In most cases, especially in a large city like Milwaukee, being a renter means having neighbors above, below, and on each side. This can create a cozy sense of community, or it can create a crowded, noisy atmosphere that’s more stressful than relaxing. Or, even if having neighbors on all sides is more of a comfort than a complication, some renters just want a yard and a place to park their car that isn’t in a parking ramp. For these renters, seeking space and a yard, a duplex is a perfect option. If you’re looking for a duplex for rent Milwaukee has several great options.
This stunning duplex is nestled in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood, which, given the proximity to downtown and quirky, youthful climate, is the perfect location for families. The upper unit has recently been completely renovated with stainless steel appliances, large windows, quartz countertops, and spacious closets. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,250 square feet, this unit has plenty of space, but there’s also a backyard for grilling, and Humboldt Park is just a block away.
This three-bedroom duplex in the leafy Riverwest neighborhood has hardwood floors, a large, recently remodeled kitchen, off-street parking, and an updated bathroom. Beloved local institutions like Husky Brewery and Colectivo Coffee are just a short walk away, as is Riverside Park.
A block from the UW-Milwaukee campus, across the Union, this duplex is directed at the area’s dense student population. The lower unit has three bedrooms and a porch, and the upper unit has four bedrooms and a balcony, and on-site laundry facilities and parking are available to each unit. Although it’s in an older building, it’s been updated with modern colors and newer windows and doors to cut down on those lake-breeze drafts.
This duplex is also near the UWM campus, and a block from the Milwaukee River — and the miles of scenic trails that run alongside it. The lower flat has refinished hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen, off-street parking, and a bonus room perfect for studying. Renters here have access to the backyard, but also share it with the upper unit.
Renting in Milwaukee doesn’t have to mean living in a high-rise building, nor does it mean you can’t enjoy a yard. These duplexes are just a small sample of the many options Brew City holds.
