Caption:

The second project by Bovis Homes in Barrie is underway with houses in the $56,490 to $71,300 price range. The new development is called Bayview Woods and is on Highway 11 (Yonge St.) at the north end of Barrie, quite close to Kempenfelt Bay. The model shown above is typical of several split-level designs, but there are also bungalows and two-storey models. Floor areas range up to 1,835 square feet which is large by present standards. All houses have either a two-car or oversize one-car garage.
