Rural Chic – nestled on the tranquil west bank of Lake Osoyoos, this home pairs the rural charm of South Okanogan wine country with the luxuries and convenience of modern living. The house, architecturally designed in 1973, was extensively updated in 2012 in keeping with contemporary preferences for open-planned living and connection to the outdoors.
The house is situated on a professionally landscaped low bank lot with 84 feet of lakeshore and a private dock with sitting area. A buoy is also available for anchoring your boat. A southeastern exposure and extensive patios encourage outdoor living six months of the year.
The kitchen features new stainless appliances, expansive caesar stone counters and a nine foot long island designed for casual dining and entertaining.
The sunken living room, anchored by a vintage brick chimney and hearth, is softened and updated with the introduction of modern furnishings and upscale lighting.
The uber sleek dining room table expands to seat 10 people. Design buffs will appreciate the chartreuse “potato chip” chairs designed by Ray and Charles Eames complete with Eiffel Tower legs.
A large master bedroom with king-size bed on the main floor has sliding doors opening onto a patio with a lake view. The ultramodern en-suite bathroom also has direct access to the outdoors. The upstairs has three bedrooms (2 king, 1 twin) with newly renovated 4 piece bathroom.
Also on the main floor there is a very large laundry/utility room, and a media room. All principle rooms including the master bedroom feature vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows allowing for panoramic views of the Lake and East Bench vineyards.
