Waking up every day to look out the window and be greeted by breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake and the valley is something many of us dream of. But this idyllic vision doesn’t have to stay in your imagination.
In Kelowna, the Stober Group – a local developer with over 60 years of experience in the industry – is launching a collection of beach residences designed to inspire more city dwellers to move to the vibrant and beautifully picturesque region of rolling hills and award-winning wineries.
Embedded in the coveted Lower Mission Community, MOVALA Makes modern beachfront living in Pandosy Village possible with stunning, spacious one, two, and three bedroom homes starting at mid $ 400,000.
MOVALA will consist of two medium-height residential buildings connected by a spectacular, exclusive lakeside veranda – one of the largest outdoor offerings in Okanagan. This area will include a resort-inspired lake-view pool, hot tub, fireplace lounges, bowling green, grills, and dining tables.
In addition, residents have access to fitness and yoga studios, a social lounge and game room, a library and a business center with work hubs – ideal for those who work remotely.
The accessibility of a community is at the top of the must-have list for many homebuyers. MOVALA is conveniently located in Kelowna’s pedestrian-friendly beachfront area and at the gateway to the city’s extensive recreational corridor.
The prime location (which has a similar vibe to Kitsilano) will be steps from the beach and an abundance of urban amenities, including vibrant shop fronts, bakeries, galleries, boutiques, and grocery stores, making it easy to live without needing a car. Nearby entertainment includes Shoreline Brewing Co. and Diner Deluxe.
Residents can find Urban Fare – among other shopping alternatives – in the Mission Park Shopping Center. And when it comes to enjoying the best of the Okanagan, there are plenty of opportunities to get outside year-round, whether it’s a local wine cellar for a wine tasting, an orchard during harvest season, or Kelowna’s Big White ski area – known for its Champagne powder.
With beach parks, hiking trails that lead to impressive views, bike paths and first-class golf resorts within easy reach, outdoor enthusiasts are spoiled for choice at MOVALA.
The landmark design of the concrete-built MOVALA has been carefully thought out and again sets a new standard for building in Kelowna, with every architectural element and dynamic curve curated to complement the surrounding natural environment and improve year-round comfort for residents .
Sustainability is at the heart of this design, and first-class construction techniques that reduce energy and CO2 emissions – in conjunction with EV-enabled parking spaces – have resulted in MOVALA being LEED certified. In addition to concrete, the steel construction reduces the sound transmission of the building and increases the static durability.
The sophisticated interior design of each house creates a seamless connection to the landscape outside and features warm, neutral color palettes and upscale furnishings. Residents can choose between Dawn and Dusk color schemes to enrich their living space and complement their personal style, with bespoke upgrades also available.
In any home, 9-foot ceilings create an airy feel, sustainable vinyl plank floors (either herringbone or straight) ensure a clean and minimal aesthetic, while sleek, energy-efficient lighting fixtures brighten the space.
The floor-to-ceiling windows offer incomparable views and are covered with roller blinds.
Polished quartz worktops, an island with bar stool seats and high-quality integrated appliances can be found in the kitchen, including a BOSCH fridge and freezer (with ice cube maker), an induction hob, a wall-mounted oven and extractor fan, a dishwasher and a Panasonic microwave .
And if residents want to dine al fresco, they can do so on their sprawling private deck – one of the largest in the area – ranging from 500 to 2,200 sq ft.
However, the residents of MOVALA do not limit themselves to entertaining guests in their homes. A host of exclusive amenities are available on-site, including a Residence Club with a private dining room, a temperature-controlled wine cellar (with individual lockers), and even a guest suite for guests who come from outside the city can stay.
The Beach Club is another amenity that provides storage space for water sports equipment and e-bikes so homeowners don’t have to worry about finding off-site storage for their seasonal sports and leisure equipment.
