Spectacular Dennis Blair-Designed “Lake House in the Forest” in North Barrington!

471 East Oxford Road – North Barrington

One of the most spacious and daring designs by Frank Lloyd Wright protege Dennis Blair, this modern architectural gem offers gorgeous views over Honey Lake in the desirable Biltmore subdivision. Built in 1966, the home was added onto twice since, each time in line with Blair’s vision. One addition features an “endless pool”, hot tub, exercise room & game room. Recent updates include a high-end, expanded kitchen with beautiful island, quarter-sawn oak cabinetry, stainless appliances by Thermador, Dacor, GE Monogram and more, two remodeled full baths featuring zebra wood vanities, a restored powder room, restored dining room built-in cabinetry and wonderful exterior improvements including a koi pond with waterfall, beautiful stone patio with fire pit, professional landscaping and so much more. Every aspect of this home delights with architectural nuances, views of nature and space for all your living and entertaining needs – plus highly-rated Barrington schools. Truly spectacular!
