230 Kempenfelt Drive

Barrie ON, L4M 1C4


Here is your first chance in 39 years to own that home on that street with that view and that corner lot. Anyone who has driven down this renowned Barrie street, or walked the North Shore Trail adjacent to it, recognizes this landmark c. 1875 home. The property is conveniently located within an easy walk or bike ride of all the downtown amenities. The house itself is a testament to an era when things were made to last: in structure and in style it has staying power and the enchantment of a bygone age. Wide road frontages (217 ft), with waterfront across the road to the south and parkland across the road to the east, allow for unobstructed views from the wraparound verandah, the gazebo, or the many large windows. Entering through the front door, you will be charmed in the way you had hoped to be as you view a ruby-glass transom, hardwood floors, 12-inch baseboards, period fireplaces, new paint in calm, fresh colours and, through the backband-trimmed windows, maple trees, lilac bushes, landscaped gardens and Kempenfelt Bay. Radiant hot water heat (new boiler 2008) keeps the house cozy and the mechanicals are good here. The appealing kitchen has a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, lots of solid wood cabinetry, an attached pantry room, and a sunroom at the side entrance. The 4 beds upstairs have close- to-9-ft ceilings and pine floors; the master has a connecting nursery or playroom. Above the entranceway is the Lunenburg Bump where you can curl up and watch the boats go by.
