Close to Bay View’s res­tau­rants and nightlife, but much qui­eter, Cu­dahy is a mag­net for young cou­ples buy­ing their first home. Hug­ging Lake Michi­gan, a new wave of folks (many first-time buy­ers with young kids) are mov­ing into bun­ga­lows, ranches and con­dos. “The newly ren­o­vated down­town area in­cludes many lo­cal busi­nesses,” says Mark Ni­chol­son of Ni­chol­son Realty, “such as gift shops, bak­eries and a state-of-the-art li­brary.” Ac­cess is key, in­clud­ing Mitchell In­ter­na­tional Air­port and I-794 head­ing north to Down­town Mil­wau­kee for a night out at the the­ater, din­ing or mu­se­ums. “Cu­dahy is a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity to live in and raise a fam­ily, es­pe­cially with the ex­cel­lent school sys­tem and won­der­ful city ser­vices.” Lo­cals en­joy pic­turesque strolls on Lake Drive – where a lake-view home here will cost a frac­tion of what you’d pay on the Up­per East Side of Mil­wau­kee – or through Sheri­dan Park (“with a pool for sum­mer swim­ming,” says Ni­chol­son) plus a huge Fourth of July pa­rade and sum­mer farm­ers mar­ket. Large yards are also de rigueur: “Most prop­er­ties are sit­u­ated on half-acre lots,” he says.
