Your own wondrous view

People can tell you about how gut-wrenchingly beautiful the view from Kirschner Mountain is; you can pour over pictures of if; or even look up at the mountain and try to imagine--but until you’ve stood at the top of Loseth Road, with the entire city twinkling below you, you really have no idea.

For a long time, a single family had the right to those views, but the last few years have seen new homes pop up atop Kirschner, letting a lucky few snag a piece of it for themselves.

Now, a handful of new lots have gone on sale, giving a brief window of opportunity to anyone who wants to be part of the community.

Allen Kirschner, the man in charge of development on the mountain, will talk for as long as you let him about how breathtaking it is to gaze out over Kelowna from a Kirschner Mountain patio.

But he’ll also tell you how, despite the quiet beauty that surrounds the community, it’s remarkably close to the conveniences of city life.

Hop in your car and you can be at the Orchard Park Shopping Centre in mere minutes. In just over 15 minutes you can make it all the way to the downtown.

Kelowna International Airport is an easy 10 minutes away, and some of the best schools in the city sit a breezy five-minute drive from Kirschner Mountain homes.

Allen also points out that very few people can make it to the slopes of Big White faster than those who live at Kirschner Mountain.

“This mountain might give you a slice of quiet, country living, but it’s still very much a part of the city,” Allen says.

“Kirschner is a microcosm of what is best about Okanagan living. Expansive views, clean water and the quiet of the countryside, with the convenience of being right in Kelowna,” he adds.

Allen is also proud of the family spirit imbued in Kirschner.

His family, the one that gave the mountain its name, has lived there for generations. That means it’s not a faceless corporation building the community there, but a family that’s invested in making sure it remains a special place.

The fourth phase of that community will soon begin to take shape, and 36 lots are available for sale right now.

Allen points out that the luxury lots are larger than most in Kelowna, and when you buy one, Kirschner gives you the freedom to choose your own builder to create your home.
