Kelowna Westside Real Estate For Sale - Westbank Developments and Okanagan Communities like Diamond View Estates, Mission Hill and Panorama Peaks

Western Living on the Westside West Shore: Okanagan’s Shore For Serenity

Put is all together in a palce whre all your year-round destination and recreation is just outside your door, and it’s hard not to look forward to a home where people have long chimed “the Westside is the best side.” A great editorial article by D. Murry for the BC Resorts Property magazine. On the quieter shore of Okanagan Lake, residents wake up to the sunny side of the Okanagan Valley amid colourful fruit orchards and award winning wineries – away from the crowds. The recreational paradise calle dteh Okanagan real estate community has always been a great place to enjoy all year round recreation that includes skiing and golfing in addition to the multitude of water sports for all ages and lifestyles. Summer’s abundant sunshine is enthusiastically welcomed at the many pristing Okanagan beaches and marinas offering access to extended boating and more along the 130 km long Okanagan Lake waterfront real estate properties. While these fine amenities in the major centres of Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon real estate have become renowned over the decades, although some people continue to prefer the serene beauty that remains less crowded on the opposite shore. From colourful Peachland with 5,000 residents to the quaint village like Fintry, the west shore sems a world away from the 110,000 plus within the nearby city of Kelowna real estate. “it is just a totally different time zone almost,”s ays Robert M., sales director for Westbank real estate Copper Sky and Platinum Project Marketing. Beachwear seems natural for the couple thousand residents sporadically dotted along the northwest corner of Okanagan Lake in WEstbank real estate in small communities like Traders Cove, Wilson Landing, and Fintry. In between, recreational development Okanagan real estate properties like LaCasa and Lake Okanagan resort property may soon be joined by new holiday homes at TimberRidge and Orchard Beach resorts. It’s also no surprise to see swimwear clad shoppers in Peachland’s downtown stores and restaurants – all located jus across the street from some of the town’s five km of pristine pebble beaches and marinas. “The views here is incredibly beautiful and constantly inspiring,” said Paul Hanson, sales rep for Island View Estates on Peachland’s Trepanier Beach. “It is a beautiful little enclave between the busy area of Kelowna and Penticton.”

More about the Westbank Real Estate Westside Neighbourhood

Even in Westbank real estate, whose 30,000 residents last year voted to become BC’s newest city, remains casual. A small town spirit is still alive, even while the stores grow exponentially in size and number to accommodate a growing population. “People take their Okanagan lake lifestyle community with all the amenities. We’ve got everything you need to do when you want to relax. You can rent a boat or enjoy lunch at one of the wineries.” For those who like their R&R with G&G (golf and grapes), the Westside real estate hills are home to two 19 hole courses and five wineries. These include the impressive Mission Hill Estate where more VQA wine is produced than any other single facility in BC. Wine visitors are captivated by even more than the hundreds of kegs of wine aging in their underground cave. Over $40 million of intriguing architecture within this hilltop sestates includes artistic arched walkways bordering a natural performance amphitheatre – all under the signature bell tower rising 40 metres high. Hainle Winery and Greata Ranch provide the next flavour selections around Peachland real estate – both with presale resort homes now growing up on their borders. More adventures awaits just 10 minutes above Westbank real estate, as the Okanagan’s most popular array of cross country ski trails wind just below Crystal Mountain family ski hill. Future plans call for an expansion of terrain and lift service, plus additional summer fun with a golf course.

Westbank Property is Growing Up

Now one year old, the new municipality of Westside is walking proudly forward, and celebrating its growth in so many new forms – a new bridge, many new stores, new leaders emerging and new neighbourhoods opening up. In May, the new five lane bridge opened by its namesake – Wliliam Bennett, former BC premier. Local residnts quickly rejoiced that traffic would flow much quicker to and from Kelowna than the original 50 year old three land floating bridge. This year, many people are finding fewer reasons to cross that new bridge, due to WEstbank real estate’s burgeoning shopping district that is quickly expanding local shopping choices – from family shops to a half dozen massive box stores – including a Walmart (said to be the largest in Canada) that is scheduled to pen in mid-September. The newest shopping collection now includes Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Staples, the Canadian Superstore and London Druges. No longer just a sleepy town for Kelowna, the Westside outpaced its giant neighbour with an 11.5 percent boom from 2001 to 2006. “The growth is just exploding on the Westside – not just housing, but business also,” said Leah T, manager of Westbank Chamber of Commerce and a resident for 25 years. Between lofty new neighbourhoods like Diamond View Estates and Panorama Peaks and desirable lakeshore projects, the Westside real estate is opening up markets to a wide range of new home buyers. The hills are alive with the sound of construction, as somany want to live where they can see the sparkling lake and neighbouring mountains that make a scnitilatting panorama. From affordable leashold homes on native land to new Westbank condominiums developments around the Westside town centre, the region is also offering starter homes with prices not seen across the lake in Kelowna real estate market. “It’s a beautiful location that still has the smaller feel with the right amenities,” said Chris I., manager of Sage Creek across the street from shopping and Two Eagles golf course.
