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 Okanagan-Similkameen, BC, Canada:
When knew when we retired, we wanted to re-locate to a more peaceful and quiet rural setting. In 2004 we found this property. We built the carriage house in 2005 and the 'Flaming Squirrel Ranch' was born. We moved into our brand new home beside the carriage house in 2011. 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 plus acre property backs onto a hillside, and the top of the property offers spectacular sweeping views of the Okanagan Valley. Wildlife & birds are bountiful. Looking to the front of the property is an expansive, unobstructed view of Meyers Flats Provincial Park which is often dotted with free range cattle & deer. It is also fairly common to see coyotes & once in a while a black bear or bobcat. We are happy to share our 'little piece of quiet'' with you!
