This European Country estate in Barrington Hills, Illinois has just hit the market, and it can be yours for $18.755 million. Sitting proud on a little over 70-acres of manicured land is an 11-year old brick & stone manor with slate roof exuding luxury and class with every arch and angle. The property is known as the Hidden Ponds Estate and includes several, obviously, hidden ponds as well as large, peaceful lake.
The stories that this property holds are filled with music and laughter, with the aromas of feasts past and of the many working fireplaces and the full size English Pub, with wine cellar, in the walk-out lower level. Spanning 30,000 square feet, the manor features an palatial formal entrance with Brazilian hardwood flooring and oversized fireplace, a Gentleman’s library with a hidden panel leading to the expansive master suite, there’s also a restaurant-sized gourmet kitchen, and formal dining hall.
Hidden Ponds is your very own Ritz Carlton resort with a peaceful waterfall, a relaxing spa, and a pool for laps or play; a regulation-sized gymnasium, a commercial-grade work-out facility, a private massage room and even a custom dog bath in the rear entry/mud-room! Other amenities include a multi-car collector garage, elevator, ample room for a helipad, and if you’re looking for a little work you can resort the three over-grown golf greens and tee boxes!
