Glen Ellyn, DuPage County, Illinois
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.

I started the booking process with William very early on, and am glad to have done so as getting in touch with him can be a bit tricky (he travels often between another home in Ireland). We rented it for a group of family members traveling to the area for my wedding for a little over a week. The house...

We gathered at The Davis House for a family reunion and to celebrate my husband’s 80 birthday. My daughter, husband and two small children were very comfortable in the bedroom that had a queen size bed and a pull-out couch.

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 was impressed with the place and we were all comfortable.
