One reason is that this amenity-rich community offers affordable living in the form of diverse single-family homes. The homes in Sunflower were built between 1998 and 2002. They were originally offered in ten different floor plans, each featuring two or three bedrooms and two-car garages. This gives homebuyers many options when looking for resale homes in the community.
