Gearing up for Father’s Day with the PNE Prize Home Grand Prize

 

With Father’s Day right around the corner, let’s explore some aspects of this year’s PNE Prize Home Grand Prize and take a look at the special details that many dads care about.

You want a well-manicured lawn, but prefer relaxing with your feet up even more? We get that.

This Husqvarna robotic lawn mower is made exactly for days like that! It helps keep your lawn in check, cutting thin layers at a time and naturally fertilizing the soil with miniscule clippings. The Automower® is perfect for those who love gardening but not necessarily the heavy lifting that comes with it.

With the beautiful Okanagan as your backdrop, spend more time enjoying the scenery, but still keeping the grass greener on your side. With all that extra time on your hands, revisit that long lost hobby of yours – Gardening! The PNE Prize Home grand prize package makes yard care easy with complete Husqvarna tool kit, including a chainsaw, blower, trimmer, and hedge trimmer. Feeling ecstatic? Thought so – you’re going to love spending time outside now.

With the interior decorated as nicely as it is in the Prize Home, you’ve got to have outdoor furniture to match. The full set of outdoor furniture from Coast Spas, you’ll take hosting a barbeque night with friends to the next level! Catch up over the fire table, reminisce about the good ‘ol days, and plan the trip you’ve been putting off for years.

When you’re ready to come back inside from your adventures around Kelowna’s hills and forests, keep your living space in check by entering the house through the mudroom. This space is the ideal transitional area after dusty hikes and muddy trail walks.

Best of all, there’s a wash station to clean off the dog’s muddy paws, and human’s boots too! The cubbies and cabinets offer functional and effective opportunities for you to store gear away until you’re ready to take on the world again.

To end the day off right, retreat to your Coast Spas hot tub under the gazebo, and relax with a glass of wine.

Take a look and experience the home for yourself with the virtual tour found at the PNE Prize Home website.

Entertaining Made Easy with Two Kitchens in the 2019 PNE Prize Home

Low and behold – it’s the time of the year to win your dream house with the PNE Prize Home Lottery! This farmhouse-inspired masterpiece, coupled with a contemporary twist will be relocated to Kelowna’s scenic Kirschner Mountain – so you can enjoy breathtaking views while preparing your every meal. This year’s Prize Home features two kitchens, making sure you have all the space to gather with and entertain your guests.

Nothing says home more than a clean and spacious kitchen that makes guests feel welcomed and you feel at ease. Since people at parties gravitate towards the kitchen, and you want to remain it tidy, this home comes complete with a separate prep kitchen – filled with Whirlpool appliances – to hide the mess and keep your secret recipes safe behind closed doors!

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the 36-inch KitchenAid induction cooktop and copper-toned Elica hood are the stars of the show. Add the finishing touches to your sauces here to leave your guests watching in awe from your dining nook. Don’t forget to start your guests off right with a chilled drink from the under-counter beverage centre from KitchenAid. On restless summer nights, grab your favourite midnight snack from your built-in fridge, all without making a peep because of the soft-close door technology from KitchenAid.

All of the appliances were supplied by PNE Prize Home partner Coast Appliances.

 

The off-white Corian quartz countertops require little to no maintenance, so you can focus on hosting and will never run out of counter space. The Maple Lacquer finished cabinets offer extra storage space, so you can tuck your finest china away.
