There's plenty of shopping, dining, the new library and Historic Hart Park. Newhall has also been the home to many featured movies throughout the years.
Friendly Valley is a gated community for adults over 55 adult. Let me tell you, there are some wonderful deals to be had on smaller townhouses. Just be very careful to consider the HOA cost as it's quite steep. Still, in our opinion the amenities are quite worth it. It's not an assisted living facility. It's a retirement community with a great golf course and lots or organized activities for seniors.
Though many homes for sale in Newhall are older, they are also unique and some are quite amazing! We especially love the area around Happy Valley. Prospective home buyers will find some large single story homes and we've even seen homes with a detached guest house.
