Living in this location is a lifestyle you can’t put a price on. Kids walk to the best schools and Mom and Dad can walk to the train for work. Hough Street Elementary School is not only the best school but also houses the districts gifted program. Besides location this house features an unusually large lot, space for the kids to play and the dog to get plenty of exercise. Wind down and relax in front of the fire on the flagstone patio nestled in the backyard near the hydrangeas OR entertain on the expansive multi-tiered deck and watch the sunset in the west. This farmhouse is cozy, inviting and boasts architectural details known by the era such as high ceilings, deep moldings, crown moldings, art glass, stained glass window, hardwood floors throughout. The lower family room/rec room is perfect for your family’s game night or movie time. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space but if you desire to do an addition on this already lovely home there is room to do so. The 2.5 car garage was built in the last several years and features plenty of room for storage. Spancrete flooring was used to create an extra large 18×10 lower level storage space. This home is priced fairly and aggressively for this location. SO HURRY, BECAUSE IT WONT LAST! South Grove Ave is a highly sought after street in the village known for it’s historic beauty and proximity to Barrington’s vibrant downtown area.
