This week we dive into Barrie’s thriving Condo market, and to one of the most exciting properties along the lakeshore.

In addition to being in one of the city’s most desirable locations (just steps from the beach) this Condo offers one of the best views of the lake a homeowner could ask for. It’s difficult to imagine a more inviting perspective to enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine over.

However, let’s take a look around this generously spacious home before we return to the stunning views. The condo is in a beautiful and modern complex, with all the expected mod-cons. You’ll get a sense of the flow and the open concept as soon as you walk in.

Off to the kitchen, where you’ll find handsome granite top counters and pristine appliances. The open concept means that prepping a meal keeps you in the loop with the rest of the family and guests, as well as in range of the big windows. Concerned about storage? Extended height cabinetry takes care of that.

A breakfast bar provides simplicity for a weekend brunch order or a pizza night. And for family meals or festive settings, a handsome dining room is at your disposal.

More space and big windows await you among the two bedrooms. The master suite presents a tray ceiling, more of those massive windows, a walk in closet, and a bonus double closet. Yet the real appeal here might be the 6 piece Ensuite, complete with soaking tub, walk in shower and a bidet. Uniquely suited for rest and replenishment after even the longest day.

Did we mention the pool? Together with an onsite fitness gym, the building caters to your fitness and recreation needs, as well as being just a elevator ride away.

Not only is this a modern and spacious home, it’s well situated in Barrie. With quick access to the 400, public transit and downtown shopping and restaurants, this condo is a find.

We can honestly say when this house is described as a “One of a kind”, we wholeheartedly agree.  The European style home makes it very distinctive almost stately, you could feel like the lord of the manor.  Being from a small European country I personally love it.

The home screams elegance throughout all the rooms. This custom home has over 4,300 square feet of living space.

Centre of the foyer is an impressive staircase leading up to the large bedrooms.

We love this bedroom’s fireplace, in a cold winters nights you would be lovely and cosy.

The main floor also consists of a formal dining room, a living room, a kitchen/dinette area and a sunroom where you can enjoy a freshly cooked meal.


The curved steps lead you down to the open lower level where you find a wet bar (not that we were influenced by the bar) and a large versatile space for entertaining or enjoying time with the family.

From the sunroom, you step onto the tiled veranda where you have a great view of the large backyard and offers picturesque views of Kempenfelt Bay.

With this view and the veranda, I would say this is a beautiful place to enjoy a glass of wine and remember you have that wet bar if it is too cold.
