Home Description: Casa del Sol is an adobe style, 3300 square foot, west facing villa overlooking Lake Okanagan. The view of the lake and the mountains beyond is absolutely breathtaking. Casa del Sol is designed to take full advantage of the setting. The main level is all glass on the west side. As a result, the kitchen/dining/living open concept main area, as well as the master bedroom, all have fabulous views. A spacious wrap around deck runs the whole west side of the house. The lower walkout level also features lake views from the entertainment room and each of the two bedrooms. There is no overnight moorage near Casa de Sol. The closest overnight moorage would be in Kelowna which is 25 minutes away. There is an excellent boat launch only 1 mile from the house and it also includes a safe harbor for loading and unloading. Pool is 16 feet by 32 feet and 3 /12 feet at shallow end and 7 1/2 end at deep end. Pool is available May 1 to September 30. Town of Winfield 5 minutes away. Sandy Beach on Wood Lake 12 minutes away.
Location: The home is located in an area of orchards, vineyards and forest just above the charming village of Okanagan Center. The Kelowna International Airport is only fifteen minutes away. Car rental available at this airport. Closer still is the town of Winfield, where you can find groceries, liquor stores, pharmacies, and other daily needs. The resort city of Kelowna, 25 minutes to the south, boasts fabulous restaurants, shops and entertainment. The Winfield Creek Wildlife Preserve is a nine-acre preserve which contains walking trails and lots of wildlife, including up to 50 species of birds. Lake Country Museum is located at Okanagan Center Park. You can walk to it from the house. Artifacts are housed in a former school house. Part of the school house has been turned into a quaint coffee shop with delicious pastries and an outdoor patio. We have a canoe across the road from the building chained to a tree for your use. Life jackets provided.
There is a path down to the lake and it takes 10 minutes to walk there. The beach is a pebble beach not sandy. Wood Lake with a gorgeous sandy beach is a 12 minute drive from the house.
Unfortunately, no there is no place nearby to moor a boat. However, there is a public boat launch very close to the house. From there it is only a 5 minute drive to bring the boat up to the house. There is tons of room beside the garage to park a boat.
Lake Country is a District Municipality with a population of approximately 12,000 in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada. The city of Kelowna lies to the south, while the city of Vernon lies to the north. As its name suggests, there are a number of lakes in the vicinity of Lake Country, and outside the municipal boundaries in the hills to the east. Okanagan Lake acts as the western boundary of the municipality, while the entirety of Wood Lake and the southern-most portion of Kalamalka Lake are encompassed by it.
Recreation: Opportunities for recreation abound. There are half a dozen world class golf resorts in the Kelowna area, of which two, Predator Ridge and Okanagan Golf Resort are within twenty minutes of Casa del Sol. Jack Nicklaus and Les Furber – two golf greats – have designed magnificent courses in the Okanagan. An extended golf season (March through October) makes the area one of North America’s favorite golf destinations. The golf courses incorporate rolling hills, orchards and vineyards.
There are three clean fresh water lakes in the region, Okanagan, Wood and Kalamalka. All feature sandy beaches, swimming, water skiing, boating, sailing, fishing and snorkeling. Casa del Sol comes complete with a canoe and paddles for your use at no extra charge. In the winter, the ski resorts of Big White and Silverstar are both only 45 minutes away.
The Okanagan is renowned for its numerous outstanding wineries. One of the best, Gray Monk, is just down the road from Casa del Sol.
