              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We are Brad & Cindy. After long careers in law enforcement in the lower mainland we have finally retired (sort of) and have moved to Oliver to enjoy a more laid back life. With only 3 traffic lights in downtown Oliver we rarely get caught in rush hour traffic anymore!

              Why the Owner Chose Oliver:
              As we planned for our future retirement we knew we wanted to re-locate from a bustling metropolitan area to a more peaceful and quiet rural setting. In 2004 we found this property and fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. We built the carriage house in 2005 and the 'Flaming Squirrel Ranch' was born. We were able to leave the lower mainland permanently in 2011 and moved into our brand new home beside the carriage house. Here we enjoy the slower pace, rural vistas and a dry temperate climate. Oh.....and the wine.....

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The 9 acre property backs onto a hillside, and the top of the property offers spectacular sweeping views of the Okanagan Valley. Wildlife & birds are bountiful. Free range cattle graze nearby. We are pleased to share our 'little piece of quiet'' with you!
