This Barrie 360 feature is presented with The Peggy Hill Team

Open the iron gate, pull into the grand circular flagstone driveway, and arrive home to stunning 161 Lightning Point Road, Balsam Lake! 

This impressive custom home is situated on 102 feet of western exposure waterfront, with year-round access and unprecedented views of Balsam Lake. Shoreline restoration and protection will allow you to enjoy the finest of sandy beaches – it also means the waterfront is perfect for swimming and boating! The included boat and jet skis offer a combined approximate value of $100,000 and guarantee you’ll enjoy months of summertime fun.

Over a quarter of a million dollars have been spent on exceptional hardscaping and landscaping, both in the home’s front and back. The beautiful deck with glass railings is an incredibly relaxing place to unwind and soak up the mesmerizing views, while multiple patios offer additional comfortable places for relaxation and entertaining. Soak in the hot tub, sit out on the impressive dock, or roast marshmallows around the firepit. 

The interior of this fully-finished showpiece home is bright and inviting. An entertainer’s dream kitchen awaits you, complete with gleaming granite countertops, high-end stainless-steel appliances, and a spectacular backsplash.

The marvellous great room is where you’ll find soaring 15-foot peaked ceilings, a stunning cloverleaf window with water views, and a cozy double-sided fireplace! 

At the end of an eventful day, retire to your lavish primary suite and unwind alongside the double-sided fireplace. Pour yourself an evening glass of wine and take it through the walk-out, where you can quietly sip it under a blanket of stars. No primary suite would be complete without an ensuite, and the one here surely does not disappoint! Boasting a Neptune tub and walk-in shower, this spa-like bathroom will leave you feeling refreshed and pampered every day. 

Downstairs, find an incredible recreation room, perfect for entertaining! A huge window lets plenty of natural light flood the space, while a gas fireplace casts a cozy evening ambiance. This room boasts a walk-out to one of several impressive outdoor patios!
