Enjoy the charm and beauty of Geneva at Christmas at the annual Christmas House Tour sponsored by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce. Five homes, each with their own distinctive character, will open for self-guided tours on December 4 (11 am – 8 pm) and December 5 (11 am – 5 pm). Each home will shine in holiday adornments presented by local decorators and designers. Tickets include a holiday tea and are available for $30. Proceeds are used to decorate Geneva for the holiday season.
Home of Pat & Steve Burnham
This 1856 original cup and saucer home has only seen three owners. A second floor was added in 1906 and a family room in 1987, just looking at the home from the street, you begin to anticipate a creative and charming interior beyond the juniper colored door. Festively decorated by SG Geneva/ Scentimental Gardens (630.232.1303), All Chocolate Kitchen (630.232.2395) and Plandscape, Inc. (630.365.2558)
Home of the Mickelsen Family
Overlooking a quiet street, this impressive 7000-square-foot stone residence, pleasantly combines interior and exterior design elements that make the most of the views from any room in the home, including variations in the styles of floors and ceilings throughout. Festively decorated by Gatherings by Design (630.761.1964) and Plandscape, Inc. (630.365.2558)
The Okolita Family Home
Built in 2014, this 7000-square-foot extraordinary home was designed and built by Havlicek Builders. The high ceilings, magnificent windows, elegant wood floors, along with modern fixtures, create a truly livable space. Actually built around the idea for an indoor slide and a lower level basketball court, this home was conceived for family and fun. Festively decorated by Heinz Brothers Greenhouse Garden Center (630.377.6288)
The Thor Family Home
Situated in a pleasant neighborhood, a luminary-lit drive and landscaped lawn lead to a 1978 home overflowing with memories and unique decorating ideas – even the most seasoned designer will be certain to leave with ideas never dreamed of. Festively decorated by 610 Home (630.262.3770) and Plandscape, Inc. (630.365.2558)
The Warner Family Home
A 1925 Wilson Brothers cedar home. During renovation, careful attention was given updating this Dutch Colonial Revival while maintaining its original quality. The owners masterfully designed the home to complement the historic district, while meeting the specific lifestyle desires of their family.
