Usually, excited Santa Clarita home buyers first hear of the newer more popular communities located in Canyon Country and Valencia. That’s easy to understand, and if one is unfamiliar with SCV, the Canyon Country Rainbow Glen community can easily go unnoticed. This is partly due to location, as Rainbow Glen is a bit tucked away. It's also because of some confusion between the various neighborhoods and home owners associations that make up this peaceful and quiet community.
The neighborhoods located in the Canyon Country Rainbow Glen area are actually situated in nine different neighborhoods. There are multiple home owners associations that make up each area, and each HOA has specific amenities available for their residents. The older homes are called the American Beauty Classics and built in the late 80’s. This neighborhood is lovely, and as peaceful and serene as one can hope for in a planned community. The newer homes, such as those found in the Monterey and Pacific Grove tracts, were built in the late 90’s to early 2000. Just like most communities, there are a wide range of homes of every price range, size and type, including a separate condominium complex. Some areas are situated on flat land but a good number of homes are situated on hills, offering some amazing view opportunities.
