  •  We own a 3-acre parcel just outside Idaho City (2+ / 0-)

    which is 30-40 minutes east of Boise. It's an old mining town but has good amenities, i.e. good restaurants, stores, etc. And, a lot of historic buildings along Main Street.

    Our parcel is in a gated development of 3 to 5 acre parcels; about a third of them have been built on, the rest are still just vacant land.

    Our parcel borders National Forest land. It has telephone and electricity available along the road and has been perc tested and approved for septic. It has some really nice mountain views.

    The development has building/architectural restrictions so no prefab or mobile homes are allowed. Also has an active homeowners association.

    With the recession, parcels like ours are going for $25,000 to $30,000.  

    Kool-Aid, man, Kool-Aid's the stuff to drink ... For fellows whom it hurts to think. (with apologies to AE Housman)
