Foot Hills Real Estate Listings and Information
Foothills neighbourhood in Vernon BC is named for its geography as it is the foothills of Silver Star Mountain. Many homes have spectacular views of all three lakes… Swan Lake, Kalamalka Lake and Okanagan Lake. Although geographically located in the BX, the Foothills is part of the City of Vernon, and pays City taxes. Even the fire protection comes from Vernon. The Foothills is surrounded by the BX (which is part of the North Okanagan Regional District) on all sides. Silver Star Road links it to the City proper. In terms of housing, the lower roads contain housing inventory constructed in the early to mid 1990s. As one goes further up the hill, the housing inventory gets newer. It is a 15 minute drive to Silver Star Mountain Resort from the Foothills, and 15 minutes or less to major shopping and Downtown Vernon. Most homes enjoy fabulous views. Many see all three lakes. Night views are spectacular.
