Private Retreat in Your Master Suite

The large comfortable master suite has a private balcony and two large windows making this a private retreat. The walk-in closet with skylight is large and warm.  The 4-pc master ensuite including jet tub is the largest bathroom in the house and reflects the forest in soothing dark green and wood.

A large laundry area is conveniently located on the same level as the three upper bedrooms.  Five sky lights bring in the sunlight and star filled nights to the cosy wood walled bedrooms.

Outdoor Living

After the enjoyable hospitality of the unique indoor spaces, move easily into one of two attached outdoor dining patios, and later over to the secluded fire pit where your family and guests will spend many happy hours enjoying the outdoor spaces.  The flower beds enhance the beauty of this property and are easily maintained with a sprinkler system.

A large 26×64 heated shop, dog run, horse corral, field crops, garden areas, and 40 ft pole barn complete this 34 acre property just 10 minutes from downtown Lumby. The quality workmanship in the wood detail and design is apparent throughout the house including in the carport ceiling.

Save Commissions when You Sell With 2% Okanagan

Savings on Commissions

Can be in the thousands of dollars when you list your property for sale with 2% Realty.  Even on a $300,000 home you can save $7,000 that sellers would normally pay based on the standard commission of 7% of the first $100,000 and 3% on the amount over $100,000. (See chart below)

For example, selling a $300,000 home would cost the seller $7,000 on the first $100,000 PLUS 3% of $200,000 (the remaining amount of the sale price) which is $6,000 for a total commission payout of $13,000!  But with 2% Realty and Randy Rauck, you pay only 2% of the total sale price. In this case, 2%of $300,000 which is $6,000!

Why Pay More to Sell Your Property?  See the chart below.  2% Realty offers all the service you’d expect from your licensed Realtor!
