212 Kimberly Road – North Barrington
Arguably one of Don Tosi’s most dynamic and purely modern designs, 212 Kimberly Road in North Barrington’s ultra-desirable Biltmore subdivision is a remarkable MCM home on 7 acres that gently slope back towards the adjacent Honey Lake. Tosi was mentored and encouraged by renowned architect Bruce Goff who often stamped Tosi’s plans (including those for 212 Kimberly). Built in 1949, the home features many wonderful details such as the angled stacked stone wing wall corners, a lofty, wood clad ceiling in the living room with clerestory windows, floor to ceiling glass in many rooms, cedar paneling in various spaces, exposed stone walls, beautiful angled & paneled roof overhangs, built-in furniture & shelving and much more. Originally designed as a 3-bedroom house, the home was modified & expanded by Tosi in the 1960s and now includes 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths in addition to the kitchen, dining room, living room and den (plus utility and laundry). A storage basement was added underneath the addition, and there’s a lovely screened porch on the south side of the home to enjoy looking out over the vast acreage surrounding the house. At 2,415 square feet, the home is a comfortable scale and very easy to live in. Outside you’ll find a wonderland of natural beauty, with acres of lawn, mature trees, a private forest and part of a pond at the west end of the property, adjacent to Honey Lake. Seasonal lake views could be year-round based on removal of certain trees and other foliage. Served by the highly-rated Barrington school district, 212 Kimberly Road is in a fantastic location with easy access to both Barrington and Lake Zurich and 10 minutes from the Barrington Metra station. Don’t miss this opportunity to make a very special mid-century modern home yours for many years to come! Available for the first time since 1958, the home is being sold “as-is” by the family of the owners.
