Calling all oenophiles: situated within sipping distance of the wineries of Cedar Creek Estate and Summer Hill, this architecturally designed home certainly has views worth raising a glass to.
It boasts more than 500 feet of private waterfront (complete with a licensed dock and boat moorage) and cavernous rooms that frame the lakeside vistas from its position on the shores of Okanagan Lake in British Columbia’s four-seasons playground.
It’s hard not to make a grand entrance as you enter through the porte cochere and into a barrel-vaulted great room with soaring ceilings and overheight windows set off by Italian porcelain tile floors.
As owner Edgar Fenwick extols, “This home blends with the shoreline and allows you to feel the natural beauty of the ever-changing lake from all rooms in the house.”
The state-of-the-art kitchen will make entertaining a pleasure, while a fully-equipped workout room will keep the focus away from exercise thanks to floor-to-ceiling views of pine and aspen trees—not to mention the bluff and the lake.
A custom-built sound system and Lutron lighting can set the mood, while radiant heating keeps the inside warm. The master bedroom ticks the romance box with an ensuite bathroom that offers a two-person jetted tub and a glass-wall view of the lake.
An air filtration and exchange system alongside geothermal heating and water purification keeps the indoor environment as clean as the surroundings.
Mature indigenous trees and landscaping ensure privacy, and with more than three acres of park-like property, there are numerous vantage points among the natural pine and rock from which to enjoy the tantalizing waterscapes while sampling the latest vintages.
You don’t even have to share the house with visiting family or friends: it comes with a 2,600-sq.-ft. second home, 300 feet away, with three bedrooms and bathrooms and, of course, lakeside views.
