When people think of condos, they often think of Toronto. However, Barrie, a beautiful city just an hour north of Toronto, has its own condo market with breath taking views of Kempenfelt Bay, downtown and have relaxing views of environmentally protected land.

However, it’s more than just about the view. There’s a lifestyle that comes with living in a condo.  Most buildings have common elements shared by building residents; indoor/outdoor swimming pool, fitness area, party & games rooms, to name a few.  Rather than paying into a gym membership, you can work out in the comfort of your own building.  Underground or covered parking is available in most buildings, which is fantastic during the harsh winter months that Barrie has.  Think of a condo as almost like living in a five-star hotel night after night, without the five-star hotel price tag!

For the working person, the majority of Barrie condos offer easy access to GO Transit if you work out of the city, and are placed close to downtown amenities – and Barrie has more of them than you might think. Top-notch restaurants, shopping, nightclubs, cafes and various other places of entertainment.  If you’re more the stay-at-home type, think of possibilities of dining on your balcony while enjoying a beautiful evening view. The condo lifestyle is about convenience and having everything at your finger tips.

The final thing that I’d like to mention is that when you live in a condo you don’t have the hassle of regular property maintenance.  You just turn your key and go!
