"Riding the wave of popularity"

Sunnyside is reaping the benefits of the hugely popular Berkely and Highland neighborhoods. It deserves to, because this is a beautiful neighborhood, despite the fact that it has seen some tough times. This used to be pretty much the wrong side of town. Now, it's the right side if you want to be where the action is. Sunnyside has beautiful historic homes that are getting some much-needed attention, large trees and yards, schools, and park spaces.

This area does not have as many dining options as Berkely, but that's not a problem since it's so close to that neighborhood. Driving along Federal, there is a surprisingly green feel for an area this close to Downtown and to major highways. It's a residential neighborhood in the heart of the city, close to everything yet lacking none of the amenities of residential areas that are further away.

If you are house-hunting, there is no lack of options here. There are many old homes and new condos here, but the prices aren't cheap. This is not so surprising, because of the beautiful homes and excellent location. This neighborhood offers a variety of housing options. Be selective, because there are still some rough patches here. But it's not hard to see that this neighborhood is coming into its own, and in many ways has already arrived. It's adjacent to the trendiest parts of town, and it's hard to overlook.
  • Prime location
  • beautiful historic homes and buildings
