Distinguished as the smallest of the Santa Clara County communities, Monte Sereno is ideally situated between Saratoga and Los Gatos and takes full advantage of nearby amenities available in both.
Like Los Gatos, Monte Sereno is well-known for taking a hard line on controlling growth and preserving its tranquil residential setting. Residents enjoy the open, free ‘Country’ feeling provided by large lots that punctuate gentle hills. Against this panoramic backdrop, you’ll find many custom homes and beautiful estates.
The close proximity of Los Gatos’ array of amenities allows residents to enjoy fine dining and shopping, not to mention the educational benefit of their shared public school district. Saratoga, on the other hand, offers a wealth of classes, activities, and events through its community college. Regional parks and trails abound in locations close to home, and a golf course is available just the north of the community.
If Monte Sereno appears to be a small, quiet town of handsome homes filled with residents who depend upon other communities for expanded amenities, the description is accurate. While the local newspaper may joke about “Monte Snoreno,” those who have chosen to settle in this scenic and peaceful haven are determined to maintain the status quo of serenity and quality of life. Environmental awareness among residents is keen, evidenced by the town’s leadership in the recycling movement.
