Placerita Canyon Homes, Community and Real Estate

Today we're sharing about the Placerita Canyon community, in Newhall of Santa Clarita. Located west of the 14 freeway and north of old town Newhall. In addition to the community we'll share about the Placerita Canyon homes, local schools, amenities and real estate listings.

Placerita Canyon is nothing like the typical cookie cutter developments we've all grown to expect. Instead, these properties include custom built homes, some built back in the 1920's and other's are almost brand new.

Other than a couple new sub divisions located further north, each home is somewhat unique. There are a wide variety from which to choose and most have been custom built to suit the owner. Home buyers can expect to find homes from one bedroom shacks to 9 bedroom mansions. As you might expect, prices range from very inexpensive to the millions of dollars.

General Description of Homes in Placerita Canyon

Since most of the Placerta Canyon homes are custom, there's no accurate way to lump them together. They are way too different but here's what we can explain.

  • Most of the Placerita Canyon homes are custom built to suite the preferences of the owners.
  • Some homes are highly upgraded and expensive!
  • Many homes come with several acres of land and the entire community is horse friendly.
  • Some homes come with a rare second building such as a small apartment or guest house.
  • Placerita Canyon Road is actually a private road, owned by the residents. In fact, the road is gated on the end nearest the 14 freeway and opened only to residents.
  • There is NO Mello Roos assessment
  • There are no concrete sidewalks or paved trails

One thing for sure, if planning to buy a home on a property in Placerita Canyon, use extreme caution and do your homework. Some homes have multiple easements and others may not be connected to the city sewer. Be most cautious of the easements and we suggest hiring a consultant to fully research the property for easements and other oddities.

Community Amenities

No, there are no community amenities in the older portion of Placerita Canyon but there is NO HOA either. Also, to the best of our knowledge there is no Mello Roos, however be sure to verify for any other bonds or assessments.

This is a quite community and we like that it's a private road because even on a weekday morning, there's no traffic. Also, it's so nice for residents to be able to live the country life, but with all the best shopping, entertainment and dining just a couple miles away.
