The hills are alive with joy

Town of Delafield — The Hills of Delafield is about as close as a Waukesha County subdivision gets to resembling the Colorado Rockies. With its steeply sloping lots, panoramic views and scores of towering spruce trees, the neighborhood differs from most newer subdivisions, which are typically built on the flat
fields of former farms where the tallest thing around is an abandoned silo.

Colorado and blue spruce trees are everywhere in the Hills of Delafield: lining the subdivision’s roads, filling corners of backyards and towering from the five landscaped islands that dot neighborhood streets. Located in the Town of Delafield, just east of Highway 83 and north of Summit Ave.(Highway 18), the Hills of Delafield is closer to the Village of Wales than the City of Delafield.

The hilly, rural area is within biking and hiking distance of the Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, affording residents built-in opportunities for recreation and socialization.
