Custom Built Luxury
Enjoy your own wooded haven on the outskirts of Barrie at 4 Forest Hill Drive in Oro-Medonte. This custom designed executive bungalow was built for entertaining with soaring ceilings, lots of natural light, and well thought out upgrades. The home is nestled on a premium estate lot in an exclusive enclave just minutes from city amenities.
The home itself is set well back from the street with stone accents and an interlock walkway. The grand double doors open to reveal the bright foyer that boasts a vaulted ceiling and skylight along with a double closet and ceramic tile floor.
The dramatic open concept design encompasses the living and dining areas into a spacious great room large enough to even fit a grand piano. Gleaming hardwood floors run throughout, and two skylights in the vaulted ceiling flood the room with natural light. The gas fireplace is flanked by two additional windows while a double garden door walkout leads to the back deck.
The dining area is also light and bright with a coffered ceiling, a large picture window that overlooks the trees out back, and recessed shelving tucked around the corner. The dining room is open to the recently renovated kitchen, keeping the home chef connected to the action. The hardwood floors continue into the kitchen while the white contemporary cabinets are nicely accented by the tile backsplash. There are great stainless steel appliances to work with including a gas cook top & built-in oven and you can stay online during meal time with the smart addition of USB outlets.
The bedrooms are separate from the main living space, including the tranquil master with hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, and a sliding door walkout to the back deck. The updated 4-piece ensuite boasts a separate tiled shower and sumptuous soaker tub along with convenient built-in storage. The other two bedrooms are both generous in size with hardwood floors, bright windows and ample closet space. They share the main 4-piece bath with in-shower lighting. The main floor is finished off with a laundry room and another foyer with access to the attached triple garage.
More family friendly space can be found on the finished lower level, including a versatile family room designed with entertaining high in mind. There is another gas fireplace in this room and a custom wet bar. Also on this level is another bedroom, an office space, and a 3-piece bath with in-floor heat for added comfort. There is also a separate entrance from the garage, making this entire level a great option for an in-law or guest suite.
Outside is your own private escape from the city on close to two acres. There is lots of room to add a pool, or you can take a nature walk through the trails that meander through the woods. There is a large back deck for outdoor entertaining and a natural gas hook up for BBQ time. You can store the yard gear in the attractive and functional separate storage shed or in the loft in the oversized attached triple garage. And for golfers, the 27 holes of Shanty Bay Golf Club is just minutes away.
4 Forest Hill Drive has been lovingly maintained and updated with countless features including new shingles in 2016, security lighting, and a built-in audio system in the main floor living areas. It is located on a quiet cul-de-sac among other executive homes with easy access to Highway 11 and all the amenities of Barrie including Georgian College and RVH. This turn-key executive delight is ready for a family that enjoys a luxury rural lifestyle.
