Homes for Sale in Stevenson Ranch
Oh, that Stevenson Ranch.... They fought against annexation by the city of Santa Clarita..and won. The city formed in 1987, about the same time Saugus, Newhall, Canyon Country and Valencia coalesced into the city of Santa Clarita. This area backs up to the picturesque Santa Susana Mountains, and has a rock formation that reminds me of the famous Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado.
When you watch the opening credits of "Weeds" (Showtime) in the first 2 seasons, they show a few Stevenson Ranch streets, as the song derisively sings about "Little boxes, on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky tacky..." Those 'little boxes' are worth a fortune now, and most people would be thrilled to live in Stevenson Ranch. It is closer to Los Angeles than anywhere in the SCV, and it has very nice-sized homes
for sale with all the amenities residents need, as long as you don't need a huge back yard. The master-planned community uses famous poets names in many of their streets, and the views from many properties will make you want to write your own poems...
