Morgan: Wilden project has embraced natural setting

New regulation are now utilized in all hillside developments in Kelowna.

Nature Inspired Living” is the catch phrase the Wilden housing development in Glenmore has used to promote the project.

Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Kelowna, Wilden is today a family community, 2,000 acres of Okanagan beauty.

Only minutes from all amenities, parks and schools, Wilden is a place you will want to raise your growing family.

This percolating family development is offering homes at various different price ranges, such as affordable large detached and semi-detached townhomes that are pet-friendly and offer exquisite views. There are three different townhome designs to choose from.

Wilden is also offering executive custom single family residences or lots that allow you to choose from  four builders to help you build your dream home the way you envisioned your family living.

Wilden was one of the first communities in British Columbia to incorporate an ecologically sensitive geothermal heating and cooling system. That allows for 50 per cent savings on average for heating and cooling. It is said that installing a Geo system is equivalent to planting four to five acres of trees.

“Fifteen years ago we recognized the challenges of developing in rugged and environmentally sensitive hillside areas such as Wilden,” said Russ Foster, vice-president of Blenk Development Corp. and the Wilden project manager. “Since then we’ve worked hand in hand with the City of Kelowna in crafting new building and site servicing regulations that address these unique challenges,” he said.

“These new regulation are now utilized in all hillside developments in the city,”

Would you consider living in such a tranquil community, having nature just steps away right out your front door and yet only be 10 minutes from downtown?

With the Wilden development, you get the best of both worlds.

Check out the show home and see for yourself what this community has to offer.

The show home is opened daily from 1 to 5 p.m. except on  Fridays.
