Nestled on 40 picturesque acres in the heart of Barrington Hills lies one of the area's most magnificent historic estate properties. This exquisite home presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those seeking to create their own personal Camelot. Combining natural beauty, meticulously preserved treasures of the past, and modern amenities, this property is a legacy to be passed down for generations to come. Originally three separate estate homes dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, the property was reassembled in 1922 as the main house of Dorville Dairy Farms. Owned and occupied by the same family for over 55 years, the home is a stunning retreat that seamlessly blends historic charm with contemporary luxury. As you approach the property down the 1/8th mile private driveway, you'll be captivated by the beauty of the split rail fence, pristine woods, and open pastures. The interior of the home is equally breathtaking, with original wood doors, beams, and wide plank floors throughout. The living room and family room both feature original wood-burning fireplaces and authentic New England white pine paneling that exudes warmth and charm. The dining room overlooks the sprawling backyard and lake and is perfect for entertaining, with an adjacent breakfast room and sunroom providing additional gathering spaces. The home's six large bedrooms on the second floor are connected by a long hallway with beautiful views through colonial-style paned windows. The office is richly appointed with wood paneling and another wood-burning fireplace, making it the perfect spot for quiet contemplation or working from home. The lower level of the home offers a large recreation room with a custom wet bar and ample space for a pool table, as well as a full bath and plenty of storage space. There's also a first-floor guest suite with its own entrance, providing ideal accommodations for extended family or guests. The outdoor spaces of the home are equally impressive, with a 75-foot hourglass pool, a fully-equipped pool house, and a gazebo providing ample space for outdoor gatherings and entertaining. The enclosed and illuminated tennis court has hosted many community and club tournaments, while equestrians will appreciate the lush pastures and immediate access to miles of Barrington Hills bridle paths. The lake on the property is teeming with bass and bluegill, providing excellent fishing and ice skating opportunities during the winter months. Other highlights of the property include an oversized 3-car garage, a carpentry and mechanical shop, and ample space for any hobby or interest. This rare and unique property is a stunning reminder of the great family estates of history and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create your own legacy.
