Custom Creation, Built-in Lake Views
81 Blake Street is a unique offering in east Barrie; custom designed & constructed by the owner, it features every notable feature the discerning buyer is searching for inside and out. It’s also nestled on a deep premium lot with elevated views of Barrie’s renowned Kempenfelt Bay which is also within easy walking distance.
The home itself boasts amazing curb appeal, the exterior accented by Owen Sound ledge rock. The exceptional architectural design elements begin at the front door, a full glass entry with a wave style configuration. The foyer is light and bright with a vaulted ceiling and window above.
The foyer flows directly into the open concept composition, designed to take advantage of the lake views. The dining area has a large picture window and a wall of custom built-in bookcases that also feature two Napoleon candlestick gas fireplace inserts. The living room is also a cozy space with a walkout to the elevated back deck where you can enjoy outdoor entertaining with Lake Simcoe as your back drop.
The spacious kitchen was refreshed in 2017 with a sleek, contemporary white look accentuated with a pop of red colour. Organic quartz countertops run throughout with a waterfall ledge on the breakfast bar. The floors are heated for extra comfort while the home chef can also enjoy working with high end appliances including a 6-burner Wolf gas range and integrated panel fridge.
The main floor master suite is a tranquil retreat, finished with rich mahogany hardwood floors and a large walk-in closet. A large picture window overlooks the back yard and lake while another walkout opens to the deck. The 4-piece ensuite bath is reminiscent of a spa with heated tile floors, a modern floating vanity, and a large tile & glass walk-in shower with linear drain. The main floor is nicely finished off with a 2-piece powder room just off the kitchen and inside entry to the attached double garage.
A lighted hardwood staircase with glass rail leads to the upper level where you will find a wall of built-in storage at the top of the landing. There are two bedrooms on this level; the first one is a sweeping haven with mahogany hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling with an eye brow transom, and a walk-in closet. The 2nd bedroom is also generous in size with matching hardwood and a double closet. They share the main 4-piece bath which features a sumptuous soaker tub, a tile & glass shower, and a single vanity with a contemporary glass bowl sink. Also on this level is a good sized office/art space or possible 3rd bedroom with lots of natural light.
More finished space can be found on the walkout lower level. The main open area floor is heated concrete seeded with marbles. A fully equipped wet bar is perfect for entertaining while guests can be accommodated with an additional bedroom/office and a 3-piece bath. Laundry is never a chore in the spacious laundry room which also has extra storage and lots of folding space.
Outside, this prime property is full fenced and landscaped with mature trees. The elevated back deck has a glass rail for unobstructed views and is designed with waterproof pre-finished aluminum and cedar underneath. The garage features a non-slip epoxy floor and the concrete driveway is plumbed for heating.
81 Blake Street is located in a sought after Barrie area with easy access to shops, restaurants and waterfront parks. Thoughtfully designed with both function and aesthetics in mind, this home is an ideal offering for anyone who enjoys executive living with stunning views.
