If you have been considering downsizing out of a home in one of Kelowna's many hillside neighborhoods and entering a new phase of life in one of Kelowna's more central flatter areas, you are not alone. Many residents who's family homes in the hills have now outgrown them are looking to the central urban areas to satisfy their needs for amenities, recreation, and a lifestyle that is less dependent on cars.
Many gated communities (Balmoral, Sandpointe, and many others) are seeing a new level of popularity, with this new group of buyers eager to find comfortable, low maintenance homes in central areas. With develop-able land at a premium in these areas, developers are looking at creative ways to produce new housing that will capture the attention of these relatively affluent down-sizers. GableCraft (on KLO Road) and Kensington Terrace (on Fuller Avenue) are two interesting examples of successful examples of new townhouse developments that have caught the eye of the new wave of empty nesters.
