Kelowna Luxury Homes
Kelowna luxury real estate takes three main forms in the Okanagan Valley. The highest priced luxury listings in the Okanagan Valley are often waterfront homes in the Lower Mission or along Lakeshore Drive on the east side of Okanagan Lake. These lakefront luxury homes have large private lots, detached garages, expansive outdoor living areas with pools, outdoor kitchens, gazebos and of course beautiful docks with boat lifts and secure moorage.
Similar luxury waterfront homes can be found in Lake Country in the peaceful neighbourhood of Carr’s Landing. This lakeshore community is approximately 20 minutes north of the Kelowna Airport and offers a more tranquil lifestyle.
Over in West Kelowna you will find exception luxury real estate heading north on Westside Road. Many Okanagan lakefront homes along the west side of the lake are in gated communities and offer a secure and private surrounding. There is also a large number of Okanagan lakefront properties that have been torn down in recent years to make way for new custom luxury homes. This has been a common occurrence in neighbourhoods off of Mt Boucherie Road, Pritchard Drive, Casa Loma and the Lower Mission. Some key areas in Kelowna include Hobson Road, Abbott Street, Poplar Point and Lakeshore Drive. These homes offer some of the best finds in Lakeshore properties in the Central Okanagan Valley.
Next in line are luxury estate homes in Kelowna that are on small acreages. These may have wineries, orchards or equestrian agricultural components. ALR real estate and acreages in the Okanagan Valley are often seen as the perfect opportunity for families looking to build custom estate homes with private driveways and few neighbours. If you like the rural charm these homes are often in excellent Kelowna neighbourhoods that include;
- East Kelowna
- North Rutland
- Lake Country
Large agricultural parcels are rare in the Okanagan Valley so you will find many of these parcels are less than 20 acres. This is small in comparison to the rest of BC and Alberta. The relative scarcity of arable land results in much higher prices which supports the trend in the development of Luxury homes on small farm lands.
The third option for luxury real estate properties in Kelowna are often in smaller exclusive real estate developments where the project provides Okanagan lakeview lots and the opportunity to build your dream homes. These neighbourhoods are often higher on the slopes of the valley in the Upper Mission, Mt Boucherie, Dilworth Mountain and Wilden Heights areas. The valley and lake views from these properties are simply stunning. An example is The Edge in the Upper Mission with 60 km views directly north up Okanagan Lake and a limit of 12 lots.
