A variety of home styles and exteriors creates an eclectic neighborhood in Naperville, IL. You’ll find a mix of new and historic homes in this quaint yet bustling town.
Last month when spring trees were in bloom, we took a stroll in one of Naperville’s residential neighborhoods just northwest of the downtown area. The streets feature a range of home styles, from old to brand new, and everything in between.
Naperville used to be a smaller Chicago suburb, but back in the 70’s and 80’s it experienced a major growth spurt. People are buying some of the older homes, tearing them down, and building new homes in their place.
As we were walking the streets, it was often hard to tell if a house was brand new, or simply renovated. Love the third story balcony on this gorgeous Victorian home.
If you’re a fan of turreted homes, Naperville has its fair share. It’s really a very pretty town for walking around and enjoying the architecture.
The eclectic neighborhood features a resurgence in Victorian style exteriors.
The newer homes have plenty of character however, lending appeal and interest to this charming, eclectic neighborhood.
And it seems a majority of the new homes embrace a tudor style with a mix of stone, brick, or stucco.
Whether you prefer Victorian, farmhouse, tudor, or historic clapboard, you’re sure to see a home style you love in this eclectic neighborhood on the near northwest side of Naperville.
Not all the homes in this charming area are large and expensive. You’ll find a good share of cozy cottages.
This adorable home with its scalloped blinds, dormers, and red door captured my heart. The scent from the blooming tree was intoxicating!
This red clapboard house is definitely one of the long-standing original homes in the neighborhood. I always love a red house and could be perfectly happy living here!
During our refreshing walk we enjoyed a few homes that feature Joanna Gaines American farmhouse appeal.
In addition to the beautiful architecture, the majority of yards are beautifully landscaped.
An uncluttered porch has cozy appeal. While I would love to knock on each and every door and ask for a tour, I have to be content using my imagination to picture the interiors. I suppose that mystery is part of the allure when taking strolls through charming areas such as Naperville.
If you’re ever in the Chicago area, I highly recommend visiting Naperville, a western suburb. You’ll find an array of awesome restaurants, plenty of walkways along the peaceful river, and a wide variety of residential architecture to enjoy.
