We Calgarians are justifiably proud of our fine city; it’s a great place to build a career and raise a family. But one could argue that our climate isn’t – ahem – perfect. You might even admit to having muttered under your breath about one or more of these pesky issues: healthy mosquito populations, slim pickings for lakes where you can enjoy swimming and watersports, volatile summer weather (8ºC today, in mid-July!), and ultra-cold, skin-cracking winters. Sound familiar? These are a few of the issues that push Calgary dwellers to look further afield for vacation properties or even to relocate, be it for a family lifestyle change or at retirement.
BC’s beautiful Okanagan Valley, with its milder climate and stunning natural landscapes (including those beloved lakes), has long drawn Albertans looking for a change of scenery. Kelowna, in the heart of the region, is a popular vacation and retirement destination. And as if all that wasn’t appealing enough… now there’s Wilden.
The largest master-planned community between Vancouver and Calgary, Wilden is situated 10 minutes from downtown Kelowna in an arresting hillside setting that offers unbelievable views of Okanagan Lake. Conceived as a nature-friendly development, the community design focuses on maximizing natural areas, and fitting its hardscapes into the natural topography of the area. Check out this video to find out more about the world class design thinking behind Wilden, and the community’s ongoing development:
New for summer 2015 – Wilden has just unveiled its latest neighbourhood! Rocky Point, boasting some of Wilden’s finest lakeview lots, is now available to the public. This exciting new neighbourhood features stunning lake views, Kelowna’s nearest-to-downtown lake view lots, and a wide variety of lot styles (from lots suited to walkout daylight basements, to level lots that are great for pools, and lots wide enough for a 70 foot wide home).
And this is just one of the neighbourhoods currently on offer in Wilden. With customizable pre-priced homes and lot/home packages, you’ll find something to suit your budget and your lifestyle.
If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of spending time in Kelowna, learn more about this vibrant city. Can’t you just picture your family loving life in Kelowna? Then start looking for a lot or a townhome in Wilden, to call your own! And when you move in… please, pretty please, put my invitation in the mail.
