Arriving at first light, I chanced upon ‘TuscanyVillas’ on one of those rare moments when its Shields were down!
[From the 'Tuscany Villas' website: "...a collection of 84 exclusive condo units on the edge of Okanagan lake. The location means unobstructed views of the specatcular [sic] landscape.” … “Construction of this West Kelowna landmark is underway. Register today to become a Tuscany Villas insider.” … “Now is a great time to buy; with all indicators showing an end to the recent pricing and sales reductions, this is the perfect time to buy into your future home or investment property.” – ed.]
‘Nemesis’ doesn’t know whether those concrete columns and embellishments are structural – or merely ‘decorative’ – but it did remind him of the Revelstoke Dam’s Hydro-Power-Generation Hardware…
Why ‘Tuscan’?.. Holy Moley! Hey! Way up there at the top… Are those miniature Etruscan Arches? Was our Developer a student of Architectural History, or did he just spontaneously decide to Embellish? … or perhaps his inspiration flowed from a stay at the Vegas ‘Venetian’?
Postscript: On retiring, a mere stones throw away from ‘TuscanyVillas’, we note something even more disturbing than the Borg Presence… this lonely, incomplete (or possibly abandoned) private home. ‘Fortress at Monte Cassino’?…
