East Barrie Delight
96 Queen Street brings together the charm of east Barrie with modern upgrades to elevate family living. This home has been lovingly maintained and updated with a potential in-law/guest suite on the lower level and your own private back yard oasis in one of Barrie’s sought after mature neighbourhoods.
The main living area is an open design with the perfect layout for family entertaining with rich hardwood floors. The kitchen boasts a large centre island with granite counter top and crescent shaped breakfast bar. There is ample counter and cabinet space along with a tile backsplash and two bright corner windows. The California knockdown finish on the ceiling continues into the living room, a light-filled space with a large window to the front that floods the room with natural light.
The rebuilt master suite is truly from the pages of a home magazine, designed with tranquility and comfort in mind. A corner gas fireplace warms the space while a large bay window frames a perfect view of the treed back yard. A double garden door walkout takes you to the cedar deck, ideal for a morning coffee or evening drink. The renovated 3-piece ensuite bath rivals anything found in a spa with heated tile floors for comfort and a contemporary floating vanity with tile backsplash. The oversized tiled walk-in shower also has heated floors and multiple body jets and a rain shower head for the ultimate in relaxation.
There are two more bedrooms on this level, both with bright windows and ample closet space. They share the main 4-piece bath with new flooring, toilet & stylish sink. Also on the main level is inside access to the attached double garage which is deep enough to park two vehicles.
From the garage you can also separately access the lower level which features a good sized family room with kitchenette/wet bar along with two bedrooms and two baths. This versatile layout offers up great opportunity for guests to stay or for potential rental income.
Outside is a private haven with a large deep yard not found in newer Barrie subdivisions. Mature trees provide shade & privacy while the elegant landscaping includes two small water features and a fish pond. The curb appeal at the front includes a stone walkway and stone work around the maple tree. The yard equipment can all be stored in the back garden shed which is equipped with power and water.
96 Queen Street is located in an excellent east Barrie neighbourhood, walking distance to schools and parks and just minutes away from Barrie’s vibrant waterfront. This home features great updates like new shingles in 2015 and upgraded wiring and plumbing throughout. With plenty of style, just move in and enjoy this renovated delight.
