Another Game Changer for Okanagan, Wine & Real Estate
Make no mistake, the money pouring into the Okanagan Wine Industry is real.
After posting news about $100 million investment only 60 days ago, this month ANOTHER $95 million investment in Okanagan Wineries. Read blog article here:
$95 million announcement from the wine industry here:
HUNTERS HILL DOES FEATURE BEAUTIFUL VIEWS AND OPEN SPACES.
BUT WILL THESE BE PROTECTED?
Home Construction at Hunters Hill
Hunters Hill is not chock-a-block with tiny lots like one would normally expect with other fully serviced subdivisions. Hunters Hill is also not cookie-cutter lots, one the same as the next.
Hunters Hill lots are spacious, fully serviced, and available for purchase.
The geology of the area has created topography with a series of ridges, plateaus and gullies. The topography is gentle enough that there is not one prominent skyline, rather, the natural ridgelines rise and drop, creating natural backdrops that minimize any visual impact between houses.
Importantly, well thought out planning has resulted in large areas of natural terrain and beautiful open spaces interspersed with the fully serviced home-sites.
Home-sites are situated to enhance the natural view protection with thoughtful positioning. The visual/physical context of the site is not about ease and availability for plan-book, modular or cookie cutter type housing.
Outdoor living spaces such as decks, terraces, pools and patio areas will highlight this natural terrain and the enhanced privacy of the Hunters Hill home-sites is something to celebrate for those of us who love the outdoors (and privacy, and views, and morning coffees and evening wine with friends…outside!).
Use of detached garages or parking areas reduce the visual impact while providing easier and safer vehicle access. By setting attached garages slightly back from the house, the “apparent mass” of the visual structure is minimized.
250 486 2529 is the direct line to the developer. Lots are not listed for sale on MLS, but information on how to own a lot at Hunters Hill, contact the Developer direct.
Contact Developer direct to arrange a site visit. This meeting will help you get your bearings on what is a very large project spread across over 160+ acres. The maps and drawings are just not able to display the scope and space of the lots and the space between the development areas.
After this initial visit with the Developer, arrange your next visit without the developer (or with, if you like, its up to you).
But we want you to get a true feel for the project, and your choice of lots, so just arrange a time for your second visit, with our without the Developer.
Select your lot. Ensure the lot has not sold so as to avoid disappointment. Inform the Developer of your choice. Ask any questions.
Next, you will receive a copy of the Disclosure Statement which has been filed with the Registrar of Real Estate. This Statement ensures you are fully informed, (including Design Guidelines), in writing, of all aspects of the development.
After this, you can ask the Developer to draft a contract to purchase your lot!
This contract is written on a standard BC Real Estate Association form, and is between yourself as buyer and Hunter’s Hill Holdings Ltd, as seller. A 10% deposit is payable with the contract, and is placed in a provincially regulated Trust Account which is not accessible by the Developer for any reason.
As buyer, you have the right to cancel, or “rescind” the contract for a 7 day window. If you change your mind, you can, without interest or penalty, within those first 7 days. Once that 7 day window has passed, the contract is firm and binding, the “sold sign” goes up!
Approximately 45- to 120 days later, the buyer will be notified of an amendment to the Disclosure Statement, at which time the final 10% deposit is due and payable, again into the Trust Account.
Even though you are dealing direct with the Developer (Patrick Murphy) who is a licensed Realtor, and even though the deposit is placed into the Re/Max Orchard Country Trust Account, there is no buyer agency.

Only in the Okanagan does a homeowner give location instructions like these for friends to come see your new lot:
“Well, turn right at the fruit stand, pass the vineyard then take a right at the organic orchard, then left at the family farm…and you’re at Hunters Hill”
Love this little town!
Now, more specifically, WHERE IS HUNTERS HILL?
- Minutes off Hiway 97
- Overlooking Sumac Ridge Winery (and golf course)
- Beside the Crown Land Ridge that runs all the way past Garnet Lake to Peachland
Turn West off Hiway 97 onto Jones Flat Road for about 1,200 meters.
Turn North on Bentley Rd for about 1,200 meters.
Turn West on Sanborn St for about 600 meters.
You are now parked at the extreme south end of the Hunters Hill project.
Do Not Enter.
There is no public access.
This is private property.
The land is not developed, and we are not welcoming visitors unless accompanied by the Developer.
BUT, we are very pleased to arrange a time to meet you and show you the project in person. This is not about being able to deliver a sales pitch, this is about a pristine piece of private property that has strict controls over public access.
We look forward to viewing the property at a time convenient, call or text direct, and sometimes short notice can work fine. Give us a try 250 486 2529
