Welcome Home to this Barrington Classic! Built in 1861, just a few years after the establishment of the village, this is one of Barrington's first residences. The owners have spared no expense over the years updating and modernizing the house while keeping the original charm! Located on over five acres with majestic oak trees, the property backs up to conservation land protected from future development. Nature lovers will fall in love. Walk up to the house and the first thing you will notice is the large porch that wraps around three sides of the house and has five doors into the house. To keep with the classic charm of the house, the windows with original glass were well cared for and still grace the main level looking out onto the porch. All other windows throughout the house have been updated within the past ten years. The nine-foot ceilings with large crown molding, original tall baseboards, and oak flooring will take your breath away! Enjoy relaxing by the fire in your spacious Family Room with floor to ceiling built-in book shelves! Attached Den with wood paneling is great for either an office, library, kids' play room or perhaps a fifth bedroom. First floor full bath and laundry room! If you enjoy cooking, then you will love this Kitchen keeping with the classic Farm Kitchen, but updated in 2009! Slate flooring, custom cabinets, farm sink, soap stone counters, heated floors, separate Island/Breakfast Bar, and eating area this Kitchen is a must see! The Dining Room has glass pocket doors that lead to the Parlor! The second level is complete with a large Master Bedroom with walk in closet, and updated Master Bathroom including heated floors! The large secondary bedroom (previously two rooms) was combined to give more space to growing families. An additional bath on the second floor with a clawfoot bathtub mirrors the charm of the farmhouse. The Third Floor has two more bedrooms with large fourth full bathroom! The views from these rooms make you feel as if you are living in the trees. The Basement will certainly surprise with nine-foot ceilings, unique for the era, along with a climate controlled interior room which is an added bonus, great for storage or other uses! From the Kitchen, Bathrooms, Windows, Furnace, AC and Flooring all has been updated within the past ten years!
