BARRIE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 415 LITTLE AVE, BARRIE

This week’s we go south of Barrie to Little Avenue just off of Hurst Drive.  As you know we look for something that is a bit unusual, in a good way.  So read on to see what we found.

It features a very large finished basement for some big family nights.

A large living room on the main floor with large windows for great light.  In the winter the stone fireplace provides warmth as you look out at the snow.

This is what we thought was really cool.  To do all the entertaining you need a gourmet kitchen, we love this.  It has a large dining area attached, where all good parties end up.

With a large master bedroom with a walk out onto the patio.

When it gets warmer a really nice patio to relax with a glass of wine looking out on a secluded backyard.

BARRIE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 24 CUMMING DRIVE, BARRIE

This week we go south-west of the city for the Property of the Week.  This home with its beautiful landscaped backyard will make you think you live in your own small private oasis. Situated in the Prestigious Princeton Woods which is very much a family neighbourhood.

Inside the house is very well finished and maintained. With its open-plan design, it is a great place to entertain guests. Or just cozy up with your loved ones in front of the gas fire.

You will enjoy the large kitchen with its granite tops and stainless appliances.  A kitchen to prepare a gourmet meal or to host a party, all good parties end up in the kitchen so need a large one.

The master bedroom with its en-suite with a feature my wife would like two sinks, well, to be honest, she would prefer to have her own bathroom.  The bedroom also has a walkout to the backyard which with a coffee would be a great way to start the day.

Depending on your mood you could go for a sauna or take a dip in the hot tub, nice choice to have, or just jump in the pool.

With a large basement, it is a great place for game nights or a place for the kids to have noisy fun.

You do know we like to chose homes where you can a relaxing outdoor space to enjoy peace and quiet with a glass of wine or a cocktail.  Well, this backyard has the added bonus that there are numerous places where you could do this.  It is one of the best-landscaped backyards we have seen.

PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 1179 CAMP BAY DRIVE, Algonquin Highlands

This week as I don’t think too many people will be out there looking for a house.  We thought we would stick to the fantasy theme.  Instead of looking in Barrie as we always do, and should.  We thought let’s have look at the ultimate isolation cottages.  I have always wanted a log cabin that is why I chose this one, I am stretching the point that this is a log cabin.  

There are a lot of logs in this cottage, but I know still stretching the point.  Your imagined oasis is here. Set on a 2+ acre point with mature evergreens and exceptional privacy with a lovingly crafted waterfront home made of massive hand-scribed logs.

Southern exposure provides beautiful sun all-day, you could have a coffee in hand and look out the super large window to the lake, you could imagine you are all alone in the world with your family.

The adjoining Muskoka Room is a focal point spring, summer and fall, with a soaring stone Rumford fireplace to take the chill off in the evening.  Love the canoe in the room, and the cool seat in from of the fire.

With 4 bedrooms there is plenty of rooms for visitors, sorry no visitors allowed for a wee while.

I would “call dibbs” on this bedroom, love it!!!

Would it be a good place for a glass of wine to relax and imagine you are in isolation, yes but remember if in isolation you need to buy a lot of bottles!
