The Wedgewood Manor condominium community represents one of the most affordable areas in Los Gatos. Originally a seniors complex, it was converted to be available for all ages many years ago. The smaller next-door Lora Manor condo complex is also on the more affordable end of the scale.

Both of them enjoy a beautiful access road into the neighborhood along the edge of the La Rinconada Golf Club and also boast and highly ranked public schools.

The condo homes are part of the Wedgewood-Rinconada neighborhood off of Wedgewood Avenue and the north side of the La Rinconada Golf Club.

Wedgewood Manor

Located at 14225 Lora Drive, this community is located at the end of Lora Drive in west Los Gatos (close to the Campbell border). It was constructed in 1963 and it includes 108 units,

Homes range between 786 SF and 1050 SF and offer as many as 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, though many of these abodes are smaller. These are often the least expensive homes in town, or tying for most affordable with the Los Gatos Commons (which is a senior community). Heating is central forced air (some may also have small wall heaters).

Many of them have balconies. In some cases. the balconies have been enclosed and made into living space – often an office.

There is a community laundry room, but some units have laundry in the unit.

The main draw is often the affordability factor, which is huge! The biggest negatives are the proximity to the freeway, train tracks, and high voltage power lines, which all run together.

There are carports, but no garages. No pool.

Recently sold condos there have had HOA dues in the range of $472-$672 per month.

Lora Manor

Adjacent to it, and often confused with it, just a little closer to Wedgewood Avenue, is Lora Manor. The address there is 14245 Lora Drive. That is a separate community with 23 units, built in 1974. These typically sell for a noticeable amount more than the Wedgewood Manor homes – they are newer and generally are a bit nicer. That said, it’s a case by case basis and each one has to be evaluated on its own merits.

The units all have 2 bedrooms and either 1 or 2 bathrooms (most have 2 baths, 7 of them have 1). Most of the homes are 900 SF, but one unit is 972 SF.

Similar to the larger neighbor next door, this HOA provides a community laundry room, but some units appear to have inside laundry. Heat is electric (baseboard or small wall heaters).

The 2 most recently sold units there had HOA dues of $540 per month.

There are carports, but no garages. No pool.

Public Schools

This area is part of the Campbell Union School District and the Campbell Union High School District.  The assigned schools are highly regarded and are a major draw for this part of Los Gatos:

Any special concerns?

Every area has strengths and weaknesses. Here the strengths are easy – a scenic drive into the neighborhood along a golf course, great public schools, and relatively affordable housing (relative to the town of Los Gatos).

The negatives are straightforward: the neighborhood abuts the Highway 85 freeway, and along with it, the train tracks and the high voltage power lines.
