University Heights Homes & Architecture

Tour a few open houses in the University Heights subdivision and you'll find many interior features that you no longer see in the designs of today. Arched doorways, ornate staircases, French and pocket doors, and built-in cabinets with inlaid leaded glass — these are just a few of the interior details that are common to the houses in this area. Many vintage properties have also been substantially remodeled to include modern interior finishes. You'll find many University Heights homes that feature gourmet kitchens and luxurious master bedroom and bathroom suites, with renovations that successfully blend the character of the old with the convenience of the new.

The Madison Landmarks Commission provides a wonderful walking tour of the historic district. The tour covers some of the classic Tudor, Georgian revival, Queen Anne, "East Coast," and arts and crafts designs that line the streets of the neighborhood. In addition, a great variety of classic mid-century designs dot the streets of the subdivisions just to the west.
