Looking to purchase a Los Gatos fixer property with upside potential? Please check out 39 Reservoir Road, a stone’s throw from downtown. It’s new to the market this week!


House Front Unit A 39 Reservoir Road, Los Gatos fixer


Situated in a scenic hillside area full of multi-million dollar homes, this historic property includes the original house plus two accessory dwelling units, or ADUs. One is attached (a “junior” ADU or JADU) and the other is detached.

Each of these  enjoys 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and laundry. Each one has about 1000 – 1100 square feet of living space.


Bedroom 1 A - Los Gatos fixer at 39 Reservoir Road


Unit A is the house, closest to the street, built sometime between 1876 and 1888. It is historic, and it is listed as such with the town.  Unit B appears to be historic as well, but we don’t know the age. (These two are classic Los Gatos fixers and do need a substantial amount of work.)

Unit C is far younger, built in the late 80s. This home provides a large, sunny deck off of the main floor – it tremendously expands the livable area. Inside, there’s a valley view visible from the living room.  Downstairs are the bedrooms, bathroom, garage, and laundry.
