Map of Los Gatos WoodsOne of the largest townhome communities in Los Gatos, the Los Gatos Woods community includes 232 townhouses set on private roads near Pollard Road. This is a very attractive neighborhood and includes many trees.  This area is considered west Los Gatos and is close to the border with Campbell and Saratoga.

Los Gatos Woods is very convenient for those wishing to commute to Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Santa Clara as Quito Road is nearby and becomes Lawrence Expressway. This community is also extremely convenient for those working at El Camino Hospital of Los Gatos or any of the nearby medical centers; it’s probably a half mile on foot or by bike.

There’s a nicely sized, remodeled Safeway and a good number of other shops close by, too, along with the middle school (and the elementary isn’t much further).  Most things seem to be within a mile or so.

What are the homes like at Los Gatos Woods?

Most of the units were built between 1971 and 1973 and most seem to have been renovated since then with dual pane windows, remodeling inside, etc..  Home sizes range from 997 square feet to 2754 square feet, with typical homes being around 1400 – 1700 SF.

The lot sizes vary, too, from about 1921 SF to 2639 SF, and the average being 1850 SF. Homes all include some sort of outside space, often both a back patio and a balcony. All have 2 car, attached garages, and many have driveways which are big enough to accommodate a car (though some are a bit short for that).

How’s the neighborhood?

This is a really beautifully maintained community.  As a general rule, homes are well maintained and you won’t find an overcrowded, junky feel as you sometimes run into in townhouse or condo communities.

The roads and landscaping are in great shape. Homes are attractively painted and in good repair. Trees line the roads and make for a very pleasant experience.

This part of west Los Gatos enjoys Campbell schools: Marshall Lane Elementary, Rolling Hills Middle, and Westmont High. They are highly ranked on the various school scoring websites, with test scores being particularly notable.

One side of the community is adjacent to Highway 85. It is quieter than you might expect, though, as there is a big earthen berm or a bit of a hill between the road and the homes. On the far side of that freeway lie the train tracks and the high voltage power lines. Most people would not consider the lines to be close enough to be of any concern. They should be far enough away that in case of a heavy rain and windstorm, should they blow down, they would miss this community.

What does it cost to buy a home in Los Gatos Woods?

With tight real estate inventory all over Silicon Valley, listings are scarce, and that goes for condos and townhomes, too. Only a few of these units have sold so far in 2016, and only 5 last year. Last year the home sales ranged between the high 900s and 1.5 million in 2018. The pricing will always be dependent on size, exact location, condition, and a few other things (marketing, accessibility of the property, and exact timing of the sale).
