92 Clapperton Street, Barrie, ON, L4M 3G2, Canada
There is something about the charm of a century home that is hard to resist. Perhaps it’s the architectural details, the grand, formal nature of the design or simply the idea of the history within its walls. Whatever it is, once you step inside this magnificently restored home you are reminded of a bygone era. It is the perfect combination of Victorian charm and modern design, with careful attention paid during the renovations to maintain the original integrity of the home while incorporating the features and finishings sought by today’s homebuyer.
Nestled on a lush, beautifully landscaped lot, this home is just steps away from Barrie’s vibrant downtown core where gourmet restaurants, boutique shops, the waterfront and a wide variety of cultural attractions are yours to enjoy.
This five bedroom, four bath two-storey has exceptional curb appeal with a unistone front walkway, well established plantings and a meticulously maintained lawn. The detached double car garage/workshop and driveway provide ample parking for guests and family vehicles and just wait until you see the back-yard.
Original hardwood floors grace the foyer and continue through-out the principal rooms. A ceiling medallion and stained glass window remind you that this is not your ordinary subdivision home. Entertain guests or relax with family in the warm and inviting formal living room that features oversized baseboards, a stained glass window, crown moulding and a cozy gas fireplace. An oversized entry leads to the kitchen that is a true chef’s delight.
Recently remodeled, the eat-in kitchen is both stylish and functional. The warm cabinetry provides ample storage space and is complemented by the slate backsplash and unique copper rangehood. The centre island/breakfast bar features a prep sink for your convenience and is the perfect spot to chat with guests when preparing dinner. A second breakfast bar, overlooking the dining area, is the ideal spot for casual meals. The double farm-style apron sink and stained glass pendant lighting pays tribute to the home’s history and the under cabinet lighting and pot lights brighten every inch of your workspace. The gas stove, fridge, dishwasher and microwave are included.
An arched ceiling, with decorative corbels, frames the entry to the dining area. Open to the upper level, the unique design creates a bright and airy space that is perfect for family meals or more formal dinner parties. A French door opens to the rear deck—handy for barbecuing and outdoor entertaining. Spacious enough for large gatherings, this room features a warm colour palette, accented with oversized baseboards, and lots of natural light. A mudroom/pantry, located off the kitchen, offers additional storage space and features a slate tiled “mini-shower” - a great place to clean up after a day of gardening or to clean off your muddy rain boots. A 2 pc powder room is also offered on the main floor for your convenience.
Upstairs you find the family bedrooms and baths. Three bedrooms, including the master, are located on the upper level along with a spacious sitting room that is a great multi-purpose space. Need a family room, an art studio or a music room? This is the perfect space with hardwood floors, lots of natural light and a charming open railing overlooking the kitchen below. One of the bedrooms (currently used as an office) offers a door, with decorative glass insert, that leads to an upper level balcony looking out over the neighbour-hood, traditional in homes of the period. The bedrooms are served by a 4 pc bath that features ceramics, a clawfoot tub, hand held shower and updated vanity.
The upper level “loft” area boasts two additional bedrooms, both generously sized, and a nicely updated 2 pc powder room. The whimsical décor in the rooms is sure to please the prince and princess in your family and the sloped ceilings, pocket doors and oversized trim give the spaces character and charm.
The lower level boasts a rec space (partially finished) and a gorgeous 3 pc bath with a glass and tile shower, with rain forest shower head, a modern vanity with vessel sink and extensive ceramics. The laundry/utility room completes the lower level.
No need for a cottage when you call 92 Clapperton Street “home”. Barbecue or dine under the stars on the deck or catch some rays on the unistone patio that surrounds the inground saltwater swimming pool. This is sure to keep the kids—and adults alike—cool, active and entertained all summer long. The lava rock, with waterfall feature, creates a visually pleasing backdrop and the fence ensures your family’s safety and privacy. Listen to the sounds of nature in the towering trees as you enjoy all that backyard living has to offer.
Extensive updates to the plumbing, electrical and insulation and several renovations throughout including the kitchen and baths. The washer, dryer, central vac, garden shed and water softener are also included and natural gas heat will keep you toasty all winter long. This is a home that is sure to charm you!
