The City Center neighborhood occupies a central location in Madison, south of Lake Mendota, and is a place where you'll find lots of small to medium sized apartments, including some high rises. The residences here were mostly built from the 70's onwards. West of Lake Mendota you'll find Middleton Junction, a nicer part of town featuring higher value properties. While high-rise apartments are not hard to find, this part of the city offers more single-family homes and an older, wealthier overall demographic. A ways south of Middleton is the suburban neighborhood of Five Points. Five Points offers a mix of small to medium sized houses in addition to a number of apartment complexes in the one and two bedroom range. Those looking to be by the urban setting of the city center without being right downtown might enjoy Fitchburg, where there are not only medium sized homes, but also large houses and townhomes.
