Living in Rutland
On the east side of Kelowna you will find one of the quickest growing and most affordable areas to live in Kelowna, B.C. known as the enclave of Rutland.
Rutland is accessed via Highway 33, the main thoroughfare that connects one of Kelowna’s busiest shopping districts directly from Highway 97. Highway 33 intersects the neighbourhoods of Springfield and Belgo to the south with the family friendly, central and downtown Rutland neighbourhoods and the Upper Rutland Bench on the north side of Highway 33 stretching up towards Sexsmith Road.
Continuing up Highway 33 you will find one of Rutland’s newest suburban neighbourhoods and picturesque golf communities known as Black Mountain, which is also a very short drive to world class Big White Ski Resort.
Further past Sexsmith Road extending to the north east of Highway 97 are the rural communities of Ellison, Scotty Creek and Postill Lake. You will also find the Kelowna International Airport, YLW, on this side of Highway 97.
Directly across from YLW’s main drive, is one of Kelowna’s most sought after golf communities known as Quail Ridge located on the north west side of Highway 97. A hop, skip and jump over a few blocks you will find one of the most exciting new communities in Kelowna known as the University District.
Why Choose to Buy Real Estate in Rutland
I was born and raised in Rutland and continue to work and promote the area. Even though my young family and I have moved out of the south boundary area to farm acreage on the outskirts of Kelowna, my extended family still lives in Rutland and I continue to focus my real estate business around buyers and sellers of Rutland real estate. Rutland is an amazing community to raise a family and the down to earth, good people in Rutland are what continue to make it so special.
