Brinker Restoration

A Storied Barrington Hills Home Gets a Second Chance at Life

Kathryn (Kat) and Bill Linville had been living in Lincoln Park, a well-known Chicago neighborhood near Lake Michigan, when they decided to move out towards the suburbs. The two grew up in Indiana—Bill in Speedway, and Kat in Noblesville—and met on a Ball State semester abroad program at London University in England. They’ve been together ever since.

They were in the Barrington area looking for property, seeing the beautiful and modern dwellings, when one home made a lasting impression. Ironically, it wasn’t a ready-to-move-in option. The historic Andrew Dallstream home and land on Brinker Road was somewhat of a discouraging sight for a property. Built in 1930 and neglected since 2017 when the Dallstream family moved out, over-grown bushes and shrubs crowded the 90-year-old home’s exterior, and the layout of the home, and while a grand, 6,000 square foot home with a four-car garage, it would need to be significantly updated. For some, this property would be seen as a tear-down.

Great Expectations

They looked over the property two or three times and went through a lot of soul-searching before making their decision to buy it in August 2017. During construction, Kat and Bill rented an apartment in Hoffman Estates. They managed to finish the majority of the work and move in by Thanksgiving 2018.

They knew that the home was designed by Robert Work, the architect for Barrington Hills Country Club. Another buyer might decide to tear the home down. Yet Kat and Bill saw a country dream home for their retirement, and for the whole family. Kat could have her organic vegetable and flower garden. There could be a swimming pool, and treehouse for the youngsters. They would feel honored as stewards of the land’s virgin oak savanna. Their two grown sons and grandchildren would have a place to join them. Their imagination was a new foundation for this home. This would become the project of a lifetime and eventually, a dream come true.

Vintage

Plans for a new gated community in South Barrington got a preliminary approval from the village board Thursday night.

South Barrington-based Vintage Luxury Homes wants to build 65 homes on the south side of Palatine Road, east of Ridgeview Drive. The development would be called Sundance of South Barrington.

The houses would be from 3,000 square feet to 5,500 square feet and cost at least $1.3 million each, officials have said. Swimming pools, a fitness center, athletic courts and an area for outdoor events are planned, too, documents show.

Mayor Paula McCombie said the custom-built, farmhouse-style homes would create a unique-looking development in South Barrington.

“I’m excited about it,” she said. “I think it’ll be beautiful.”

A large home and horse barns on the 74-acre property now would be razed.

The village board also voted to rezone the property from single-family residential to a planned unit development.

SB Development

A developer wants to build a gated community called Sundance of South Barrington on the south side of Palatine Road.

A proposal for a new gated community with 65 homes in South Barrington will get another review by village officials Thursday night.

The plan commission will meet at 6 p.m. to consider a request to rezone the 74-acre property at 61 E. Palatine Road as a planned use development, among other aspects of the would-be developer’s proposal. It’s zoned for a single-family home now.

Afterward, the village board will hold a special meeting to consider annexing the land South Barrington and rezoning it. Both meetings are set for village hall, 30 S. Barrington Road.

A large home and horse barns are on the property now. They would be razed, officials have said.

South Barrington-based Vintage Luxury Homes wants to build the housing development. It would be called Sundance of South Barrington.

The houses would be between 3,000 square feet and 5,500 square feet and cost at least $1.3 million each, officials have said.

SB SpecThe proposed annexation of mostly undeveloped land on Palatine Road east of Barrington Road could pave the way for the construction of a new gated community in South Barrington.

But the deal hasn’t been inked yet. Village officials want more information from the would-be developers and the town’s plan commission.

South Barrington-based Vintage Luxury Homes wants to build the development on the south side of Palatine Road near Poplar Creek. That’s near the village’s northeast border between the Inverness Ridge subdivision, which is west of the site and actually is in Inverness, and the Cotswold Manor subdivision in South Barrington.

It would be called Sundance of South Barrington.

The 74-acre development would consist of 65 custom homes, according to a description of the project on the village’s website. The houses would be between 3,000 square feet and 5,500 square feet and cost at least $1.3 million each, Mayor Paula McCombie said.

Swimming pools, a fitness center, athletic courts and an area for outdoor events are planned, too, documents indicate.

A large house and horse barns that stand on the land now would be razed, McCombie said.

McCombie talked enthusiastically about the property’s bucolic setting, especially its rolling hills.

“It’s really gorgeous,” she said.

Pepsi

The Pepsi facility is located just west of the CUSD 220 Administration Center on Main Street, and you can just picture Ficke-Bradford and Collister-Lazzari opening their coin purses with this news.

PepsiCo is closing its Barrington research and development facility, laying off 78 employees and transferring the rest of the 212 workers to other locations, the company said Wednesday.

The New York-based food and beverage giant will begin the layoffs June 24 and complete them by the end of September, according to a notice filed with the state Monday.

The northwest suburban Barrington facility also conducted research and development for Quaker Oats products. About a third of the Barrington-based employees are leaving the company, including those who either declined relocation or didn’t get an offer, the company said.
