Featuring 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, this custom home is located on a .26-acre lot in the heart of the village of Barrington. There is even a bedroom en-suite above the garage with a separate staircase and sixth bedroom en-suite in the basement, making it ideal for multigenerational living.
THE WOW FACTOR
If you love to entertain at home, this house has it all. Boasting 10-foot ceilings, kitchen, living, and dining areas flow beautifully through the first floor. The party continues in the large finished basement with wet bar, 9-foot ceilings, and a glossy stained concrete floor with heat tubing. Dramatic lighting, exposed beams, and a three-story walnut and maple staircase set the scene for glamour and luxury living.
Can you say “best of both worlds?” This country gem’s location in the heart of the village brings a city vibe rare in the Barringtons. An easy walk to the Metra, schools, shopping, and Forest Preserve trails, anything you could want is right out your front door. Imagine putting on your winter coat and walking through the snowflakes to Village of Barrington’s annual Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting Ceremony (December 7) and hopping on the free Holiday Trolley at Cook/Station streets (which travels between the Ice House Mall, shops on Lageschulte, the Foundry, and Barrington’s White House). What a way to make those holidays bright.
