Private outdoor patio area with BBQ. Great area for cycling, hiking, bird watching & fishing. Several Geocaches in nearby area. Quiet rural setting, but only 15 minutes away to downtown Oliver. Enjoy a movie in Oliver's very own old fashioned movie theater, tour our many award winning local wineries. Enjoy a great meal at one of our downtown restaurants, or take in a game of golf. Penticton, OK Falls, Osoyoos and the USA border crossing all within a 30 minute scenic drive.
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!
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 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!
Over 50 Wineries within 30 minutes to enjoy. Some offer patio lunches, some with gift shops and all sampling their locally made wines. Take a self guided walking tour at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory which is a short drive away. Bear, Madden and Sawmill Lakes are all within 10 km. Go fishing, sightseeing, look for painted turtles, and various bird species in the area. Numerous walking & hiking trails just steps away, and scenic view points. Cycle along the KVR trails. Numerous GEO Cache locations in the area. Alpaca farm in Willowbrook with handmade articles for sale. Wander through the old Fairview townsite, purchase local organic fruit and vegetables (in season), at Covert Farms. Enjoy weekly music concerts in the park, take a trail ride at Southern Pines Stables. Take in the Oliver flea market or visit the Farmers Market in Penticton or Osoyoos on the weekend! Numerous golf courses nearby- try a different one everyday if you like!
