Located in Lake County, Illinois, approximately 35 miles northwest of Chicago, the Village of North Barrington offers a low-density residential environment highlighted by lakes, ravines, woodlands and rolling topography.
"The Barrington area encompasses approximately 95 square miles of unique glacial landscape and is located within the Fox River ecosystem. North Barrington is approximately 35 miles northwest of Chicago."
The first settlers arrived in the Barrington area in the 1830s. Since that time, residents have been attracted to the area by its appealing natural resources, and its accessibility to the larger metropolitan area.
The village operates four park areas and two country clubs are in the community as well. Most home sites are within Cuba Township, and therefore in Barrington School District 220. The eastern portion of North Barrington lies within Ela Township and is served by Lake Zurich School District 95.
