This location is ideal for many reasons. It’s easy to get to Highway 85 via Union Avenue (left end of the map, above) or to take Blossom Hill Road to downtown Los Gatos to the wast or toward Oakridge Mall and loads of other shopping and restaurants to the east. Walgreen’s, Starbucks, Mountain Mike’s Pizza and more can be found at Blossom Hill and Harwood,  at the SW corner (shown on the map at the far right as the light brown area). Belgatos Park is close, too.

Are there any issues or concerns with Blossom Hill Farms?

This subdivision has an overwhelming number of positives: scenic / close to the hills, close to major commute routes, outstanding public schools, well kept neighborhood, close to Los Gatos, and on and on.  Every neighborhood will have some kind of challenge, though, and this one is no exception.

The concerns here are shared by nearby neighbors in adjoining subdivisions: the high voltage power lines that run behind Anne Way, water runoff impact (foundations) from the nearby hills, road noise from Leigh or Blossom Hill. If you are within a half mile of Leigh High, you will hear the band practicing and playing at games).

Homes closer to Blossom Hill are more likely to be impacted by road noise and water / foundation issues. The further from the hills it may be better.
