2022 HOLIDAY HOUSE TOUR
Local designers and green scape experts team up to decorate homes around Geneva to provide inspiration on ways to decorate your home for the holidays. Each designer also uses items available at local Geneva shops.
Built in 2020, this over 8500 square-foot, six-bedroom home overflows with craftsmanship, including detailed trims and moldings. The first home, on this property, was built almost 100 years ago by relatives of the Morton Salt Company. It has been said that some of the home’s landscaping was obtained through a surplus from the Morton Arboretum.
Nestled in a historic neighborhood and built in 1907, this plaqued home is often referred to as The Cannon Home. A marvelous Queen Anne, lovingly restored over many decades, by the current owners, who have lived there for almost 30 years. The cozy front porch is hugged with custom railings designed and made by the family.
Situated in a quiet neighborhood, amidst snowy trees, the Cabeens are the original owners of this 2006 home. The initial design was greatly modified by the couple to accommodate their lifestyle. Walking up to the front door, you enjoy joyful greenery. While the holiday spirit is overflowing outside, stories behind the splendid collections are overflowing inside.
In 1922, the Wilson Brothers, famed for both the volume and the high quality of their construction, built this American Foursquare brick design home. Wilson’s construction was heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright. Who better to decorate a 100-year-old home than a business celebrating 100 years, The Little Traveler. While the current family has lived here only six years, they are just the third family to enjoy this 3000 square-foot bungalow.
This 8500 square-foot, six bed, four and a half bath, modern farmhouse is the second home on this site and the Mehren family is fortunate to be the second generation living here. The homeowner’s grandparents, Vic and June Lencioni, had a home on the property for 50 years. Even though they were not ready to call Geneva home again, with the wonderful times remembered, they could not imagine someone else owning 611 North First Street.
