DISCOVER THE VALUE FALKLAND REAL ESTATE HAS TO OFFER:

Once a hidden gem in the Okanagan-Shuswap region, Falkland is becoming a popular choice for people moving to the area. Due to its location, Falkland real estate offers solid value for those looking to raise a family or settle down for retirement.

Situated along Highway 97, Falkland is about a 30-minute drive west of both Armstrong and Vernon, and 50 minutes east of Kamloops. It’s far enough away from the city to keep homes for sale in Falkland BC affordable, but close enough to place the services and amenities you require within easy reach.

“Falkland is an interesting market at the moment,” says Jake Russell, of Sutton Group Lakefront Realty. “It has some incredible value.”

As an example, Russell points to one of his newest listings, a beautiful new home that includes a basement suite and a well-appointed shop. The private two-acre lot offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Falkland properties for sale start as low as $175,000 for 2.5 acres of vacant land, ranging all the way up to million-dollar homes situated on more than 150 acres of ranchland.

 

In between, there are plenty of other investment opportunities that offer tremendous value. With so much variety, there’s something in this rural market to suit every budget and taste.

For a town of its size—it has a population of about 600—Falkland boasts a fair number of shops, amenities and services to meet the day-to-day needs of most residents, including:

  • Johnny Appleseeds Deli & Bistro

  • The Ranch Café

  • Falkland Pub

  • Town fire hall

  • Falkland Community Hall

  • General store

  • Gas station

  • Falkland Curling Club

  • Okanagan Regional Library branch

  • The town also has its own elementary school, making it a big draw for families considering Falkland real estate.

You’ll know you’re getting close to Falkland even before you see the town.

 

That’s because there’s an enormous Canadian flag emblazoned on the side of Gyp Mountain, which rises above the north side of the community. The flag can be seen for miles and is renowned for being one of the largest in the country. It’s even lit up at night so you can see it any time of day.

Another one of Falkland’s claims to fame is its annual stampede rodeo, one of the oldest in Canada. Held every year on the Victoria Day weekend in May, this family-friendly event draws some of the top cowboy and cowgirl talent from Canada, US and beyond.

Falkland is also an outdoorsman’s paradise. The community is surrounded by mountains that are accessible by a network of forest service roads. In addition to Gyp Mountain, there’s Estekwalan Mountain to the northwest and Tuktakamin Mountain to the south. There are plenty of stocked trout lakes in the area, including:

  • Bolean Lake

  • Pillar Lake

  • Pinaus Lake

  • Spanish Lake

  • Arthur Lake

Many of these lakes feature recreation sites for camping, and the back roads are fun to explore on ATVs and dirt bikes.
