IN VIDEO: This Lake Country home could be the most expensive in the B.C. Interior
If they get their listing price, a Lake Country property might be the most expensive home in B.C. outside of Vancouver.
Dubbed the Waterside Farm, it was assessed at $5.2 million as of July 1, 2020 but the asking price is more than 10 times that amount: $55,000,000.
“’The Waterside Farm,’ a luxurious lakeside retreat nestled on Lake Okanagan in the peaceful, quaint rural city of Lake Country, B.C.,” is the description on Jane Hoffman Realty. “This exquisite estate is positioned on 8.55 acres of waterfront offering approximately 850 ft. of shoreline. Luxury at its finest, offering unmatched artistic brilliance, state of the art technology and outstanding attention to details, expertly crafted in 2017 by award-winning Legacy Homeworks.”
No one at the realty company would talk about the home and, in a text message, said the owners are “very private people.”
It also includes a YouTube video of the property.
B.C. Assessment, on its website, says the house was built in 2013, has three storeys with five bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It valued the home at $5.2 million and the land at $24,367.
The realtor’s web page says it has five acres of peach orchard.
The main residence is 20,306 square feet with a 4,163 square foot guest wing and an 1,820 square foot caretaker's residence.
It has a newly installed wharf system with boat lifts and the “center of the wharf could handle an oversized boat if desired.”
It has geothermal heating and cooling, 35 zones of floor heat and an on-site water filtration plant.
It’s located at 12391 Pixton Road in Lake Country, about one kilometre from the home with the highest appraised value in the Interior of B.C. That property, at 12990 Pixton Rd, Pixton Road, was assessed at $10.7 million.
