Old Orchard Overview
When Old Orchard was first developed, the concept of a homeowner’s association was something new to the local real estate market, especially for those relocating to Santa Clarita from Los Angeles or the San Fernando Valley.
The Old Orchard community consists of 4 subdivisions including Old Orchard 1, 2, 3 and then there’s a condominium complex. Home buyers will find a nice mix of 1 and 2 story houses sized from approximately 1,225 sq ft up to over 2,600 sq ft. The homes mostly come with 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedrooms. There are also the cozy 1 & 2 bedroom Old Orchard Condominiums, sized from approximately 482 to 987 sq ft.
Old Orchard Amenities
There are separate amenities for residents living in Old Orchard 1 and 2. This includes swimming pools, hot tubs, clubhouses and recreation. There is no HOA or amenities in Old Orchard 3. The condo community has their own amenities. If you’re not a fan of HOA’s, Old Orchard 3 might be just right!
Trails and Preserved Nature
Old Orchard locals all enjoy an amazing trail system and it’s just perfect for walking, jogging and bicycling. We especially like the underground tunnel as well as the preserved oak trees providing shade and beauty along the way. Just gorgeous!
Old Orchard Park is located at the base of the community and open to the public. It includes a playground, basketball court, picnic areas, an expansive grass area with plenty of mature shade trees. This especially nice for the residents living in Old Orchard 3, since they don’t have amenities built into their neighborhood. This is one of the more well known and much loved parks in all of Santa Clarita.
Schools and Local Conveniences
Nearby schools include Old Orchard Elementary, Hart High School and Placerita Junior High. The elementary school is conveniently situated directly within Old Orchard 1 and fits in nicely with the neighborhood. The high school and junior high are next to Old Orchard 3.
There are many nearby stores and restaurants. Perhaps the closest is Old Orchard Center situated at the south edge of the community along Lyons Avenue. Examples include:
- Aldi Market
- Round Table Pizza
- Vallarta Markets
- Whole Foods Market
- The Social Fine Dining
