Lake Barrington Shores real estate is open to all buyers, young to old. It often gets considered as an active adult community because of it’s facilities. It is not a dedicated over 55 community. The demographics are about as wide as anywhere else, from first time buyers, through families to retirees. Buyers are attracted to the lifestyle here and residents stay for the same reason. It’s a gated complex with secure access. The school buses come inside to collect children.
