Lake Country: Showhomes put on display

Seven developers in Lake Country will participate in the inaugural Spring Parade of Homes at The Lakes on May 26,11 5 p.m.

The Lakes development will see seven different showhomes opened to the public for the inaugural Spring Parade of Homes set for Saturday, May 26, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Seven showhomes are participating in the tour showcasing the variety of neighbourhoods, building opportunities, developers and the community partners that make The Lakes more than just a housing development.

Each showhome will host its own activity to add to the excitement of the weekend. As well, every home you tour earns you another entry into our draw for prizes valued at over $4,000.

The Property Source Group, the Lakes development realtors,  will provide refreshments and have organized an  art exhibit with renowned local artists at The Lakes Sales Centre.

The public will have a chance to review the masterplan of The Lakes development, a contemporary community straddling a natural plateau above the shores of Wood Lake and Okanagan Lake, in the heart of Lake Country.

Enjoy lunch off the barbecue at Cadence at The Lakes and tour one of two rancher-style showhomes. As a bare-land strata neighbourhood, Cadence offers maintenance-free living with fully landscaped yards, geothermal heating/cooling and resort style amenities.

Head over to Crystal Heights and tour the inspired collection of semi-detached town homes in this family-friendly community. These well-??spaced two and three-storey Craftsman homes provide the perfect background as you enjoy a classic wine and cheese spread.

Make your next stop the Built-Rite Homes show home and try Lake Country’s own Jimmy’s Mobile Woodfire Baked Pizza Oven. A certified BuiltGreen and Energy Star builder, Built-Rite Homes was the first builder to break ground in The Lakes development.

Admire five fully restored classic cars, including a 1957 Chevy Belair convertible, when you visit the 2011 multiple gold Tommie award winning show home of family run Destination Homes.Their customized room packages are designed to take the stress and hassle out of selecting options for your new home.

Finally, refreshments will be served at the show homes of two more outstanding building partners at The Lakes. McBratney Homes and Noba Vision are both long-time community partners of The Lakes, offering design and build services for buyers of all levels.

Every show home toured provides you another chance to win some great prizes including a full set of Taylor-made golf clubs with carrying bag, valued at over $2,500. Also up for grabs are golf packages from The Harvest Golf Club and various prizes from local Lake Country businesses.
