An extraordinary Barrington Hills wooded estate is available to purchase. A winding driveway leads you to this 5 bedroom, 5.1 bath home at 12 Ridgecroft Lane in Barrington Hills. It meanders to a stone and stucco English manor with an archway over the driveway, pool, tennis court, and renovated interior. Walnut stained hardwood floors gleam throughout the first floor, where at its center is a volume foyer with curved staircase, skylights, and softly rounded windows.
A limestone fireplace in the living room is accented by crown molding framed with a huge window overlooking wooded grounds. The formal dining room has an antique bronze and Tuscan-inspired chandelier, chair rail, and French entry door to the kitchen. A two-story family room boasts of an oversized fireplace with marble and fluted millwork surround accenting a limestone hearth. Skylights and doors to the expansive deck flood this room with natural light. A wall of windows captures stunning views of the estate.
The kitchen will surely be a favorite with its large island, glazed maple cabinetry, granite counters, stone finish backsplash, and top-grade appliances. A sunny breakfast room is complete with it’s own entrance to the deck. A cherry butler’s pantry with glass-front cabinetry, wine racks, granite counter, copper sink with retro faucet make this home ripe for entertaining.
Off of the kitchen, there is a covered grilling area on the patio.
The first floor master suite has French doors, plantation shutters, closet with furniture-grade organizers, and sitting room. A Mexican limestone floor in a master bath worthy of five stars and comes complete with air-jet tub, walk-in linen closet, double vanity with glazed antique white cabinetry, oversized shower with corner seat, and a custom vanity table. Four equally luxe rooms round out the second floor.
Beautiful form meets function in the home’s smart laundry room with cubbies, shelves, and utility sink. The service bathroom is perfect for swimmers. A finished lower level has recreation area with a workout studio with sauna, bookcases, and full bath. Endless storage is also a plus.
The outdoor options are endless with the flagstone path that leads to an inground pool, or the updated landscape that is punctuated with a tennis court and shelter.
