Own one of the only true, waterfront homes in Glen Ellyn. This former builder’s residence was designed as a Prairie Style Craftsman with every amenity thoughtfully executed; from custom cabinetry, stained glass, counters, fixtures, heated flooring and driveway. Step inside and you see that the living room, kitchen, master bedroom, screened porch, terrace and outdoor fireplace were all designed to display a magnificent view of Perry’s Pond, whose mineral spring water originally brought resort builders and vacationers to Glen Ellyn in 1890. The area is so special that Julia Roberts filmed a scene in her documentary “Old Friends” on the tastefully landscaped lawn. Despite being just a short distance to town, Lake Ellyn and Glenbard West High School, 751 Chidester sits next to dozens of forested acres which are a preferred refuge for wildlife including ducks, herons, deer, fish, turtles--and thousands of years ago––even Mastodons. (One found here in 1963 now resides at Wheaton College).
