A new waterfront development of 65 recreational homes in the Shuswap Valley features a private marina with boat moorage — an increasingly rare opportunity in the region.

Legacy on Mara Lake is a $100-million project in a popular vacation spot that has been a summer holiday destination for generations.

Developer and Sable Resorts president Sam Boguslavsky said the name is apt.

“It’s an opportunity for those that grew up spending summers at Shuswap to revisit those memories and for those just discovering this spectacular lake, it’s an opportunity to establish those roots,” Bogulavsky said.

Suites in Legacy range in size from 660- to 2,189-square-feet. Prices start at $299,000 for a one-bedroom suite.

The private marina has a limited number of boat slips available. Due to its advanced design, depth and breakwater system, it will be the most sophisticated marina in the area.

Each suite has maximized views of the lake and the kitchens feature granite countertops and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.

Quartz countertops and deluxe jetted soaker tubs are among the high-end finishings in the bathrooms.

Suites also feature high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows.
