Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are Paul and Kathy. Paul is a retired lawyer who works as a commercial mediator and negotiation strategist. Kathy is an executive coach and author, primarily working in healthcare with a focus on leadership development and communications. We purchased the property 25 years ago when it was a charming old farmhouse situated on a large private piece of waterfront which we rented one summer and fell in love with the area. Five years ago we decided to rebuild as our family expanded with new grandchildren. Now we have a wonderful space with room for our adult children, their spouses and children.
Why the Owner Chose Vernon, BC, Canada:
We love the climate of the Okanagan with warm dry summers and cold snowy winters. The lake is beautiful to swim in, feeling like velvet on one's skin. We fell in love with the property when we first rented it and felt very blessed when we were able to purchase it the following year. Our children were then teenagers, who each had a bunkie by the lake. They and their friends loved hanging out on the screened in porch or dock. Now they have young children who look forward to their visits.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the property which is somewhat secluded and private. The new home is constructed completely of wood and has a warmth and special energy that is difficulty to describe. Some have told us it is the most spectacular home they have ever been in. Although not overly large at 3200 sq ft, it has a voluminous quality that creates a spaciousness, particularly in the summer when we live on the large screened in porch. Facing directly east, we get spectacular sun rises and the sun is off the dock late afternoon, allowing the house to cool down making sleeping comfortable.
