Monday’s the day we announce the latest members of the Barrington Online Marketplace here at 365Barrington.com.  It’s a new resource devoted to sharing timeless information about great businesses, events, people, organizations and real estate here in Barrington.  We had so many visits last week to the page about THIS HOME, we thought we’d follow up with the story behind another remarkable 5-acre property currently for sale in Barrington Hills.  This one is an 8,000 square foot home with a beautifully hardscaped pool, private pond and orchard overlooking a sea of rolling green pastures at 8 Moate Lane.

If Martha Stewart Magazine ever wants to depict outdoor entertaining in a bucolic yet sophisticated Midwest suburban setting, the natural beauty of this property’s backdrop could easily do the trick.  You’ll find wildlife and opportunities to entertain outdoors at every turn.  And, today, the homeowners are sharing some of their favorite memories from the two decades they’ve lived at 8 Moate Lane.

More on this home, the list price and an interview with the seller in just a minute, but first, here’s how Marketplace Monday works:

Now to that 5-acre, 8,000 square foot property at  8 Moate Lane in Barrington Hills.  The current owners purchased the home 20 years ago after falling in love with the landscape and the dream of daily encounters with deer, birds, horses and other wildlife living in their midst.

“The property backs to Hill ‘N Dale Farm, so Richard Duchossois is our neighbor.  There is nothing behind us but pasture and every single year we have horses back there, which is wonderful.”

If you’d like to see the property in person, we have an open house scheduled for this Sunday, August 19th, from 1 to 4 p.m. and all are welcome!
