One of Barrington Hills' last great historic estate properties, this home provides a rare opportunity for the buyer seeking their family's own personal Camelot. A spectacular retreat combining natural beauty, meticulously preserved treasures of the past and modern amenities, this property is truly a legacy to be passed onto ensuing generations. Owned and occupied by the current family in residence for 55 years, the property combines three historic estate homes dating back to 1699, 1720 and 1805 that were reassembled as one in 1922 as the main house to Dorville Dairy Farms. Resting on 40+ acres of rolling wooded, beautifully gardened and luxuriously groomed open grass spaces with private lake, pool and pool house, the home provides equal use for serenity and play. The home and its surrounding acreage provide an idyllic retreat from the outside world, while still situated just minutes from town, schools and highways. Upon approach to this country home from the rolling hills of Brinker Road, you will pass by 800 feet of split rail fence lined by pristine woods and meadows of pastures leading to a private 1/8th mile meticulously landscaped driveway. The home's showcase is the elegant family room featuring the original wood burning fireplace as the centerpiece. Authentic and original New England white pine (patina) paneling, wide plank floors, original wood doors and beams grace the interior through the warm glow of leaded glass windows.The living room is adorned with patina white pine paneling and rustic wide plank flooring. The bright formal dining room with fireplace (one of 5 in the home) overlooks the sprawling backyard and lake and is flanked by an open window breakfast room and a charming and spacious sunroom. The open country-style, fully-equipped kitchen is inspired with a complement of modern and traditional conveniences including an open flame hooded grill and ample space for in-kitchen dining. The home's six large bedrooms on the second floor, many with ensuite or attached baths, are connected by a long walnut-floored hallway with beautiful views through plenty of colonial-style paned windows. Cozy open dormers second as private reading nooks. Rich wood paneling envelops the home's office, featuring its own wood burning fireplace.The home's lower level features a large recreation room with gorgeous custom wet bar and plenty of space for a pool table, as well as a full bath and ample storage space. In addition, a first-floor guest suite provides the perfect arrangement for extended family living with a bedroom, full bath, kitchenette and private living area accessible through a separate entrance. When nature beckons life to the outdoors, a 75-foot hourglass pool with a full- equipped pool house and gazebo provide space for memorable gatherings and entertainment. The enclosed and fully illuminated tennis court has been home to many community and club tournaments. Equestrians will appreciate the lush pasture areas with immediate access to miles of the Barrington Hills bridle paths, while fishermen will appreciate the bountiful fishing of bass and bluegill in the stream fed lake, perfect for ice skating during winter months. An oversized 3-car garage and a large carpentry and mechanical shop are equipped for every hobby. This rare and unique property evokes the rich heritage of great family estates of history and is truly one-of-a-kind!
