Quincy Vrecko, RE/MAX Kelowna’s waterfront specialist, shares some of the best features of a waterfront home.
Owning a waterfront home in the Okanagan offers one of the best lifestyles in British Columbia. Once a small beach town, now Kelowna and surrounding area is home to some of the most spectacular waterfront homes and luxury properties.
“I have seen some amazing homes in the Okanagan over my career. When a waterfront home has these 3 features, is sure to impress. Nothing is better than the living the ultimate Okanagan lifestyle on the water.”
Here are Quincy’s top 3 picks for the best features of a waterfront home:
Dock with boat lift
Most waterfront homes have a dock or the ability to build a dock. Having your own dock is one of the best perks of owning a waterfront home. This allows the homeowner the ability to have private moorage so a boat lift is a must. There are many rules regarding dock licenses, read our recent blog for more information.
Outdoor seating areas
The key to outdoor living in the Okanagan is to have multiple seating areas throughout the property. This allows the homeowner to have options such as full sun, shade, view of the lake or pool, quiet areas and spaces for large gatherings. The key is to keep any patio furniture comfortable and easy to care for. This is where you go to relax!
Pool or beach house
Whether or not the waterfront home has a pool, a pool house (or beach house) is a must. A perfect pool house should have a bathroom with a shower and a changing area. This allows the homeowners and guests to get ready for the pool or a swim in the lake without having to go inside the house. This also keeps sand and water outside!
Like many luxury finishings, the sky’s the limit when it comes to a pool house. You can include a kitchenette or bar and even a lounging area with TV.
