Spring is here...it's going to be beautiful as you drive up alongside the front bubbling pond! Imagine yourself with a perimeter that encompasses tranquility, privacy, and seclusion. Three decks invite you to the views of wildlife, lush landscaping, trees, and a 9-foot pond that make this a unique, just under 5-acre property in North Barrington in the heart of Lake County. The Oaksbury subdivision is close knit; one where community gathers and watches out for each other. All this, and in the award-winning Barrington School District 220 along with proximity to major shopping, restaurants, Barrington Metra Line and expressways. This 8,098 square foot home offers 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths over three levels of endless, flexible living space that invite you to spread out to relax, to entertain, or to work/study from home. The main living area boasts beautiful views and easy living with hardwood floors throughout, a private office/library with built-ins, an in-law/guest suite with its own full bath, a formal living room and dining room. A centrally located living area with a soaring fireplace and cathedral ceilings will be your hub. A freshly painted kitchen caters to the entertaining chef with ample custom cabinets, a butler's pantry, and granite countertops. The second level railing looks over the main living space and leads on one end into a large primary room that includes dual closets in the ensuite bath, a private deck, and a seating corner. The other side showcases a dual vanity bathroom leading into each of the two additional bedrooms. A huge, over 2,000 square foot walkout lower level includes a 5th bedroom and provides plenty of additional exercise/play/entertaining space with a game area, 2 saunas (wet/dry), all overlooking acreage, its pond, concrete patio, and an outdoor playhouse. This community and this property welcome you 'home'.
