The clock is ticking for those who want to live in the first and only luxury condominium collection in the Lakestone neighbourhood, located just 15 minutes north of Kelowna.
Zara at Lakestone is more than 90% sold after its sales selection event at the end of August, but there are still some great home available for those who are looking to secure a piece of Okanagan paradise.
Zara is luxury living in one of the country’s most coveted regions, featuring 86 homes that include six, two-storey penthouses. It is located in the Lakestone neighbourhood, which was the recipient of the 2020 national award for Community Development of the Year by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association.
There is a waterside park featuring an attractive timber pavilion, picnic tables and loungers for lakeside relaxation, you can hit the tennis, pickleball or basketball courts, or you can set out on your standup paddleboard or kayak from the dock.
The neighbourhood is located on the east side of Okanagan Lake, right in the middle of the Scenic Sip Trail. The trail consists of eight—and soon to be nine—wineries that dot the rolling hills on the western edge of Lake Country. In other words, you will never be far from being able to enjoy that glass of wine while watching the sun set over the mountains.
There are also more than enough nearby activities to keep Zara residents loving their lives. There are more than 20 golf courses within 30 kilometres. The hiking and cycling trails are seemingly endless. There is a 27-kilometre paddle trail. There will be farmers’ markets and chef-led restaurants all around. Big White is less than an hour away in the winter.
The area in which Zara is located, between Highway 97 and Okanagan Lake, is one of the most unique spots in the valley. In addition to single-family neighbourhoods, there are smaller ranches, bigger homes, fruit growers, chicken farms, and horse and honey bee farms.
As for Zara itself, it is a steel and concrete building, which will reduce sound transfer and reinforce structural durability to enhance comfort, livability and lasting value.
There will also be several wellness-centric amenities, including an infinity pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna, spa lounge, fitness centre complete with change rooms, fire pit, interior amenity/event space, and retail space for a restaurant, shops and services.
Another major attraction will be the fifth-floor SkyBridge, which will be open to all residents and will provide sweeping views of the lake. The one-, two- and three-bed homes range from 600 to 2,000 square feet, with penthouses from 2,010 to 2,600 square feet.
If all of that is not enough to make Zara your next home, Lake Country is in an area that does not fall under the speculation tax, nor is there a vacancy tax. That makes Zara a perfect opportunity for investment, including short-term rentals.
Zara’s sales centre, which is located at 9678 Benchland Dr. in Lake Country, is open by appointment Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. You can register today by visiting ZaraLakestone.com or by calling 250-548-0404.
