Description

Welcome to this stunning executive home nestled in Barrie’s convenient south end. This family-friendly neighbourhood offers easy access to all amenities including schools, parks, shopping and the lake. It’s also the ideal location for commuters with both GO Service and the highway just minutes from your front door.

This gracious and spacious family home has lovely curb appeal with an all brick exterior, accented with keystone detailing, a unistone front entry, covered front porch with pillars and double front doors with decorative glass inserts and Bluetooth lock system. The double car garage, with inside entry, and paved driveway provide ample parking for guests and family vehicles. Once inside you are impressed at once by the open concept design, functional floor plan and quality finishings throughout. With a total of 5 bedrooms (3 up, 2 down) and 3 & 1/2 baths, this home is perfect for a large family. Elegant and sophisticated, this home exudes pride of ownership from top to bottom, inside and out.

A ceramic floored foyer greets your guests and opens up to the principal rooms which include a formal living room and separate dining room. Columns frame the entry to the living room and, combined with the coffered ceiling, create architectural interest in the space. Gleaming hardwood floors grace the living room and extend through to the separate dining room that is the perfect setting for your most special occasions. A neutral colour palette, accented with crisp white trim, modern light fixtures and extensive pot lights give a sleek, contemporary feel to the principal rooms and the California shutters throughout are included.

To call the Great Room “impressive” seems like an understatement. This space boasts soaring 17’ ceilings and numerous windows that fill the entire room with natural light. The focal point of the space is the stunning gas fireplace. A built-in “nook” above the fireplace is the ideal spot to display your treasured artwork and your stockings will look very festive hanging from this mantle. All of the light fixtures throughout have been upgraded and complement the contemporary décor. A sweeping hardwood staircase leads from the Great Room to the upper level where you find the family beds and baths.

The main floor also offers a two piece powder room and the laundry/mudroom with garage access. Both rooms feature motion sensor lighting for your convenience.

The family chef will feel right at home in this stylish and function-al kitchen. Luxurious granite countertops provide ample counter space and complement the rich toned cabinetry. A tiled back-splash creates a seamless transition between cupboard and counter and under cabinet lighting brightens every inch of your workspace. Modern hardware and fixtures, including touch activated taps, give a sleek, contemporary feel to this warm and inviting space. The stainless steel dishwasher and microwave and the garburator are all included for your convenience.

Casual meals are easily enjoyed in the breakfast nook or at the expansive breakfast bar. Double French doors lead from the kitchen to the deck and fenced backyard—perfect for barbecuing and outdoor entertaining.

Upstairs you have three spacious family bedrooms including the master suite. This room boasts a large walk-in closet and a sumptuous 5 pc ensuite with double sinks, soaker tub and separate shower. Extensive ceramics are featured throughout, including a tiled backsplash, and the vanity provides lots of storage space.

The two family bedrooms, both generously sized, are served by a full 4 pc bath. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and are sure to please the little prince and princesses in your family. Natural gas heat and central air conditioning ensure your sleeping comfort all year long. The water softener and central vac are both included and the hot water heater has been recently replaced for your convenience.

The fully finished lower level features a spacious rec room that is ideal for entertaining or relaxing with family. This room boasts the second gas fireplace, with decorative surround, quality laminate floors and a cheery décor. The rec room features a kitchenette that is the perfect spot to “whip up a snack” on family movie night. Two additional bedrooms, both generously sized, are served by a full 4 pc bath and a games area makes the perfect playroom for the kids. Don’t need 5 bedrooms? Use one as an office, gym or hobby room; whatever your family needs. Pot lights, updated fixtures and nice sized windows provide lots of light. It’s so bright and airy, you will forget that you are “in the basement”.

Barbecuing, dining al fresco or just “catching some rays” is easy on the expansive rear deck overlooking the fenced and landscaped backyard. Soak away your stress in the soothing waters of the hot tub as you watch the kids play in the safety of the fenced backyard. This is what backyard living is all about!

Exceptionally cared for and decorated with a designer’s flair, this home is immaculate and move-in ready. The only thing missing is you!
