    Description

    This 53.53 acre property is less than a 20-minute drive from the Okanagan Valley, a 5-minute drive to the Apex Ski Resort turn off, and only 3 hours to the Lower Mainland. Green Mountain Road winds its way through a picturesque valley yet undiscovered by most BC travellers. It's a unique situation to have such a quiet serene valley located in such close proximity to the Okanagan Valley.

    The property is broken into two distinct parts a lush valley bottom with two creeks running through and a steeper mountainside which backs onto Crown land. With great horseback riding in the area, this property could be developed into a premier equestrian estate. The lower valley bottom section of the property is approximately 10 acres in size with two year-round creeks running through. The property is fenced with good feed and pasture areas, and the seller has created a network of crystal-clear ponds where the water spills from one pond to the other. The seller has 2 water licences in place for drawing domestic water from the creeks. If there's one thing this property has, its water, and with the climate similar to the Okanagan Valley this is the ideal spot for anyone interested in gardening or self-sufficient living. In the heat of the summer this property is an oasis and you will not hesitate to go for a swim in the creek.

    The centrepiece to the property is the cedar log constructed “helicopter hanger” which the current owner is putting the finishing touches on. Call the listing REALTOR® for more information on this building. This building was built with quality in mind, and is absolutely rock solid. The current owner lands his helicopter on the roof. This one storey building is deceivingly large; once you walk through one of the large bay doors on either side of the building the concrete epoxy floors and tall ceilings makes the main room seem cavernous. Although this acreage is off-grid, you would never know it as the seller has top-of-the-line 50 KVA diesel generator providing adequate power for the property. Additional power sources could easily be added to the property including solar, wind and/or Pelton wheel system; the current owner will likely leave it to the new owner as to which additional system they might want to install. Additional servicing includes a fully licensed septic system and bed where the services of been run across the yard to service additional future RV sites or outbuildings. Complementary to the main log building is a smaller auxiliary building built almost to lockup stage. This quality constructed log auxiliary building is approximately 500 ft2 on the main floor with additional loft area. To round out the improvements, we also have the original building on the property which is a 540 square foot very modest building which is currently used by caretakers.

    All the heavy lifting is done on this property, and ready for your finishing touches. A fantastic option as a year-round residence or retreat property in easy striking distance of world-class skiing, the Lower Mainland and all the Okanagan Valley has to offer. Please call the listing REALTOR® for more information or to book a time to go by for a look.

    History

    The name Penticton is derived from a word in the Okanagan language. It is conventionally translated as "a place to stay forever" but is actually a reference to the year-round flow of Okanagan Lake through Penticton where it enters Skaha Lake.

    Penticton was incorporated as a district municipality on December31, 1908. In 1912, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) developed the Incola Hotel for the city, which operated for approximately 70 years.

    In 1948, a provincial highway opened between Hope and Princeton, which allowed access to Penticton, and created competition for the Kettle Valley Railway; headquarters for the railway were chosen to be in Penticton, in 1910, but the location burnt down in 1964. Much of the railroad's original route has been converted to a multi-use recreational trail, known as the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, which carries the Trans Canada Trail through this part of British Columbia.
