Joe Rich Real Estate Info
Joe Rich is a large rural community where residents enjoy the wide open spaces and tranquility of British Columbia just a short distance east of Kelowna.
The area consists of mostly acreages and small farms with large houses and many working outbuildings for the resident’s various activities and ventures. The nearby city of Kelowna provides all the amenities and services, while the immediate surroundings provide the space, pastures, and woodland that the residents of Joe Rich want.
Many of the homes in Joe Rich are set well back from the roads along winding roads amid towering pines and other trees. The winding drives usually terminate in large front areas, with an abundance of space for trucks and other working vehicles, and overlooked by large decks and wrap-around front porches.
Large properties and spacious, unique country homes are the hallmarks of this beautiful, forested area. The cleared fields, excellent roads, and working buildings make these properties great for starting a hobby farm, keeping horses, or a range of other activities when beautiful outdoor spaces are needed.
Joe Rich Area & Community
Joe Rich is a large rural area east of Kelowna, occupying the land north of Highway 33, the Kelowna Rock Creek Highway as it leaves Kelowna and before it turns south towards Carmi and the border.
Most of the residential properties in this area are grouped closer to the highway, northeast of the Okanagan Adventure Park. The main roads off the highway that link into the Joe Rich area are Goudie Road, Huckleberry Road, and Sun Valley Road.
Highway 33 follows the Belgo Creek valley, and as the roads and area of Rich Creek move northward, the elevation increases up the valley sides.
Joe Rich Ammenities
The nearest amenity for residents of Joe Rich is the Okanagan Adventure Park, a recreation center between the highway and the river in the valley bottom, complete with obstacle courses and ziplines.
Other parks and outdoor recreation areas nearby include the Browne Lake Provincial Park & Ecological Reserve, the Myra Canyon Trail, and the James Lake Recreation Site to the north.
Highway 33 which runs past Joe Rich and provides its primary access point is the gateway route to Big White, a ski mountain and resort about 30 minutes east of Joe Rich. This winter sports facility is a major attraction for the area and one of the province's premier skiing destinations. With dozens of runs and a fantastic resort, it’s truly a world class attraction that residents of Joe Rich can enjoy.
Of course, the land and hills all around Joe Rich is rich with forests, trails, and logging roads to explore. However, for a less rustic experience, there’s always the town of Kelowna a few minutes away to the west.
