Strathmore neighborhood of Los Gatos

Take in a view of the hills from the Strathmore neighborhood of Los Gatos. Beside Blossom Hill with the coastal range rising behind it, homes here enjoy a beautiful backdrop and nature close by with plenty of access to parks and trails. But the beauty and nature is only one part of the wonderful neighborhood.

Despite its quiet charm, this neighborhood is anything but rural. Easy access and practicality are another major draw. Both the freeway and plenty of shopping are within a mile, and shopping on The Boulevard (Los Gatos Boulevard) is only a little farther (about 2 miles by car). A pedestrian friendly area with sidewalks and tree lined streets, Strathmore is a popular spot for locals to stroll, walk dogs, jog, bike or otherwise enjoy a little of California’s pleasant climate.

Loma Vista, El Gato Terrace, Rancho Padre subdivisions

El Gato Terrace, Loma Vista and Rancho Padre areasIn East Los Gatos, between Ross Creek and Los Gatos-Almaden Road sits a county pocket with a very unique neighborhood. This scenic area has a little bit of everything.

Where is it?

This area is the combination of three adjacent subdivisions, built between the 1940s into the mid 1950s. As seen on the map below, these are:

  • El Gato Terrace
  • The Loma Vista Tract
  • Rancho Padre (Rancho Padre is the only one to touch Ross creek).

Addresses in these subdivisions include Loma Vista Avenue, Linda Avenue, El Gato Lane and part of Escobar Avenue. To the West of this pocket is the Blossom Hill Manor area, which begins at Longwood Drive (the Manor is in a different school district – Los Gatos Unified Schools).
