Beautiful Open Space
If a quiet country setting is what you’re desiring with all the homegrown goodness of a smalltown, then Star is where you’ll want to plant your roots and call home.
Star’s friendly hometown atmosphere and country setting is the ideal place to live and raise a family. The strong community participation and events excites new residents to get involved. Star’s River Walk Park is a secret gem only the locals know about and is still quiet and pristine. Locally owned restaurants like Sully’s and Star Country Café make you feel welcomed and part of the family.
It’s fun to shop the quirky stores along State Street. You’ll find kids big and small at the local skate park. There are outdoor summer movies in the park. Because of Star’s size, crime is almost non-existent, and you feel safe our running or walking your dog. And there’s a good chance of running into the Mayor while pumping gas at the local gas station.
Yes, Star is everything you’d want in a country setting and more. Star delivers an authentic small-town life with friendly neighbors, traditional festivals, and the absolute best 4th of July fireworks show in the Valley!
Real estate agents and locals alike are saying to keep an eye on Star. It’s a growing community with several great subdivisions being built. As these communities grow, more businesses will open, and schools will be added.
Housing prices are low compared to Boise, more in line with Meridian prices. Many homes offer stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Squaw Butte is to the north, Boise Foothills to the east, and the Owyhee Mountain range to the south.
There is also the advantage of the Rural Development Loan in this area. Basically, this USDA Home Loan finances 100% of the purchase price with no down payment. That’s huge! Sure, there are a lot of steps to go through and not everyone qualifies, but the fact that it’s available is amazing.
