Last week I listed 2 properties which have something special in common - outstanding outdoor living space!   It's the perfect time of year for listings like these....the flowers are in bloom, the patio furniture is set up, the gardens are ready to flourish & the Okanagan sun is shining and showing the best of these lovely outdoor spaces. 

 

This is 3555 Gates Road in West Kelowna that features dramatic and absolutely stunning panoramic lake and valley views. It's not just the views that are impressive at this property - it's the location and the privacy.  This really is a bird's eye view of some gorgeous Okanagan scenery!  There is a huge sundeck with a hot tub plus a covered patio surrounded by immaculate landscaping, truly an oasis!

 

 

 

 

 

The other listing is at 4996 Bradley Drive in Peachland and apart from featuring a true artist's studio, it boasts pathways, tranquil sitting areas, a large sun deck and covered patio, a variety of fruit and nut trees,  vegetable gardens and a beach volley ball court - how unique!! 

 

 

 

This is the time of year to make the most of our outdoor living spaces.  I hope you are enjoying yours and if you are in the market for a new home, I would love to show you either of these fantastic listings!  More information and photos are available at my website www.traceyboorman.com
