The big sell: This one-storey Penticton home proved attractive to both first-time buyers and investors. The reasons? A competitive price, a location just blocks from Okanagan Lake, and a 35-by-157-foot lot that is duplex-zoned, with the potential construction of two units of more than 1,600 square feet each. It has benefited from several upgrades, including a new roof and flooring. Inside, the open-concept plan provides a natural flow. There are three bedrooms, with one containing an ensuite bathroom. The park-like backyard has a large patio area, as well as a shop for storage and tinkering. The location is close to the airport, the downtown and numerous wineries.
