Barrington homes with swimming pools are somewhat of a love hate scenario.
The climate here in Barrington IL has 4 very defined seasons. Winter can be long – as can summer. We swing from sub freezing temps in winter to 90’s in summer. Spring and Autumn are much shorter. Summer can seem long with temperatures in the high 80’s and low 90’s for a good 3 months. Autumn arrives and September gives a pleasant break from the heat but as early as late October snowflakes suddenly pop into the skies. The reality is that swimming pools will only be used during June, July, August and possible late May and early September. So at best Barrington homes with swimming pools are used for 4 months.
Of course this does not apply if the pool is indoors but most are outdoors.
