POCKET NEIGHBORHOOD:

A cluster of neighboring homes placed together around a shared open space offering a sensible, compact, close-knit community, not dominated by cars. Each home has a clear sense of individuality, situated near the places you learn, work, shop and play.

URBAN COTTAGES:

A small home can feel and function large with ample light,
sufficient storage and well-designed living space. Your Urban Cottage is the Smart Car of homes – cozy, well-crafted
and cost efficient. Yet elegant in its simplicity.

KNOW YOUR BUILDER:

The team at Neighborhood Homes has an accumulated 100 years experience in home building!  Neighborhood Homes is owned by NeighborWorks Boise (formerly Neighborhood Housing Services, Inc.) Operating since 1982, NeighborWorks Boise is a private non-profit organization (501(c)3) whose mission centers around “Healthy Homeownership” for Idaho’s underserved population segments. NeighborWorks Boise offers an array of homeownership programs, including counseling, coaching and lending as complements to the homebuilding efforts of Neighborhood Homes. We serve our community by also sponsoring the annual events Paint the Town and Rake Up Boise. All proceeds from sales are used to further our mission.

10 Minutes to Work

PARK YOUR KAYAK, NOT YOUR CAR.
A short commute is key to a healthier, less-stressful lifestyle. More walking or biking reduces time wasted in gridlock and allows more time each day to do what you enjoy most.

75 Feet to Parking

LESS AUTO. MORE MANUAL.
Parking is purposely placed away from many of our Urban Cottages. Residents stroll through the commons to their front doors, creating more natural occasions to walk, enjoy the outdoors, and socialize with a neighbor.

100 Yards to Gardens
and Gathering Places

GETTING THE DIRT
ON YOUR NEIGHBORS

Walk to the community garden and care for the garden with neighbors who know and care for one another. It’s a nearby opportunity to get your hands dirty with those who live nearby.

DO THE MATH
Studies show it costs roughly $290 per year to commute 1 mile. By living close in, you can eliminate 20 miles each day stuck in traffic and save as much as $5,800 a year.

45 Steps to the Mail

MAIL IT IN
Forget about staying inside all the time. Mailboxes clustered in a kiosk increase casual interactions among caring neighbors.

2 Blocks to the Bus Stop

UNWIND FROM THE GRIND
When it is time to go, let someone else drive. A short walk to the bus stop will get you where you need to be without the need to be behind the wheel.
