Home Tour in the Historic District of Naperville Illinois
It’s no secret I have a major crush on historic homes and walking the streets of old neighborhoods is one of my favorite past times. Recently my hubby and I traveled to nearby Naperville, Illinois and strolled the historic district. Following are some of my favorite homes in the area.
This red beauty wears two-toned trim on its wrap around porch. A bay window creates an angled wall for the front door while a lamp burns in the window.
A nicely landscaped front yard hugs this gracious Victorian lady.
The simple lines of this unassuming home in the historic district of Naperville tugs at my heartstrings. The subtle arch of the two-toned windows and simple landscaping is charming and down to earth.
Notice the curved window in the roof of this Victorian home and the floral-shaped window in the peak. The red roof is a nice complement to the gray-blue siding.
This purple historic home was my favorite on our walking tour of the historic district of Naperville, Illinois.
Arched windows, two-toned trim, double front doors, and tidy landscaping all come together to create curb appeal that’s beyond charming. We stood and gazed at this house for quite awhile.
As you turn the corner, you see the side porch of this beautiful home.
Naperville is home to North Central College, tucked in the middle of the historic district.
Another painted lady graces the historic streets of this thriving Chicago suburb.
A red door greats visitors to this classic farmhouse with a wrap around porch.
This large home wears several colors but the softness of the hues blend beautifully. Note all the subtle details accentuated by the choice of paint colors. This lovely grand old home is just steps away from the downtown shopping district.
Finally, a dreamy blue Victorian all dressed up for 4th of July!
Hubby and I will return here for another tour because there are lots of gorgeous old homes in this booming town. It’s also great for shopping, with a variety of stores and restaurants.
