According to RE Max realtor Jeff Queen, Kaleden’s Sickle Point property has been up for sale for a year now.
A large sign is now on display on the property, facing the Kettle Valley Railway rail trail.
ReMax’ on line real estate ad describes the property as:
“CONTINGENT. Own your very own piece of lakefront paradise. Locally known as Sickle Point, this 4.81 acreage is the perfect site for an exclusive, private estate! Over 2000 feet of incredible lakefront. Views of the mountains, Okanagan Falls to the south and Penticton to the north. Subdivision Application in Process.”
Property taxes are listed at $5,471.
Sickle Point is also described on line at the property’s own website, accesible at:
“Sickle Point – Kaleden, BC
Sickle Point, comprising 4.87 acres, is aptly named with over a third of a mile (1,768) feet of waterfront. This one of a kind property in the South Okanagan, British Columbia is one of the most unique properties available for sale in North America.
Situated on Skaha Lake, the waterfront to the north features a gradual sloping sandbar stretching over 100 yards and to the south an ecological reserve. There is an abundance of wildlife with over 100 species of birds, fish and deer that often roam the property.
This remarkable property is the perfect estate. This property is irreplaceable.”
The website describes two possible scenarios for the property:
– subdivided into five separate lots
– a single family estate of 4.34 acres with .98 acres of buildable area and 1,778 feet of shoreline.
At the end of Alder Avenue, where a highly controversial road extends along the shoreline to the Sickle Point property, another sign has been recently erected that reads:
