    Description

    Great mid-size acreage property above the west side of Okanagan Lake with a nice blend of trees and open clearings. The property borders on Crown land and is full of trails that are ideal for quads, dirt bikes, mountain bikes, hiking, etc. As you enter the property from the road, the land is gentle to moderately sloped with some nice flat areas and lots of great building sites. The land then becomes more steep as you move within the land, but lots of useable and flat land with views out towards the lake and the vineyards on the east side of the lake. Towards the upper boundary there are some intriguing undulations and canyons offering lots of recreational perks, viewpoints and picturesque geography. Wildlife viewings include big horn sheep. At the back of the land and on Crown land is a steep, scenic mountain sub peak and then the Crown land climbs higher. Endless backcountry to explore. A few season creeks dissect the land and nearby properties have good producing wells. Power is a short distance away.

    This property would make an amazing backcountry cabin location or is ideal for year-round living with easy access to either Vernon (35 minutes) or Kelowna (40 minutes).

    Zoning allows for a house and accessory house.

    Area Data

    Vernon (35 minutes away)

    Vernon is located in the sunny North Okanagan, where a casual lifestyle is matched with spectacular outdoor recreation opportunities. Vernon serves a regional population of over 100,000. The community is surrounded by three lakes and is well known for its hot summers and mild winters, which has attracted businesses and residents from across the globe. As one of the fastest growing communities in BC, Vernon is seeing strong employment growth in the professional services sector, the traditional resource sectors of forestry and agriculture, as well as the tourism, technology, manufacturing and service sectors. Ongoing public investments ensure Vernon and the region is a desirable place to locate. Recent public investments include the acquisition of the Okanagan Rail Trail, a major hospital expansion, library, secondary school and a new ice arena. The City of Vernon has been investing in improved civic infrastructure, transit expansion, and trail connections to enhance livability.

    Kelowna (40 minutes away)

    Kelowna is the province's third-largest metropolitan area (after Vancouver and Victoria), and the largest in the Interior. It is the 20th-largest metropolitan area in Canada, and few would argue one of Canada’s most desirable places to live with excellent local food sources, a strong economy, favorable climate and geography. Kelowna's estimated population in 2020 was 222,748 in the metropolitan area and 142,146 in the city proper. After many years of suburban expansion into the surrounding mountain slopes, the city council adopted a long-term plan intended to increase density instead—particularly in the downtown core. This has resulted in the construction of taller buildings, up to 36 stories high. Kelowna is home to the Interiors International Airport with excellent direct flights across Canada and into the US.

    Recreation

    The climate the Central Okanagan offers provides one of the most favorable for recreation in all of BC. Of course there are endless recreational opportunities at established facilities and parks as close as a few minutes away (mountain biking, world class golfing, alpine and Nordic skiing, boating on Okanagan Lake—boat Launch a few kilometres away, and much more) but really you have so many recreational perks right on the land. The land backs onto Crown land, offering an even bigger backyard, but there are lots of established trails and roadways that are ideal for motorsports, mountain biking, hiking, Nordic skiing in winter.
