Just-Listed $2.8M Kelowna Home Won an Award For Its Tuscan Flair
The 2003 romantic comedy Under The Tuscan Sun centers on a writer — played by Diana Lane — who finds herself in Tuscany and buys a villa on a whim, hoping it would change her life.
For Canadians seeking a similar refresh, a home for sale in Kelowna, British Columbia has enough Tuscan flair that you won’t even need to move to Italy.
Sitting at 127 Skyland Drive in Kelowna’s Wilden neighbourhood, about 15 minutes away from downtown and Kelowna International Airport, the 2-storey home boasts 4,155 sq. ft of space, with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
Originally built in 2013, Edgecombe Builders won a 2013 Tommie Award for excellence in design, specifically for the Tuscan flair they infused into the home via an artistic use of burl wood, craftsmanship, and other subtle features.
With respect to the unique 0.22-acre lot this home sits on, its builders maximized the area by ensuring each space was designed with intention and purpose, whether that be to create privacy, or to showcase the views of the nearby mountains and Okanagan Lake.
Further, the home is surrounded by various hiking trails, such as the Lochview Trail and McKinley Trail, and is also within walking distance of Knox Mountain Park.

Inside the home, which has gated entry, you’ll find the primary bedroom on the main floor, a spa-like bathroom, a 100-bottle wine room, and a kitchen with a service window to the outdoor patio bar. The squared staircase leads to the upper level, where you’ll find a balcony, a large entertainment space, and three bedrooms, one of which also includes a kitchenette.
Our Favourite Thing
The upstairs living space is almost like a separate home, with its own entertainment area, a small kitchen, and billiards table. Not only does it overlook the main floor, it also has vaulted ceilings, parts of which have polished wooden finish that really make it feel like a villa.
The home is also dappled with French doors, and is topped off with heated slab floors to maintain a constant and comfortable ambient temperature.
Whether it’s on the patio, next to the firebowl, or by the salt water pool, at 127 Skyland Drive, you can spend your days basking under the Kelowna sun.
