Nakoma is an oasis within the city. It's a distinguished neighborhood known for its blend of architectural elegance and natural beauty. Featuring a mix of Colonial, Tudor and Craftsman architecture, Nakoma has historic charm, and its homes are surrounded by trees. You’ll feel tucked away from the city, but you’re still only minutes away from downtown. The hills of Nakoma overlook Lake Wingra, and the neighborhood is bordered by the expansive UW Arboretum, offering miles of hiking paths. On any given day, you’ll see dozens of people walking, running and biking through the Arboretum. The spring blooms in the Wisconsin Native Plant Garden and horticultural gardens are hard to beat! The Nakoma Country Club, established in 1923, is a neighborhood focal point, offering premier golfing and events throughout the year. 

Located on Madison’s southwest side, Nakoma is close to UW Madison, Monroe Street, Wingra and Vilas Parks. It’s conveniently located near the Beltline Highway, making it easy to travel in and around Madison. Nakoma stands as a testament to Madison’s architectural heritage, and continues to be a highly sought-after neighborhood.
