Quaint Village Homes in Geneva, Illinois

Older homes with wrap around porches and architectural detail have a charm all their own. Normally when I post walking tours of neighborhoods I choose to share the historic homes. But today, hubby and I ventured to Mill Creek subdivision in Geneva, Illinois to bring you a sampling of newer “village homes” that have quaint appeal.

Tour of Village Homes in Geneva, IllinoisWhat I love about this neighborhood in Mill Creek is the nostalgic feel of the homes and the streets. This bungalow recalls the era of Sears kit homes with its large porch and low slung roof.

Tour of Village Homes in Geneva, Illinois in Mill CreekThe village homes of Mill Creek in Geneva are set close together, much like you see in the city. I think that’s part of what I find so appealing. As hubby and I walked around the streets, we felt like we were in a residential city area.
