In order to call Naperville “home,” you first need to find a place in which to live. The Naperville area offers a wide variety of housing, allowing just about everyone to find their heart’s desire at a price point that works for them.

OneNineteen on Main

Those seeking an urban lifestyle in downtown Naperville will find their heart’s desire at “OneNineteen on Main,” a recently-renovated complex of one and two-bedroom apartments at 119 S. Main St., only five blocks from the Naperville train station.

In addition to 49 state-of-the-art apartments with high-end finishes like stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, Euro cabinets, carpeted bedrooms and vinyl-planked living rooms and kitchens, the building features a 24-hour fitness club and a residents’ lounge complete with a chef’s kitchen, television and game area where residents can hang out or that they can reserve for a private gathering.

Each apartment is also allotted parking spaces, either inside the garage or outside on a surface lot.

“We are currently at 90 percent occupancy,” said Valerie Gianni of Calibrate Property Management, which manages the building. “Our residents are enjoying being able to walk outside their door to their favorite restaurants, bars, shops and downtown activities.”

The on-site management and maintenance staff cares for the building but also plans periodic social activities like nights out on the town at neighboring establishments like the Board & Barrel, Gianni said.

D’Aprile Properties

D’Aprile Properties, a full-service real estate firm, came to Naperville approximately three years ago, establishing themselves in a picturesque office at 236 S. Washington St., #200. Today that office accommodates 31 agents who handle all types of residential properties, as well as some commercial real estate, too, said Patricia Wargowski, managing broker of the Naperville office.

D’Aprile is owned by Ryan D’Aprile who has also established offices in Chicago, Hinsdale, Park Ridge, Arlington Heights, Michigan City, Indiana and both Burlington and Fontana, Wisconsin.

“Our agents rank among the top producers in our market, and consistently outpace industry income. Agents thrive in our environment, continually learning and growing through a culture of knowledge sharing. We offer a unique one-on-one mentoring practice to complement the most personalized coaching in the industry,” Wargowski said. “The backbone of our company culture is a strong blend of collaboration, dedication, and a focus on client service. We are a group that embodies energy, excitement and effort.”

“Naperville is a wonderful community with homes which range from historic homes to magnificent, newer mansions. It is a community which has managed its growth well and has been careful to listen to the wishes of its residents,” Wargowski said.

“It has an outstanding downtown which people actively support – full of vibrant shops and restaurants, as well a wonderful library, many fun festivals and a first-class college which brings the vitality of young adults to the community,” she added.

“The town enjoys top billing on lists like ‘kid-friendly’ and ‘best place to live’; has excellent schools; and is home to a very diverse population, where cultures hve the opportunity to learn from one another,” Wargowski said.

D’Aprile Properties has fit right in because it is a very community-minded company. Wargowski said that agents love their walk-able, downtown location where they can feel the pulse of the community and become involved in its many events and initiatives.

Tapestry of Naperville

The Tapestry of Naperville apartment complex opened at 2703 Showplace Dr., near the intersection of 95th Street and Route 59, in 2014. It features 298 upscale units with one, two or three bedrooms each, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. All are pet-friendly.

“Tapestry has been very popular, ever since it opened,” said Benjamin Barteaux, senior general manager. “What sets us apart from other area apartments is the A+ maintenance and office service we offer our tenants. My team pays close attention to our residents’ needs and requests and offer a welcoming environment. We truly offer people the best value for their dollar.”

The exteriors of the three-story buildings sport Hardie Board siding and faux brick accents. In addition, the complex features a 24-hour workout room with state-of-the-art equipment, clubhouse facilities which are available for weekend rentals, an outdoor pool, two grill stations, an outdoor patio deck with television and plenty of seating around both the grills and the pool.

Tapestry also offers a package storage room for deliveries that has 24-hour access and private garages are available for rent.
