This $1.6 Million House Has Been in Boise’s North End for 111 Years
When you look at the gorgeous kitchen in this home, it's hard to believe that this home has been standing proudly on North 18th Street for over a century!
According to a 1979 National Register of Historic Places nomination seeking to make 427 homes, a church and an elementary school in Boise's North End part of the federal government's list of buildings worth preserving due to their historical significance, this home at 1301 N 18th Street has been there since 1910. It's part of what's known as The Harrison Boulevard Historic District, which was accepted into the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
The future owners of this 4,469 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom bungalow gets to keep the official market showing that it's listed in the register by the United States Department of the Interior in recognition of it's significance to Idaho's heritage. That's pretty cool to be able to say!
Now, the home doesn't look exactly like it did back in 1910. According to the listing, it's been restored and went through a recent remodel that made the master bedroom something to really envy! It's now a master suite with a walk-in closet, full bathroom and it's own sitting area!
The home recently sold for an undisclosed amount, but it was initially listed for $1,570,000. Looking at the Ada County Assessor's website it's insane to see how the value of this historic home has just exploded over the past two decades. In 2000 its assessed value was $205,700. By 2010 it was valued at $414,000. In 2018, it was knocking on the door of becoming a million dollar home at $925,400.The last time it was for sale was in 2015 when the list price was $679,000.
Curious what a home this old looks like? Take a look around! We think its cool balance of the home's historic charm and some modern upgrades!
