Saddlebrook Park is one of my favorite Mequon HOAs for its flexibility and beauty. Saddlebrook Park is just a two-minute drive from the highway and offers the most versatility of all the Mequon subdivisions. Saddlebrook Park is equestrian-themed with a relaxed vibe and is super kid-friendly. Dotted by three-acre parcels and rustic wooden fences, homeowners can choose their own individual architectural style, and enjoy fences, pools, and composition roofs. Their HOA has a “can-do” attitude that has allowed homeowners to build separate structures, outdoor kitchens, and rich amenity compounds. Only a mile from the Village of Cedarburg, this is a highly sought-after subdivision. Prices are steep starting at $1.2 million to well over $2 million to get into this very attractive pocket of Mequon. This is my top pick for Mequon subdivisions.
The Concord Creek subdivision was established in 2010. Want a newer constructed home with walkability? This might be the place. Concord Creek offers a mix of single-family homes and townhome-style condominiums. This subdivision can be found west of I-43 by about seven minutes between I-43 and I-45 making it easy for a west or a downtown commute. Concord Creek’s HOA also allows composition roofs and is a super kid-friendly subdivision.

Stonefield’s of Mequon
Stonefield’s has long been the subdivision of choice for many Milwaukee executives. This easy-to-live-in subdivision lives like a condo association with yard maintenance and snow removal as part of the HOA. Cedar shake roofs are a requirement in this subdivision, and they do not allow fences or pools. Stonefield’s lies along the river and offers large rolling yards and beautiful scenery. There’s a similar theme found here as with the other Mequon luxury subdivisions -- the walking and bike trails. Many prospective home buyers are not made aware of all the amenities Mequon has to offer and it’s often the walking and bike trials that are missed. These trails are some of the most desirable features of Mequon. Children in this subdivision use the trails to walk to Homestead High School.
Gazebo Hills is a subdivision of 128 homes located off Donges Bay Road and Range Line Road in SE Mequon. This subdivision offers low Ozaukee County taxes and close proximity to University School. This is a great choice for families who want lower taxes but want to remain close to the school. This was one of the first established subdivisions of Mequon, and they have a well-organized HOA. Their HOA recently endorsed the installation of composition roofs, moving away from the old requirement of cedar shake roofs only. This is a progressive move by Gazebo Hills HOA and should lead to a revitalization of this subdivision. Prices can start as low as $500,000 in this subdivision.
