Vineyard living for $399K

West Kelowna has earned a reputation of a charming holiday getaway. Whether sandy beaches, rolling vineyards or the alluring waters of Okanagan Lake, this picturesque destination in the Okanagan Valley is a favourite among outdoor enthusiasts, wine connoisseurs, nature-lovers and food fans alike. But it’s also an idyllic place to live, with quiet, safe neighbourhoods and quick and convenient access to downtown Kelowna.

Here, in the heart of wine country, is the burgeoning community of Lakeview Village. Exuding a welcoming village atmosphere, the storied neighbourhood is undergoing a revitalization with the development of The Residences at Lakeview Village – and buyers who understand the region’s enduring appeal have an opportunity to secure a home and investment in what promises to become the most sought-after and desirable location in the valley.

Spearheaded by KiND Development Group, The Residences at Lakeview Village is effortlessly raising the bar for upscale condos in the area. The development – which offers a broad unit mix ranging from cozy one-bedrooms to two-bedroom and den homes – is surrounded by family estates and protected agricultural land, ensuring the location’s enviable views of rolling hills, lush vineyards and Okanagan Lake will always be preserved. While phases 1 and 2 quickly sold out, savvy buyers can snap up homes in the next phase when it arrives to market this fall.

Directly adjacent to The Residences at Lakeview Village is an outdoor retail village offering everyday essentials – bakery, brewery, Nester’s Market grocer and a salon, among others. Nearby are wooded trails, a bike-friendly route leading to a regional park, and access to the Westside Wine Trail – a well-trodden path to some of the most well-established wineries in the Okanagan Valley, including Mount Boucherie Estate Winery, Grizzli Winery and Little Straw Vineyards, all walking distance from The Residences at Lakeview Village. Seeking the buzz and amenities of downtown Kelowna? Drive just 10 minutes where remarkable restaurants, boutique shops, parks and a sprawling beach await.

Prefer to stay in? The Residences at Lakeview Village is a homebody’s dream, thoughtfully designed with high-end details and exquisite finishings. Imported Italian kitchens and a light, airy aesthetic are equally suited to socializing and savouring alone time. Buyers can choose the colour scheme that best suits their personal aesthetic – Chardonnay, whose hues are light and soothing, or Pinot, which is sophisticated and luxe. Within the community, gathering spaces encourage impromptu get-togethers and casual conversation. Take an evening stroll in the central courtyard past the illuminated water feature or watch the sunset from the rooftop lounge. If you’re in the mood to workout, the fully equipped fitness centre has everything to get you up and moving.

This area of West Kelowna is a rising star, and Lakeview Village one of its crown jewels – a character-filled community at the beginning of a game-changing evolution. Buyers who want to put down roots, or scoop up a savvy investment, can sign up for further information about the next phase which will hit the market in fall.
