AT A GLANCE
Veranda Beach is located near Oroville, Wash., about four and one-half hours from Vancouver, BC, and five hours northeast of Seattle. Oroville, population 1,670, is in Okanogan County, the largest county in Washington state, known for its apple farming, wine-grape production and award-winning winery. Oroville is the closest city to the Canadian border and the popular desert town of Osoyoos, BC.
With sweeping views of Lake Osoyoos, the beach and mountains, the Vineyard Cottages at Veranda Beach presents buyers with an opportunity to own a cottage in a farm setting surrounded by vineyards planted with Barbera grapes, a well-known 13th-century grape variety from Monferrato in Piedmont, Italy.
The single-level Chardonnay and Merlot Cottages, and the double-level Cabernet and Barbera Cottages are fully furnished. This includes one and one-half garages per cottage. They feature indoor/outdoor living with terraces stretching into the vineyards and screened-in verandas. The vineyard-vista pool and pavilion area includes changing rooms, an outdoor kitchen and barbecue area.
The cottages feature natural finishes and fabrics throughout, including painted pine and wicker, cottage quilts, cottons and linens. Granite countertops, wood flooring, ceiling fans, a screened-in veranda and a designer porch swing are standard to every cottage. Optional upgrades include outdoor showers, outdoor wood burning fireplaces, hot tubs, special wood flooring and vintage reproduction appliances.
There are also six vineyard estate homesites and four exclusive beachfront homesites. The vineyard estate homesites have views of Lake Osoyoos and the beach. The beachfront homesites have private locations on the beachfront that are close to all the activities and amenities. Nature trails connect to the Veranda Beach vineyards and Village Center, as well as along the lakefront.
All Veranda Beach owners and their guests have access to more than a mile of private beach with a sheltered marina and walking trails. The village trail leads to the Village Center, which will include lodging at the Inn at the Point, a shop called Tuck Shop, a Village Hall and a ‘50s-era diner. The master plan also includes an amphitheatre, an aquatic park, equestrian center, basketball courts and more.
