Plum Canyon Community Overview
The development of Plum Canyon commenced in the mid-1980s and evolved steadily until around 2021, when Toll Brothers completed the Avalon, Mirabelle, Sierra, and Victoria neighborhoods. While there are exceptions, the newer homes tend to be in the neighborhoods on the east end of the community, with the older classics are on the western side. Thoughtfully planned and meticulously maintained, Plum Canyon stands as an ideal community to call home.
Diverse in style, shape, and size, most neighborhoods feature traditional single-family homes, ranging from cozy single-story dwellings to expansive luxury residences. There are also many beautiful hillside homes, some with amazing views. If interested in condo living, be sure to have a look at the Mariposa complex. There are also some terrific condos to be found in the Bordeaux neighborhood. Both complexes are well known condo communities in Santa Clarita and popular stops for prospective condo buyers.
Certainly, when considering home prices, location plays a crucial role, and Plum Canyon is no different. The pricing is also influenced by prevailing market conditions and various other factors. In specific neighborhoods within Plum Canyon, certain homes may be subject to a Mello Roos tax, while others are not. We provide essential information about Mello Roos, allowing you to determine whether the home you’re interested in carries this additional cost.
Plum Canyon HOA’s & Amenities
Plum Canyon is a bit different than other communities. Some neighborhoods come with an HOA while others do not. Some actually have 2 HOA’s. There are a few neighborhoods with an HOA, but amenities only include common area maintenance. Others include amenities such as swimming pools, hot tubs or recreation rooms. It varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Be sure to scroll down for a look at our subdivisions section to find out more about each specific neighborhood.
As expected, there are also private recreational amenities in the Mariposa and Bordeaux condo and townhome neighborhoods
Some homeowners like the idea of a HOA because it’s proven to help maintain home values. Others prefer no HOA. Whatever your preference, it’s all here in Plum Canyon.
Residents enjoy easy access to local convenience shopping and dining at the new Skyline Ranch Plaza, located near the top of the community. There’s a Starbucks, Telly’s and more.
Nearby Fire Station 128
Plum Canyon is rather secluded back in the hills of Santa Clarita, but residents find comfort in knowing LA County Fire Station is situated at the east edge of the community.
New Plum Canyon Park
Plum Canyon Park is located east edge of the community. There’s a covered picnic or party area, full basketball court, baseball diamond, plenty of greenbelt, restrooms and more. Since the park is still new, it’ll be a while until the trees mature enough to provide shade.
David March Park
March Park is a smaller neighborhood park with parking, rest rooms, plenty of shade trees, a grass area and a nice playground for the little ones. There is an interesting March Family Bell in the park so it’s certainly worth a visit, if only to see the memorial.
