Property description

Located in a neighbourhood that local Okanagan people hardly know exists, this 1970's cottage is a great get-a-way for people that want to experience Okanagan of days gone buy. Drive through vineyards, orchards and wineries to arrive at this lovingly cared for home. It was built by the original owners for their retirement years and has been passed down to family. The classic post and beam home has comfortable modern day conveniences without losing the integrity of the 1970's charm.
It is a grade level entry with bedroom, den, laundry/half bath and storage on entrance level.
Upstairs contains the living space with a spectacular brick fireplace built by a local craftsmen covering the north end wall of the living room. The living room and dining room are spacious and open with a unobstructed view of Okanagan Lake. The kitchen is totally functional yet modest and looks out onto the hills of Okanagan Centre.
The master bedroom is spacious with lots of closet space and an adjacent main bath has lots of counter top space and storage.
Enjoy coffee on the beach just steps from your door where most of the time you are the only one for as far as you can see.
If it is a latte you want you can walk 10 minutes to the only commercial enterprise in 'the Centre' to the Patio Café.
All ammenties and services are located within a 5 minute drive and the airport is 15 minutes from your door.
The water is beautifully clear, great for swimming and floating about. You can tie your boat to the buoy or the public boat launch is 6 doors north.
The wineries, Gray Monk, Ex Nihilo and Arrowhead are within a few kilometers and boast great views, food and wine.
We love it here and we hope you will create your own memories at Okanagan Centre.
Barb and Don.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Barb and Don live and work as realtors in Kelowna. Don was born and raised in the Okanagan. Barb is a transplant from Saskatchewan.

Why the Owner Chose Okanagan Centre:
The property was purchased by us from Don's family. We love it out here and wanted to be able to keep the home in the family for future generations to enjoy. We think there are few places like Okanagan Centre left in the Okanagan where the beaches are untouched, the water is clear and it is quiet.
