Elegance, Grandeur & Breathtaking Views


European-Inspired Waterview Home

 
The perfect home, in the perfect location. Just close enough to Barrie’s main patios-shops-and-culture thoroughfare for quick access but far enough for tranquility, this one-of-a-kind 5,000 square foot 4-ensuite bedroom 2005 custom home is less than a 4-minute walk to shopping and restaurants. With a sweeping view of Kempenfelt Bay, no expense was spared in construction, finishing, landscaping or craftsmanship.
 
Drive past and you’ll notice the 3-car driveway, double garage, gated entry, Spanish Clay tile roof and tasteful, low-maintenance landscaping. Cycle by on the Waterfront Trail and you’ll notice four walk-outs on three levels, each with a phalanx of windows and doors, the better to take in the view of Kempenfelt Bay. You’ll be struck by the privacy wall stonework and wrought iron gate, the cascading natural limestone terraced garden, and the degree of privacy that banks of tall evergreens afford.
 
Finishings include rare granites, mahogany woodwork, a spiral wood & filigree wrought iron staircase just off the foyer, ¾” walnut hardwood flooring and imported tile.
