Saugus, CA Homes

Ask 5 people which part of Santa Clarita Saugus is in, and you might get 5 different answers. One official map shows it based around Railroad Ave. near Newhall, while another points to Soledad Canyon Road where the Saugus Swap Meet is. Still another shows it firmly north up Bouquet Canyon.. I'm of the latter camp, since Saugus High School is there...

The history of Saugus, CA is filled with train tracks, airfields and way stations. I could write a book about it, but others have, so I'll stick with recent history.

Saugus was largely built out from 1975 to 1985, and in many ways shares the same look as its counterpart to the east, Canyon Country. There are dozens of blocks of mid-century architectural style homes for sale, with many notable for the heavily slanted roof style that was popular in that era. Many of the homes are ranch style, especially in the Seco Canyon area. There are usually more town homes for sale in Saugus than in the rest of Santa Clarita.

Boundaries

Located far enough northeast of Valencia to be in its own zip code (91350-51) Saugus stretches so far, that drive-time just to the freeway can reach 20 minutes on a bad day. Saugus is bounded on the north by scenic Bouquet Canyon, where homeowners are dealing with depleted water wells, due to the recent drought. Saugus is bounded on the south by Newhall, where it crosses Soledad Canyon Road.
