Located in the north of Greensboro, Sunset Hills is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in town. With houses built in the 1920’ and 1930’s, an excellent community feel and not too far from downtown Greensboro, this neighborhood has it all to offer residents on a plate. Accessible, friendly and a highly sociable area, this is one of the most highly sought after areas of Greensboro and it’s easy to see why.
Many of the homes that were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s in this area of town have stood the test of time however there has been a recent upsurge in development within Sunset Hills. While this might sound scary (and noisy) it is actually the result of many upscale home renovations where the classic exterior is being met with brand new, modernized interiors. Seeing the older fashioned buildings being lifted in such a stunning and exciting way is just a sign of what kind of area Sunset Hills is and how highly the residents value their space in the neighborhood. After all, you don’t put that much effort into renovating your home if you’re just planning on moving in 6 months time!
Sense of Community
Of course it’s not just the houses that make this area of town as popular as it is. The sense of community that fills the streets is palpable when you visit and the residents are so friendly that moving to the area is an absolute joy. Having a proper community area you not only makes you safer but happier and it is much easier to make new friends when you move in.
There is no greater example of the community feel than the annual lighted tree balls festival that takes place around town. Having been set up over 20 years ago the festival started with just one family learning to make the lighted balls which are made out of chicken wire and lights. Spreading out by words of mouth and neighbors teaching one another how to create the decorations, the festival is now about more than just decorations being hung once a year. A food bank and fun raiser now runs in tandem with the lighted tree ball festival, highlighting just how important it is to look out for one another in this community.
Excitement of Downtown
This stunning part of town is ever popular, with lots of people checking out the neighborhood and choosing to move in. Being so highly sought after and having such stunning homes on show with the excellent links to the excitement of downtown Greensboro, and having such wide open spaces, living in Sunset Hills gives you the best of both worlds. Whether you fancy the fast paced lifestyle of living in a big city or the more relaxed lifestyle of a suburban community, Sunset Hills really does offer it all. Take a walk round the streets and meet some of the neighbors, you won’t look back!
