South Barrington Waterfront Homes
South Barrington is home to 45 lakes with The Lake of The Coves and South Lakes of The Coves offering waterfront homes around an 85 acre lake. Braymore Hills in Inverness is another subdivision with a substantially sized lake. Scattered throughout the area there are many smaller lakes offering waterfront homes.
Most South Barrington neighborhoods are managed by home owner associations. With many homes having a water view, you might find outdoor swimming pools are not permitted. Eastings Mere is an example of this.
What are looking for in your Barrington waterfront home? Do you want a boat dock, or the ability to use a non motorized boat on the lake? Do you want to swim, fish, watch the wildlife and birds, or are you just looking for glorious views year round with no-one looking back at you?
