Home to a thriving arts scene, more than 40 wineries, and plenty of vibrant activities and events year-round, the Okanagan is where breathtaking natural beauty meets cultural cachet. You’ll never lack for shows to attend, enriching exhibitions, or arts programming for your little ones. A luxury Okanagan home is your gateway to a well-rounded, sophisticated life.
Luxury real estate in the Okanagan’s exceptional neighbourhoods offers the perfect combination of spectacular vistas and access to the region’s art scene.
Whether your exclusive Kelowna property is in Dilworth or the Upper Mission, West Kelowna or Glenmore, you’re only ever a short walk or drive from the city’s bustling downtown Cultural District. The district, developed at the former heart of the Okanagan’s fruit-packing industry, spans six blocks and has become a hub of cherished venues. It boasts the storied Kelowna Community Theatre and Black Box Theatre — one of the B.C. Interior’s largest performing arts venues — as well as the Kelowna Actors Studio and Mary Irwin Theatre in the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Art lovers can take in thought-provoking exhibitions at one of Kelowna’s numerous galleries or explore the permanent collections at one of the city’s several museums.
Start a day out on the town with a stroll through the Kasugai Gardens for a taste of Japanese landscape design, followed by an afternoon of shopping in the Cultural District’s distinctive stores and a stop at one of the locally owned cafes or restaurants. Cap it off at home, in your stunning Kelowna property, with a glass of wine from an award-winning local vineyard.
For budding artists — adults and children alike — Kelowna’s Rotary Centre offers regular classes on everything from storytelling to painting and illustration to salsa dancing, and special spring break programming for kids. The city’s many arts and crafts stores allow you to foster your creative genius from the living room or back deck of your exclusive Okanagan property.
There are plenty of exciting experiences to be had outside the downtown core. Luxury Mission homes are a short drive from the trendy shops and galleries of South Pandosy. And further afield, sprawling Lake Country properties offer the best of both worlds, with easy access to both Kelowna and Vernon’s art scenes and the town’s own Creekside Theatre and Lake Country Art Gallery.
With vineyards and orchards located minutes from — and within — the city, opulent Kelowna homes provide the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the Okanagan’s world-renowned wine industry.
History enthusiasts can enjoy both wine and culture at the Okanagan Wine and Orchard Museum, where you can wander through exhibits of painted fruit crates, cherry pitting equipment, and live beehives, learning about the region’s twin historic industries.
You never have to live far from one of the region’s award-winning wineries. In West Kelowna, the regines’s wine mecca, luxury real estate brushes up against sprawling vineyards, including Quails’ Gate and the famous Mission Hill estate. Other neighbourhoods, including the Upper and Lower Mission and even downtown Kelowna, have vineyards or wineries just a stone’s throw away. Once you settle into a sprawling Okanagan property, celebrate your new home by exploring Kelowna’s famous wine trails.
The Okanagan promises the perfect pairing of outdoor splendour and arts and culture. Let us help you find a home you can enjoy it from.

Originally got Brody Mader's name when I contacted his firm in Kelowna after doing about 3 months of research with multiple sales organizations on the 'Net prior to putting our home in the Lower Mainland up for sale. He responded to my request for assistance but at no time pressured us to make a quick decision, even after our home sold much more quickly than anticipated and we were in a bit of a panic. He patiently led us through the home selection process, introducing us to completely new areas with preparation, guidance and thoughtful comment. That was about 6 months ago. We are now completely satisfied with our purchase and our new neighbourhood. As such, we would not hesitate to recommend Brody to anyone contemplating a move.

Your professionalism and assertiveness made our home purchase process so efficient and stress-free. What stands out even more is the personal commitment and friendly follow-ups after the move as well as real estate market advice years later.

Most importantly, our needs and interests were always put before making a sale.

I had the opportunity to work with Kaity when I was looking for a home to buy last year. I absolutely loved hanging out with Kaity and looking at places, she kept me well informed of all properties that came up that would meet my criteria. And was most helpful with information leading me to house insurance, law firms etc… Always on time and very accommodating. I would use the team at Okanagan Lifestyle again in a heartbeat.

Our agent Kaity has been absolutely amazing throughout this whole process of buying our home and selling our townhome. Kaity has always answered our calls and is very good at getting back to you immediately. She looked after all our needs and questions right away and made herself available at all times. Kaity even went the extra mile to make us a custom photo book of our first home so we could always remember where our family started, what a gift to treasure forever! Kaity deserves to be recognized by your company as she is a true gem and that is hard to come by these days! We can't say enough good things about her and have already recommended her to a few friends!
