|Panaoramic view anyone? Hot tub too. The little lights of Saratoga and Los Gatos twinkle at night.|
My talented and lovely friend Barbara is selling her home in one of the most gorgeous spots in Los Gatos, here in the Bay Area. It’s one of those homes that takes your breath away when you walk in, with floor to ceiling windows and views straight out to the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Amazing sunset she sees every night.
The first time I walked in I remember thinking living here is the California dream!
The home’s main floor takes in all the views with open living and a large decks that extend the living space to the outdoors.
|Barb works on her computer here in the kitchen and has breakfast with a view!|
Trees grow through the decks and you really feel like you are in your own paradise when you are there. Wine and dinner on her deck have been some of the most memorable times ever.
The sunsets are divine with the clouds creeping over the mountains from the sea. I told her I’d love to have my morning coffee with that view and frankly, I’d have a hard time leaving the house. It’s that gorgeous. These pictures are beautiful, but don’t even do it justice.
Barb has made this house cozy and charming with her special touches and sense of humor, which made this house a real home, not just a showplace. Though it’s quite large it always had a warm feeling to it that I love!
|Yes that is a salt-water fish tank built into the wall !|
|The other side of the fish tank is in the sunny dining room. Love all the windows and French doors.|
Barb and her love, Jim are off to new places and adventures. Her three kids are grown and she is ready for a change. I get that. She kindly offered to let me share this beautiful spot of Northern California with you all.
Lots of windows which I love in all the rooms, office and baths too.
If all this wasn’t already enough, it’s on Hollywood Avenue!!
The realtors did a fun spoof on the street name and hired a Marilyn Monroe to come -red carpet included!
I adore her front porch too. (Behind Marilyn!)
Who says you can’t live like the stars?
There is an Open House this weekend ! Schools are the top in California here. The home feel like it’s in the mountains, but is a 5-10 minute walk to the quaint town of Los Gatos with it’s shops, restaurants and very close (5 minutes), from all the main hiking and biking paths and trails here.
You get the best of in town living, but feel like you are away from it all… Full house tour is here.
Thanks Barb for letting us see what life is like on Hollywood Avenue!
