Key essentials found in every Urban Series home

There are many attributes that make the Urban Series by Blackrock Homes appealing. While price is always a consideration, more discerning buyers are seeking modern conveniences and long-term value as additional advantages.

Low maintenance is the overarching theme of this collection, with a standard set of specifications that are a level up from other new construction homes. Over the years, the design team at Blackrock Homes has continually tweaked these designs to complement current trends while offering new and fresh interior finishes and colors on an annual basis. Most recently, the carpentry specs were enhanced with additional trimwork and faux dormer windows on the exterior elevations, and wainscoting and crown moldings in select areas of the interior spaces.

Here’s a closer look at six characteristics that we believe are essential for Low Maintenance Living to feel more like “home”…


Exterior Lighting: Each home has two coach lights that bookend the double garage door, along with a front door sconce, all designed with a photocell sensor to automatically turn on as skies darken. Additionally, a secondary sconce (on a switch), is located at the patio.


Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring: This flooring product has continued to improve over the years with its realistic look and durability. It’s a popular choice for households with young children or pets, notably for being impervious to water.


Well-Equipped Kitchen: Usually the centralized hub on every home, this space really shines with large undermount sinks and stainless steel gas ranges, dishwashers and microwaves by Whirlpool.


Storage: Ample storage was top of mind for Blackrock Homes when these floor plans were designed. You’ll see generous pantries and closets, in addition to bedroom closets that offer shelving, storage cubes and hanging bars.



Pocket Doors: Blackrock’s pocket doors are built on-site, not from kits or pre-fabrication; they are designed to be sturdy and maintenance free. These are not your Moms and Dads pocket doors.


Patio: These patios provide the perfect space to enjoy our 3-season Idaho weather with several designs offering partial to fully-covered patio designs. There’s more than enough space for most furniture configurations, including a barbeque.

Underscoring the low maintenance theme, lawncare is provided through HOA. To learn more about the Urban Series at Edington, please contact Angie at or 208.250.2774.
