Originally developed in the early 2000’s, Tesoro Del Valle is located on the map in the northern portion of Valencia, just north of Copper Hill Drive, on both sides of Tesoro Del Valle Drive. The community currently consists of 11 separate neighborhoods and the recreational amenities might be the very best in Santa Clarita.

Tesoro Community Overview
If you’re searching for a home to buy in a newer and nicely developed neighborhood, Tesoro Del Valle might just be the perfect fit! The neighborhoods and homes are always looking their best and the home values continue to remain strong. This may be partly due to the local community homeowners association, rules, regulations and guidelines, but it’s also a reflection the pride of ownership by the Tesoro homeowners. Most local residents will agree, Tesoro is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Valencia.
Future Development Coming Soon
More housing is under construction at The Highlands in Tesoro and the first three model homes should be ready for tours later in 2023. The development is planned for approximately 820 homes, 360 of which would be designated for senior housing.
The Valencia locals often refer to Tesoro Del Valle as just “Tesoro.” Of course, it’s known for breath taking views and the amenities may be the best in all of Santa Clarita.
The main community HOA recreation area is absolutely outstanding, featuring a lovely man made lake and a variety of amenities, some of which you won’t find in other neighborhoods. The developers really did go all out on the amenities here in Tesoro. Scroll down for more specific information.
Tesoro Del Valle Amenities
There’s a terrific pool, spa, barbecue, outdoor cooking area, picnic area, playground, tennis, gym/exercise room and a clubhouse. Residents enjoy walking or jogging along the developed trails that extend around the lake and connect up with the local park. As expected, all these fine amenities come with a price and HOA costs can be quite steep. By the way, unlike the lake in Valencia Bridgeport, the lake in Tesoro is fenced in and not open to the public.
Tesoro Adobe Park
In addition to the community HOA amenities, there’s also Tesoro Adobe Park, available to all and located just above the clubhouse at the top of the community.
For those unfamiliar with the area, it’s important to be aware of the Mello Roos Tax. Mello Roos is an added tax paid by homeowners living in a specific developed community, and Tesoro does have this Mello Roos tax. See our interview with title expert, Derrick LeBlanc to learn more about Mello Roos in Santa Clarita.
