The topography of the land is gently sloping with a few acres with a little more aggressive terrain. The acreage backs onto crown land offering privacy and many recreational opportunities. An older ranch house is already in place while you build your dream home or start the creation of your own vineyard estate. There is 160 acres of lease potential available if agreeable. This is a court ordered sale.

The Similkameen is one of several historical regions of British Columbia whose foundations and settlement lay in the days of the Colony of British Columbia, and was one of the first areas of the province prospected as well as farmed and ranched. The area has seen a number of famous gold strikes and large mining operations, notably the Tulameen Gold Rush of the 1880s and 1890s and the Nickel Plate Mine at Hedley, but also including coal at Blakeburn and Coalmont, and copper at Allenby and Copper Mountain, all of these locations in the vicinity of Princeton.
Orcharding and ranching are important to the Similkameen Country, with orcharding and ranching operations in the Keremeos first started by Bohemian immigrant Francis Xavier Richter in 1864. Richter’s original 30 acres (120,000 m2) of fruit trees at Keremeos Centre are considered to be one of the two foundations of BC’s orcharding industry, the other being started by the Oblate Fathers at Okanagan Mission. Today the area is seeing a burgeoning wine industry and a boom in sunbelt-oriented recreation housing and property development.
