Five Knolls Community Overview
Those interested in visiting Five Knolls should know, there are 3 different entry points as indicated on our map displayed further down the page. There is un-gated access to the Grayson and Haywood neighborhoods via Five Knolls Drive. Next is the gated entrance to The Heights, accessible from Claremore Way. The Heights is generally thought to consist of 4 neighborhoods called Highglen, Everett, Monterra and Brighton. There’s also a separate gated entry to the new 55 Plus Galloway community, also located off of Five Knolls Drive, but on the south side of Golden Valley Road.
The homes in Five Knolls are known to be spacious, energy efficient with open floor plans and include some of the latest in home technology. Most homes include a primary bedroom and bathroom suite, a loft, an upstairs laundry room and often there is one bedroom and bathroom situated downstairs.
Five Knolls has been subdivided into 7 amazing neighborhoods and each has something a little different to offer. If you’re interested in a large home with a view, you might like the Everett or Highglen neighborhoods. If you prefer a smaller home take a look in the Grayson or Haywood neighborhoods.
We love how the primary clubhouse and recreation area are laid out in relation to the neighborhood. In some communities the recreation areas are tight and seem to be squeezed in. That’s not true here in Five Knolls. Overall, the builder allocated plenty of land and some areas have a resort like feel!
Our Thoughts About Five Knolls
As longtime local real estate professionals and lifelong Santa Clarita residents, we think Five Knolls is a terrific community. The homes here are well built, common areas are nicely landscaped and the amenities are lovely. Yes, we would recommend this area to our family and friends. The only downside is, there Mello Roos in all neighborhoods except Galloway. Although possible, it’s tough to find a home in a newer neighborhood without a Mello Roos.

Five Knolls Community Amenities
The amenities of Five Knolls are terrific and remind us of a mini resort. There’s are hiking trails which conveniently connect the upper and lower portions of the community. Hikers will find a lovely Butterfly Knoll along the way.
The HOA clubhouse is called “The Club” and conveniently located at the un-gated portion of Five Knolls. There’s a swimming pool, hot tub, clubhouse, playground, barbecues and a sport court. The large designer swimming pool is gorgeous, with plenty of room for lap swimming or fun & games. The Clubhouse fits nicely within the community.
Hindsight is perfect, but it would be nice if there was a second recreation center within the gated neighborhoods. Galloway has their own amenities.
The HOA amenities are appreciated but it’s no surprise, they also come with monthly dues. With the exception of Galloway, there is also a Mello Roos. The amounts vary, so if planning to buy in Five Knolls be sure verify first. It’s so important to know the correct Mello Roos and HOA amounts, because the final numbers are factored into the loan equation.
