BARRIE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 9 FORESTVIEW PLACE, BARRIE

This week’s we go to the north of the city to a quiet cul-de-sac, it has a secret we really like, well we really like two things about this house.  Have a look through the pictures and at the end of the blog, there is a video for more information.

First, we see the living room, it a bright room with a large bay window with a gas fireplace, very cozy for relaxing with the family.

Prepare family meals or dinner parties in the well-equipped kitchen, with a built-in dining area.

The large en-suite master bedroom comes with his and hers closets, that should save on some disputes.

Now, this is one of the features we love, a four-season sunroom where you sit and read, enjoy the landscaped garden or just relax with a coffee.

This is the second thing we love about the house, and this is what you can see from the sunroom.  A beautifully landscaped back garden to relax in with a glass of wine, the owners have done a great job of the garden.

BARRIE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 151 SHANTY BAY ROAD, BARRIE

Would you like to have a house on the waterfront?  Well, a rare opportunity to live on the water in a much sought after East End of Barrie?  A custom-built main house, very close to Johnson’s Beach and minutes from downtown has come onto the market.

It is an open space concept house with great views of the lake, on a cold day with a coffee a great way to start the day looking over your own spectacular view.

It has a large open plan kitchen for just you and your family, or for larger gatherings.  Sit down at the dinner table and see the lake view from here as well, as you do from all principal rooms.

Large master bedroom, with that view again, we could wake up to that, makes waking up a lot easier.

Now we do like something unusual when we feature a house, well this one comes with its own separate cottage.  Great for visitors to give them their own space, or maybe for parents.  We thought this was a really neat feature, almost two for one, if smaller than the main house.

Well, not so small!!

Large back garden to enjoy summer, and we could imagine ourselves enjoying the view from the deck with a bottle of wine, to share of course!

With its own dock to dive into the lake or do a bit of fishing.

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: GO HOME BAY, GEORGIAN BAY

This week as it is Easter and we don’t think too many people are out there looking for a new house.  We decided we would look for another isolation home, it is a fantasy certainly for us, but if you are in the market for an island take a look.

Owning your own private island how cool would that be.   Take a tour around this turnkey island property in the heart of Go Home Bay, this 1.9-acre island offers a 3200 sq. ft. cottage with four connecting bedrooms and two bathrooms. All recently, meticulously designed by Paul Hughes.

The design is compact and simple, preserving the original 1935 cabin and accentuating the Georgian Bay experience; smooth rock, wind contorted pines, vast water, a huge, ever-changing horizon and the utterly breathtaking views.  If you love wood you will adore this room, and it comes with a great view.

Imagine waking up to this view in the morning. The master bedroom has a 3 –piece en-suite, additional closets and enjoys southern views.

Does it pass the wine test, you bet it does.  How cool would it be to sit out here with your favorite bottle of wine looking out at this view, wow!

BARRIE REAL ESTATE: Property of the Week: 14 Reynolds Road, Tiny

As we all know the restrictions we are under with us all staying at home and social distancing. This is having an impact on the real estate businesses in Barrie. As well for people who are looking for a house and those selling. In some cases, these people have already bought or sold a house and now are in limbo. Some of Barrie Realtors have come up with a solution; they are currently holding virtual “Open Houses”.

One of the businesses is The Faris Team, who are holding a virtual open house on this property. It is a beautiful house, but for this week we wanted to show the ingenious entrepreneurial spirit demonstrated by some of the companies in Barrie. Take a look at the new way of buying a house during this crisis. Take a look:
