Barrington Hills real estate is the place to look for equestrian homes if you want the best choice for properties that have acreage and are zoned for horses. The majority of lots in Barrington Hills real estate are of a minimum 5 acres which provides the zoning needed. It should be noted that Barrington Hills is a residential community, not a business community. It’s not necessarily going to be the place to start a husbandry business. Barrington Hills real estate does have some property zoned agricultural which allows for this. MLS listings are not going to be the place to look for a definitive answer.
Many sellers are not even aware of what they have or do not have, as Realtors in Barrington Hills we go by what the seller tells us. My best suggestion is always to contact the Village of Barrington Hills to see if a property will allow you to do what you want.
Barrington Hills Real Estate – Country Suburban Home on 2 Acres.
As owners of Barrington Hills real estate, if you own horses you can board them on site, train them on site, train the horse’s rider, pasture them etc. The point to note here is you must be the imediate family resident at the property. You cannot be a trainer or other member of family residing elsewhere. The goal of Barrington Hills is for families that own horses to be able to reside here in this residential area with their horses, but not for it to become one big commercial horse industry. We do have some true horse farms for breeding, husbandry, training, they are typically the very large lots.
Barrington Hills real estate offers plenty of properties that have horse facilities like barns, stables, fenced paddocks. This is usually because the current or previous owners have had horses. There’s also a wide choice of property that has the zoning for horses but no facilities, likely because the property has never had horses. If you are buying with horses in mind you’ll have to decide whether to buy a ready to go property or consider adding your own stable etc.

It all depends on what you need, what your budget is and whether you need zoning for horses or not.
