Holiday Rental House
The Davis Victorian Farm house is an 1892 landmark home. It is located in beautiful Glen Ellyn, known for its quaint down town and Vintage Homes. We are also minutes away from Wheaton, home of Wheaton College. The Davis House is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac. Set back from Davis Terrace, its front garden adds to the grandeur of this beautiful home. Steps from Babcock Grove Park as well as Lake Ellyn Park. This wonderful home was just featured in a movie which was completely shot on location! The home has a front porch, deck and a woodland patio for relaxing and enjoying this amazing nature sanctuary. An incredible place for outdoor entertaining. Central to all of the wonderful out door spaces is the fountain courtyard. The soothing sound of the flowing water can be appreciated al...The Davis Victorian Farm house is an 1892 landmark home.

Central to all of the wonderful out door spaces is the fountain courtyard. The soothing sound of the flowing water can be appreciated all most every where near and inside the house. The large European kitchen has a LaCanche triple oven stove, one of many European imports. The large French Farm table seats 6. There is a library directly off of the kitchen. A grand piano graces the music room which has French doors overlooking the large deck. Most of the lighting has been imported from Europe. The turret of the house enables you to see all four directions from the parlor or upstairs Master bedroom sitting room. The master suite also has an ensuite bath with large walk in rain shower and separate Ultra Bath Whirlpool. The south facing windows fill this room with lots of natural light. The home has many original features and has all hardwood floors on the main level. In the family room you will find the fireplace and large Plasma TV with surround sound. The home is nestled amongst large trees and beautiful gardens...truly a wonderful place to call home while visiting Historic Glen Ellyn and neighboring towns as well as Chicago and all that it has to offerMore

My mom died peacefully and we needed a place to gather our family, grieve, eat, and just be together. It was truly last minute, and the owner, Will, made it happen (he wasn't planning on getting the house ready and he was traveling too). Everyone...More
