15 Barrington Hills Road, Barrington Hills
Designed by Architect Francis E. “Red” Warner for one of his Michigan clients transferring to the Chicago suburbs, 15 Barrington Hills Road has all the hallmarks of a true Mid-Century Modern sprawling ranch but with much newer construction, offering the best of both worlds. Designed with both entertaining and comfortable private spaces in mind, Warner’s beautiful design offers its lucky owners and guests flowing, open spaces for living – including a centerpiece architectural brick fireplace feature under soaring, wood-clad ceilings – while also allowing for wonderful functionality in the private areas. The spectacular, recently remodeled Kitchen is the result of opening up the original Kitchen / Dining Room areas and now includes an amazing Butler’s Pantry (essentially a separate room in its own right) with private Day Office next door. The Master Suite features a separate office area / sitting room with built-ins in and a custom (moveable) desk, and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th bedrooms each feature built-in double wardrobes, built-in drawers and a built-in desk, all created by the carpenters who built the home in Warner’s signature style. The entire main level was improved with beautiful hardwood flooring, and many other updates now grace this fantastic Barrington Hills property. Downstairs, a comfortable English-level Family Room with 2nd fireplace and the 4th bedroom and 3rd full bath await – along with a divided, unfinished basement area currently used as a workout room, music room and for a vast amount of storage. Many spaces feature exposed Chicago common brick (from one of the last new production runs before it ceased to be made), and throughout the home are thoughtful architectural details that showcase Warner’s expertise and aesthetic, honed under the tutelage of renowned architect Alden B. Dow. Outside, enjoy the privacy of your own gated estate with its rolling landscape and outdoor spaces for relaxation or al fresco dining. Just minutes from all that downtown Barrington has to offer and in the highly rated Barrington school district, 15 Barrington Hills Road is the perfect place live a modern lifestyle with comfort, convenience, space, privacy, and most of all, that “Wow! Factor” that your guests will love and that you’ll enjoy every day.
