The price of a loft in Kelowna can get you an acre, lakefront mansion in Quebec

The average price of Kelowna homes sold in July was over $1m

A 1,665 square foot loft on Ellis Street in downtown Kelowna is listed for a $998,000 on Sotheby’s International Realty. For almost two thousand dollars more, you could buy a 1.3445 acre lakefront mansion in Saint-Donat, Quebec, listed on the same website.

The Quebec home, listed at $999,999, is about $20,000 short of the July 2019 average cost of a new home in Kelowna, which is $1,020,655, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

The 30-year-old Quebec home has three bedrooms, two baths on 58,568.35 square feet of land, described as ‘intimate’ and ‘private’ on the listing and overlooking ‘one of the most beautiful lakes in Quebec’, Lake Archambault.
