What It Feels Like To Come Home to the Lake

Have you ever dreamt of coming home to a place where the summers are long, the majestic lake view is as long as you can stretch your neck from side-to-side, and the atmosphere is calm and relaxing? If that is your heart’s desire, it is time to take a closer look at the benefits of living by the lake and why Lakestone is one of the Okanagan’s fastest growing lakeside communities. What better opportunity to get the feel of lakeside living than to actually walk through Lakestone’s beautiful show homes. Located within the Benchlands neighbourhood, these show homes offer a glimpse into some of the finest lake view homes and the possibilities that exist at Lakestone!

At the entrance of the Benchlands community is Destination Custom Homes’ 3300 sq ft masterpiece. This multiple Tommie Gold winner showcases their exemplary craftsmanship and familiarity with today’s building trends in this show home located at 9686 Benchland Drive. Destination Homes has been offering clients guidance and customer service in the custom home building industry since 1987.

Next door at 9696 Benchland Drive is a sophisticated, modern design featuring soaring ceilings and an open concept plan. Built by the 2018 Gold Tommie Award Winner of the Year, Gibson Contracting’s mission is to represent the most refined qualities that give clients the best in luxury living.

Third in line on our Show Home Parade, you can view the most recently completed show home, built by Richmond Custom Homes.  You will observe several unique features as you tour this home, including the sunken living room, the hidden wine closet and the outdoor casita.  Located at 9708 Benchland Drive, this home is a fantastic blend of craftsmanship and creativity.

Finally, at the end of our show home parade, you will find a Candel Custom Home. This is a modern farmhouse with incredible views all the way to the bridge in Kelowna. The feeling is simple, fresh, timeless and peaceful.  The outdoor areas are second to none and well worth seeing. Come and see the home at 9714 Benchland Dr., you’ll be happy that you did!
