STAR, IDAHO – Beautiful open spaces, new subdivisions, and equestrian properties dot the pastoral landscape in Star, Idaho’s small, growing city. Star delivers the perfect combination of nearby opulence with rural sensibility. With plenty of undeveloped lands, active agriculture, and rolling hills, Star has untapped potential for its future.

The city has experienced substantial growth over the last 20 years, from residential homes to highway infrastructure. This rural town of over 11,000 is now more accessible and centrally located in the valley than just two decades ago when it was isolated from surrounding cities by vast farmlands. Even with the unprecedented growth Star has experienced, it remains a small town.

Star’s friendly hometown atmosphere and country setting make it an ideal place to live and raise a family. The strong community participation and local events create opportunities for new residents to become involved. Star’s River Walk Park is a secret gem known only to locals and is still quiet and pristine (although the word is quickly getting out).

You’ll find kids—big and small—at the local skate park and families enjoying outdoor summer movies in the park. Because of Star’s size, crime is almost non-existent, and residents feel safe while out on a morning run or walking the dog. And there’s a good chance of bumping into the Mayor while pumping gas at the local gas station.

Star is everything you’d want in a country setting and more. Star delivers on authentic, small-town life with friendly neighbors, traditional festivals, and one of the best 4th of July firework shows in the valley!


Star is a growing community with many wide-ranging developments. Several homes offer stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges— Squaw Butte to the north, the Boise Foothills to the east, and the Owyhee Mountain Range to the south.

While young families take advantage of this friendly country setting, it is also quickly becoming a retirement community in the Treasure Valley. With developments built along the Boise River, complete with tennis courts and miles of walking trails, retirees see the advantage of cashing out of their existing home and purchasing a luxury home here, embracing a more relaxed way of life.

If a quiet, spacious setting is what you desire, with all the homegrown goodness of a small town, then Star is where you’ll want to put down roots and call home.
