Spectacular views abound from every room of this Italian inspired home perched on a beautiful five acre hillside site overlooking woods and a marsh brimming with wildlife. The owner, an architect, designed and built Collina "little hill" after returning from over a decade of living and working in Rome. The design inspiration came from traveling through the Italian Hilltowns of Tuscany and is reflected by the uplit vaulted brick rooms and arches reminiscent of a stroll through a centuries old Tuscan town. The abundance of natural light highlights the interesting architectural design elements and the flow of the rooms throughout the home. This home is also designed for today's family. The walk out level is set up as a fully independent apartment for generational living, family members or guests. It features a full kitchen, dining room, bedroom, laundry room, bathroom and living room with a fireplace. The elevated office off the main level is large enough to easily accommodate two family members working from home. An attached heated workshop with outside access is perfect for the hobbyist or for additional storage. This home offers a multitude of outdoor entertaining areas all with stunning views of the property. An expansive awning covered deck (can be screened in) off the kitchen. A roof terrace above the 3 car garage. A roof deck off the primary bathroom. Two patios complete the outdoor living spaces. While this property offers the ultimate in privacy and beauty it is located within a 5 minute drive from all downtown Barrington has to offer: coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, local shopping and the Metra Station. The foundations of the attached workshop and the 3 car garage are designed to support two story additions using the the existing foundations saving time and money if the next owner would like to expand the home. The design details of the home and how the views from the home are incorporated into the hillside site make this a must see property. ***Low Taxes*** for Barrington Hills.
