2 Fernwood Drive, Barrington Hills, IL 60010

If you're looking for something that isn't the typical cookie-cutter subdivision home, THIS IS IT! As you enter the driveway gate, you'll follow the winding and circular driveway, with a picturesque pond and waterfall in the center of the circle. This beautiful English Tudor estate, situated 5 wooded acres, adjacent to Spring Lake /Spring Creek Nature Preserve's miles of trails, is a nature lover's paradise. One of the highlights that makes this home truly unique, and highly desirable for multi-generational living, is the fact that it's like 2 separate homes in one. The main house wing and the fully functional in-law/guest house wing have separate entrances and living spaces. The exceptional architectural features carry seamlessly through both wings. Vaulted/cathedral ceilings, with fabulous views of the property, some hardwood flooring, arched entries, rustic ceiling beams, gorgeous stone fireplaces (all gas fireplaces), slate floors, and soap stone countertops. The kitchens both have islands and eating areas, a generous amount of cabinetry, Viking ranges and Bosch dishwashers. The main house wing has an expansive library with floor to ceiling built-in bookshelves that will delight the avid reader and book collector. A home office adjacent to the library offers a quiet space for work or study. You'll find a formal dining room, with a pocket door leading to the butler's pantry and kitchen. Take in the view from the stunning breakfast room with vaulted ceiling, surrounded by 3 walls of windows. The 2-level living/ family room with wet bar is spacious and ideal for entertaining. The upper level has 4 bedrooms, including the expansive primary bedroom suite that boasts sky-high ceiling with skylights, plentiful windows, and fireplace. The master bathroom is complete with an enclosed tub/steam room, sauna, separate shower, double sink and water closet. An adjacent large bonus room offers lots of natural light from windows, plus a utility sink. Currently used as a gym, this room was previously an art studio. The basement level, currently unfinished, with an outside entry, has tons of living and storage space to design a recreation room built to your specifications. The adjoining in-law/guest house wing, with its separate entrance, offers one-level living with full kitchen, eating area, living room with fireplace, 2 bedrooms, amazing all-seasons sunroom with gleaming hardwood floors, surrounded by windows providing fabulous views, a library/den with built-in shelves, full bath, powder room, and laundry room with full sized washer/dryer. 3+ car garage with lots of space and 23-foot ceiling! Newly built to high-end design specs is a really cute chicken coop. Great for those participating in this growing trend - farm fresh eggs! The hen house is heated, with a door that opens to a large sized screened pen. There's also a playhouse built on the property that kids love. The access to highly acclaimed, sought after, District 220 Barrington schools is another advantage this home provides! This neighborhood of only 8 homes, on a private road without throughway access, ensures privacy and enhances security. Must see to appreciate all this unique home has to offer! NOTE: CARPETING COLOR IN PHOTOS HAS BEEN CHANGED VIRTUALLY TO A NEUTRAL COLOR WHERE INDICATED.
