Situated in Lake Barrington, Tallgrass offers luxury homes in a spacious, picturesque community boasting views of the Grassy Lake Forest Preserve. With 61 homesites to offer, starting at one-acre and above, homebuyers will discover the ultimate community for high-end tranquil living.

Visitors will get their first look at Tallgrass during the Sept. 17 grand opening celebration. Festivities will begin at 10 a.m. with a breakfast of homemade pastries and locally fresh-roasted coffee from Pepper Park Coffee. Enjoy tasty cuisine and enter for a chance to win baseball tickets, a 55" flat screen TV, spa services or other exciting prizes! Guests then can indulge in authentic Italian cuisine from Ciao Baby! from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and enjoy decadent desserts from Euro American Ambrosia Patisserie from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

"Tallgrass at Lake Barrington is a special addition to our Illinois communities because it brings back a sense of simple living," said Bob Meyn, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison's Chicago division. "Residents will feel right at home in this brand new gated community surrounded by breathtaking scenery that can truly stop you in your tracks."

The nearby open green spaces are perfect for play while quick access to Northwest Highway (SR 14) and multiple Metra train stations offer a quick commute to work.

"Homeowners can either spend the day strolling through charming downtown Barrington and enjoy fine dining and shopping, or round up family and friends for a fun bike ride along one of more than half a dozen preserves nearby," Meyn said.

Priced from the low $700,000s, Tallgrass offers six distinct floor plans with traditional two-story designs and first-floor owner's suites, and walkout basements available. Homes will stretch up to 4,500 square feet, offering up to six bedrooms, 4.5 baths and three-car garages.

The highly regarded Barrington School District 220 will serve the community, allowing students to attend schools consistently ranked in the state's top five percent of academically excelling schools, including North Barrington Elementary School, Barrington Prairie Middle School and Barrington High School.
