Naturally, being basically across the street from the Shakespeare Festival means that River Heights real estate also lies in close proximity to the Boise River and Lucky Peak reservoir.

They also swim, fishing or run nearby on the greenbelt, which follows the river all the way to Lucky Peak and beyond.

Or for those who'd like to venture a little further out, a short car ride brings them to one of Boise's most popular eateries, the Lucky 13. It's located right near River Heights subdivision at Harris Ranch. People who buy homes for sale in River Heights head to a place like Lucky 13 not only because it's close by, but because it has a casual atmosphere. When the day has stretched out and become too long, there's nothing tastier than a delicious pizza made with fresh ingredients and a couple of beers to be shared among close friends and family.

As for the homes themselves, features such as open architecture, large windows (and window seats), ample floor and storage space, cozy fireplaces and hardwood floors are common.
