There are amazing views in the Okanagan valley of our mountains and lakes. Some of the most spectacular are right here in Kelowna as we benefit from the Okanagan Lake making a 90-degree turn in the Lower Mission. Many lake view homes are situated to take advantage of this and have spectacular views. Here are a few neighbourhoods to consider if your dream is to have an amazing lake view lot or home.
Kettle Valley and Upper Mission
Back during its first years of development, this neighbourhood was awarded the best community in all of Canada. Homes along Quilchena Drive, in particular, have absolutely stunning 180-degree lake views. Some of these homes look directly north up Okanagan Lake towards Fintry which is visible over 35 km in the distance.
New neighbourhoods on the South Slope of Upper Mission also provide a great selection of newer lake view homes. These include the neighbourhoods around Kuipers Peak Park off of South Ridge Drive and new subdivisions in The Ponds and Trestle Ridge developments. This higher bench is being steadily built out with lake view lots available in phase 3 of Trestle Ridge this summer 2017.
Wilden, Clifton & McKinley
Just north of Kelowna along the lake is a beautiful and peaceful neighbourhood at McKinley Landing. This neighbourhood follows a lake view bench and features many new and older homes on spectacular lake view properties. Not too long ago McKinley Landing was thought to be a bedroom community but now with Wilden being developed between that neighbourhood and the city centre, it feels less and less remote.
Wilden has a big project underway with thousands of homes planned in its community. New lake view homes in the Rocky Point Drive area will be spectacular. Many of these are at the very top of the ridge looking west. You can visit the website to see an example of this incredible new subdivision. It defines what many moving to the Okanagan from the lower mainland or Alberta are looking for. These of course are all new lake view building lots.
One last mention of Lakeview homes in West Kelowna is the Lakeview Heights and Rose Valley areas. Lakeview Heights is an older Kelowna neighbourhood where a large number of these beautiful properties are getting updated and renovated. They offer quite possibly the best views of Kelowna as they look North East on the downtown. Over on Horizon Drive and the West Lake Road neighbourhoods are a number of excellent streets with lake view homes. This area is more established and has amazing views, one of our favourites is Scott Crescent.
Across the lake on the slopes of Mount Boucherie facing south towards the Mission is another neighbourhood features new lake view lots and lake view homes. This is in the neighbourhood of Mission Hills Winery and features many properties and customs homes over $1 million. Some lake view homes along Vineyard Drive, Pinot Noir, Ridge Blvd and Vineyard Estates have an incredible view of Okanagan Lake and Okanagan Mountain Park due south.
There are lots of options to choose from and if you are interested in finding the perfect lake view home, call the expert himself, Quincy Vrecko at Quincy Vrecko and Associates 1-250-863-8810!
