The Milwaukee lakefront provides some of the most incredible real estate to match the wonder of Lake Michigan. But right outside of Milwaukee are some great real estate options for you and your family, on some of the smaller lakes in the area.
If you’re looking for lake-front property that is not so much in the thick of things, consider the outlying Lake Country as your next home.
Lake Country is an ideal place to raise a family – scenic, intimate, and full of potential, the communities offer great schools and recreational resources at a more affordable cost and pastoral style. Land prices are still very competitive in the area, so it definitely deserves consideration if you are looking to stretch your dollar. If you think this is more your pace, don’t hesitate to ask us about Lake Country.
Money Magazine rates Waukesha one of the top places to live in the U.S., and it’s easy to see why. Located just 18 miles west of Milwaukee, Waukesha County is close to downtown, but holds onto its own unique identity.
Living on one of the many lakes in Waukesha County gives you the chance to get away from it all, but have everything the local communities of Hartland, Delafield, Merton, Nashotah, Summit, Oconomowoc, North Lake, Pewaukee, Chenequa, and the Milwaukee metropolitan area have to offer. Once known as the Saratoga of the west, Waukesha County was a popular resort destination. The area still retains this idyllic feel as it looks out over the pristine lakes of Wisconsin, some of which are: Pewaukee Lake, Upper and Lower Nemahbin, Lake Nagawicka, Beaver Lake, Pine Lake, Upper and Lower Nashotah Lake, Oconomowoc Lake, Lac la Belle, Silver Lake, Okauchee Lake, North Lake, and Moose Lake.

If you ask Waukesha County residents what their favorite time of year is, chances are they’ll have difficulty answering because it’s such a great all-season town.
