5 Neighbourhoods to Purchase Property in Southern Okanagan

South Okanagan - Dan Jones

Ask the Penticton locals if they love where they live and typically, the answer will be yes… and for good reason. With the gorgeous scenery, excellent climate, and plenty of fun things to do year-round, it’s no wonder people want to invest in the Okanagan Valley. Plus, there’s plenty of area homes for sale, not just in the city, but in the surrounding communities as well. However, trying to choose a place that meets your entire family’s needs can feel overwhelming, which is why I want to help you narrow it down. If you’re looking for a new place to live, consider these family-friendly neighbourhoods in the Southern Okanagan.

Valleyview 

Located on the Eastern hillsides of Penticton, there’s lots to love about the family-oriented community of Valleyview. With gorgeous lake and city view properties, residents won’t tire of the constant scenery they’re surrounded with when living in their new home. Locals to Valleyview will also feel great knowing their new home is likely an energy-efficient build, a major benefit to living in this growing neighbourhood. Have kids? You have your choice of area schools: Skaha Lake Middle School, Princess Margaret Secondary School and Wiltse Elementary School.  

Naramata Rural 

From panoramic views of the lake, mountains and farms to luxurious properties with hot tubs, pools and waterfalls, the community of Naramata is a breath-taking place for investing in realty. Residents are constantly surrounded by award-winning wineries, delightful orchards, quiet streets, and a whole lot of history. Whether you thrive off of a quiet country lifestyle or you love to explore and adventure, buying your new home along the Naramata Bench is a great way to live a rewarding life! 

Kaleden

Golf, nature and beach lovers unite! Kaleden is an excellent location to consider when looking for a home. This historic town provides locals with easy access to nearby beaches on Skaha Lake, great schools, amazing vineyards and orchards, and of course, well-built houses surrounded by picturesque scenery, just 20 minutes from Penticton and less than 10 minutes from Okanagan Falls. 

Penticton Main North

Sometimes, being closer to the downtown action is exactly what we need to feel fulfilled! If you’re someone who loves trying new restaurants and coffee shops while being close to convenient amenities like banks, clinics, shopping and more, consider searching the MLS listings in Penticton Main North. You’ll be near (or in) the downtown core, close to schools like Penticton Secondary, Queens Park Elementary and KVR Middle School, and of course, you’ll be kept close to the action of the city!   

Penticton Main South

If being near amenities is important to you, but you’re still looking for a quieter lifestyle, Main South could be the best place for you to find a house for sale. With such gorgeous scenery, nice houses, and close proximity to shopping, restaurants, schools and more, families are flocking to this rapidly growing area. Investing in a home in Main South provides residents convenient access to basic amenities as well natural attractions like parks, Skaha Lake, and more. Main South truly is family living at its finest.
