Description

It takes a very special house to make you instantly feel “at home”. 41 Benson Drive manages to do just this. Located in a quiet, north Barrie neighbourhood, this home is just minutes to everything your family could need including schools, parks, shopping and restaurants. It’s also the ideal location for commuters with highway access nearby.

Nestled on a 49’ x 109’ lot, backing onto EP land, this quality “Morra” built two-storey is the perfect combination of elegance and warmth. The all brick exterior, well established landscaping, concrete walkway and covered porch create lovely curb appeal while the double car garage, with inside entry, and paved driveway provide plenty of parking.

From the moment you step inside, you will be impressed by the bright and spacious principal rooms, the open concept floor plan and the attention to detail throughout.

Double French doors open from the foyer to the spacious living/dining room combination. Entertain guests in this warm and inviting space that boasts large windows, including an arched transom, neutral broadloom and décor. Formal meals are easily enjoyed in the dining room that offers easy access to the kitchen so the host is never far from their guests.

Your family will make many happy memories in the massive main floor family room, adjacent to the “heart of the home”, the eat-in kitchen. Decorative columns create architectural interest in the space and help to achieve the open concept feel to the space. The family room features a cozy gas fireplace, framed by two large windows, neutral broadloom and décor. Pot lights provide soft, ambient lighting.

Keep an eye on the kids while you make dinner in the stylish and functional kitchen. This bright and cheery room boasts plenty of cupboard space, including a pantry, ample counter space and a sun-drenched breakfast nook with walkout to the deck. Barbecuing couldn’t be easier! Casual meals, or a quick snack, are easily enjoyed at the breakfast bar and the fridge, stove and dishwasher are included.

A 2 pc powder room and the laundry/mudroom, with garage access, are also offered on the main level and the washer and dryer are included for your convenience.

The focal point of the two-storey foyer is the contemporary glass railing staircase that leads to the upper level. A huge window, with arched transom, in the hallway fills the space with natural light.

Double doors open from the hallway to the spacious master suite. This room is spacious enough for a king sized bed and offers enough room for both a sleeping and sitting area. The large walk-in closet provides plenty of storage space and numerous windows fill the room with sunlight. The master is served by a sumptuous 5 pc ensuite that features double sinks, a soaker tub and separate shower. The three family bedrooms, all generously sized, are served by a full 4 pc bath. Neutral carpet graces all four of the bedrooms and the window coverings and light fixtures throughout are included.

The fully finished lower level has been designed with family fun in mind. Set up the pool table or the big screen in the massive open concept rec room. Sconce and track lighting provide plenty of light and storage is not a problem with plenty of closet space. Neutral carpet graces the room and continues through to the fifth bedroom. This “bonus space” would make a great office, playroom or exercise room; whatever your family needs.

Recent updates include the gas furnace, shingles and garage doors (2012) and natural gas heat and central air conditioning ensure your comfort.

Step outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in your own backyard. Backing onto EP land means you have no neighbours behind, so you can enjoy the outdoors in privacy. The expansive deck, with privacy fence, offers plenty of space for barbecuing, sunbathing and outdoor entertaining. A built-in bench offers additional seating.

Stroll through the gardens in the beautifully landscaped backyard. Fully fenced, this yard offers lots of room for the kids or the family pet to run.

This home has been impeccably maintained and impresses, inside and out. You will be proud to call this house “home”!
