BCLiving takes you inside one of the most outrageously upmarket real estate offerings in the province

Address: 771 Highway 97 South, Peachland
Price: $7,499,000
MLS: 163846

The skinny: Six-bedroom, five-bathroom, 10,000-square-foot lakefront house on 20 acres in the Okanagan.

The bling: It’s all getting a little much out in the real world, and you don’t like being brought down by other peoples’ misery. What’s the use of being loaded if you can’t have a life unencumbered by politics, ethics and middle class liberals marching on the streets? Seriously. You deserve nothing less than a carefully catered no-carb life, regular mani-pedis, and a hot personal trainer. Relax that face, baby: the Botox can only do so much. Everything really will be all right, because here is the answer: a massive Okanagan estate for you to hunker down in and wait for the apocalypse to pass. This is truly a shelter with the perfectly pampered in mind—you have an exclusive master wing for privacy, a separate suite for the kids and a lakeside cottage for your much-needed mini-breaks without ever leaving the property. Make the most of that U.S. dollar exchange rate while you can, pack your bags, and ride out the storm.

The hidden extras: Two four-car garages (think about that for a moment), billiards room, media room, private dock.
