West Bench Homes for Sale
The West Bench offers a secluded feel while being centrally located, providing easy access to major thoroughfares and the interstate with the Downtown Boise core only minutes away. Anchored by Capital High School, it’s home to three gorgeous city parks, with the Boise River Greenbelt close by. Throughout the week residents here often head to the West Boise YMCA for swimming, exercise, sports, and games. The West Bench is also home to an exciting enterprise: the Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS). It’s run by an educational non-profit group, serving as a teaching urban garden/parks that demonstrates cooking and gardening to children throughout the city each year, allowing them to learn how a seed from the soil ultimately ends on the dinner plate. With walkable streets and well-manicured lawns, this is one of the best areas to live in all of Boise.

A construction boom saw the most development in the West Bench during the 1960s and ‘70s, although there are also homes that date from the ‘80s and ‘90s, along with new construction. It’s a place to put roots down, with sizeable homes and large lots that make it easy for families to expand and still remain comfortable. The Mountain View neighborhood is one of its most notable with many homes here providing gorgeous unobstructed views of the foothills and mountains in the distance. It includes many ranch-style and mid-century architectural styles, and few lots that are less than a quarter acre.
As you search through the West Bench homes, you’re likely to find many varied options like a modest 1,523-square-foot 3-bedroom mid-century brick home with a remodeled kitchen, corner fireplace and a large backyard, complete with a shed, dog run and fire pit.
