Woodcreek Quick Facts
Woodcreek Neighborhood Overview
Woodcreek consists of a variety of classic, single story and two story homes. There are no condominiums or townhomes. In fact, it’s nice to see neighborhoods with more single story houses as they have become rare in newer neighborhoods.
The homes here are approximately sized from just under 1,000 sq ft up to 2,000 sq ft. The most common home sizes are from 1,200 to 1,400 sq ft and come with 3 or 4 bedrooms. All homes have front and back yards and some have built in swimming pools.
The primary attraction of Woodcreek might be more about what it does not have, as opposed to what is does have! Unlike most neighborhoods in Valencia, there is NO homeowner’s association and NO Mello Roos Tax! Not having a HOA is rare here because nearly all master planned communities of Valencia have at least one HOA.
It’s interesting, of all the Valencia communities this one does NOT fit the profile of a typical Valencia neighborhood. We are not implying there’s anything wrong with Woodcreek whatsoever! In fact, we once owned a terrific pool home here and we loved it! The neighborhood is really quite nice, but it is older and certainly not what most would visualize when comparing with other Valencia neighborhoods. However, with housing costs continually on the rise buyers might find a more affordable option here! Let us know if we can help!
