Certain towns and neighborhoods just have character. The town of Dalton Gardens has maintained its distinct sense of character.
Perhaps because Coeur d’Alene, Hayden and a mountain surround it in all directions, Dalton Gardens must exist on the merits of its own character. With nowhere to grow, it can only exist and evolve within itself.
What exists works for the people there, and it remains an appealing area, especially for buyers looking for a little extra land but still in the heart of Coeur d’Alene’s broader amenities.
Spacious lots and an overall small-town feel remain in Dalton Gardens, which has its own mayor, city council, ordinances, planning and zoning rules and community events. There aren’t many businesses within city limits, reducing the retail traffic jams of other parts of the area.
There are fruit and vegetable stands operated on the honor system. Many properties have space for animals and larger work sheds. Schools are easily accessible too — Dalton Elementary, Nearby Canfield Middle School and Coeur d’Alene High School also serve Dalton Gardens as the kids get older.
All this exists a minute away from one of Coeur d’Alene’s most active stretches — Government Way. Drive a block into Dalton Gardens from that busy roadway and it feels like a completely different place. Mature trees and breathing room between the properties is almost like a trip back in time in the best sense of the phrase.
But that nostalgic vibe doesn’t necessarily mean properties in Dalton Gardens are old. In fact, many new and remodeled homes continue to help Dalton stay relevant for homebuyers looking for the best on the North Idaho market.
Take a drive through Dalton Gardens and it’s easy to see why so little has changed and so few want to leave.
