A Look at Eagle, Idaho

Eagle is a thriving, upscale community in northwest Ada County roughly ten miles from downtown Boise that is known for its community feel, natural settings, and luxury living. Eagle’s population, according to the 2020 U.S. Census, was a little over 30,000 residents. Like all of Treasure Valley, Eagle has grown exponentially over the last several years. It’s hard to believe that when it applied to be incorporated in 1970, it had only 300 residents. Eagle received its name from its early days when a large eagle population lived there.

A Rich Heritage

The original settlers of Eagle hoped to strike it rich when gold was found in the area, but it didn’t take long for others to settle there for agriculture and the area’s natural scenic beauty. Over the years, Eagle has evolved from a quiet farming town to a sought-after residential community. Eagle prides itself on preserving its rich history. Its historic downtown area features tree-lined streets with vintage-style lighting, charming shops and restaurants, majestic old homes, and beautiful parks. Much of modern-day Eagle is a planned community whose goal has been to maintain its small-town feel and charm while allowing for substantial population growth.

What Makes Eagle Exceptional

Eagle stands out as a premier destination for business executives and their families who are searching for the perfect balance between professional and personal fulfillment. It also attracts retirees who are searching for a well-maintained community where they can feel safe. Due to its careful planning, many of Eagle’s communities offer spacious homes, gated entrances, private amenities, and exclusive access to facilities like fitness centers, swimming pools, and clubhouses. For those searching for a more rural lifestyle with space to grow crops or own horses, Eagle also has an abundance of properties to suit their needs.
