About University District Real Estate

University District real estate covers most of the property types available throughout Kelowna. Homes in this picturesque region begin around the mid-$200,000s. In this range which stretches into the mid-$300,000s, you can find a beautiful but limited selection of bright, inviting condo units. These attached homes are in turnkey condition and were often built in the 2000s, making them relatively up-to-date. Many boast gorgeous mountain views and wonderful amenities such as community swimming pools, hot tubs, business centers, patios, parking, and gyms. Low maintenance and well-appointed, these lovely units offer wonderful opportunities such as the ability to walk out onto a golf course or enjoy a glass of Okanagan wine from a balcony with an enviable view. You can find many such condos along the exclusive Country Club Drive of Pinnacle Pointe Resort in University District, as well as in the surrounding area. Some can also be found on the edges of the Okanagan Golf Club.

The University District is also a fantastic place to find stunning single-family homes. These typically don't price for less than $600,000s but can reach well over $1,000,000. Detached homes in this community are also on the newer side, with many having been completed in the late 1990s and the early 2000s. Extensive square footage, elegant stucco and stone exteriors, and upscale traditional interiors are common features in this price range. These homes come with big gourmet kitchens, wet bars, and winding staircases. They showcase stone fireplaces, soaker tubs, entertainment rooms, and wood or tiled floors. Many enjoy expansive vistas from oversized decks as well as spacious backyards to run around in. It's also not uncommon to find a University District home with close to an acre or more of private land.
