Celebrating 19 Years as Barrington’s Signature Magazine

March / April 2022 Issue

About This Issue

Country charm! Kat and Bill Linville, here with their Goldendoodle “Somy” purchased an estate that was built in the early 1900s and was owned by only one family before them. A grand and palatial property built when gentleman farmers beckoned to the hills of Barrington to get away from the city, the home needed a lot of love and imagination to be brought back to life. The result is a breathtaking place they call home. Photography by Jim Prisching.
