The OTHER Newhall Hillside Neighborhoods
Newhall is smack dab in the middle of a pretty mountainous area. Beale's Cut, the famous slice in the mountains that opened up Los Angeles to San Francisco for wagon/train travel, is only 2 miles from downtown Newhall. 2 miles north of Beale's Cut, along the 14 freeway, is the neighborhood of Lantana Hills. Homes for sale there go for the high 500's and low 600's. They might be the nicest properties for sale available to people who simply must have the shortest commute time possible.
Hidden Knoll - Truly Hidden
McGrath Elementary School is located just down the hill a short way from The Vistas as well as the quiet Hidden Knoll neighborhood off Deputy Jake Drive. Homes there are very nicely appointed, with 4 and 5 bedroom properties in the 2400-2800 sf range. The area is pin drop silent with the exception of the occasional blasts from the Metrolink and freight trains that carry from the intersection of Newhall Ave. and Railroad Ave. well over a mile away.
Their close neighbor is The Vistas, a sprawling condominium community on Dockweiler Drive atop the hills leading up from Valle de Oro. The Vistas offer modest 1,2 and 3 bedroom condos for sale from the mid $200's to mid $300's. Don't let the low prices of the condos at The Vistas fool you: some of them have stunning views of Placerita and Quigley Canyons, while others overlook all of Santa Clarita. Not bad for the usual $250,000 prices seen there. Below, view prices at THE VISTAS by unit size in square feet:
Below them, are identical units, but are available only as apartment rentals. in a large complex called Terrace Apartments. We strongly encourage renters in these areas to look at moving two blocks up the hill, and end their renting miseries. The Platinum Grant Program is an excellent way to help renters escape the spiraling rent costs in Southern California. Below them, are The Village Apartments and Sierra Village condominiums along Newhall Avenue.
