As the neighborhoods in close proximity to Denver are becoming more crowded and pricey, would-be buyers are flocking further from the city to check out up and coming areas where prices may be a little more affordable. While areas like Capitol Hill, the Highlands, and Washington Park are all established in their popularity, areas like Sunnyside in North Denver are growing and transforming into family-friendly neighborhoods ideal for first-time buyers.

Home to about 10,000 residents, Sunnyside is a 1.5-square-mile area in Denver bordered by Federal Boulevard to the west, I-70 to the north, Inca Street to the east and West 38th Avenue to the south.

Once home to run down auto shops and taverns, for the past 10 years Sunnyside has been transitioning to a family friendly area featuring breweries, restaurants, shops and much more. There will also soon be more transportation options for residents via the RTD’s 41st & Fox station, which is part of the highly anticipated G line in Arvada.

Several large parks can be found in the area – in fact, every house in Sunnyside is within a half mile of a park. Whether they’re picnicking or playing or both, residents can choose from such outdoor areas as Columbus Park, Ciancio Park, Chaffee Park and the Pecos & 46th Park.

Property values, like most of Denver, are way up in the Sunnyside neighborhood. Median home prices here stand at about $504,450 and rents follow the typical trend in Denver, with a median rate of $2,337 for all-size properties.

Prices are a bit more palatable in this area, but homes here are going fast. If you’re interested in seeing what Sunnyside has to offer, contact Metrowest today – we’d love to show you around!
