Vista Canyon is an interesting new, multi-use community located just east of the 14 freeway and north of Lost Canyon Road. The development consists of a variety of home types and uses. In fact, there are really only two neighborhoods with detached homes you can buy. The rest of the community is dedicated for apartments for rent, retail space, offices etc. This really is a unique community and certainly not the norm for most communities in Santa Clarita.

Description of Vista Canyon
Vista Canyon includes two types of detached homes called, Bluma and Auburn. Although these two neighborhoods are a bit secluded from the rest of the community, there is also be a convenient town square situated more centrally to the apartments and office buildings. Scroll down for more information about all the amenities & local conveniences.
The Bluma detached homes are sized at 1,401 SF, 1,579 SF and the largest is 1,690 SF. Each house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and available in 3 different plans. The primary difference is architecture and size. These homes are quite nice and the architect made great use of space with contemporary open floor plans. Best of all, the prices are pretty good, all things considered.
The homes in the Auburn neighborhood are larger than those in Bluma. These are also 2 story homes available in 3 different plans, sized at 1,855 SF, 2,201 SF to 2,312 SF. Each home comes with between 3 and 5 bedrooms and 2.5 to 3 bathrooms.
The idea of having town square in the center of the community is intriguing. It’s not like it’s never been done before but it’s certainly not common, especially for smaller communities. We also like the idea of having bus stops and a Metrolink Station within walking distance from anywhere in the community. If you use public transportation, it’s possible you get by without having your own car and if this appeals to you, Vista Canyon may be the perfect place to make your home.
