Rarely Available this close to the Village! Tranquil and peaceful are just two of many words to describe this 2.5+ acre property. As you drive up the winding circular drive, this jumbo home sits on a hill in a quiet country-like neighborhood where the families stay for a long time. For the "toy" enthusiast in you, there is also garage space for 5+ cars. The home has beautiful views from every room, has been well taken care of over the past 40 years, and is ready for your decorating ideas. The main floor boasts a large living room, a dining room for your everyday dining that leads to a 3-season sun-filled screened-in porch, and a large farmhouse-style kitchen with a 5-burner cooktop, a double wall oven/microwave combination, a breakfast bar peninsula overlooking the family room with dark knotty pine and terracotta tiled floor, windows on 2 sides to take in the serene and private views, and a set of oversized sliding glass doors to the private patio. The second floor has 4 good-sized bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and stunning sunset views from the primary bedroom. The farmhouse style continues in the recreation room with radiant heated floors which provides warmth and makes this space inviting and a place for reading a good book or watching some TV. The basement space is unfinished, has a 400-amp electric panel, a separate walk-in storage closet, and is perfect for additional storage or a future living space. This home is Eco-friendly too! The heating and hot water systems have been relocated to a separate outdoor insulated shed - a benefit if one has allergy sensitives. There is a whole-house fan that cools the home using less energy than an A/C unit plus there's a Generac brand whole-house generator - If the power should go out, you still have electricity throughout the entire home. Besides the 2-car attached garage, there is a separate 3+ detached garage that is heated, has a single and a double overhead door, fully insulated, a separate 100-amp electric service, a 220 outlet capable of supporting an electric car charger, energy efficient windows, four skylights that open, is structurally supported for heavy equipment, has 2 separate service door entryways, an industrial sized variable speed ceiling fan, a cupola with an exhaust fan system and a loft with ample storage too! This home is truly a private oasis to enjoy! The home is in good condition but is being sold "as-is". Sellers have plans to share for converting the attached 2-car garage into additional living space. Walk to school and just minutes to the Barrington Village area, the Metra train station, restaurants, and shopping. Property taxes do NOT include any exemptions - they will be lower with a homeowner's exemption. With being in an unincorporated area of Barrington, the possibilities are endless - plenty of room to play, grow a garden, add an inground or above-ground swimming pool, enjoy bonfires, keep honey bees or raise egg-laying chickens. Make this home a "must-see" on your next home tour.
