Eight Hundred House, Kaleden, British Columbia, Canada
Set into the Kaleden hillside, the low profile design of the home is quietly poised within its earthy landscape. With its muted tones and staggered elevations blending into the surrounding sagebrush and pines, the windows that flow along the curved lines of the home are its only real signal of disconformity.
Ponderosa pines, fir, larch and aspens give privacy to this gently sloping lakeside acreage. They are among the thoughtfully planned landscaping that creates the unique and unassuming character of this property. Seemingly elaborate, the gardens require very little maintenance and most of the plantings around the house are deciduous which offer valuable shade in the summertime.
The homes interiors are meant to entertain given the main floor layout of all the bedrooms and expansive, central great room. White walls throughout accent the beautifully arched, 2.5” thick White Pine doors, stamped concrete flooring and windows that run the length of the house, curving and turning towards each new exterior view looking out onto the lake. Each of the rooms has access to the partially-covered rooftop sundeck and wetbar from which the views of the stars are incredible. Twelve foot ceilings in the great room lead into an expansive kitchen which is the perfect space to sharpen and display your culinary creations. Custom 12’ foot hickory cabinets are one of the focal points of the kitchen – another highly sociable area of the home. A formal dining room comfortably seats eight guests, however there are plenty of options to dine outside with such Mediterranean inspired surroundings.
The six bedrooms of the home, each with their own ensuites open onto the central outdoor courtyard which is like an oasis with its striking blue water pool and exotic planted varieties including the brightly coloured and fragrant cytisus battandieri, weeping redbud, roses & flowering almond. A whimsical mix of roses, tulips, juniper, crepe myrtle in white, pink, purple and red varieties imported from New Orleans, Blue Ice Arizona Cypress, and Oregon grape are an everchanging canvas outside of the home. A garden path leads out to a large, deer-fenced garden full of fruit trees including paw paw, elephant heart plum, apricot, peaches, cherries, grapes and berries.
A covered triple garage uses one bay as a storage room and finished workshop wired with 220 amp service and there is easily surface parking for another ten vehicles adjacent in the driveway area. Efficiently built, the home uses geothermal energy and radiant in-floor heating throughout.
Downtown Penticton is a quick 15 minute drive away to amenities and the famed Naramata Bench wineries are an easy stop to entertain your out of town guests.
Situated on an East to West axis and bathed in the Okanagan sunshine the home has been carefully aligned with site specific Feng Shui principles in following with the high Feng Shui energy that Kaleden itself is known for. Orientation towards the East provides enormous views overlooking Skaha Lake and the city lights of Penticton.
