From the Experts | Interview With Lakestone’s Jason Koverchuk

The new Lake Country, BC development – Lakestone – has been getting lots of attention lately.  We spoke with Jason Koverchuk, Director of Sales and Marketing at Lakestone to share more about this opportunity.

Chriscan: Tell us a little bit about the development at Lakestone?

Jason Koverchuck: Lakestone is a master-planned community comprised of 1,365 residences located on one of the best remaining parcels of land on the East shore of Okanagan Lake between Vernon & Kelowna. At the heart of B.C.’s wine country, Lakestone’s 550-acre community offers a rich, outdoor, all-year-round lifestyle and vacation escape. Expansive, affordable lots surrounded by pine trees and granite outcrops on the sloping hillside mean every resident can construct a home with a million-dollar, unobstructed view of the lake. Residents also have exclusive access to a $3.5-million Lake Club, a shared luxury amenity including a gym, outdoor swimming pool, entertaining space, lake access and storage for kayaks and paddleboards.

Phase 1 of Lakestone’s first release, Waterside, has already sold out, with a few remaining lots still available in Phase 2. Phase 3 was released June 21, 2014.

The Lake Club provides a place to socialize, enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that living beside the lake offers, maintain a balanced and healthy way of life and access the Okanagan Lake. With an outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, state-of-the-art gym, outdoor barbecue area, and storage for paddleboards and kayaks, purchasers can take full advantage of living the Okanagan lifestyle. Completion for the Lake Club is summer 2015.
