A first of its kind property to be offered for sale on the Naramata Bench, the Tamaran Residence is a nearly ten acre vineyard estate featuring a remarkable 7,472.8 square foot (including garage) home designed by architect Robert Mackenzie. The modern four bedroom, six bathroom home is created with sustainability in mind. It features a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels, electric car charging system, and sustainable finishes. The detached three car garage also features additional space in the “bunkhouse” above.
With a unique juxtaposition of angular architecture and connection with nature, the property backs onto the popular Trans Canada Trail (mountain biking and walking trail), with direct access from the property. The home complements the natural environment with geothermal heated polished concrete floors, locally sourced veneer ceiling panels, bamboo and locally sourced finishes, and exposed steel framing.
From the moment you walk in the door, the surrounding landscape is brought inside with you by the rough-cut stone feature wall and locally sourced finishes in the entryway. As you walk up into the main living area, the sunset-facing windows open up the home environment to the outdoors. Your eyes first settle on lush green vineyards that stretch down towards the brilliant blue Okanagan Lake. Then the angular roof of the home, jutting out like an arrow, guides your gaze towards the Giant’s Head Mountain across the lake in Summerland. This same view at night immerses you in the sky, with the LED lights in the roof blending effortlessly into the many stars before you.
The 9.74 acre estate has an approximate 6.5 acre planted vineyard gently sloping towards Naramata Road. The varietals planted are Merlot, Gewurtztraminer, Cabernet Franc, and Pinot Gris. Since the driveway separates the home from the main vineyard, the vineyard portion and home portion of the property have the potential to be subdivided.
The desires for both social connection and privacy are well served by the Tamaran Residence. From its secluded hillside location to two secure gates, total privacy is maintained within proximity of the city. For entertainment, the home has four guest accommodations with ensuites, a wine cellar and tasting room, an infinity pool with poolside sunroom and wet bar, and an ethereal living space centered around a wood burning fireplace.
This private lakeview property is located on the lush, gentle slopes of the Naramata Bench, just ten minutes from Penticton and seven minutes from the Naramata town centre. The perfect home for a social lifestyle, world class dining is also available nearby at places such as Poplar Grove Winery, Hillside Winery, and the Naramata Inn.
