After 18 painstaking months of restoration Bob and Pam now have every reason to show off their large house in the middle of Barrie. Plumbing apart, they did just about all the work themselves, combining original features with their own creative input.....

.... Pam is an artist and her lovely designs are found throughout. The house, built in 1911, was designed in the ‘great Georgian’ style: brick, ivy, big windows and symmetrical proportions, a satisfying aesthetic combo which entranced the Richmonds from the moment they saw it. The ‘For Sale’ sign was just an added bonus! The house is near the road, and mere minutes to Barrie’s beautiful waterfront and all the restaurants and shops thereabouts. Yet the house is entirely peaceful inside, and at the rear even backs onto a wood. The blue ‘Williamsburg’ bedroom is named after one of the Richmonds’ favourite towns and is replete with designs from Virginia. The larger ‘Lafayette’ room has an unusual hunter green paint scheme. Bob the Doubter didn’t originally believe it would work, but it does, and in spades. Trimmed in white, it has a four-poster bed and another beautiful design by Pam on the fire-guard. There’s a TV room upstairs with myriad films, but you’ll enjoy chatting with Bob and Pam in the light-filled sitting room if you are feeling sociable.
