The master bedroom suite is breathtakingly memorable! Leaded glass windows surround the bed area and cascade colored light through the panes, which act as prisms. With a vaulted ceiling, two triple closets with organizers, a fireplace and bookshelves and media niche too, there’s nothing lacking in this remarkable room!

The master bath is recently remodeled and includes a large steam shower, vanity with double sinks, many built in cabinets, a high ceiling with mouldings and a skylight or sun tunnel to bring light in all day long.

Is Being a Few Blocks from Los Gatos Schools at the Top of Your Homebuying Priorities List?

                 Open House Saturday August 9, 2pm to 4pm
          Great Home, Great Location, Los Gatos Schools!

Last month I listed a great home that’s in an ideal Los Gatos location – close to award-winning, highly acclaimed Los Gatos Schools: Van Meter Elementary School, Blossom Hill School, and Fisher Middle School. It’s also a quick jaunt to the wonderful shops, banks, grocery stores and restaurants at the intersection of Blossom Hill Road and Los Gatos Boulevard.

Recently, the house at 120 Magneson Terrace in Los Gatos got a new roof and a big price reduction. It is a tremendous value!


120 Magneson Terrace (off Magneson Loop and Los Gatos Blvd or Shannon Road)
MLS # 814262
3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms
Living Room, Dining Room, Bonus Room (office, library, music room)
Hardwood Floors
Air Conditioning
Brand New Roof
Quiet cul-de-sac location
appx 1800 SF home
lot size appx 8700 SF

Yesterday the sellers lowered the price dramatically AGAIN, and it’s now a fantastic buy at $1,250,000! Hurry!

120 Magneson Terrace, Los Gatos, CA - new roof, great price!

Folks who should consider this home include those wanting:

“Walk to Schools” or “Bike To Schools” or “Two minute drive to schools”

As well as those who want to be close to buslines, close enough to shops, banks, grocery stores, and restaurants that they could get there without a car.
