Between Los Gatos-Almaden Road and Ross Creek sits an eclectic east Los Gatos neighborhood, a county pocket, featuring a view of the hills where you can find a little bit of everything.

The homes built on Loma Vista Avenue, Linda Avenue, El Gato Lane and part of Escobar Avenue were first constructed in the 1940s, with many more filling out the neighborhood in the mid 50s.

They were three subdivisions initially:

  • El Gato Terrace
  • the Loma Vista Tract
  • Rancho Padre (Rancho Padre is the one closest to the creek).

(Please note: these are not part of Blossom Hill Manor, which begins on the adjacent Longwood Drive.)

 

El Gato Terrace, Loma Vista and Rancho Padre areas

Many of the first houses built are really more like cottages or bungalows, modest 2 bedroom, 1 bath homes with less than 800 square feet. Later, homes built were 1100 to 1300 square feet, many of them 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. All of them enjoyed deep lots of at least 8000 square feet.  Some are bigger parcels, though, especially properties closest to the creek. Some homes enjoy not just a main house, but additionally a guest cottage too.

The area is semi-rurual, with no sidewalks in most or all of the three subdivisions.

The area is convenient as well as scenic. From this neighborhood, it’s only about one mile to Vasona Lake County Park or to the shopping area of east Los Gatos along Los Gatos Blvd and Blossom Hill Road. It’s less than 2 miles to get onto either of our nearby freeways, too (convenient, but not noisy!).

I have taken some photos of typical homes in this neighborhood and hope you enjoy them.
