Property Description

Extraordinary 10.24 acres estate runs the length of the 16th and 17th holes of the Barrington Hills Country Club. The spacious 5 Bedroom / 4.1 Bathroom home was built in 1957 and designed by Herbert Banse, a noted architect and apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and was fondly named "Out of Bounds" due to its signature location. The gated entry and extended drive (over 1400 feet) takes you past the golf course, through a wooded wonderland, lush landscaping and a hilltop setting for this classic home. Inside you will find Old World detail, moldings, built-ins, beechwood paneling, oak flooring, walls of windows and patios showcasing the views overlooking the gardens, sweeping yard, and golf course. This garden home was designed to blend the indoor into the outdoor space and is perfect for entertaining and enjoying a lifestyle of outdoor activities, privacy and the appreciation of nature. The Foyer boasts a stone wall, slate flooring and a wall of windows overlooking the front of the property. The first floor offers Master Suite living, oversized Dining Room and a grand Living Room with floor to ceiling windows with a large stone fireplace and access to a 1,700 SF blue stone patio.
