Modern Victorian Luxury – Walk To The Waterfront
This spacious one of a kind property in the heart of Barrie could be yours.
Contemporary style and vintage charm come together seamlessly at 22 Wellington Street West. This stunning century home, on a 199’ deep lot, has been thoughtfully upgraded and updated to the highest standard while maintaining the unique original aspects of the home like deep 12” baseboards and natural wood casings. Located in Barrie’s sought after central waterfront district, this address is ideal for active families who will enjoy all the amenities available along Kempenfelt Bay’s renowned shoreline. Boating, biking, walking and running paths – you have it all at your doorstep.
The double front doors open to the vestibule style foyer and to the left a French door reveals the separate formal living room. This large space boasts original hardwood floors and 12’ ceilings framed with elegant crown moulding. A bay style window to the front floods the space with natural light. The original fireplace also adds to the charm. Beautiful glass pocket doors help separate the living room from the dining room which has matching hardwood floors & crown moulding.
The showpiece of the home is the completely renovated eat-in kitchen, a stunning and functional space sure to impress the home chef. Travertine stone floors run throughout. The cabinetry is nicely accented by the lustrous granite counters and cultured stone accent wall while the large centre island incorporates a breakfast bar and wine rack. A walkout takes you to a covered side porch, making outdoor meals quick and easy. Just off the kitchen is a 2-piece powder room where the travertine stone floors and cultured stone accents continue.
When meal time is over, retreat to the spacious and welcoming great room. This new large addition to the original home features a separate heating/cooling system, hardwood floors, and a custom concrete Napoleon gas fireplace. Crown moulding wraps around the ceiling, and a double garden door walkout leads to the large back deck. Enjoy this space every day.
The natural wood staircase takes you to the upper level where you will find a tranquil master suite, also part of the two-storey addition. This sumptuous retreat is wrapped in windows with lovely views of the private back yard and features a connected dressing area with double closet. The spa-like 4-piece ensuite bath has a double vanity, marble finishes, and a large Schluter-engineered glass & tile shower.
If you work from home, you can do it in style from your private office, also connected to the master suite. The large built-in desk has granite and stone finishes along with under cabinet lighting. On warm days, you can take your work outside to the private covered elevated porch. This space also has a convenient built-in laundry closet.
While the main master suite is an updated delight, you may enjoy the 2nd master which has all the vintage elements of the original home including original hardwood floors, deep baseboards and natural trim, along with a lovely bay style/sitting area at the front. The 3-piece ensuite has been updated with tile floors, a single vanity, and a tile & glass shower and you can enjoy morning coffee or evening drink from the private elevated front deck. There is a 3rd bedroom on this level, also generous in size with hardwood floors and ample closet space along with a 4-piece main bath.
Outside, this rare 199’ deep lot, in the heart of Barrie’s waterfront district, has ample opportunity for a pool or expansive gardens. The private fenced yard has been immaculately kept and the large back deck features additional privacy screening.
22 Wellington Street West is the perfect home for those who enjoy everything that waterfront living has to offer. You can put down the keys and easily head to Barrie’s pristine shoreline. A home of this character and location does not come on the market often. Downtown restaurants and entertainment are also close at hand. With a stylish blend of old and new, this stunning home has plenty to offer your family in one of Barrie’s sought after mature neighbourhoods.
