Barker Group Expands to the Suburbs

Northwest Suburban Real Estate

Barker Group is growing, and so is our service area -- to the suburbs we go! Many of our city clients are either moving from or to the suburbs, so this extension of our business, naturally was the next step. Our current suburban portfolio is focused on the northwest suburbs, but we are quickly expanding elsewhere as well. 

Three of our featured suburban listings include:

205 Red Oak Road, Northbrook

A custom build by the original owners in 2005, this expansive 6500 square foot property sits on almost half an acre of beautiful land. Enter the home through a gracious stone and granite foyer, and be wowed by the two-story great room and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The second floor is also the perfect layout with a large master suite, two bedrooms adjoined by a jack-and-jill bathroom, and an additional bedroom plus ensuite bathroom. The fully finished basement is perfect for entertaining or relaxing, equipped with a wet bar, dance floor, recreation room with fireplace, game room, sauna, and bedroom plus ensuite bathroom. 

1816 Westleigh Dr, Glenview

This large end unit Heatherfield Townhouse features a first floor master suite and unobstructed views from three sides--only one shared wall! The kitchen was expanded from the original build, and features stainless steel appliances, plus an eat-in peninsula and space for a table. Opening up to the kitchen is the great room that truly has it all--beautiful tray ceiling, hardwood floors, gas fireplace and sliding door out to the private patio.

The second floor also has ample space with a large family room, lofted office space, second bedroom and full bathroom. The third bedroom is currently opened, but a wall could be built easily and inexpensively. Plus, the huge unfinished basement is loaded with options. 

8814 W Luna Ave, Morton Grove

This solid brick Chicago-style mini mansion truly has it all! With over 4200 square feet of living space, this gut renovation features all new electrical and plumbing throughout the home. Walk in through the gracious foyer with built-ins, and into the living room featuring the original hardwood floors and gorgeous coffered ceiling with painted trim detailing. The kitchen features all new stainless steel appliances and also opens up to a second bonus family room. 

The lower level of this property is also incredible, featuring a second kitchen and dining area, two additional bedroom and a large recreation room--tons of space!  The exterior of this home is just as incredible as the interior with a large back deck, paved patio, and fire pit. A 2.5 car garage affords plenty of space for storage.
