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 worked as an education consultant in under-developed countries to improve access and quality of basic education until 2012. 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 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 favourite wine or whipping up a meal on the BBQ.
