As you drive through the gated, tree-lined entrance at 21 Brinker Road in Barrington Hills, you are transported to another place and time. On this breathtaking English manor compound sits a grand 11,000 square foot waterfront estate that invites sophisticated country living at its finest.
The home features six fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, a large country kitchen with its own fireplace, wood-paneled library, desirable first floor master suite, walk-out lower level with theater room, exercise and steam rooms, beautiful cherry bar, spacious wine cellar, and a second kitchen. Intricate details abound, including handcrafted plaster moldings and spectacular millwork, in this four bedroom, six and a half bath home.
But this is only the beginning. The bucolic private grounds with grand shade trees invite summer entertaining—for both intimate family gatherings and large parties. Lounge and frolic around the in-ground pool, stroll the English-inspired gardens, pick fresh vegetables, and enjoy summer afternoons and evenings under the outdoor dining pergola where you impress guests with homemade pizza in the outdoor pizza oven. On quieter days, meditate and relax on one of the multiple terraces. A three-season sunroom with its own fireplace extends the opportunities for cozy gatherings around a roaring fire.
And, naturally, take advantage of all that the Barrington community has to offer, from award winning schools and abundant philanthropic opportunities to the charming downtown with access to Chicago via the Metra.
For larger families needing more bedrooms, or an in-law suite, plans are available for an additional multi bedroom/bathroom addition above the garage—and even outbuildings for a chicken coop, shop, or gardener’s shed.
