The first offering of terraced ranchers sold out so quickly at Skaha Hills that the residential development is planning to release more in Spring 2017.

It only took one day for the first set of terraced ranchers to sell out, which is par for the course for the residential development, which has exceeded their own sales expectations continually since it launched in April 2014.

Skaha Hills has now sold 118 homes, 51 homes are occupied and 47 more are about to be completed. There is only one home left in the second release of 47 single family homes and the first release sold out in 2014.

The first residents of Skaha Hills have been living in their homes for a year and have had the opportunity to experience the community as its quickly coming together.

“It’s been exciting watching the community grow in such a short time,” said Brent Carson, who was among the first homeowners to begin living at Skaha Hills, “The aftermarket service we have received from Skaha Hills has been excellent and we really appreciate everything that went into getting us settled in our new home.”

At full build out, the master planned community will consist of about 600 homes along with amenities like walking trails, off leash dog parks, a clubhouse and related facilities.

PLAY Estate Winery, at the entrance of the Skaha Hills community, has been growing alongside the development, and is readying for its’ first on-site crush with this harvest. Carson said it adds to the experience of Skaha Hills.

“The views are spectacular and we really enjoy have the winery right there. It’s a great spot for lunch or dinner and the wine is excellent,” said Carson.

Skaha Hills is a partnership between Greyback Construction, and the Penticton Indian Band Development Corporation, part of the band’s long-term vision to stimulate economic growth for the region through strategic partnerships with local businesses and the City of Penticton.
