Monte Sereno

Buying a Home in Monte Sereno

Spanish for serene hill, Monte Sereno is located in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Named for El Sereno Mountain whose slopes its southern most tip is built on and is still the place of my families home, Monte Sereno is an oasis of beauty nestled between Saratoga and Los Gatos. Entirely residential, there is no commercial zoning in Monte Sereno, and the Real Estate is comprised mostly of single-family homes.  The small town feel, with no sidewalks or streetlights, laid way for John Steinbeck to take up residence while writing some of his most famous novels.

I, too, lived in Monte Sereno for nearly 10 years and will tell you there is plenty to keep local residents active, with neighboring towns offering quaint shops and fine dining.

The city of Monte Sereno shares much with the town of Los Gatos such as schools, city services and community activities like music in the park and kids sports programs. The pristine natural beauty of the Santa Cruz Mountains serves as the town’s backyard, and hiking, biking and outdoor odysseys are available for all nature enthusiasts. This upscale bedroom community offers much sought after peace and tranquility.
