Our architectural, private and comfortable, lake front home overlooks the fresh water Okanagan Lake, nestled on 1.25 acres in the mountains of the interior of British Columbia, Canada. It is an new build, completed in 2011. The central focal point is the great room - perfect for families- with a large stone wood burning fireplace, asymmetrical rafters and windows overlooking the water. The kitchen is state of the art with an enormous work island, stainless steel high end appliances and a large walk-in pantry. We love great food so the kitchen is designed for cooks with full size built in separate fridge and freezer, two large ovens, induction cooktop and two dishwashers, as well as working pantry equipped with many small appliances, cooking utensils, sets of dishes/cutlery and glassware. A large screened in porch is the perfect hangout and dining spot all summer, soaking in the beauty of the Okanagan Lake morning and night. There are 5 bedrooms in the main house. The master is on the main floor with a king bed, ensuite bathroom and french doors opening on to a small deck. Upstairs there are 2 small wings connected by a long “catwalk” over looking the great room. One side has 1 king bedroom, bathroom and bunk room (sleeps 4) and the other side has 1 king bedroom, bathroom and room with a crib. Perfect for extended families giving them space while keeping everyone together. The main floor has a powder room and den, equipped with pull out couch, TV, VCR, wifi and apple TV. For those wanting to sleep right on the lake, there are also two additional free standing cottages on the lake’s edge with queen beds in each and access to a natural, compostable toilet.
The house is situated on over 300 feet of waterfront, ensuring privacy, with a large dock to hangout, swim, paddle board, and boat. There is a pebbly beach with water access, perfect for young kids. There are 3 outdoor dining areas (including outdoor BBQ) and additional areas to relax, all with expansive views of the lake. The house faces directly east and gets spectacular morning sunrises, then cools in the afternoon while the dock remains in the sun until late day - perfect for a sunset cocktail and swim! We have a large vegetable garden and anything that is ready is available for picking. The house is located in the Okanagan Valley, Canada's wine country, with world class wineries close by - rated top 10 world class wineries/restaurants. As well, the Okanagan is the heart of agriculture, so the fruit and vegetables are fresh and super delicious. We love going to the farmers markets throughout the week. There are many golf courses in the Okanagan, as well as hiking trails that can be accessed from the house. If you enjoy outdoor theater, Armstrong is a short drive away and has fabulous summer theater that rivals big cities. The Okanagan is hot and dry in the summers, while the lake is clear and cool - a perfect pairing for a wonderful, magical summer vacation.
