Own a piece of Los Gatos history! Built in 1892, this beautiful Victorian property has only changed hands one time in its rich history. Originally built for the Hutchins Family seeking the small town feel of Los Gatos to escape San Francisco, and modernized by the current owner, this home exudes period detailing throughout its proud history!
Authenticity in most every detail is showcased including fir wood floors, and beautiful door and window casings. Admire the intricate balustrade of the handsome spiral staircase that winds up to the second and third floors. Volume ceilings and generous gathering rooms on the main floor flow as each area is as inviting as the next.
The front parlor sets the stage and French doors lead to the study with built-in bookcases. Just beyond, is the bright and cheerful kitchen with beadboard cabinetry and tons of natural light. Enjoy the etched glass in the large picture window overlooking the rear garden. Another beautiful view is seen through the sparkling white French doors and side lights in the dining room, perfect for formal dinner parties or casual gatherings.
On the second floor, two bedrooms with generous sized closets share a full bathroom as well as a spacious bonus room or third bedroom. The master suite is located on the third floor with his and hers closets and spacious dressing area.
The rear yard, also fondly referred to as “the secret garden” is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy. Private and peaceful, the spacious patio is accented with used brick. A lovely gazebo sits at the corner of the garden surrounded by a variety of flowering plants and shrubbery.
Only one block from downtown Los Gatos, enjoy a short stroll to the charming shops and restaurants. A unique opportunity to own a true Los Gatos treasure. Rich in history and period adornment yet updated with all the modern conveniences of today!
