The Live in Los Gatos Blog has the most comprehensive information on Los Gatos neighborhoods, subdivisions and tracts anywhere on the web.

What is covered in the Los Gatos neighborhood posts?

Here you’ll find descriptions on the area, its boundaries, home types, architectural styles,  zoning, and in some cases who built the neighborhood or the history of the land before homes were built on it.  There will be photos or videos of the community and reasons why a particular part of town is popular. As much as is possible, we’ll map out the neighborhood boundaries (it’s not always clear, but often is).  We’ll include information on the local public schools, as well.

Any subdivision will have pros and cons, and we’ll make an honest assessment of the potential negatives, too.  Any home purchase or neighborhood decision will involve compromises of some sort, so it’s important to know what particular issues may exist so that you can make an informed decision.
