For today’s NoonDaily update, we’re going back to 1862 for a look inside a historic Queen Anne home built that year and currently for sale in the Village of Barrington. Back at that time, there were only 300 people living in what used to be called “Barrington Station”, an 80 acre area that is now known as the Village of Barrington.
Today, this jewel of Barrington’s yesteryear is located at 118 Raymond Avenue, just north of Lake Cook Road and just west of downtown Barrington. But, back in the day, the home was originally situated at Hough and Main Streets before it was relocated to its present site in 1929. How’s that for some interesting Barrington real estate trivia! One of the best features of this home is that it’s within walking distance to schools and the shops, restaurants and Catlow Theater in downtown Barrington.
My business partner Suzanne Luby and I have this 3-bedroom property listed for sale and it’s priced at $379,900. Suzanne and I are both Realtors with The Luby Group and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Barrington. I asked Suzanne to share her top five things to LOVE about the home and here’s how she breaks it down…
