Idaho Homes for sale with acreage
While Boise has developed a name for itself as a hip, up-and-coming city, many people are looking for space and privacy that a neighborhood cannot offer. Acreage properties allow someone to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and have more space for themselves. Whether you are looking for 1 acre or 1,000 acres for horses, or cattle, Build Idaho can help. Also, most larger pieces of ground can be subdivided into subdivisions or individual building lots.
How big is an acre?
An acre is defined as a unit of land area equal to 4,840 square yards. Visually, an acre is equal to about 76% of a football field when you consider both end zones. Considering most residential plots of land are between 0.1 and 0.2 acres, living on a full acre offers plenty of space.
