Horizon and Skyline Model Home Photos
Generally, entering the home there’s a foyer, the living room, kitchen and dining area is open, there’s a flex room, powder room and perhaps an office. A typical 2nd floor layout includes a loft, hallway, secondary bedrooms and bathrooms, the primary bedroom and bathroom retreat and a balcony. Many homes have one bedroom and a full bathroom situated on the first floor and some even come with an outdoor California Room.
Scroll down to the bottom for brief descriptions about the homes in each subdivision.
When entering Deerlake Ranch from Poema Place, we drive up the hill and pass a small group of Skyline homes on the left. Then, cross a lovely bridge to enter the main community. The HOA recreation area is on the right in the un-gated portion or the neighborhood. The 2 gated entries are on the left, one on Deerlake Ranch Drive and the next on Canoga Avenue. Basically, take either gate and the street circles around up the hill before coming back down connecting to the other entrance. The community can also be approached from Canoga Avenue. The common area landscaping has a rustic feel and we see a good amount of drought tolerant plants and shrubs.
