Property description

Our fabulous location can't be beat! Sit on the best beach in Kelowna and easily stroll to downtown. And now that the home has been newly renovated there isn't a finer home to spend your vacation in.

Enjoy our large, private sand beach. You and your kids will love this! Our level lot is safe for kids and seniors. It's rock-free and has shallow water which warms up nicely in our bay.

Calling all nature lovers! We are right next to a wildlife sanctuary, so you can sit on the deck and watch the ospreys, ducks, otters and even, sometimes, deer meander by. This also begins the lovely waterfront boardwalk to downtown. Walk, roller blade or bike to free outdoor concerts, shops and restaurants. After dinner you may want to stroll to MooLicks for an ice cream.

It cannot be stressed enough how special this location is and the lot is. We are the first house on the first private beach just after downtown. On one side, we have neighbours, on the other, we have green space, and in front we have the private beach and lake.

Be sure to visit the 360 Video Virtual Tour below, just above 'Map & Owner's Profile'.

Relax in our tastefully decorated vacation home with expansive windows to take in the view, or BBQ and play on our spacious deck and lawn. Our modern kitchen has all the conveniences you need to cook, entertain or revel. The dining table seats eight and the breakfast bar seats four. Outdoor dining is our specialty. Eat in shade or sunlight as you watch the yacht races, then the sunset.

All four bedrooms have queen beds and one has an extra slide out single if you need it.

The sundeck is off the dining room (seats up to 8), living room and master bedroom. You may want to end the day at the water's edge watching the sun go down, then later roast marshmallows at the beach fire pit.

KELOWNA:

Cradled within a glorious range of mountains; a sanctuary blessed with pristine lakes, pine forests, abundant gardens, orchards and vineyards, sandy beaches, and superb amenities.

As the largest city located on stunning Okanagan Lake, Kelowna is a recreational lakeside paradise with miles of beautiful parkland and several sandy beaches that provide wonderful opportunities for swimming, boating, waterskiing, windsurfing and fishing. Even Kelowna's mainstreet ends at a beach!

Soak it all in on one of many outdoor patios. Stroll along the lakefront boardwalk and explore the local treasures being sold by the artisans or kick off your shoes and enjoy a free concert in the park.

Kelowna is emerging as Canada's newest golf destination, offering a whopping 101,382 yards of golf heaven. From easy-going to ego-shattering there are 18 golf courses to choose from.

If you're a wine enthusiast, touring Kelowna is a must. There are more than 29 unique wineries offering tours and tastings for all palates.

Or take in the arts and culture, the heritage, the winter activities, the list goes on... and on... and on.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I'm an optometrist, who lives and works in the Lower Mainland of BC. My partner, daughter and I enjoy exploring places, especially Mexico and Europe.

Why the Owner Chose Central City, Kelowna, BC, Canada:
After moving from Waterloo, Ontario, to BC, in 1985, our family fell in love with Kelowna. And who wouldn't? A beautiful clean lake, wine country, awesome hiking/biking, great ski resorts and a vibrant cultural district lured us. In 1997, when we came to buy, our realtor let us in on a secret. The beach he lived on was the best in the area...sure, we said...But he was right. After visiting numerous, rocky, pebbly, marshy waterfront areas, we fell in love with Manhattan Point beach. When the first house on the beach, right next to the green space came available, our dreams were answered. Since then we have been enjoying The Beach House ourselves, a little bit, and sharing it with select visitors from around the world a lot! The indoor renovation of 2016 opened up the great room, expanded the view of the wildlife sanctuary, and gave us a gorgeous chef's kitchen. With the addition of new beds the house is ready for the most discriminating guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When I'm lucky enough to be staying at the beach house, I love to have breakfast on the deck while watching the wildlife in the green space next door. Then a power walk along the boardwalk takes me to my favourite tea bar where I people watch for a short time. The day may include boating, wine tasting, and definitely swimming. After pursuing our various individual activities for the day, we all come together for dinner. We may eat in the sun or put the table under the shade tree. My favourite night is Wednesday because that is Regatta night and we watch the spinnakers fly as we dine. I prefer to be at the water's edge when the sun goes down. If I stay there until it darkens a bit I can make out the beaver swim by on his way to the creek.
