Down Westside Road on Okanagan Lake the Fintry district is outside the city limits of Kelowna.
DESCRIPTION & LOCATION
This rural community has several small enclaves on and above the lake. These communities include Killiney Beach, Valley of the Sun, La Casa Resort, Timber Ridge, Okanagan Lake Resort, Short Creek Valley and a number of other neighbourhoods. This area is popular for vacation home owners as access to the lake is easy and convenient. Cottages and single family homes make up the majority of properties here. Resorts offer fractional ownership opportunities for those interested. As lakefront is a limited resource more luxury and high end homes have been built in this area in recent years.
With a commute of 30 to 40 minutes to downtown Kelowna and 20 to 30 minutes to Vernon it is an ideal location for many residents who don’t mind the driver or simply want more peace and quiet. Home Prices for fractional ownership in the resorts start around $150,000 with custom homes on the water well over $1,000,000 dollars. Single family homes off of the lake are in the $300 to $500 range.
