Homes in the near west side of Madison are arguably the most sought after, and for good reason. Situated close the University of Wisconsin campus, hospitals, and downtown, these established neighborhoods with larger lots, mature trees and plenty of parks have a lot to offer. Everything is a short drive, easy bike ride or a nice walk away. And by everything, we mean everything. Near Westsiders are well positioned to enjoy a large mix of restaurants, shops and businesses along University, Old University, Monroe and Regent Streets. It may cost a bit more to live here, but the beauty and convenience are easily worth it.
