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.”

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.
hmm… what would you call it?
(valencia is nothing more and nothing less than a trademark; Newhall Land can apply it to whatever it wants. But this is different… we called it Plum Canyon because that’s the closest thing, historically, to what it is, at least as far as we can imagine…)
You access five Knolls from Golden Valley rd…
I’ve been delivering dirt loads up there for weeks now…
My freight bill says Golden Valley, Santa Clarita…
yeah, but there’s no “Golden Valley” section of town .. and if we said “Golden Valley” people would confuse it with the high school or the part of the road by the 14 freeway. People don’t yet know there’s a Golden Valley Road over where you’re talking about. And we can’t just say “Saugus” because it’s too nondescript – that could be anywhere from Bermite to Agua Dulce.
We could say “central Santa Clarita” but how central is it, really? Usually we say “central Santa Clarita” when describing where Bermite is.
This development is next to the area called “Sky Blue Mesa”. Five Knolls is an extension of that mesa (well most of 5 knolls was a deep canyon now filled with dirt). Golden Valley is over by Lowes & Target at the southern end of Golden Valley Road. Sky Blue Mesa area is a Canyon Country zip code.
hmm. now that’s an interesting thought.
maybe we just need to say something like, “between Ermine Street and Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus.”
or maybe “east of Central Park”
yeah, somewhere in the middle :)
or heck, “between Saugus and Canyon Country,” even though there really is no “between”
Oh! Got it. We should just call it Honby and make everybody wonder.
changed it & added a Google Earth map to the story. It shows the grading now.
next time the old recycling places catches fire, everybody will know where it is. :)
I’ve always considered that hillside canyon country because that’s how we got to it when we used to off-road up there years ago…
Drive up the Santa Clara river from CC…
Now that they put the cross valley connector through there it’s kinda blurred the lines for me where CC ends and Saugus begins…
But these are just boarders I’ve dreamed up myself over the years…
When I hear Plum Canyon It brings to my mind the other side of the hills, deep within Saugus…
I guess it kinda sits above and between many landmarks / boarders…
Maybe there isn’t one right answer…
The Saugus/Canyon Country zip code border runs right through the middle of that property. Prior to the 1970’s that whole area was Saugus. Canyon Country didn’t exist. Honby sounds good. Down wind of the recycle place too.
I think they will call this area Saugus. Canyon Country goes much further to the east.
How about call it .. Greedy landowners building more home taking up more water, more traffic and ripping down the once beautiful Santa Clarita or canyon country mountains as we know it??
Canyon country has and always will be from 4 corners and east or Ross and east.. You guys can put a label and I guess that is great for us in canyon country right next to us, hopefully our home value will sky rocket, but you can’t put a new development on land in canyon country and market it’s a Saugus or valencia.
I’m sorry but I’ve lived here in hobby and we all know what hobby or further to be which is canyon country .. But hey thanks for pushing more homes being built and sold, while our beautiful landscape has completely depleted and I guess we should all tell our employers that if we are late to work it’s not our fault call the city of Santa Clarita who has decided to add 120,000 new bodies driving :-)
Is this the new Beazer tract?
It’s in Saugus off Pum Cyn.
Look at all that green green grass.
They must have that fake grass that if a dog or cat pers or poops on it doesn’t desinegrate into the soil just makes everything smelling like a kennel , lol
Real Sod in that park.
Real Sod in that park.
I just bet the homes cost a lot.
Wonder where they are going to get all that water from??????
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..
500-800K holly crap
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 ,
Stephen Medina. Ugh.
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.
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.
The prices are ridiculous! This is SCV not the valley
Where is the water coming from for all of these new homes?
From whichever agency gave them a will-serve letter … you’ll find the answer in here => http://www.scvhistory.com/scvhistory/keystonedeir2005.htm
Walked through th em not worth the money
