Barrington Hills is an affluent community located about an hour away from the city of Chicago. Nestled among winding roads, trees, and rolling hills, residents experience the best of both country and suburban living. Large properties ranging from one to 10+ acres give residents more freedom to live how they want – raising their own animals, growing flower and vegetable gardens, keeping horses – and much more.
With over 4,722 acres of forest preserve in Barrington Hills alone, residents have many opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors — biking, running, hiking, riding horse trails and more. This outdoor lifestyle is combined with aspects of modern day suburban living as well with top-notch schools, country clubs, and nearby shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities.
Barrington Hills has long been known for “equestrian living”. The rolling terrain provides a serene canvas for Chicago’s “horse country.” In addition to the existence of equestrian farms and backyard barns, the Village offers beautiful trails, several clubs and sporting events for horse enthusiasts. Barrington Hills is also a short drive to Arlington Park Racetrack, Chicago’s premier horse racing facility. The identification of the area with horses even carries over to the names Broncos and Colts for school team mascots.
The community is also known for its strong commitment to philanthropy and giving back, boasting some of the top non-profit groups and organizations in the Chicagoland area.
