We work hard to cover local Barrington happenings at 365Barrington.com and there’s nothing more “local” than the place where we hang our hats. To capture the essence of “home” here in Barrington, starting this month we’ll be publishing regular posts about any and all things related to homes, gardens and real estate in zip code 60010. We hope it’ll be a dialogue, of sorts, so we’re calling this new series “House Talk”.
This weekend’s Academy Awards are the inspiration for our first “House Talk” topic. Imagine watching next year’s Oscars on a giant screen in YOUR OWN HOME THEATER!!! There is one property on the market in Barrington today that boasts the very best of at-home movie watching environments.
This 4 bed, 4.2 bath, 5,425 square foot property is red-carpet worthy, inside and out. The circular drive will greet your guests in dramatic fashion and your own Scarlett O’Hara will love taking the stage in this home’s grand foyer with a sweeping scene-stealer staircase.
You might be tempted to watch the Oscars from the comfort of your own Master Bedroom if this home is yours next year. The nine foot tray ceiling, four sets of floor-to-ceiling casement windows and fireplace with marble hearth would make a dramatic backdrop for any movie scene.
And you might as well wear your finest Oscar attire as you descend down the proverbial red carpet into the lower level of this gorgeous french-chateau inspired property. That’s where your own home-theater awaits, complete with a 120 inch media screen and Epson Home Cinema Elite High Def Theater System plus a Polk Audio System with four speakers. Wh0’s craving popcorn?
After the movie, why not move the party to the adjacent lower level sitting area where you can chat about the costumes and cinematography by the fireplace or in the game room over drinks poured at your very own wet bar?
We’d love to show you more photos of this masterpiece home, but we don’t want to give away the entire plot!
Come and see for yourself during our Oscar Worthy Open House Event from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow, February 23, at 150 Braymore Court in Barrington.
