Penticton house description

Location! Location! Location! We are within minutes of beaches, golf courses, biking trails, and wineries. Situated on 3.2 acres on the Naramata Bench with magnificent views of Lake Okanagan, we are rated as one of the best views in the area. Our property is an active vineyard where we grow gewürztraminer grapes. It is ideal for lovers of wine, food and the outdoors.

The setting Is peaceful and rural and within 12 minutes of downtown Penticton and 7 minutes of the village of Naramata. We are in the heart of the wine-growing region with 25 wineries along on the Bench and over 100 within an hour's drive. The KVR/Canada Trail popular for biking and walking is 3 minutes behind our home. There are 3 beaches, golf courses and numerous tourist attractions within easy reach of our place.

Our self-contained 2 BR suite is on the ground floor with a private entrance. It is ideal for two couples or a family of 4. It is tastefully decorated with antiques and artwork from Asia and Africa where your hosts worked for 18 years. Each bedroom has a queen bed, TV, private bathroom with bathrobes and hair dryer. Sleep in our African Room in an exotic wooden bed from the spice island off Kenya or try our Indonesian Room with a teak sleigh bed surrounded by Balinese artwork. The suite is fully air-conditioned.

The spacious living room overlooks the lake and has all the modern conveniences -- free WiFi, 46' flat screen TV, DVD player, music and movie library. The kitchenette is well-equipped with microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee-maker and much more. Alternatively, guests can cook up a sumptuous meal on the patio BBQ or relax outdoors and watch the amazing sunsets. There are beach chairs and chipping/putting green for guest use.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: Your hosts, Les and Nancy were born in Canada. They had the unique opportunity to live and work overseas for many years in Asia and Africa. Les retired as an aircraft maintenance engineer in 1990. Nancy continues working as an education consultant in under-developed countries to improve access and quality of basic education during the winter months. They are avid travelers and enjoy meeting people from around the world.

              Why the Owner Chose Penticton:
              After spending 18 years overseas, we decided to settle in the Okanagan Valley because of its breath-taking scenery, abundance of sunshine, recreational activities, and our love of 'wine'. Penticton, which means 'a place to stay forever' is truly a place to retire and hone our golf and wine-making skills.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our 3.2 acre property is peaceful and private with panoramic views of the lake and mountains from every corner of the property. The vineyard is a great place to stroll or try your hand at suckering or thinning grapes. The suite and its patio offer comfortable places to relax and watch the amazing sunsets while sipping your favorite wine.
