Renowned architect Jerome Cerny designed and built this 1929 estate, Chaumont. Situated atop a hill on nearly 10 private acres in the heart of Barrington Hills, this home is reminiscent of Downton Abbey with its scenic views and buzzers throughout the sprawling home to call for household staff. Features include a long, formal drive flanked by graceful trees, a motor court encircling a stately fountain, plus a vintage Speakeasy front door.
This home was built with forever in mind with features such as Terrazzo flooring, concrete stairs, solid doors, and four second floor ensuite bedrooms plus a first floor guest suite.
The magnificent grounds have a darling caretaker’s cottage with its own three-car garage, a large 4-stall barn with spacious turnouts, and storage for hay, a regulation dressage arena, pool, and tennis court. This home is ideal for the sophisticated buyer willing to celebrate past achievements while hoping to inspire future ones.
The home is available for sale from Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.
