The home is a blend of luxe and rustic. This stunning 9,585-square-foot property will be available in a real estate auction online in September via Concierge Auctions. That’s in partnership with Mark Evernden of Century 21 Bamber Realty and Priscilla Sookarow of RE/MAX Priscilla. Offered for $11.5 million CAD, the property will be sold with no reserve to the highest bidder.
“We spent over four years building this home and custom-designed it with both nature and gathering in mind for the ultimate lakeside retreat,” says the seller.
Soaring open fir beams
Located at 8200 Kalavista Drive, this home is set on a double lakeside lot. Featured are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, including a master suite with a sitting area and an expansive dressing room. B.C. weather is a mixed bag. So on those bad-weather days, you can kick back and relax in the home theatre or work out in the home gym.
Other unique features include soaring open fir beams that frame the expansive living areas. There is a spacious gourmet kitchen, and an outdoor stone patio with abundant space for relaxing or hosting guests. The lakefront views are jaw-dropping. A hot tub, and a private dock with easy access to the lake for boating, fishing or other water sports. That adds to the lifestyle experience.
World-class golf courses nearby
The home is situated just outside the city of Vernon and nestled in one of the most desirable communities in the Okanagan Valley. The area offers year-round access to lake sports, hundreds of trails for hiking in the 3,218-hectare Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park and Okanagan Rail Trail, world-class cross-country skiing at Sovereign Lake Nordic Center, downhill skiing at Silverstar and Big White Resorts, heli-skiing in the nearby Monashees, and over 100 lakes within an hour’s drive.
The area is also home to world-class golf courses (Predator Ridge, The Rise, and Vernon Golf and Country Club), great beaches and trails, and culinary options from local farm-to-fork restaurants to five-star dining experiences, and more, with many of Canada’s most noted wineries located just minutes away.
Bidding Sept. 15-18
“This auction presents a rare opportunity to not only own a beautiful lakefront property on one of the most renowned lakes in the world. But also a property that is truly one-of-a-kind that would be hard, if not impossible, to replicate,” says Evernden.
“From adventure to relaxation, the shores around beautiful Kalamalka Lake have it all,” says Sookarow. “The area also offers the discerning family a true sense of being with schools, summer concerts, and sports leagues. It has the finest fruit orchards in the world.”
