Several inches of snow fell in our area over the weekend which prompted me to get out and enjoy the scenery. While I was out, I snapped some photos of beautiful blue and gray custom homes in Naperville, IL.
Naperville used to be a smaller suburb of Chicago until about 35 years ago when it experienced rapid growth. It’s a popular town with good schools and lots of shopping and restaurants in the downtown area.
Smaller homes in existing neighborhoods have been expanded or replaced by larger custom homes.
Such care has been taken when renovating the older homes in Naperville that it’s hard to tell if it’s a new custom home or a rehab.
One thing I noticed is a lot of modern farmhouse style homes are being constructed. Most are white but this dark gray beauty caught my eye.
Be still my heart! This house stopped me in my tracks. Such a rich blue color with magnificent Victorian details like arched windows and decorative trim. Winter’s snow intensifies the siding color.
Light blue also looks great in the snow. Many of the custom homes in Naperville still have their Christmas decorations up. I could go back to this Chicago suburb many times to capture photos of amazing homes. One street is just as pretty as another.
A gorgeous teal Victorian charmer has just a few touches of red and a bit of gingerbread trim on the porch.
Naperville boasts that it’s home to the best public library system in the country. It’s also the fifth largest city in Illinois, but it has a small-town feel. It’s located along the Dupage River and has a beautiful riverwalk that I’ve visited several times.
You’ll find smaller charming homes in town, too. Love this little blue cottage with its peaked roof and arched door.
