Whether you want to live near downtown or prefer a more rural feel, you’ll find the perfect place to call home in Watertown. From stately Victorian homes to new construction, Watertown offers a wide array of housing options. With a population of over 24,000, Watertown is split between Jefferson and Dodge counties and has the Rock River ever so graciously winding through it.
Watertown’s established neighborhoods are characterized by tree-lined boulevards adorned with bungalow, Cape Cod and ranch style homes. If you have a taste for historic architecture, you’ll find several distinct neighborhoods offering a variety of architectural styles including Italianate, Queen Anne, and Georgian Revival style homes. Many of these homes are still in their original condition and have been placed on the historic register.
You will find that relocating to the Watertown area is quite affordable in comparison to surrounding communities. In more recent years, a growing population has called for new subdivisions to be built. Along with an abundance of lovely homes, many feature popular neighborhood parks with playgrounds and additional recreational opportunities. Apartments, condominiums, and senior living facilities are additional options for those not in the market to purchase.
Watertown provides all of the necessities of life, plus some of life’s luxuries. The friendly, welcoming, small-town atmosphere of Watertown endears itself to new residents and makes it a comfortable place to live for generations of families.
