Los Gatos CA
Also known as gem of Silicon Valley
Los Gatos is a town of many charms, both obvious and hidden. Called the “gem of Silicon Valley,” it is nestled between the bustle of high tech and the quiet beauty of a quaint European village. From its stunning setting at the base of the redwood-covered Santa Cruz Mountains, to its exquisite architecture, the town, symbolized by the twin cat statues that grace an estate in the foothills, is the perfect setting for the life you deserve.
Just seconds from major freeways, Los Gatos quickly transports your senses to a kinder, gentler time. And yet, everything you could possibly desire is moments away, with world-class shopping, dining, entertainment, recreation and winetasting, all in your own backyard.
Delightful Downtown Los Gatos, brimming with boutiques, is easily walkable and offers a delicious array of ethnic eateries, Michelin starred restaurants and casual wine bars. There’s even an Apple store. This is, after all, the heart of Silicon Valley, the hotbed of innovation, and home to dozens of Fortune 500 Silicon Valley Companies, along with some of the world’s most renowned start-ups and game-changing venture capitalists.
Education opportunities at every level, from private youth academies and sought-after public high schools, to prestigious colleges and universities, are the envy of the world. The Los Gatos schools feature some of the highest API scores, while delivering small class sizes and dedicated, caring teachers. Storied institutions like Stanford University, Santa Clara University, University of California, Berkeley, San Jose State University and UC Santa Cruz make the Bay Area a bastion of educational excellence.
There are also major league sports teams abound, with the brand new Levi Stadium hosting Superbowl 50 in 2015. Recreation opportunities are endless too: Vasona and Los Gatos Creek County Parks provide 150 acres of fun for biking, fishing, picnicking, hiking, running and boating. Playgrounds and nature trails are plentiful, and nearby State Parks offer respite for the soul, with the Pacific Ocean just minutes away.
Is it any wonder property values here are among the highest in the West? Life doesn’t get much better than this. Own a piece of the dream. Make Los Gatos your home for a lifetime of happiness.
