BOISE -- An historic Boise estate is now up for sale.

The five-bedroom home located at 1320 E. Warm Springs Avenue is the handiwork of architect Kirtland Cutter. Cutter, who designed the Idaho Building for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, styled the Boise home in the Italo-Spanish fashion.

The home was commissioned by Leo J. Falk for him and his wife, Helen, in 1922. The house has remained in the family for all this time, passing down to the Falk's daughter: Jane Falk Oppenheimer. Jane, after growing up in the home, also raised her family there with her husband, Arthur Oppenheimer.

The landmark Boise home features a built-in two-car garage, which was a novelty and an advanced concept for the time the place was built. Another touch is the geothermal pool.

With the house on the market for the first time, there's also a chance for you to get a look inside. There will be an Open House/Mother's Day Garden Party at the home from 2 to 4 p.m. on May 13.

Be prepared for a steep price tag though. Right now, the home price is set at $2.2 million.
