55 Plus Communities in Santa Clarita

Homes in the Belcaro Community

55+ Overview

Senior Communities of Santa Clarita

As the number of 55 Plus communities in Santa Clarita continue to grow, active seniors have more options than ever before when buying homes in suitable communities.

Once upon a time options were quite limited but that’s no longer true. Yes, we still have the Friendly Valley 55 Plus neighborhoods and of course there are a number of senior specific mobile home parks, but you might be surprised at some of the senior homes in the newer developments.

In fact, some of these neighborhoods are quite luxurious, resembling small resorts. Others are more modest but one thing they all have in common are amenities geared toward active, 55 plus seniors.

55 Plus Community Prices

Depending on which community you choose, the price can be very steep. To be honest, it makes us wonder if home prices are too far out of reach for the majority of our Santa Clarita 55+ crowd.

To be sure, new homes in the newly developed 55 Plus communities can be quite costly. Thankfully, there are still some reasonably priced homes usually available in Friendly Valley.

Be sure to have a look at all our senior living communities and reports. We provide first hand information, photos and videos intended to help our local seniors find and buy their perfect homes for this stage of their lives.

How are the 55 Plus Communities in Santa Clarita Different than Non Age Restricted neighborhoods?

This is an interesting question and it really depends on the community. Some of these newer 55 Plus communities are similar to mini resorts. Usually, but not always, the homes tend to be smaller and are single story. Even if it’s a 2 story home, usually the master bedroom and bathrooms downstairs.

One thing senior living communities all have in common are the amenities. Usually the amenities are quite nice and geared toward seniors. They also have organized, age appropriate activities and clubs.

Here in Santa Clarita, most of the 55+ communities are gated and secure. Many of the homes will be a bit smaller and often single story homes.

There’s plenty more to share on this but I think you get the picture. For sure, the newer homes will be more accessible for seniors AND more expensive. Keep in mind, these senior designated 55 Plus communities are intended for ACTIVE seniors and NOT assisted living.

Choose SRES

Buying or Selling for 50 Plus

If you are over the age of 50, your real estate needs will be different than say, those of a first-time homebuyer or seller. Perhaps you are ready to retire or simply just downsize.

That's where we can really help. As experienced Realtors® and Senior Real Estate Specialists, we have the qualifications, experience and insight to help you every step of the way.

Our representation will help you learn of opportunities created just for those 55 and over.

Friendly Valley for 55 Plus Active Seniors

Friendly Valley 55+ Community

Friendly Valley 55+ Community

If you live in Santa Clarita, you are well aware, Friendly has been a staple for active senior living in Santa Clarita for years. Nowadays, our seniors have more community options but Friendly is still a terrific choice for active seniors. Built in the early to mid 1960's with more homes added during the mid 1970's. There is also a newer area of Friendly Valley known as Friendly Valley 11, built around 2004.

Most of the housing in Friendly Valley consists of modest, single story homes with 2 bedrooms and 1 or 2 bathrooms. Many homes are 1,100 to 1,200 sq ft. There are a few larger 3 bedroom homes but those are the exception rather than the rule. Driving through the community you'll notice plenty of mature shade trees and the entire community is well maintained. Yes, it's an older community but well cared for.

You may hear complaints about the high HOA costs but it's not that bad we think it's worth it. There are two golf courses, a large heated pool and hot tub. All outside maintenance, including roofs and painting are included in the HOA dues. Also included in the monthly fees is the cable TV, Internet, golf course fees, trash and use of all of the amenities with the community.

For years Friendly Valley has been the primary 55 Plus retirement community in Santa Clarita but as usual, times are a changing. Please don't misunderstand though, Friendly Valley is still every bit as popular as ever, and certainly the most affordable community of the bunch.

Galloway at Five Knolls for 55 Plus Seniors

Galloway is an amazing community designed for 55 Plus active adults. The homes were constructed with the active adult in mind. Seniors will appreciate most of the living space is optimized for living downstairs, but with an upstairs room to do with as needed. The first floor includes the master suite bed and bathroom and open floorspace throughout. The kitchens are amazing, perfect for any occasion.

Keep in mind, the Galloway is a new development, so the homes will not come cheap. Still, the prices are not too bad considering the homes include from 1 to 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, sized from 1,840 to over 2,400 sq ft.
