Glen Warren - Shanty Bay - Lake Simcoe - Ontario - Canada

Glen Warren
Shanty Bay,
Lake Simcoe

Ontario,Canada
Breathtaking secluded lakeside country estate, minutes from Barrie, one hours drive from Toronto.

"Glen Warren" was designed by the architect Oluf Albrechtsen for J.J. Warren, one of Canada's leading financiers, and his wife Annie Edith Parker Warren, as their summer home. Located four miles north of Barrie, conveniently within the Toronto nexus, the property remains in the family. Although the gardens have been reduced in size, the fundamental character of the grounds remain.

   

Low fieldstone walls mark off several garden areas and these are enhanced by beautiful, mature perennial flower beds. The extensive well groomed lawns are set off by the wide variety of specimen trees and flowering shrubs.
To enjoy the spectacular views of the gardens, lake and woods, there are multiple seating areas throughout the property
       
 

    The waterfront area has a dock, extensions and a floating raft as well as two anchor systems, one of which is designed to secure vessels up to 60 feet.
 

    Inside, the elegance of the Cape Cod house has been maintained with redone kitchen and bathrooms. Two of the baths have tiled stall showers, and two baths have deep clawfoot soaker tubs. The house is air conditioned and winterized and has been extensively renovated and redecorated.
 

    The living room and dining room have floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplaces and the study also has a fieldstone fireplace. The two downstairs bedrooms each have bathrooms ensuite, and the two large upstairs bedrooms and the single bedroom, have a separate bath. The large screened porch and the fieldstone patio overlooking the gardens and the lake, provide a most comfortable ambience.
 

    The spacious screened front porch looks out over the main lawn and down to the lake. This area has storm windows installed during the winter, making it possible to enjoy the light and beauty of a cold winter day, in the comfort of a warm room.
Two sets of french doors lead out from the living room to the large screen porch.
 

    The 13' x 18' fieldstone patio is partially covered enabling those who want to do so to enjoy the sun, while those who prefer the shade may enjoy the refreshing summer breezes.
