Friendly Valley Community Description
If you live in Santa Clarita, you are probably familiar with Friendly Valley. This lovely 55 Plus community has a 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.
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 but quite charming and certainly well cared for.
You may hear complaints about the high HOA costs but considering the amenities, it's not that bad and we think it's worth it. There are two golf courses, a large heated pool and hot tub. Most outside maintenance, including roofs and painting are included in the HOA dues. Also included in the monthly fees are internet, TV cable, the golf course fees, trash and use of many other amenities within the community, including the clubs and a very interesting theater group.
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 more 55+where you can buy a home, but all are more costly than Friendly Valley. Please don't misunderstand though, Friendly Valley is still every bit as popular as ever, and certainly the most affordable community of the bunch.

Friendly Valley Community Amenities and Local Conveniences
Friendly Valley is a guard gated, secure community and known for its extensive amenities, especially the private golf course. It doesn't stop there because there is a wide variety of other activities, all geared towards active seniors. When visiting the community the first building you see upon entry is a large clubhouse. Within the clubhouse there's a huge swimming pool, spa, hot showers and lots more.
List of Amenities
Of course, most of the common area and home exterior maintenance are included in the HOA dues, as well as the trash pickup and cable. Basically residents can rest easy and need only concern themselves with the inside of their own homes as well as the air conditioning and a few other things.
- Pool & Spa
- Outdoor Cooking & Picnic Area
- Bocce Ball Court
- Gym & Exercise Room
- Billiard Room
- Card Room
- Banquet Facilities
- Rec Room
- Common RV Parking
- Meeting Room
- 24 Hour Patrol
All these 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 well worth the cost. 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.
Also, the HOA rules enforcement can be quite strict but in the end that's probably best for all residents living in the community. There is no doubt, you will be expected to know and follow the rules.
There's plenty of convenience shopping and dining located a very short distance from the community. Everyone shops at Stater Bros grocery store and many use the banks, cleaners, mail centers and really, everything the residents need are easily accessible. Oh, the bus stops within the community.
Friendly Valley Home Descriptions
Some homes are as small as 660 sq ft and others are sized up to around 1,400 sq ft. The smaller, 660 sq ft home is very affordable and come with 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, a covered parking stall with a small overhead storage cabinet. Some residents install their own awning over their patio.
The next size unit is typically around 850 sq ft and often comes with 2 bedrooms and 1 or 2 bathrooms. Some of these homes also come with a large bonus room enclosure at the rear of the unit.
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 well maintained. Yes, it's an older community but well cared for and perfect for active adults.
When visiting the community don't be surprised to see residents walking their dogs or driving by in their golf carts. There are lots of organized activities and the residents are quite content. The best way to get to know the community is to contact us for a tour. Remember, it's a gated community so you can't take a drive through on your own. Contact us for a tour.
