Kelowna, British Columbia has some of the most amazing homes I’ve seen in Canada. The Okanagan Valley’s real estate market exploded about eight years ago with many new luxurious constructions. Many people want to live in this region for its mild winters and steamy hot summers. Also, you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings, including Okanagan Lake, one of the warmest here in Canada. Living in this region doesn’t come cheap, but it surely is worth it to be in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Take for example this stunning new home. This house has incredible views of Okanagan Lake, a kitchen that makes me want to turn down mine and start all over again and the most fun playroom I’ve seen in a long time. This is the kind of house where I can see the whole family happy, including the children. It’s refreshing seeing a contemporary house that I can actually picture kids running around. This one has its own space for every and each person of the family. I can picture mine there… and hey, nobody touches the master ensuite. That tub and view are mine!
It would be nice to call it “home”.
Home with a View
This house feels totally open to the gorgeous views.
Le Petit Cafe
Come on in! Please, have a seat. Would like to have a cup of tea or coffee?
I’m in love with this kitchen. You guys know me. I usually prefer smaller spaces and I usually don’t go “gaga” over contemporary homes, but this house has it all! Take a look at the sleek lines of this beautiful kitchen.
I love how open it is to the outdoors.
The island and light fixtures are just beautiful and the brushed ash floors compliments the white cabinetry.
I love the backsplash in this kitchen.
It would be fun to have your meals overlooking the lake.
Okay… take a deep breath and look at that view!
The family room could use of more furnishings, but I strongly believe this house has been staged for sale. So, that explains the lack of certain pieces.
This is yet another example of “lack of furniture” room. But I can overlook that and see the gorgeous fireplace and light fixture. I’d love to decorate this house!
I need a rug and a seating area in this room, but honestly, all I can think about right now is being able to wake up everyday with that view.
Picture yourself taking a bath here. Peaceful!
To The Other Side
This ensuite is fabulous!
I really like the color on the wall and the pop of color this orange rug brings to the room.
This is phenomenal! Take a look at the slide that goes directly to….
Yes! It goes directly to the playroom in the basement. I’d never find my kids! Can you imagine when you try to give them a “time-out” and they start going up and down this thing? I could never win! 🙂
What do you think of this color for kids’ bathroom?
The grown-ups “playground”. No slide though.
Who doesn’t love a room like this, right? I really like the carpet used here. Great for a media room.
You come to workout here after eating all that candy in the media room. Workout with this kind of view? I’d have as many muscles like Madonna has! 🙂
It would be great to have a party in this place.
Are you coming?
Okanagan is well known for its wineries. I’d have a glass by the fire and watch the sunset.
The back of the house.
You would find me here during the summer nights.
Kelowna is truly a stunning city. We actually used to live there about three years ago. We enjoyed living there, but decided to move here to have a calmer lifestyle. But I won’t lie, I’d move back there any time if it was to move in this house! Who would say “no” to this kind of view?! Well, but for that I’d have to have $4,995,000. Anyhow, we all can dream, right? 🙂
What’s your favorite room of this house? I can’t wait to know what you think of this place.
Oh, one more thing. I keep getting so many sweet emails about Matthew and so many of you ask me how I’m keeping up with it all, including the blog. First of all, I do get tired at times, but I try to balance everything and not get too crazy if I can’t do it all in one day, which means, my laundry is done, but ironing is not! My house is clean, but not spotless (toys! I have a very strong “love-hate” relationship with them!), I still love to cook, but prefer the easy & fast take-outs. Life is truly too short to get stressed about everything and trust me, this is a big deal for me to say this. I used to be perfectionist when it comes to household chores. Nothing could be out of “its place”, but I just understood that you can’t be like that when you have three kids. You can, but then, you won’t breathe and I need my breathing, my peace-of-mind. As I said, life is too short and I’m trying to find ways to live it knowing where I’m stepping and enjoying every step I take. After all, what’s the point to get to the top and realize you’ve missed seeing everything from different heights?
Have a blessed day!
