Albertan Debra Maxwell spent years holidaying in the Okanagan. When Covid hit, her husband Cary started to work remotely ... that is when the couple began thinking about a permanent move to B.C.
“I came out to Peachland last August and I was really drawn to the quaint beach town feel,” says Debra Maxwell. “Best of all, it’s less expensive and offers a slower pace, plus the lake there is stunning.”
When they discovered Somerset Reach, they were sold.
“The view of the lake first sold us and then the upscale feel of the homes and the rooftop deck, that was it.”
The Maxwells purchased a stacked, four-storey three-bedroom walk-up. The couple upgraded to include an outdoor kitchen and reconfigured the master to have it on the top level leading to the rooftop.
“We lie in bed in the morning with our coffee, and look at the lake,” she says. “We couldn’t be happier. Our new home is gorgeous and the finishes are very high quality.”
Those sentiments are echoed over and over again by homeowners who have already bought in Phases One and Two – which both sold out quickly.
“The way we designed the site means that everyone gets a good view and nobody has to look at anybody else,” says Norris Boyd, founder of BoydWilson LLC. “The topography of the site means that from every rooftop, you’ll always have ever-enduring views of the lake.”
Conceived by New Town Architecture, the eye-catching contemporary architecture houses 56 four-level luxury townhomes, ranging from two- and three-bedroom homes with flex space, showcased by 35 walk-out and 21 walk-up designs.
Phase four offers 13 townhomes, all of which come with their own elevator and private side-by-side double-car garage. The walk-out homes are 2,700+ finished interior square feet featuring four-bedroom and four bathrooms; while the 2,000+ finished interior square foot walk-ups are two bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Somerset Reach homes’ open-concept kitchens are highlighted with waterfall islands/peninsulas with bar stool seating, Kitchen Aide stainless steel appliance package, including a gas stove with electric oven and French door refrigerator, timeless Shaker style cabinetry, as well as quartz countertops.
Each home presents wide plank textured engineered hardwood in living areas, expansive windows, sophisticated bathrooms with floating vanities and master ensuites with elegant porcelain tiles covering the floor and walls of the semi-frameless glass enclosure shower, and heated floors.
Somerset Reach is an easy 10-minute walk away from Peachland’s 11KM waterfront boardwalk, beaches and the quaint downtown core with its great waterfront restaurants, shops, marina, farmer’s market and services.
