Morgan: Black Mountain neighbourhood expanding

The Black Mountain neighbourhood is made up of multiple developments both new and old, located on the eastern hills of Kelowna.

With a wide range of housing costs, Black Mountain is home to many families of different ages.

The age range in homes dates back to the 1970s up to the current date.  Still thriving, you will continually see new properties being built and vacant lots awaiting their future home.

Currently, there are a number of new homes under construction.

One builder in particular not only is focused on growing Black Mountain, but believes in the community so confidently that he continues to build a strong client base with this prospering community, garnering the reputation as Black Mountain’s ‘go to’ builder.

Cherrylane Homes Ltd., a long-time builder in the Okanagan, currently has a new spec rancher under construction at Samurai Court. This new house is an example of what is available for buyers in Black Mountain, the Samurai Court house being a new build offering superior features throughout, stunning valley views and a two-bedroom in-law suite, all starting at $499,900.

This affordable community has homes ranging in price from $300,000 up to $900,000.

Black Mountain has the luxury of feeling away from the town centre in a rural setting close to nature, while being just a few minutes drive from the centre of Kelowna and only 30 minutes to the Big White Ski Resort.

This community boasts all the attributes of a familiar real estate adage—location, location, location.

You can find Black Mountain in the southeastern limits of the city. It borders on both rural acreages and urban residences. Highway 33 runs east to west and divides the Black Mountain community in half.

Black Mountain also offers a prestigious golf course featuring a full par-71 championship golf course.

Black Mountain Elementary has about 352 students registered at this school from kindergarten to Grade 6.

The provincial highway expansion project was completed in the fall of 2011 and includes two pedestrian operated light crosswalks, a sidewalk on the school side of the highway and a lighted all weather surface bike path on the adjacent side of the highway.
