PROPERTY INFORMATION

Take a step back in time and discover the Bennett Estate, formerly known as Brookside Manor. The iconic Kelowna landmark has been owned by two prominent Kelowna families. Built between 1912 and 1914 by F.R.E. DeHart in the Tudor Revival style, and then purchased in 1936 by William Andrew Cecil Bennett. Originally set on approximately 7 acres and bordering Mill Creek the estate served as the backdrop for numerous gatherings including the annual garden party on July 1. Now resting on approximately 0.2 acres it is surrounded by serene, mature landscaping with a spacious community lawn.

Designated a Heritage home by the Heritage society a majority of the residence remains with original details intact. Stepping into the historic home you’ll notice intricate cherry-finished woodwork along the walls, various portions of original wallpaper, chandeliers, and a beautiful marble entry. Wood floors carried throughout lend a sense of warmth. A grand staircase in the foyer leads to the second level. A highlight of the main level is the spacious living area with brick fireplace that will have you immersed in another time. Upstairs you’ll discover 4 huge bedrooms with an additional staircase leading to the kitchen. An abundance of space in the basement can be used as a rec room or home gym.

Located in the most tranquil setting in the heart of Kelowna you’ll the appreciate the proximity of downtown Kelowna and experience a setting reminiscent of living on acreage.
