Wiliams Ranch
Rendering of Williams Ranch.


IHP Capital Partners and Williams Homes  announced Thursday that Williams Ranch, a new master-planned community in the western Santa Clarita Valley they are developing through a joint venture, is progressing with grading operations and site improvements now underway.

Set on a scenic property in western Santa Clarita, Williams Ranch will include 497 homes in several distinct neighborhoods planned for mostly single-story homes, with a select number of two-story homes, ranging from 1,700 to more than 4,000 square feet on expansive lots, with the majority offering long-distance territorial or open space views. The majority of homesites, which start at a minimum of 7,000 square feet, provide the opportunity to design homes from 40’ to 65’ in width for spacious side and rear yards.

Williams Ranch amenities will include a private recreation center with clubhouse, pool, wine pavilion, outdoor kitchen and entertainment amphitheater. The community will feature large citrus orchards, vineyards, a five-acre Los Angeles County park and nearly 5 miles of walking trails winding throughout approximately 430 acres.

The community is located approximately one- and one-half miles west of the Interstate 5 and one mile north of the 126 freeway. It is directly adjacent to the Valencia Commerce Center and neighbors Castaic’s Hasley Hills neighborhood.

“As a gated community of competitively priced traditional detached homes in a setting well-located for commuting to employment within the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys in north Los Angeles County, we think Williams Ranch is uniquely positioned within the region,” said Blaine Peterson, Managing Director for IHP Capital Partners, an investor in new housing developments throughout Southern California for more than 25 years. “We’ve had great success in previous partnerships with Williams, a company that has been dedicated to creating successful communities in the Santa Clarita Valley over the past two decades. We’re excited to be working with them on carrying out the vision for Williams Ranch and expect a strong response from homebuyers.”

The community is expected to open in late 2021.

“The Big Rancher is back at Williams Ranch,” said Lance Williams, Chairman and CEO of Williams Homes. “We founded the company 23 years ago in the Santa Clarita Valley building big, beautiful single-story ranch style homes and Williams Ranch will bring that back in a huge way to the Santa Clarita Valley. There will be nothing that comes even close to offering all we have in store for Williams Ranch and we are very excited to bring this community to life in the Santa Clarita Valley where we call home.”

    We need to know how are you going to handle schools, traffic, and accessibility in and out of the community. What provisions are you making for roads safety and crowdedness in schools, hospital, and other resources which will be needed in our community. Please, do not build and leave us with an overcrowded problem.

  2. Sylvia Webb says:

    Very interested to see what these homes will look like and the cost as well?

  3. Jonathan Ginsberg says:

    You keep building more houses but leaving infrastructure to suffer. What about all the extra traffic and schools and stores and traffic lights needed for all this new development? The quality of life is turning lower due to overdevelopment. So thanks.

  4. Barbara Lendman says:

    Just what we need, more houses in Santa Clarita Valley. We are already overcrowded here. Where is the water going to come from to supply all these houses. We are already in a drought situation here. And what about the traffic, overcrowding in the schools. This is a very, very bad idea.

  5. Tanisha Barnett says:

    Will some of the homes be section 8 ready?

  6. Tanisha Barnett says:

    Will some of the homes be available for section 8?

  7. Elaine Dorty says:

    Hi, I’m also interested in knowing how traffic is going to be handled. If you have pictures of your single story homes and pricing l would be interested in seeing them.
    Thank you

  8. Cynthia Lang says:

    Do you have an estimated completion date 1st phase and house starting prices ?.

  9. Kim Joyce says:

    I live in the area already and we are looking to buy a new house where I can custom some of the house myself.

  10. waterwatcher says:

    This project is a fire trap with only a two lane road in and out, just like Paradise where all those people died. And it is right next to the Chiquita Canyon landfill. Who in their right mind would want to live there! I just hope the realtor discloses all this stuff to anyone that considers buying there.

  11. John Toungaian says:

    What has been changed as far as the plan since Los Valles made their presentation to us three years ago? I understand that nothing has been changed except the name to Wiiliams Ranch? Is everything the same?

  12. Belvia Jenkins says:

    Good day

    Would you be able to send information and email updates.


  13. Kelly M says:

    Ah… only 23 SHORT years ago … the “TOP” of Hillcrest was Yosemite Dr. CASTAIC Elementary had just opened. There was no middle school. There was no CC Ranch.. Only Undisturbed hills above the lower streets in the homes we now say are “behind Ralph’s”… in fact, back then, the only RALPHS was in CASTAIC Village. There was no Northlake, no Country Village (barely finished Marigolds) … No Hasley Estates, none of the ‘newer’ homes off Parker.. I think you get it.
    Before you start complaining about the hills and open areas being destroyed for more homes, or the traffic or the “overcrowded” schools… first consider where YOU live. If your own home was in one of the locations I mentioned above.. then consider that many of us ‘older’ crowd watched as new homes were built.. tore up the hills and WE knew what “overcrowded” schools were! New development that creates homes for families is not so bad and the ‘new’ owners have every right to a nice family neighborhood just like everyone else who moved here after 1994!!
