  1. 1. Homes in Barrington Village & Community Information /barrington-village-homes/ What makes homes in Barringt on village different from the other villages? First there is a bigger variety in property types. Second the homes are situated on smaller lots. It’s rare to find an acre property in the center of the village. Third, many homes in Barrington village are within walking distance of the local stores, library, cafes and restaurants. You’re near to roads for commuting, and the Metra train station. You’ll find plenty of parks, tree lined streets, and many subdivisions make the most of the available green space. We’ve got lakes and ponds here too. Barrington Village is still very much a country suburban setting. Homes in Barrington Village – Price Range & Elementary Schools You can also search homes for sale by every Barrington school.

Selling Homes in Barrington Village More About Barringt on Ilinois Located in Cook and Lake County Illinois, Barringt on is an affluent suburban village. The area features wetlands, forest preserves, parks, and horse trails in a country- suburban setting, located approximately 32 miles northwest of Chicago. Barrington covers one z ip code: 60010 (z ip code area boundary map) and is the 7th wealthiest z ip code in the nation among areas with a population of 20,000 or more. The village’s motto is “a great place to live, work, and play!” In the 1920s, due to the advancements in transportation, wealthy families from Chicago moved into the Barrington area and built family estate homes. The Village’s population growth slowed during the difficult times of the 1930s and 1940s, resuming in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s due to the suburbaniz ation in the Chicago area and the post–World War II baby boom. The Village will celebrate its (150th) anniversary in 2015. A series of events will be planned to commemorate Barrington’s milestone birthday. The Village is a non- home rule municipality which functions under the council- manager form of government, with a village President and a six- member board of trustees, all of whom are elected at large to staggered four- year terms. Barrington has the largest residential historic district in Illinois and is noted for its Victorian, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, and other popular late- 19th century forms of architecture. Among Barrington’s most notable buildings is the Octagon House, also known as the Hawley House, built around 1860 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Barrington Area Historical Society, located on Main Street in downtown Barrington, is dedicated to preserving the history and culture of the Barrington area.
