Yesteryear Elegance on large family estate in Los Gatos. This classic gated estate property built in 1931, sits on 1.62 acres in the prime Highway 9 corridor. Spectacular grounds are dotted with giant deodar and oak trees, and numerous stone terraced walls and walkways are reminiscent of a quieter bygone era. The grand living room boasts 10-foot ceilings with coved original lath and plaster walls, refinished parquet floors, and is highlighted by a rustic fireplace with stone surround and mantle. Double French doors open up to the elegant formal dining room with crystal chandelier, crown molding, and two large windows with overhead etched transom windows that open up to a wonderful viewing deck. The keynote to this enchanting property is the Hollywood-style swimming pool with arbor and dressing rooms. Incredible potential! Distinguished Saratoga Schools
