What's the Difference Between Greenbelt and Waterfront Properties?

Main Treasure Valley Life

In Boise, we are fortunate enough to be a growing city in a growing metropolitan area that also has easy access to nature. In many cases, the nature is right off your back patio. There are a number of subdivisions that back up to the Boise Greenbelt as well as waterfront properties that face the Boise River or neighborhood ponds. What is the difference between these two types of properties?

Greenbelt properties back up to the walking and biking path called the Greenbelt. It is a 25-mile long paved path that stretches from Lucky Peak in Boise to Eagle Island State Park in Eagle. While the Greenbelt follows the Boise River, the properties does not touch the water. However, they provide amazing views year-round. Being next to the Greenbelt also encourages residents to get outside and be active.

Waterfront properties are when the property line ends at a body of water. This can include the Boise River or neighborhood lakes and ponds. Many high-end luxury communities have man-made ponds or lakes within them. They provide an additional touch of nature thanks to waterfowl, frogs, and fish. Some communities allow residents to swim or fish in them to provide additional entertainment opportunities. If a community has water features and/or waterfront properties, check with the HOA to view these rules.

One excellent example is Laguna Pointe in Eagle. Take a look at the 90 second driving community tour of the subdivision.
