Saratoga Parkside is a tidy community of 77 townhome style units adjacent to El Quito Park. These homes are held in condo ownership and the private road, Sara Park Circle, is directly off of Saratoga Avenue. Homes in the back, shown below, are a little smaller and have garages behind them. Closer to Saratoga Avenue, the design is different, and properties feature a 2 car garage in front.

At the center of the complex is a good sized pool and spa. At the back end of the campus, there is a large greenbelt area between two of the buildings. Beyond that, accessed by a locked gate, is beautiful El Quito Park. It’s close to a number or shops and stores on nearby Cox Avenue. Overall, it’s a fantastic location. All homes have an address along Sara Park Circle.

Saratoga Parkside history

Saratoga Parkside was built in the 1980s by Jerry Lohr of J Lohr Winery fame. From MLS comments of sales 20+ years ago, it seems that this pretty community was begun as a senior housing tract, which converted to use for residents of all ages use sometime before 1998, at which point some Realtors added in their MLS notes “no age restrictions”.

What are homes at Saratoga Parkside like?

Of the 77 units, 73 were built in 1980 and four more were added in 1989. There are 17 one bedroom homes with 628 square feet, 31 units with 2 bedrooms (varying SF from 1068 to 1312 SF), and 29 3 bedroom condos with 1510 or 1680 SF.

Some units have their own garage attached directly to the unit and directly accessible inside, these homes have a little back patio. Others are built over their garages. All homes have either a balcony or patio or both.

How is the parking situation?

While some condo and townhome communities seem decidedly short on parking, that does not seem to be the case here. Every home has a garage, and there is a very substantial amount of guest parking at the base of Sara Park Circle. During a recent weekend visit there, I saw a great number of open parking spots – a rare find in a townhouse or condominium community.
