Los Gatos house description

This 3500 sqft ranch style home is on a quiet mountainside with an unobstructed view of Monterey Bay. The open floor plan, family oriented house is a great get away from city stresses. Absolute peace and quiet surrounded by the beauty of redwood trees, nature, clean air and clear mountain spring water from the tap. It's the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. There is plenty of room for the whole family to spread out and a game room with something for almost everyone. The master bedroom has a cal king bed and a queen bed. Two of the other bedrooms have a queen bed each. The computer room has a twin XL bed and a roll away twin available. In the game room there is a full size hide-a-bed couch. The kitchen has a Jenn Air cook top, double electric ovens and two refrigerators to accommodate a crowd. The dining room table seats ten (twelve if you squeeze) and there is counter seating and an outdoor dining area too. The tranquility of the setting by day and the stars by night will take your breath away. Viewing wildlife from the deck is always a treat. The Santa Cruz Mountains have many wineries that offer tasting rooms, some are very close by and Capitola offers store fronts that are cooperative tasting rooms

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My husband and I have raised our family at this home. Now our children bring our grandchildren to visit occasionally. We enjoy rural life. Over the years we have had horses, goats, chickens, rabbits, cockatiels, rats, hamsters, and of course cats and dogs; usually as part of 4H projects. Now that we are older, we enjoy our dog and cats as companions and the wildlife that visit us here are friends.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  When you are here, you could be 1000 miles from everything else. This location is so ideal; it offers a manageable 25 minute commute to either Silicone Valley or Santa Cruz. The quiet, tranquil privacy of the Redwood Forest is wonderfully relaxing. The view is spectacular and the fresh air and mountain spring water are the best!!
