Friendly Valley Community Description

If you live in Santa Clarita, you are probably familiar with Friendly Valley. This lovely 55 Plus community has a classic country club feel and has been a staple for active senior living in Santa Clarita for years. Nowadays, our seniors have more community options than ever, but Friendly Valley is still a terrific choice for active seniors. Development began in the early to mid 1960's with more homes added during the mid 1970's. There is also a newer area of Friendly Valley known as Friendly Valley 11, built around 2004.

Entering the Community
The main entrance to the community is from Friendly Valley Parkway. There's a guard house and visitors must be approved for access before being allowed to pass. Residents have an access card. There's a second gated entry just north of the main entrance, but there is no guard so entry accessible for residents only.

What are the Homes Like?
Most of the housing in Friendly Valley consists of modest, single story homes with 1 or 2 bedrooms and 1 or 2 bathrooms. Some homes are as small as 660 sq ft and others are sized up to around 1,400 sq ft. Many homes are in the 1,100 to 1,200 sq ft range. There are a few larger 3 bedroom homes but those are the exception rather than the rule.

Driving through the community you'll notice plenty of mature shade trees and the entire community is clean and well maintained. Yes, it's an older community with a 1970's look, but it's all quite charming and extremely well cared for, peaceful and serene.

Popular AND Affordable
For years Friendly Valley has been the primary 55 Plus retirement community in Santa Clarita and even today, it's the most affordable. Yes, there are now newer age restricted neighborhoods where you can buy a home, but all are considerably more costly than Friendly Valley. Please don't misunderstand though, Friendly Valley is still quite nice, still very popular, and certainly the most affordable of the bunch.

HOA Information
All the amenities are terrific but they don't come for free. Since the amounts will vary we don't list them here, but from what we have experienced, it's probably worth the cost.

You may hear complaints about the HOA costs, but considering the amenities, it's not that bad. Always be sure to verify the monthly dues and we highly recommend taking a close look at the HOA rules and regs. Pets are permitted but certain rules apply.

CAUTION: The HOA rules enforcement can be quite strict but in the end that's probably best for all residents living in the community. Be advised, ALL residents are expected to know and follow the rules.

Please contact us with any questions. 661-713-4799.
