Los Gatos Real Estate and The Community of Los Gatos, CA

Dawn’s intimate knowledge of the community makes her an expert in Los Gatos Real Estate!

Whether you come for an afternoon or for a lifetime, Los Gatos leaves an impression. It’s one of Silicon Valley’s most desirable addresses, a reflection of the Santa Clara Valley’s pre-tech past and the gateway to the Santa Cruz Mountains. It’s a tight-knit community of approximately 30,000 people and a popular day trip destination whose scenic downtown shopping, dining and nightlife draws visitors from Silicon Valley and beyond. Los Gatos real estate offers its residents the best of small town charm and big city sophistication, making it rise to the top among the most sought after places to live in the Bay Area.

Located at the foot of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Los Gatos offers its inhabitants a wealth of outdoor recreational options. The town’s proximity to the mountains means access to open space, hiking and mountain biking trails. Those wishing to hike without leaving town can opt for the Los Gatos Creek Trail, which begins at Lexington Reservoir, passing through downtown and wending its way through the popular Vasona Lake Park during its 9.7 mile journey to San Jose. Los Gatos is close to local wineries and only 30 minutes from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and small mountain town getaways like Ben Lomond and Boulder Creek.

But why leave town when there’s so much to do at home? Los Gatos’ historic, pedestrian-friendly downtown features restaurants to satisfy the widest variety of culinary needs, excellent boutiques, bars and the picture-perfect Town Plaza Park, a Redwood-ringed green space that hosts bands during the summer and a Sunday farmer’s market year round. The Town Plaza is one of 18 permanent parks located within Los Gatos town limits. Every August, the Los Gatos Fiesta de Artes art and music festival draws a crowd of over 10,000 residents and visitors who fill the town’s streets, restaurants and shops.
