Rural Chic – nestled on the tranquil west bank of Lake
Osoyoos, this home pairs the rural charm of South Okanogan wine country with
the luxuries and convenience of modern living. The house, architecturally
designed in 1973, was extensively updated in 2012 in keeping with contemporary
preferences for open-planned living and connection to the outdoors.
The house is situated on a professionally landscaped low
bank lot with 84 feet of lakeshore and a private dock with sitting area. A buoy
is also available for anchoring your boat. A southeastern exposure and
extensive patios encourage outdoor living six months of the year.
The kitchen features new stainless appliances, expansive caesar
stone counters and a nine foot long island designed for casual dining and entertaining.
The sunken living room, anchored by a vintage brick chimney
and hearth, is softened and updated with the introduction of modern furnishings
and upscale lighting.
The uber sleek dining room table expands to seat 10 people.
Design buffs will appreciate the chartreuse “potato chip” chairs designed by
Ray and Charles Eames complete with Eiffel Tower legs.
A large master bedroom with king-size bed on the main floor
has sliding doors opening onto a patio with a lake view. The ultramodern
en-suite bathroom also has direct access to the outdoors. The upstairs has
three bedrooms (2 king, 1 twin) with newly renovated 4 piece bathroom.
Also on the main floor there is a very large laundry/utility
room, and a media room. All principle rooms including the master bedroom
feature vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows allowing for panoramic
views of the Lake and East Bench vineyards.
