Ambleside is a 67-unit townhouse community on 6 acres in West Boise. The design is meant to evoke an english suburb. The plan centers around a tree-lined central loop drive with a garden and classically detailed gazebo. The inner row of townhouses face the loop and the outer row faces the surrounding neighborhood. Rear entry garages occupy an access drive between the two rows so they do not face public spaces. The project includes a 2500 sf clubhouse with kitchen, lounge, exercise facilities and pool.
The first four-unit building has been built; 12 buildings are planned in 4,5,6, and 8-unit configurations. Unit sizes range from 1500 to 1950 sf. Each unit features a raised entry garden and 1-1/2 story living room at the front of the unit. Exterior finishes and colors are varied to give each unit its own identity, and the multiple-unit building finishes and details will also vary from each other.
