborhood.

Cons: Pumpkin paint in master suite.
