The two largest homeowner communities for adults over age 55 in Santa Clarita are Friendly Valley (east Newhall), and Valencia Belcaro (north Valencia.)

Friendly Valley is a sprawling community made up of 11 different Homeowners Associations, each with their own minor variations on the 55+ lifestyle.

An expensive buy-in, of approximately $5,000 gets the new homeowner many niceties, not the least of which is membership in the 9 hole private golf course.


All of the homes there are single story bungalows built in the late 60's but have been impeccably maintained over the years.

Belcaro is comprised of two tracts: The Greens, and The Liberty. Homes have either two master bedrooms or a master plus one bedroom or media room.


One model features 2 bedrooms and 3.5 baths has a casita. Of utmost importance to some seniors, there are a few homes there that are single story. Home sizes range from 1700 to 2400 square feet.

Valencia Belcaro activities center

The recreation center includes an art studio, a library, outdoor kitchen, a game room, a massage room, a performing arts studio,


a mini cafe, a health and fitness gym, men and women's locker room, basketball court and conference center.


Prices range from the high $500's to the mid $600's. Belcaro has a garden club where they can grow


vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers. The community also has an on-site activities director that plans field trips, seminars, and lectures.


More recently, two communities,  Aliento in Canyon Country and Galloway at Five Knolls became the newest and most upscale community


in the city for age 55+ wanting to own a home. These are new construction homes priced starting in the $500's. Lots of space and clean fresh air.

Aliento in Canyon Country

There are a dozen apartment complexes spread out over the Santa Clarita Valley, but these two are the ones for homeowners to take a close look at, due to their focus on adults over age 55.


Strangely, they made the Galloway residences 2 story... though the master bedroom is on the main floor.
