Why Do People Live Here?

The Highlands was platted on Madison’s west side in the early 1900s by a renowned landscape architect in a naturalist style. Today that thoughtful planning is reflected in tree-lined streets and large, wooded back yards that embrace the area’s geography. A rolling greenway extends through the neighborhood from Highlands West Park, a three-acre oasis of green space tucked along Willow Lane, to Highlands East Park, a four-acre natural sanctuary. Owen Conservation Park, located just south of Highlands on Old Sauk Road, provides neighbors even more opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with nearly 100 acres of protected prairieland and forest waiting to be explored on miles of trails. Kettle Pond Park, a glacial pond surrounded by eight acres of woods, is located directly west of Highlands on Old Middleton Road. Schools are also nearby, which draws many young families to Highlands. Crestwood Elementary School is located along the neighborhood’s south border.

What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?

Fewer than 90 homes have been built in the Highlands since development began here in 1911. Stately homes were built on oversized wooded lots that make Highlands one of the most private communities on Madison’s west side. Highlands’ streets are quiet because it’s comprised entirely of single-family homes, parkland and clearings of green space. The community’s ornate architecture, oversized lots and unparalleled privacy make it one of the most exclusive neighborhoods on Madison’s west side.
