Welcome home! This exceptional Georgian is an historic hometown treasure located in the heart of Barrington on a tree-lined street & easily walkable to the Village's downtown with its upscale restaurants, shopping, Starbucks, Catlow movie theater, Metra train to Chicago, and A+ Barrington schools! The original house was built in 1894 and its architecture came to life in 2005 when it was fully refurbished and expanded by its current owner. Chicago architect John Eifler's design harmonizes the exterior of Chicago common brick, cut limestone, cedar trim, tapper sawn shingles, half-round copper gutters and true divided light Marvin windows. The builder's utilization of "green" building systems makes this home remarkably efficient. Main level features a welcoming foyer, two home offices, family room & dining room.
