1922 - Wyatt Earp's wife thanks William S. Hart for defending her husband's honor [story]
Wyatt Earp story

More than 1,000 people attended Saturday’s “Discover Day” at Five Knolls, a 494-home community that’s being built between Bouquet Canyon and Soledad Canyon roads by Brookfield Residential in conjunction with four other award-winning builders.

The potential home shoppers viewed modern new homes, parks and resort-style community center called The Club.

The 247-acre, masterplanned community is expected to provide a new home for the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center and the SCV Family YMCA.

Formerly known as Keystone, Five Knolls is situated among five knolls overlooking Saugus and Canyon Country.

“The hillsides of Five Knolls are some of the most attractive settings for new homes in Santa Clarita,” Brookfield’s Alison Girard. “This community is emerging as a scenically inspiring small world designed around a refreshing new lifestyle for the region.”

  1. Mike Kent Mike Kent says:

    It’s more of a stretch to call this development “Plum Canyon” than it is to call Villa Metro “Valencia”. Plum Canyon is on the other side of the hills.

  2. Carol Clark Carol Clark says:

    Look at all that green green grass.

  3. I just bet the homes cost a lot.

  4. Wonder where they are going to get all that water from??????

  5. Where’s all the folks in an uproar about the wild life I have had more coyotes on the streets and twice off of Soledad almost hitting them on Soledad because they have been shoveled out of there home where the homes our built.. Disgusting..

  6. Ben Stroba Ben Stroba says:

    500-800K holly crap

  7. With all the building going on , i believe the city bigshots are keeping it a big secret that somehow the great , S C V has escaped the drought and everyone can get back to their gardening and get their lawns back after all , there’s plenty of water to go around , just ask all the developers new plans still going on for more communities for 2016, no room for breathing anymore , and yes , the animals are being shoveled out of their homes , where else are they supposed to go , hopefully people don’t start getting trigger happy and start killing the wildlife that is left around here in S C V , how sad things can sometimes get out of hand for progress and money and forget about the balance of nature and how THAT affects us too , just the way i feel , no intention of offending anyone , i just feel all respect for what we used to have , which really was a natural beauty here is forever gone , seems like every natural stone will be replaced by concrete , how sad ,

  8. Stephen Medina. Ugh.

  9. This is far too much now. My whole family lives in CC and Valencia. We ALL feel the same about all this OVER development. It’s WAAAAY too much now. Poor animals. Poor environment. So unfortunate that people are that money hungry. We will all be living on top of one another in no time! I initially thought we already were BUT no, so much more to come! Makes me sad and angry for my children.

    • Patty Ann Patty Ann says:

      It’s called progress. LA County is running out of room. My hometown Northrige is not the way I remember it growing up. Escaped the SFV 30 years ago to the A.V. Too many people here now, not a small town where you always ran into a neighbor when out and about. I miss the small town feel.

  10. The prices are ridiculous! This is SCV not the valley

  11. Start says:

    Where is the water coming from for all of these new homes?

  12. Walked through th em not worth the money

  13. The park up there was being over watered yesterday 30 min plus

  14. The park up there was being over watered yesterday 30 min plus

  15. So is the Golden Valley extension open from Newhall Ranch to the top of the hill now? Been waiting months….

  16. Mike Kent Mike Kent says:

    Sky Blue Mesa for them.
