Canyon Country: What's Old Is Getting New Again

Santa Clarita's easternmost community, Canyon Country, has been around longer than Valencia. The benefit of finding homes built back then, is the lot sizes.

Fair Oaks Ranch is a growing large tract south of the 14 freeway, featuring homes for sale from the low 400's (condominiums) to well over $600,000 for single family homes for sale, with homes having as much as 3500 square feet in interior size. The only drawback to buying the newest homes is the smaller lot sizes you'll find in these new properties. They're not tiny, but they are probably 35% smaller in size than homes built 2 decades ago. Fair Oaks Ranch has pockets of high Mello Roos assessments, lower Mello Roos and NO Mello Roos, depending on the time and location of the properties. Check with us, as not all the Mello Roos assessments in the area are huge.

Vista Canyon, Fair Oaks Ranch and More

Vista Canyon will be a groundbreaking pedestrian-based neighborhood consisting of townhomes and more. From Five Knolls and the Whites Canyon hills on the north side, to Fair Oaks Ranch on the south, you'll be able to find homes with very picturesque views of the SCV. As a tradeoff, insurance will be higher in Fair Oaks Ranch properties that push against those beautiful foothills, as they can be fire risks.
Trestles is a new home development with no MELLO ROOS near Via Princessa and White's Canyon. Five Knolls is well into their expansive buildup of homes where Golden Valley Road meets Newhall Ranch Road. Five Knolls is the largest of the 3 developments by far. There are plans for well over 1,000 new homes in this new neighborhood. PRICE TRENDS: Median Prices by Home Type:

Sand Canyon and Robinson Ranch

The Sand Canyon area in Canyon Country has far fewer residents on about the same footprint as all of Valencia. Translation: BIG LOTS with gorgeous estate homes scattered south of the 14 freeway. Sand Canyon still doesn't easily connect to Fair Oaks Ranch to it's south, but the Vista Canyon development along the riverbed of the Santa Clara River will soon change that. Robinson Ranch offers golf course adjacent properties as well as full ranch properties, in the southeast corner of the SCV. Very nice choices of homes here...
