Los Gatos-Cambrian Area Charmer

If you are looking for the perfect combination of affordability and charm, this quaint three bedroom, two bath home located at 5485 Leigh Avenue in San Jose is for you.


This property is a single story ranch home that has been recently remodeled, with a bright and airy open floor plan. The kitchen has a beautiful stone countertop – claimed to be granite but is very uniform, so is probably quartz. Quartz is always a better choice as it is less porous than granite and retains less germs and cooking debris. The cabinets are also brand new, and appear to be cherry wood. All appliances are sparkling stainless steel.

The best feature of this home, other than its location on the Los Gatos border, is the deep and inviting back yard. Fruit trees shade a hammock located in the far corner, making a nice peaceful retreat. It would be a wonderful party, or picnic location.

The three bedrooms all have ample closet space, and the master bath features a Jacuzzi tub. The family room opens via a sliding glass door to the wonderful backyard, and has a great flat screen TV that the owners list as “negotiable”. A wood burning fireplace is always a wonderful hedge against high PG&E bills.

Offered at $739,000, this property has 1228 square feet of living space and a 6,098 square foot lot. It is zoned for the Leigh High School district, and is located very close to all the wonderful restaurants and shops in Los Gatos.
