Sunnyvale East is the technological hub of Sunnyvale. The birthplace of Fry’s Electronics, this area also represents tech giants such as Advanced Micro Devices, Yahoo, and Lockheed Martin. This neighborhood is also a hotbed for companies in the pharmaceutical, software, electronic, computer graphic, and semiconductor industries. Many technology-based vocational universities have been established to serve businesses such as these.
The majority of Sunnyvale East homes are small condominiums. Built in the 1970s, the Courtyard and Sunnyvale Meadows are the most desirable complexes, due to their lush surroundings, private patios, and generous distances between units. Units at these locations host one to three bedrooms, one or one-and-a-half bathrooms, and an average interior space between 800 square feet and 1,100 square feet.
Newer townhome complexes, built around the year 2000, are larger and more luxurious. These complexes include Fusion, Evelyn Glen, 37 Degrees North, and Aster Place. Most homes in these complexes are tri-level residences with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, ranging from 1,200 square feet to 1,600 square feet.
Resident park-goers may choose from a couple of relaxing options. Swegles Park is a small area that mostly serves the Fusion townhome community, while Fair Oaks Park spreads across 15 acres, making it one of the city’s primary parks, and accessing ball fields, basketball courts, a recreation center, a volleyball court, and a skate park.
Elementary schools include Braly, Ellis, or San Miguel Elementary, while students then have the option to attend Columbia, Peterson, or Sunnyvale Middle. Afterward, students are off to either Fremont or Wilcox High School.
