Kelowna home builder and interior designer the best in BC

One is a stylish, three-bedroom, 3,378-square-foot family home in the Upper Mission.

The other is the elegant and timelessly classic neutral-palette interior in a show home in the Lower Mission.

Both Kelowna projects are winners of prestigious Georgie Awards -- the highest accolade in BC for excellence in residential construction.

Best single-family home

The Bennett show home by Kelowna-based builder Carrington Homes is in the Trailhead neighbourhood at The Ponds development in the Upper Mission.

It won in the 'best single-family home over 2,200 square feet and $750,000' category.

It's a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home with not just a gourmet kitchen and great room on the main level, but huge recreation and family rooms in the lower level with a pool off the lower covered deck.

"Hearing our name and accepting our first-ever Georgie in a room full of such talented industry leaders was an unforgettable experience," said Carrington Homes construction manager Regan Dockrill.

"This award is a well-deserved accomplishment for the entire Carrington Homes team and we take immense pride in it, knowing we couldn't have done it without them."

While this was Carrington's first provincial Georgie award, it is no stranger to Okanagan Housing Awards.

Carrington won 'single-family home builder of the year' at this year's Okanagan awards.

"For as long as I can remember, I have lived and breathed design," said Millikin.

"It has always been a passion in my life, whether I was re-decorating my bedroom as a kid, painting my flat as a teen or designing and building big, beautiful homes -- I love every step. I feel your home is a your next, whether it is fancy or casual, it your home, your place to relax and unwind and you should love it."

Isabey Interiors and Align Wet Homes also won categories at the 2024 Okanagan Housing Awards.

The 32nd annual BC Georgie Awards were handed out at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.
