5 Great Reasons To Make McKinley Beach Your Next Home
Kelowna’s newest and only lakefront community has a lot to offer.
Here are five reasons why McKinley Beach should be your next home.
Environmentally Conscious Construction
The McKinley Beach property has been owned and maintained by the same family for 4 generations. It consists of an impressive 872 acres of development land, running from the lakefront up through a natural indigenous landscape.
Construction is undertaken with the natural environment in mind. Restorative landscaping is used to return disturbed areas back to their natural state after home building is complete. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the natural setting of the surrounding area to the fullest thanks to a construction process that carefully considers the existing environment.
Boating, Hiking and More
The Okanagan Valley offers a vast array of amenities for all to enjoy and to suit everyone’s lifestyle. With this in mind, McKinley Beach plays host to a variety of activities that encompass the best of the Okanagan.
Water-lovers can take a stand up paddleboard out along the shore, or dock a boat and other water toys at the on-site 92-slip private marina.
Mountain adventurers can hike or bike the 20 kilometres of trails throughout the community or grab a guide and climb the granite cliffs that have been set up with climbers in mind.
Outdoor chefs can take advantage of beachfront cooking areas that provide the perfect setting for evening picnics under the stars.
A Focus on Community
Future plans for McKinley Beach include a village, a winery and wellness district. As the development grows and more and more residents claim their lots and build their new homes, it’s easy to see how the site plan has been laid out to create a sense of community.
From the very start, McKinley Beach has been building a community sensibility, and has enjoyed supporting and taking part in the City of Kelowna community as a whole.
Located an easy 15 minute drive from Kelowna’s downtown core, McKinley Beach is far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle but close enough to take advantage of the vibrant cultural district, nightlife, restaurants and boutique shopping experience.
The Kelowna International Airport is located only 10 minutes away along with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan Campus.
The growing Kelowna tech sector is proving appealing to many people with large employers taking up residence here including Disney Interactive and Bardel Entertainment.
Kelowna’s favourable housing market makes this the ideal time to make the move to the Okanagan Valley.
Whatever your reasons for moving, McKinley Beach represents the very best the Okanagan has to offer in one beautiful location.
