This minimalist estate on five acres in Barrington Hills offers nearly 10,000 square feet of elegant simplicity and understated glamour. With five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, first floor master suite, three fireplaces, gourmet kitchen, barn, and koi pond—nestled within an expansive yet private lot with mature trees—the possibilities for family life, outdoor pursuits, and entertaining are endless.
THE WOW FACTOR
The aesthetic of “less is more” is beautifully at play here, with a minimalist sensibility that maximizes natural light to bring the outside in—with fewer walls and no ornate woodwork or opulent interiors—to achieve harmony and the freedom to allow for the essence of living. Famed architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was known for his use of minimalism in his design as are many Japanese architects. The end result here offers the ability to create whatever country life you imagine in this idyllic enclave.
The barn can be converted to horse barn, workshop, or private studio. The property invites anything from meditation gardens to horse pastures or tennis courts. Make it your private retreat or the perfect home for entertaining.
This is a property for those who demand privacy, love to entertain, and can appreciate a unique, custom built home with spectacular views. Host a New Year’s soiree to ring in 2020 with a night to remember for your Barrington friends and family. Guests can mingle before roaring fireplaces or take the circular staircase down to the finished lower party level while caterers prepare delectable bites in the spacious gourmet cook’s kitchen. At midnight, gaze out at the star filled night sky while toasting to the New Year and a new decade in your perfect new home—the first of many wonderful nights to remember.

It will be tempting not to leave once you’ve arrived home through the private covered entrance that leads you through the expansive port-cochère and to the high-speed elevators that whisk you up to your own slice of heaven. Choose relaxation and pampering in the 1000M Spa (with meditation room and plunge pools); embark on your fitness journey in the state-of-the-art Fitness Room (with classes and personal training), open 27/7; or grab a book from the Library Lounge (offering a curated collection of classic Chicago literature) and surrounded by panoramic views from the Level 11 Terrace. Venture up to Level 72 for wine and dining experiences in the Winter Garden, Wine Room, Demonstration Kitchen, or the intimate Private Dining Room. Enjoy casual year-round gatherings around the fire pit, tucked into a verdant corner of The Gardens. During warmer months, take in the breathtaking views (complete with telescopes for celestial viewing) from the Sky Terrace; indulge in alfresco yoga; or take a serene swim in the aquamarine pool. Of course, with Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan at your doorstep, you’ll want to venture out and take advantage of all that Chicago has to offer from time to time.
