Description

Quintessential Barrington Hills Estate in the private enclave of Oak Brae. Set on 8.7 Acres with a pond (stocked), the current owners have enjoyed the charm of an old fashioned setting where their 5700 plus square foot colonial rests. It holds many large rooms that are big on style, built-ins, and character. The 3 car garage, potting shed and Walden Pond with it's hand-built cabin overlooking it are irreplaceable. 100 year old wood was harvested from the family farm to use for the cabin. Much of the interior has been freshly painted. Each bedroom is unique and appealing. The Primary Bedroom on the first floor, (currently used as a library) offers an ensuite bathroom. There is a Primary Bedroom on the second floor as well. Bedrooms 4 & 5 are tandem bedrooms. There are old fashioned front and back staircases. Feel free to ask Cathy about expanding closets on the first or second floor in these rooms, as there are options. Oak Brae is a neighborhood of 6 homes off of Donlea Road. The home is being sold "as is". Enjoy book club in the gazebo while you listen to nature. The home and land are very warm and inviting. Someday, you too can hold a wedding here, much like the movie Father of the Bride.
