Description

This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from May 03, 2021
This superb custom home was designed & built by the current owner! Time & care was taken to make this a truly unique property full of one of a kind features. Open concept home includes a walkout lower level overlooking a spectacular location. There are only 13 homes in this subdivision making it very quiet & tranquil. This property is at the end of a cul-de-sac sitting on a hill that gently slopes down toward the water beyond. The southern exposure of the back of the home overlooks the protected wetlands & gives the home light & warmth throughout the day. Over 150 tons of natural limestone was brought in to create terraced gardens. Stone steps descend past the terraced gardens to a large 850sf patio w/fire pit & natural stone capped curved sitting wall creating a pavilion like atmosphere to take in the beautiful views of the wooded wildlife refuge bordering the lot. Off the patio is a much desired screened porch for late nights & an evening breeze. Outdoor lighting illuminates the home's exterior in the evening hours. The care & quality of the exterior are carried through to the interior starting w/quality construction. Insulation was a high priority during construction w/R-45 attic insulation, R-38 wall insulation & 2 inch Styrofoam board insulation on the foundation walls. Energy saving Thermopane Low-E glass maintenance free Andersen vinyl clad windows are throughout the home & the south facing windows have a special added tint for extra UV protection. This energy efficient design & build results in incredibly low heating & cooling costs! When entering the foyer through the full length leaded glass front door, you know that this home has been meticulously maintained & cared for. The foyer w/Italian Travertine tile floor, opens to the great room w/gorgeous views. This room was built w/entertaining in mind. It's huge at over 46ft long w/vaulted ceilings peaking at 21ft high! The center of this room is dominated by a 2 story fireplace w/stone mantel. Beyond is the Solarium. This is a delightful room w/southern exposure & windows on 3 sides. Full of sunlight & warmth, the Italian porcelain floor & brick wall absorb heat & provide passive solar gain in winter. Balconies flank this room on both sides & the 10ft vaulted ceiling adds to the openness & appeal to this special space. The island kitchen has everything you want w/stainless steel appliances, double oven, under cabinet lighting, granite counters & eating area. The main level bedroom is complete w/attached bathroom making it versatile as an in-law suite, guest room or office. The lower level is a fun space w/full bar, wood-burning fireplace, 2nd kitchen, full bath w/steam shower, pool table area & 12ft slider to the patio. Italian porcelain tile runs throughout this main area making it worry free. This area also serves as a theater when the privacy shutters are closed & the 7 built-in speakers & sub-woofer come alive. The large workroom also located here is a handyman's/hobbyist's dream. Numerous 15 & 20 amp outlets are provided to accommodate power tools in this workspace. All this is accessed through a pair of 5ft wide French doors providing easy & convenient access for large projects. On the 2nd floor there is a large multipurpose room that could be used for an art studio, office, hobby room, exercise room or extra bedroom. The 46ft long cantilevered balcony overlooks the great room & serves as a gallery/library. The master suite boasts 13ft ceilings, commissioned stained glass transom, laundry chute & large spa like master bath. The bath has a whirlpool tub, separate shower w/frameless glass door, high flow controls, 2 separate sink vanities, water closet, & 2 walk-in closets w/built-ins. There 3rd bedroom is currently being used as a large bonus room w/vaulted ceiling. All this plus an exceptionally low property tax bill of $10,241.60 for 2019, without Senior exception it would have been $10,804.96.

    "The Village of Barrington is a beautiful and friendly community that is responsibly run by a fiscally aware Village President and Board. The Village is a wonderful place to raise children, and the Barrington School District is amazing! You can walk to the train from most homes, and be in Chicago in an hour. Quality shopping for just about anything you could need is within a 15 minute drive. Great restaurants in town, and an excellent variety. One of the top places to raise a family in Illinois! I know, we did it!"

    "Since moving here from chicago 5 years ago, this is is great for people who want to slow down a bit, Many bike/nature trails close, 5-star recreation and sports facilities, and is starting to cater to the 30-somethings. If your looking for an area close to relaxation, and great for going d0wntown to the city, (metra's best stop on the pacific line), a place near downtown Barrington is paerfect."
