Sunrise Community, Homes and Real Estate
The Sunrise neighborhood is truly a Valencia classic! Considered by the locals to be located in the, "Heart of Valencia," the Sunrise community includes a lovely mix of homes originally developed from the early to mid 1980's. Although there are a few two story homes, most are single story houses or townhomes and typically run a bit small, with 2 or 3 bedrooms and sized from 865 sq ft up to 1,356 sq ft.
The Sunrise community is situated east of McBean Parkway and South of Magic Mountain Parkway. The neighboring communities include the Discovery and Heritage subdivisions, all quite similar and built around the same time.
Since the Sunrise community is actually a smaller neighborhood and part of the Valencia 1 area, we cannot display listings for Sunrise only. The same applies to the Heritage and Discovery neighborhoods. They were all developed about the same time and located next to each other. You could walk through one community to the other and not even notice.
CAUTION: The listings displayed below will include homes on the market in all of the "Heart of Valencia."

Sunrise Not Your Style?
Sunrise really is a classic community and although built in the 80's, the homes and common areas still look amazing. Also, it's very difficult to find communities with reasonable HOA costs and NO MELLO ROOS. Still, the homes do run a bit smallish and for some, it's a reasonable concern.
Thankfully, the communities and Neighborhoods of Valencia are super popular and there is something for almost everyone. You'll find many great homes and areas to choose from so we bet you will find that perfect home somewhere here in Valencia.

This neighborhood park is a gem! It's tucked away back in the center of the Sunrise, Discovery and Heritage neighborhoods and off the main thoroughfares. Heck, we lived in Santa Clarita for nearly 20 years before we happened upon it. You can see by the photos, it's just lovely. There's no baseball diamond or soccer fields, but there's a playground, basketball court, a few benches and picnic tables. It's a great park to kick back and read a book, or perhaps even a short nap.

Typical Homes in the Sunrise Community
Are the Sunrise Homes Townhomes or Houses?
Looking at the real estate listing information, almost all the homes in Sunrise are listed as single family homes. That may be true, however many homes are more like duplexes or townhomes. The thing is, many homes share a common wall with their neighbor. In our eyes, that make them townhouses, but this is not what is shown on the title. Most homes have courtyard areas and nice backyards, perfect for entertaining a small number of guests or family members.
