Galloway 55 Plus Community Introduction
Galloway is still very new and the last neighborhood built as part of the Five Knolls development. Built by Lennar, 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 is packed with plenty of active adult 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. We also understand there is a future YMCA planned. 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 brand new and Five Knolls is just beautiful. We really like the dog park and the 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 homes and of course, none of us care for the added Mello Roos! Also, when you combine the cost of a new home, the monthly HOA cost and the Mello Roos, these homes could end up being a bit pricy for some local seniors.
NOTE: Just because most neighborhoods are NOT age restricted for adults only, does NOT mean there are not other suitable neighborhoods where active adults can buy a home and live comfortably. In fact, there of plenty other neighborhoods that would work just fine, and we’ll help you find them.

Galloway Amenities for Active Adults
Although we’ve seen more recreational amenities in other neighborhoods, Galloway’s 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 of Galloway and perfect for a variety of fun activities and social events. This really is a terrific community to make your home and quite popular among the 55+ crowd.
Before making an offer to buy, be sure to verify the monthly dues and review the HOA rules and regulations.
The Y Coming Soon Next Door
We understand there’s a YMCA coming soon, just next door to the Senior Center.

Golden Valley Park
The new Golden Valley Park is conveniently located just across the street at the base of Five Knolls. The park includes a terrific dog run area with separate big and small dog enclosures, a playground for the kids, expansive greenbelt, covered picnic areas and lot’s more.
