Wexford Village—Location is Everything
The Wexford Village neighborhood is tailor-made for anyone that works, eats or shops on the west side of Madison. But if you’re more into nature or exercise, well, Wexford Village has that covered too.
Conveniently located between Gammon Road and the West Beltline, Wexford is bordered by Old Sauk Road on the south and the Madison/Middleton city limits on the north. Development of this 407-acre neighborhood got its start in the late 1970s and 80s — and the area is still popular today. You can’t beat the location.
The mostly 2-story homes are well kept up and typically feature 3-4 bedrooms and 2-3 baths. Prices generally range between $250,000 – $500,000, with the median selling price at $363,000 as of March 2018. The tree-lined streets and generous square-footage make these homes the perfect place to raise a family. In addition to the 650 single family homes, 28 duplexes and 114 condo units offer another option for those wanting less space — or less yard work and maintenance responsibilities.
Wexford Village offers plenty to do for the 3,500 residents that live here. Several parks are just a short walk away, including Wexford Park with its 20 acres of greenspace, right in the heart of the neighborhood. In addition to the kids’ playground and picnic area, the park is a haven for sports enthusiasts as well — with basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, 2 skating rinks and open fields for throwing footballs and catching Frisbees.
A network of 3.7 miles of lighted walking paths attract walkers, runners and dog-walkers as well as bikers. Stricker Park and Pond and Woodside Heights Park, which borders Tiedeman Pond, are also popular destinations — especially among walkers and nature-lovers. Of course, for those that prefer a “cement pond,” the High Point Pool provides relaxation, fun in the sun, and organized swim team activities for kids and families all summer long.
Wexford Village has an active neighborhood association that brings residents together for several neighborhood events, including an annual garage sale, 4th of July parade, Easter Egg Hunt, End of Summer Potluck, and Earth Day Park Clean-up.
The neighborhood is on a Madison city bus line which goes directly past West Towne Mall, with convenient stops at Jefferson Middle School and Memorial High School. Glen Stephens Elementary is also close by on Rosa Road. There’s access to healthcare, with both UW and Dean Clinic having branches nearby. And the Alicia Ashman Library in Sauk Point Square is a popular neighborhood family gathering place.
