Sunnylea Real Estate
Types of Homes in Sunnylea:
Sunnylea is primarily made up of detached bungalows and two-storey homes that were built in the 1940’s and 1950’s, although it has seen a marked increase in new builds and major renovations recently. There are also a few high-end condominium buildings and townhouse complexes in the area. Your neighbours are still pretty close, but you generally have a nice piece of green space in the back, and private drives with garages (that nobody parks their cars in) are all the rage in this neck of the woods.
