Property Description

Welcome to 3920 Desert Drive, quietly perched atop prestigious Turtle Mountain in Vernon, British Columbia

Breathe in the fresh air and take in the spectacular Okanagan Lake, majestic mountains and city views with an ever changing colour palette through the seasonal changes of each year!

Desert Drive sits just off the beaten path, enjoying a peaceful serenity.

Extraordinary attention has been paid to every detail in finishing both inside and out, this 3300+sq/ft 3 bedroom plus 2.5 bathroom craftsman-style rancher with walk-out lower level.

Expansive East, South and Southwest VIEWS are enjoyed from both upper and lower levels and from the open concept interior living to the privacy screened and low-maintenance landscaped outdoor living spaces.

This is "one of those forever custom homes" where the owners went above and beyond the "must haves" and the highly desirable hardwood floors, stainless appliances, custom cabinetry, quartz counters, spa-like ensuite to ensuring fixtures and finishings were evident in every room. Careful consideration was given to each and every detail from adding electrical outlets, 3 way switches, changing cabinet heights or interior door styles to ensure if something made life easier, then it was added!

Level living on the 1456+sq/ft main floor includes laundry (with added sink), den, 2 piece powder, master retreat with 5 piece ensuite, open concept kitchen/dining/living and seamless flow to partially covered South facing upper deck.

The 8ft front door and generous front foyer welcomes you inside, where immediately the lake view beckons. A stylish barn door encloses the front den/office space, maximizing the size while providing privacy if needed.

The kitchen is simply amazing and its here that the detail shines brilliantly. Counter heights were changed from the standard 24" to a comfortable 30", additional cabinets were added to the island with undermounted granite sink. Professional grade stainless appliances were selected ensuring the Bosch dishwasher keeps things quiet and the fridge included the convenience of a waterline. A decorative hood fan, custom tiles and discrete mouldings create elegant, clean lines and finishing. And of course the quartz counters sparkle with undermount lighting providing ambience.

The Napoleon linear gas fireplace with built in bookshelves showcases the living room with an expansive wall of windows drawing in the sunlight and views. Dine in or seamlessly flow to the upper outdoor living space to bbq, dine or relax morning, noon and night.

Say good morning or good night to the relaxing lake view, most visible from the master retreat, with separate walk-in closet and spa-like 5 piece ensuite including a deep soaker tub, his and her vanities, extra large glassed shower and separate water closet.

The fully finished 1820+sq/ft lower level boasts loads of finished storage, 2 bedrooms, full 4 piece bath, custom bar area, open recreation/family living with sliding door access to the fully landscaped patio and yard plus an AMAZING media/multi purpose room. The fully fenced back yard is the perfect spot for your pet, with low maintenance shrubbery, trees, syn lawn, privacy screens and aggregate patio.

Zoned R4 means this home, if desired could legally qualify for a small business or rental. Beautifully finished aggregate stairs lead the way down the north side of the house, to a separate entrance into the large media, music room or home based business?

There is a long list of upgrades and details. Please do refer to the feature sheet for details. To name but a few: Big Blue H2O filter, water softener, reverse osmosis, electronic ionizer furnace, lower level fireplace,

Turtle Mountain is a relatively new neighbourhood of family and executive style homes enjoying spectacular VIEWS, multiple hiking and biking trails within walking distance of your door and yet the convenience of city amenities and all that Vernon has to offer, mi
