BARRIE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 288 CODRINGTON STREET, BARRIE

If you are looking for an executive bungalow take a look at this beauty.  The home is located in the north of the city not far from Johnson’s Beach.  As you know we like to find homes with some unusual features, well keep reading.

Spacious living area to have guests around and entertain.  This is a very well maintained home with a lot of extras.

A large kitchen to prepare gourmet meals with all stainless appliances.

Now I love movies so I would love to have this cinema in my house, mind the kids would still commandeer it for their PlayStation, but this is not the hidden secret.

It has a beautiful inground swimming pool with a covered area to get out of the sun if you need to.

Or if you need to have a hot sauna to ease out the aches and pains of the day, the house has it.

This what we thought was really neat, if you are like me and have teenagers they would love this.

After all that you will definitely need to relax at the end of the day and have a nice glass of wine, or as we heat up maybe an ice-cold beer.

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: 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!

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!
