My number three pick is the Sunrise community located in eastern Bayfield; this community offers both free-standing homes and townhomes; only the free-standing homes were evaluated for this category. Sunrise is the newest community in Bayfield with homes being built between 2005 and 2017. The lots are large for a residential subdivision and most have open space views. Bayfield Elementary School is 9 minutes away, 8 minutes to high school, and 9 minute to middle school. The roads are paved with sidewalks, curbs, and gutters; utilities are underground, including water, sewer, and natural gas. Sunrise homes sold in the $419,000 to $540,000 range during 2021/22, with an average price of $495,450. This is a must see community for Bayfield buyers looking for a newer home.
