Stevenson Ranch Amenities
The homes in most neighborhoods here come with a Mello Roos and a reasonable HOA. The HOA is usually low cost, but the dues go up in condo or townhome neighborhoods. We are happy to report, in some neighborhoods the Mello Roos finally expired and did NOT renew! We remain hopeful this trend of expiration’s will continue without renewing.
Some common areas include park benches, 1/2 basketball courts, some with picnic tables or a small play area. A few specific neighborhoods have more recreational amenities. Usually the condo and townhome neighborhoods have their own swimming pool areas and perhaps a playground or sports court. The Southern Oaks neighborhood has a private swimming pool, spa and clubhouse.
Usually, the homeowner’s association covers the cost of common area upkeep and maintenance. Those neighborhoods with more extensive recreational amenities often have a higher monthly HOA cost and in some instances there are two HOA costs.
There are a large variety of nearby stores, restaurants and other fast food establishments.
Located at the base of the community, the Valencia Marketplace is huge! It’s on the east side of the Old Road and extends from Stevenson Ranch Parkway all the way to Pico Canyon Road and to Lyons Avenue. If that’s not enough, there’s also Stevenson Ranch Plaza just across the street.
