The Barrington area is located approximately 35 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. This is an affluent suburb and is best known for its stately homes. It also features Illinois’ largest historic district.
Originally known as a farming community, Barrington is a unique place that has a small-town heritage feel. Its bustling downtown area is full of activities, though, so there’s no chance to feel bored when you live here.
The cost of living in Barrington is quite a bit higher than in other areas in Illinois and the Chicago area. It’s higher than the national average, too.
Most properties in this area are quite large, and the median home value in Barrington is a whopping $747,370. The farther away you move from downtown, though, the more affordable the properties become.
Barrington is an appealing area for those who commute both by car and by train. It’s home to a Metra train station that provides a direct route to downtown Chicago. This station offers both daily and long-term parking, making it an even more affordable option for residents who don’t want to drive to the city every day.
Barrington is located close to Highway 53 and Route 59, which also provides a connection to the Jane Addams Tollway. It’s about 25 miles away from O’Hare International Airport, too, making air travel a breeze.
Students who reside in Barrington are served by Barrington Community Unit School District 220. This district is home to eight elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, Barrington High School.
Nearly all of the schools in District 200 have received high scores on GreatSchools. Barrington High School is particularly impressive.
With its national recognition, it’s considered to be one of the best in the state. It’s also known for its dual-language programs, appreciation for innovation, and its students’ strong test scores.
The Barrington community is a very social one, and it hosts a wide range of events during the warmer months of the year. From outdoor music festivals to beer gardens and farmer’s markets, there’s something for everyone to do.
Barrington Park District also maintains several parks, as well as walking trails and bike paths, so this is a great place to live if you love to spend time in nature.
This historic part of Chicago is known for its impressive architecture, too. It’s home to a variety of stunning historical homes, including the Octagon House, which is an eight-sided residential home that was built all the way back in 1860. Barrington is also home to the Catlow Theater, which is one of the only single-screen theaters left in the whole area.
