A Quick Overview of South East Kelowna

To the southeast of downtown Kelowna, you’ll find the vibrant and revitalized neighborhood of Southeast Kelowna. This older and well-established part of the city is known for well-preserved Kelowna heritage homes so that new generations of families will enjoy their legacy.

Southeast Kelowna is an interesting paradox. The flip side of the coin to the old farm homes and apple orchards are the prominent, newly constructed homes in Gallaghers Canyon Golf Club and the estate properties built on large acreages.

 

Parks and Bicycle Paths

One of the most spectacular hiking trails and mountain bike trails is at the trestles on the old Kettle Valley railway. The rail ties have been removed and the trail goes all the way to Naramata.

 

Southeast Kelowna Golf

If you prefer riding a golf cart instead of a bicycle, South Kelowna has you covered, too! When you purchase a Southeast Kelowna home, you’ll be just a short drive to Gallagher’s Golf Course and The Harvest Golf Club, a unique golf facility.

This golf course is situated on 251 acres in an urban setting. However, they take their name from the bounty of the harvest they pick, right off the golf course, every year! Through careful land management, the golf course developer planted 44 acres of apples, cherries, berries, and grapes. It’s a sustainable natural resource as well as a challenging golf course.

From the fairways of this magnificent course, you will take in breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake and the surrounding mountains. The fairways are manicured, the greens are impeccable, and the entire golf experience is like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

South-east Kelowna Homes

Southeast Kelowna homes can best be summarized in one word. Diversity. Like the people who live here, the homes are diverse in style and budget.

The most affordable homes are semi-detached homes, townhomes, and condominiums. These are typically newer construction properties that have elegant appointments, thoughtful planning, and charming architectural details. These are all in keeping with the charm of the community. The older small homes on acreages have value mostly in the 10 acre plus land value.
