Hidden Ponds ($18,775,000) is a magnificent European Country Estate with several hidden ponds (hence the name) and a peaceful lake on seventy horse country acres in the heart of Barrington Hills. Built in 2004, this slate-roofed manor exudes luxury and class with every arch and angle. 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.
As you pass through the large arched, front doorway, you enter a Brazilian Hardwood Foyer with an oversized hearth which sweeps you into a two story great room with an unparalleled view of the well-stocked lake at the rear of the house.
The Gentleman’s Library is well suited for deep conversation over brandy and even has a hidden panel to the Master Suite. Through the robust kitchen is an imported Italian Solarium/Sun Room which is filled with oxygen rich plants which provides a warm and cozy escape.
All the amenities that suit the lifestyle indulging a multi-car collector garage, and elevator, ample room for a helipad and three over-grown golf greens and tee boxes which can easily be restored. 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.
This Grand Estate lacks nothing, and is the right home for the most savvy and discerning buyer.
