Luxury Home of the Month

2425 Arthur Court
Kelowna, BC
Presented by Jane Hoffman Group
Coldwell Banker 

Is it possible to live on your own island in Kelowna without relying on a boat in order to get anywhere? Can one have his or her own private island here and still be only 15 minutes away from downtown or the airport? Sounds impossible, until you allow yourself to be captivated by this magnificent property on Arthur Court in McKinley landing.

Although not a true island by definition, this home brings to mind the word “compound.” But while that designation evokes thoughts and feelings of coldness and inaccessibility, the 2.47-acre private property is delightfully cozy and warm.

There’s much more to the property than stunning lake views and unmatched exclusivity. 2425 Arthur Court was built for entertaining. Whether you’re serving dinner in the ultra-luxurious kitchen, mixing drinks at the custom bar, or watching a movie in the media room, not a single detail is left out. 

The media room is not the only area for movies and music; in fact, every room throughout the house is hooked up to the high-end Sonos music system. In addition, each bedroom (which are ALL master suites with views) has an entertainment system with its own PVR capabilities. Plus, each television is connected to the Digital Watchdog security system showing camera views around the home. The security system can also be controlled from anywhere in the world with your mobile device

You can spend years viewing thousands of homes around the world without coming across a property quite like this one. In this price range, for even the most discerning homebuyer’s checklist, it’ll be difficult to find a home with more checkmarks on it.
