ABOUT THE LAND

Located on 54 acres of ALR/A1 in Oyama, Lake Country, the property sits on a higher plateau overlooking Wood and Kalamalka Lakes. On the higher levels of the property, the Okanagan Lake can also be seen between the hills, giving this property a tri-lake view that’s quite spectacular.

The property backs onto Crown land with many older trails that will be explored and developed in connecting and re-vitalizing The High Rim Trail (an older conduit linking Coldstream, Vernon area to Hwy 33 by Black Mountain behind Kelowna which follows the ridge of the mountains past Oyama, Beaver and other fishing lakes midway located in Lake Country.) Eco tourism will be highlighted on the higher 43 acre portion of Pradha Farm with this in mind. Other agricultural or research opportunities is also being considered with a spring available for further development on the upper plateau.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

The land is rolling hills with several areas suitable for farming. The lower 10 acres is ideal for agricultural development with easy access to the property with two driveways off two public roads: Pada and Talbot. The land has not been farmed and is natural at this time, and mostly cleared. There is a well that would be able to sustain irrigation and water for 10 acres plus buildings. This also provides water to the current dwelling and to the yurt.

The property is fenced but needs repair in some areas. One larger dwelling exists that is currently occupied by the landowner’s family. A yurt is being erected for vacation rental all year round. No other buildings exist at this time.

The lower portion has electricity hooked-up and water. The landowner would like to create living spaces for those interested in developing the property with a variety of agricultural projects. A centre will also be built for the purpose of hosting workshops, and supporting music, arts, and cultural events.
