Kenosha is Wisconsin’s fourth-largest city. Nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan, it offers the charm of a smaller city with the amenities of nearby Milwaukee and Chicago. Maybe that’s why it’s become one of the best places in the country for first-time homebuyers, according to Wallethub.
Still, plenty of people rent in Kenosha, taking advantage of the city’s affordable rents and plentiful new construction. Here are five excellent Kenosha apartments.
With a pool, a fitness center, and private entrances for every apartment, Kenosha Commons offers luxurious accommodations at an approachable price. The complex offers 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom plans, all in an accessible complex just west of downtown.
One of the great things about Kenosha is how affordable apartments in centrally-located, historic homes can be. This first-floor apartment offers gorgeous hardwood floors and stunning interior woodwork and moulding. With a three-season porch, you’ll be able to enjoy the lake breeze… or the lake itself, which is just steps away.
For under $1,000 a month, an entire home in Kenosha can be yours. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and a two-car garage — not to mention hardwood floors and a quirky exterior paint job.
If you’re moving to Kenosha for work, Riverwood might be up your alley. This complex near Highway 41 is conveniently located near several major area employers: Aurora Medical Center and Uline among them. Also convenient? The fitness center, pool, and basketball courts available at Riverwood for all tenants.
This charming red-brick building just west of downtown was recently renovated, and features hardwood floors, high ceilings, and spacious rooms on the lower level. Both the kitchen and the bathroom have been recently remodeled, giving you the best of both worlds: antique look and modern convenience.
