Castaic CA Homes and Neighborhoods
Years ago Castaic was known for being a truck stop with a large picturesque lake. Though the lake has always been an attraction, in the last 15 or 20 years Castaic has developed into a mecca for home buyers. There are amazing new housing developments all over Castaic and home buyers generally find that home prices are more affordable, especially when comparing to similar homes in Valencia or Stevenson Ranch.
The Castaic neighborhoods consist of a full range of homes in every type and size. You'll find affordable condos to large single family homes.
Take a drive back through in Hasley Canyon and discover large sprawling ranch type homes on large lots. These ranch type homes are great for those with a desire to escape the city life but remain nearby the amenities of the city.
Castaic has an abundance of opportunities for children to be involved in organized youth activities. Most of us living anywhere in the greater Los Angeles know about Castaic Lake. Yes, there's a variety of fishing, boating and skiing but there are some outstanding activities available through the parks and recreation. You can learn more about Castaic Lake at the LA County Parks Website.

More First Hand Information About the Castaic Schools
The Castaic schools are outstanding and certainly rival the school districts in Santa Clarita. Also, very soon Castaic will have their own High School. It's planned to open for 9th graders in August of 2017. Have a look at this Castaic High School post published by our very own Meray Gregory a year or two back! Castaic has three elementary schools and their own middle school. The middle school is quite unique and the only one we've ever seen with their own sports stadium.

So, what's the downside to Castaic? We don't really think there is a downside, but if there was one we'd have to say it's the very occasional snow that occurs to the North of Castaic during the winter. This is kind of a local joke because we rarely get any snow in these parts! When there's heavy snow up the grapevine to the north, Interstate 5 will shut down, right at Castaic. No huge problem, but during those rare shut down periods there can be traffic problems when trying to access Interstate 5.
