Kelowna Luxury Real Estate Homes
There is a great selection of luxury houses to choose from. Selecting the optimal location is the first step. Being on the lake is a lot different than being across the street from the lake and a panoramic view of the lake is more desirable than a partial view of the bridge. Big, energy efficient windows bringing the view in is a staple and views are important from every room. Our natural geography makes having a lake view a reasonable want and I’ve never had a problem finding a luxury lakeview home for anyone in the 20 years I’ve been selling homes here. In this market supply is almost always greater than demand do discerning buyers will have plenty of options to choose from both sides of the bridge. From McKinley Landing to Kettle Valley on the Kelowna side and Fintry to Peachland on the West Side of the lake there’s a pretty wide selection of homes that come with all the bells and whistles.
Lakefront homes come in all shapes and sizes also. Some people would prefer a small two bedroom cottage style home on the lake instead of a 6,000 square feet home with a view of the water for the same price. If being on the water is important, and why wouldn’t it be, there are many communities around town to choose from. Lake Country is less congested and offers good schools and a slower pace. McKinley is a little isolated with one road in but everyone knows one another and looks after each other. The Mission area is closer to town and access to most things is easier but prices tend to be higher that other areas. West Kelowna lakefront homeowners believe that their side of the bridge is better because they avoid the punishing late afternoon sun and they enjoy their morning coffee in brilliant sunshine.
It’s the same for apartments. Some people prefer being on the lake down near the Grand Hotel and Casino with easy access to restaurants and the cultural district while others prefer being a little out of the way and living at The Cove where they can go for a morning walk and see the same regular faces every day.
Regardless of your particular wants or needs, Kelowna and area has everything you’ll ever want if you don’t flinch at the high price tags. Let me know if you want a list of homes available for sale and I’ll get a package of homes out to you today.
