Located in Lake Country, The Villas at Lakestone by Carrington Homes offer a carefree Okanagan lifestyle in an area of stunning natural beauty that is close to shopping and restaurants.
The 28-villa development is located within the greater Lakestone community, where residents can enjoy a variety of amenities while living in a small community where neighbours have a chance to get to know each other.
The walk-out and walk-up bungalows will appeal to professionals, retirees or people downsizing after their children have left home, as they offer the perks of a two-storey home with fewer stairs.
Gorgeous Inside and Out
The contemporary-style homes are built to maximize their sweeping views of the serene Okanagan Lake. They offer high-end finishes such as quartz countertops and Samsung stainless steel appliances. There is hardwood flooring throughout the home for superb durability and easy care.
There’s no need to worry about dings and scratches if dirt gets tracked inside or when grandchildren and pets visit.
With accordion-style doors on the deck or back patio, homeowners can invite the beautiful Okanagan outdoors right into their main living area.
The attractive landscaping includes low-maintenance native plants, so residents can spend less time on yard work and more time relaxing and entertaining.
Relax at the Clubhouse
The Villas at Lakestone are within walking distance of a private clubhouse where residents can work out in the fitness centre, cool off in the swimming pool or relax in the hot tub.
The community has a homeowners’ association, so residents can lock their doors to take a summer getaway or go south in the winter without worrying about the outside maintenance of their home.
Residents can take advantage of the magnificent outdoors in the greater Lakestone community with its extensive hiking trails, panoramic views, boat dock and access to the water. Nestled in the Okanagan Valley’s Lake Country between Kelowna and Vernon, the Villas at Lakestone are a five-minute drive away from plenty of restaurants and shopping, and 15 minutes away from Kelowna International Airport.
Wine and Golf
With a population of approximately 15,000, Lake Country is close to wineries, championship golf courses and skiing.
Carrington Homes built and operates Kelowna’s Tower Ranch Golf Course, and has developed land at SilverStar Mountain Resort and Lone Pine Estates. Carrington Homes’ latest development is Essence Condos, a 21-unit luxury boutique condo building in Kelowna.
While fairly new to the Kelowna area, Carrington Homes is part of the Carrington Group of Companies, which has been around for 45 years.
