Galloway 55 Plus Community Introduction
Built by Lennar, Galloway was the last neighborhood built as part of the Five Knolls development. This 55+ neighborhood is quite beautiful and designed specifically for active adults at least 55 years of age.
The contemporary styled homes are designed with open floor plans, with the 2 story models sized from approximately 1,840 sq ft up to 2,458 sq ft and come with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. There are a few single story homes sized at 1,401 sq ft. In the 2 story homes, the master bedrooms and primary living space is situated downstairs. Depending on the home, many include a loft, bonus room, den, outdoor deck or perhaps a California room. The homes also come with a 2 bay garage.
The Galloway homes are energy efficient, WiFi certified and include smart devices with voice control by Alexa.
Although the neighborhood has it’s own recreational amenities, it’s also next door to the Santa Clarita Senior Center. Residents can enjoy recreation and activities within Galloway, or step next door to join the fun at the senior center. How cool is that?
Our Thoughts About Galloway
Overall, the community comes with plenty of benefits and there’s a lot to like! First, Galloway is very new and the overall Five Knolls is just beautiful. We really like the dog park at Golden Valley Park and the Bella Vida senior center in such close proximity. Certainly, if you’re an active adult looking to buy a great home in a new, comfortable neighborhood, be sure to check out Galloway.
We would have liked to have seen more single story homes. Also, when you combine the cost of a new home, the monthly HOA cost, these homes could end up being a bit pricey for some local seniors.
NOTE: Just because some neighborhoods are NOT specifically designated as age restricted for adults, that does NOT mean there are no other suitable neighborhoods that would work well for active adults. In truth, there of plenty of homes in other neighborhoods that would work just fine. As longtime realtors and lifetime SCV residents, we’re able to use our local knowledge to help our clients find suitable homes, sometimes when others cannot.

Galloway Amenities for Active Adults
Although we’ve seen more recreational amenities in other neighborhoods, those here in Galloway are not bad and since the Senior Center is just next door, residents are all set. Galloway is a gated community so residents can rest easy with an added layer of security. There’s an upscale clubhouse, outdoor kitchen, fire pit & enclosed lounge. The swimming pool is intended for healthy lap swimming as opposed to just fun and games. Then, there’s a wonderful whirlpool type spa, perfect for warmth and relaxation.
The Club is the HUB for a variety of fun activities and social events. This really is a terrific community to make your home and has become quite popular among the 55+ crowd.
Local residents also enjoy easy access to developed trails that extend for miles throughout most of Santa Clarita. There’s gated access main trail system located at the west edge of the neighborhood.
Before making an offer to buy, be sure to verify the monthly dues and review the HOA rules and regulations.
