The Home Buyer’s Guide for Kirschner Mountain Real Estate
Part of the reason Kelowna is so attractive to homebuyers is the scenic outlooks of the Okanagan hills and mountains. On the south-eastern side of Kelowna rests the Kirschner Mountain subdivision — a serene suburb defined by the surrounding nature walks and outdoor adventures moments from resident’s doors.
For home buyers looking to enter the Kelowna market, either to settle in with their family or have a picturesque vacation spot ready for the Summer months, Kirschner Mountain brings a lot to the table.
Amenities nearby Kirschner Mountain
- 15-20 mins to Okanagan Lake
- 40 mins to Big White Ski Resort (much closer than the majority of Kelowna communities)
- Less than 10 min to shopping district (groceries, pharmacy, restaurants, services, etc.)
- Less than 10 min to schools (including secondary)
- Hiking and walking paths just around the corner
These are some of the top reasons to call Kirschner Mountain home. What it leaves out is the natural beauty that can only be experienced in person. Most homes have lookouts that span across Kelowna, making your backdoor patio an ideal escape at the end of the day.
We love the secluded nature of Kirschner Mountain. Homes here are afforded an ample amount of space, meaning less distraction from neighbours and more privacy for you and your family to enjoy.
Cost of Homes in the Area
Kirschner Mountain real estate is on the higher end of the average home price in Kelowna ($510,000 as of last year). This is to be expected, given the relative age and quality of homes in the area. There have been multiple PNE prize homes here in Kirschner Mountain. In terms of affordability, Kirschner Mountain homes offer exceptional value for speculators who want to make a sound investment.
Given the position of the mountain, it is unlikely to see any developments nearby that would impede lookouts of Kelowna, one of the major selling features of the area. Further, the City of Kelowna is contributing 1.2 million dollars to ensure the mountain is in good shape for homeowners in the area.
As more people are priced out of the Greater Vancouver Area, the Okanagan Valley is set to continue its climb upwards. Increasing developments of both commercial and residential space in the downtown core are ensuring there is ample space for new residents. As those new residents mature in the market, homes will remain a hot commodity — particularly those that retain their scenic status!
