For a number of years, Roy West of Simonds, West and Blair and another Winnetka resident served as garden consultants for Ellen Stuart.

General:
In 1860, DeVillo and Ellen Hubbard Holt commissioned a house constructed in the "Italianate" style, made popular by the New York landscape designer Andrew Jackson Downing. Known as the "Homestead," the property was intended to be a summer house for the Holt family, however it became the family's permanent residence as they sought to escape the bustle of downtown Chicago. The Holt family owned the Homestead for a century. Siblings Ellen and George Holt probably inherited the property in 1903 after the passing of their mother. In 1960, Ellen transferred ownership of the estate to Lake Forest College. The college sold it to private owners in the mid-1970s. The property featured expansive gardens. Frank Calvert is credited with planting the gardens at Homestead. Landscape architect Annette Hoyt Flanders updated the garden's design; garden designer Louise Stone Hubbard worked on a restoration of the gardens in the 1930s. Persons associated with the garden include: Devillo and Ellen Holt (former owners, 1860-1903); Ellen and George Holt (former owners, 1903-1960), Lake Forest College (former owners, 1960-ca. 1975).
